              I got this as a Father's day gift for my husband, knowing that he would like something that would promote family time. We all love this game! It is simple enough for our five year old to play and provides enough entertainment for the whole family. We all enjoyed playing this game over and over.

                The kids loved it! I gave it as a gift for an 8 y.o. and a 5 y.o, and they both enjoyed playing it together. Fun and strategic- even the parents enjoyed playing.

                        I didn't play it, just gave as a gift. Neither good nor bad but larger than expected. It was a game for both older and younger children to play together. They seemed interested and pleased, but hadn't play it yet.

                          I bought this as a Christmas gift for my five year old. It is hard to find a game that involves all of us and keeps us entertained. Usually my five year old is too young, or his games are too boring for either his older ten year old sister or us. I wanted to get all of us away from the television. It is a great alternative to "screen time" with video games or internet as well.
