This game is uniquely designed, and out of the ThinkFun deduction solitaire games, the least sequential. That, plus its visual scheme that encourages youngsters to think in overlaid patterns, makes it excellent for visual-spatial reasoning development.

Typical of the Thinkfun solitaire games, the puzzles are arranged in stages, from easiest to most difficult (four stages for Clever Castle). However, the game only begins to really test deductive skills a few puzzles into the second hardest level, named "Hard". This means that the truly fun challenges are limited to less than twenty total. In fact, the only real drawback I can find in the game is the limited number of levels. It would be nice if ThinkFun would at least offer extra levels, either for free on the web or as a paid add-on.

I would not be afraid to get this game for a child in the 2-4 year old range. They would at least be able to do some of the puzzles, and could grow into the harder ones over time. My 4-year-old was able to finish all 40 levels, though not at one sitting, and my 2-year-old learned to play the game relatively quickly as well.

I ordered this for my son for his third birthday based on the reviews here. We are almost through the "Easy" level. I am a little concerned that he will have a hard time as the levels go up, but we are both enjoying it so far. I am amazed to see his mind working as he studies the clues and places the characters in their spots on the board. Although it is recommended for independent play, younger children definitely need some guidance. One of the perks is the bag that the smaller pieces fit in for travel. This would be a great game for a long plane ride.

I bought this game for an older child, but my 4 yr old is figuring it out and she likes it a lot. she can only do the easiest puzzles now, but there are so many different ones that get progressively harder, I'm sure she will enjoy this game for several years. Very good problem-solving toy. Great quality, as is every Thinkfun game I've seen.

I am always searching for something for my just-turned-4-year old son that he can play alone (without a buddy, without mom or dad!) I bought a few of the "Think Fun" games, and this one is by far the biggest success. He loves to start with the "easy" ones and then work up to tackle a couple of the "trickier" ones. Of course he asks for a little help now and then (that's just his nature), but overall, it's a cute game that is the first to keep him entertained for a few minutes by himself. It fits neatly into a cloth sack, with very few loose pieces. We also tried the Think Fun frog-hopping game (another "do alone" game for small children). He isn't getting into that one as much, but that one may be more appropriate for kids that are a little older, say 5 or 6 years old. I highly recommend Clever Castle for parents needing a little bit of a break and wanting to encourage some independent play in needy youngsters.

This is an easy to use, well-made logic toy, but I was disappointed that my just turned six year old could do every puzzle easily. I would have labelled this for a 3-5 year old group. Fortunately I have a three year old and this will be great for him!

I got this for my daughter when she turned 5 and she tore through the game pretty quickly. She really loved it and would not put it down, so I am glad we got it, but I think the 5-7 age range is a little high. She was able to complete all the levels having just turned 5. She had to really think the later ones through and had to redo some, so it was a challenge, but I dont think a 7 year old would have too much interest in the game. The early levels are really easy. We have two other kids and her 4 year old sister is now starting to play with it. My oldest will still go back and do some of the later levels if her younger sister gets the game out, but it's no longer something she picks out herself.

My son received this game as a Christmas gift. He is 7 years old and has Autism and he loves this game. With minimal assistance he can complete the super-hard level. This game has improved his ability to look at the pictures and then spatially rotate things to achieve the desired result. We order a second copy so he can keep on at school to use as a reward.

Our 5 year old went through the entire booklet of puzzles in 2 days and since the company provides no others (this seems like it could be easy to produce and provide online), she has never played with it since!
