Make in Break Junior is way better
on October 20, 2012
We ended up with both the regular and junior version and I have to say that my husband and I enjoyed the junior version way better (even after the kids had gone to bed).
This version requires a lot of waiting. You roll the dice, set the timer to 1, 2 or 3 and try to build with blocks to copy as many cards as possible. I found the randomness of how much time you get kind of frustrating. I definitely prefer games with less randomness and more skill. It's frustrating if your opponent gets more time than you. Basically it's a solitaire game you can play with other people.
The components are quality Ravensburger (except for the timer which is kind of chincey). The only kind of weird thing is that one block is almost black, but is actually a navy purple color. The card shows the block as purple and that kind of threw me at first, but my work involves work with color and most people probably wouldn't notice.
Basically, I found this game boring. The Junior version is much faster paced, involves competition, is more equitable, etc. Don't waste your time with this one!
