We play this with our four (almost five) year old grandson. I originally got it thinking my husband might be willing to play it...as he loves history and hates video games. Well it was an all around winner. The best thing is my hubby will play this game WITH our 4 year old grandson. Our grandson has learned the names of about 75% of the presidents. He recognises their pictures and has retained at least one fact about them. We have to read him the clue...but he'll say, that's Chester Arthur...and pick out his picture. Unbelievable. All to be able to launch a president at a bunch of aliens. Even shooting the aliens has some strategy involved...do I bank the shot, which area gets me the most aliens with that particular presidents abilities. Both of "my guys" just love it. I am one happy Grammy.
This game is well set up, great graphics, and one can actually challenge the memory bank and learn new things by playing. I enjoyed the well thought out graphics. Seems a bit sacrilegious to be throwing a president at an Alien at times...but it is great fun. It works for all levels, from genius first graders to grandparents. Bravo and keep these games that are fun and actually intelligent without excessive violence coming!
This game is teaching my son about the presidents. It is a great game for the whole family. I have learned alot. We play it in the car on long car rides. He reads the question out loud with the answer choices and we all pick what we think. Then we find out the answer.
Not only has this fun game taught our 11-year-old and seven-year-old kids all about the American presidents, it has encouraged their interest in American history. Proof positive: when our family visited the presidential portraits in the National Portrait Gallery in Washington D.C., our kids blew all the visitors away when they identified each president's face and could name the president, which number president he was, and the name of his vice president. If only there were other games to encourage studying. Can someone please develop "Famous Literary Authors v. Aliens" or "Famous Scientists v. Zombies", please?
This game is way better than i expected. 9 year old son loves it and will ask the adults for answers and they fight to be the one to answer. When my teenage daughter who took AP US History plays it with her friends for a bit, you know its good.
Answer a question correctly, earn a president's head to toss at aliens. Obstacles increase, random abilities for some presidential heads help to defeat the aliens. No intrusive ads. And you might accidently learn something.
