Perfect for our young family!
Reviewed in the United States on December 25, 2018
I had played the classic version years ago, but with young kids complicated board games are a little off the table for now. This version was great for me and my big two (6 years and 8 years). They picked it up quickly - the 8 year old won the first game even against both parents. There's still enough strategy to make it interesting but the winner is mostly the one who draws the right cards at the right time.
I know some young kids are ready for the full version early, (and great for them!) but for our household with 4 young kids, we just don't have the time and focus to devote to a long and complicated game. 20 minutes and simple gameplay is about all we can handle before the toddlers tear the house apart.
I would say if the YOUNGEST in the house is focused and able to handle longer games, just get the classic version and adapt for them. But in our situation this one is the winner for the next few years.
