PRODUCT STORY
Your little buccaneers will be swept away by the swashbuckling fun of this treasure hunt game set. Embracing an old-fashioned, electronics-free vision of playtime, it unearths hours of priceless, creative fun from the simplest materials: a cotton pouch printed with a game board on one side and treasure map on the other, natural rubber checkers, die-cut image tiles, and matching images on a set of cards. The instructions map out five different games that teach shape recognition, memory and thinking skills, but the set also encourages children to invent their own fun adventures as well. Made in China.
MATERIALS
natural cotton, natural rubber.

Katie's always hunting for great, creative games, and we think this one could be a valuable addition to our assortment. Would a clever kid in your life treasure this toy?

kind of cute, for kids at a birthday party. Though I hope there are more pirate movies coming otherwise... $25 might be too pricey.

I agree that $25 might be a bit steep for this, but love the concept of having kids away from a TV and playing an actual board game. It's different than the usual go-to games (Trouble, Monopoly, etc).

Far too many small pieces. Too many board games are trying to compete with complex electronic games and this is the perfect example. Keep it simple and classic!

Is it checkers on the back? I think that the price is great.

I appreciate the materials from which it's made--I just don't find it appealing. It didn't grab my attention nor peak my curiosity.

this would be good for younger kids to have to help them learn. I also like the price because usually games like this cost over $30, sometimes even $40

$25.00 for a game for 3 is a lot. Wish you had a "maybe" or "unsure" button.

I don't know a kid who doesn't love a treasure hunt (and lots of adults too I'm sure!), so this looks like it'd be lots of fun.

About $15- 20 would be more appropriate. A hunt is always a hit with kids.
