Do you want a deep and involved experience defusing bombs, tricking your team mates and using strategic thinking to win the day?
Yes? Well don't buy this.
But if you just want to roll a heap of dice and have a laugh in a short period of time then this is the game for you. Roll the dice, swear as someone takes the one you need, realise you are going to lose, plow on anyway and somehow win.
Just be aware that the soundtrack, pace and fast thinking required might be enough for the little ones. Otherwise fun for the whole family and a worth purchase.
I came downstairs this morning to find my 11 year old son and his 5 year old sister playing FUSE. They'd set it up by themselves and were happily disarming bombs after breakfast. Our box says this game is for 13 years and older. Don't be put off. Simply ignore the time limit and this is still tremendous fun and very accessible to youngsters. It's tremendous for teaching number recognition, sequencing and working as a team. When you introduce the 10 minute timer it becomes a very challenging game. This was an instant hit for my family and perfect for taking on the road. Highly recommended.
