By Isabella E. Bertelli on June 16, 2009
My 30mth old loves this game. A little long to play at his age, but it is designed for a little older age range. The four decks of cards are designed to increase literacy skills. If you draw an Alpha Pig card, you match the lower case letter on the card to the upper case letter on the board, Princess Presto cards you find the letter that the picture starts with. The last two sets of cards are a bit further along in development then he is(game is for 3+ by design), but that only means the game has room to grow with him. Wonder Red cards you need to rhyme with the words on the card, and Super Why cards, you replace the silly word with what makes sense. My husband and I assist him a lot if he lands on the last two set of cards. My son does not seem to mind and I love how educational and fun this game is. I love the great way to reinforce learned skills and introduce new ones. The best is he does not mind to wait his turn. This game not only would benefit the preschool crowd, but even K-1 remediation skills for those with delays or lack of prior exposure. I am buying a copy for my classroom for the literacy center.

I bought this game for my two girls, ages 3 and almost 5. Both are super why fans. My three year old knows her letters and sounds, but cannot read at all. Nor can she spell. This game was way too difficult for the 3 year old. My almost 5 year old can read and the game was good for her. She loved it!

During the game, the readers go around the board and pick up four types of cards. Each type is associated with a different task. The simplest task shows lower case letter and the child must identify the upper case letter on the board. My 3 year old can do this. The second easiest task shows a picture of an object. The child has to identify the first letter or two (if a combined sound like "th" or "sh") on the board. This is too difficult for my 3 year old. The third task shows a picture on the card and the child has to find the word matching the picture on the board. This is too difficult for my 3 year old, easy for my 5 year old (she can read). The fourth task is the hardest - the child has to come up with 2 or three rhyming words. This one is complicated, as the child needs to come up with real words and would be hard for a child who cannot read. Obviously, this is too hard for my 3 year old.

I believe that reading IS required for this game. This game is most appropriate for early readers - kids who can read and are just learning to read. It is not appropriate for kids who are not close to reading.

I have fallen absolutely in love with this game and so has my 3 year old:-) My son is getting really excited about learning to read by himself, and this game helps give him confidence in doing so. Although he isn't quite reading yet, this game is helping to get him there!

The children chose one of the main characters from "Super Why" to move around the game board. They use the spinner to tell them how many places to move and then draw the card of whomever they happen to land on & draw that person's card. If they land on Alpha Pig they match upper and lower case letters. For Wonder Red they rhyme words (i.e. pig & dig rhyme, say 3 more words). If the player lands on Princess Presto they point to the first 1 or 2 letters of a word. Finally, if they land on Super Why they either point to the word that matches the picture on their card or point to a word on the board that should replace the underlined word on their card.

When my son and I play it generally takes a little less than 10 minutes to finish the game, so he doesn't get bored and likes to play 2 or 3 times. Also, like the game says, "The goal of this game is to help children develop their early literacy skills...while having fun!" so helping your child get the correct answer is definitely the way to go!

My kid, at 30 months old, can watch the Super Why TV show -- and be thoroughly entertained -- he even appears to be understanding a great deal of what is going on, and sometimes supplies the correct answers at the appropriate times during the show. But in the format of a board game, he can maybe answer the questions of one or two of the characters. Obviously this is because the game is dependent on correct answers to progress, unlike the show.

Anyway... it looks like it is going to be a great first board game for my son a year from now -- I'd just also like to drop the warning (like another reviewer) that the target audience for the game might be a little older than what's on the show.

I went by the reviews and bought this for my son in hopes it would help him to read. It's not exactly what I expected and not all that much fun for us. There basically has to be an adult to play it if he doesn't already know how to read but I feel like it's kind of pointless to play with him. Obviously I'm not going to have any problem playing myself.
How the game works is you spin a spinner to determine the number of spaces to move. Why there's a "Spin again" option is beyond me, but it goes 1-4 and "spin again". You move your character the number of spaces and either land on an Alpha Pig, Wonder Red, Princess P or Super Why. Each character has a different type of challenge.
Alpha Pig is for learning letters from lower case to upper case. For example: "Point to the uppercase letter that matches b" is one of the cards. You would then point to the letter on the board (it lists all the uppercase letters in the middle of the board).
Wonder Red is for rhyming words. For example: "CAKE rhymes with RAKE. Say three words that rhyme with CAKE and RAKE."
Princess Presto is for sounds of letters. For example: "Point to the first letter in the word <shows a picture of grass>". Again you point to the letter on the board.
Super Why is for learning words. For example: "Point to the word on the board that makes Super Why's silly sentence make sense: The bird sleeps in a PAN". You would then point to the word "Nest" on the board. There are roughly a dozen or so words on the board to choose from.
If you answer the card correctly you get to keep the card. Once everyone reaches the end (about 18 spaces later) the person with the most cards wins.
