Both my 5yrs old Son & 8 yrs old daughter enjoy this game very much, and they often play it just by themselves without any of us ,Parents being involve.
I bought it to offer a light, fun card game to my eldest (9) for a different option than UNO, and hoping I’ll have that game on offer for my youngest (4.5) in the next few years. I knew not too expect too much, yes it is a kids game..
I think the age is overrated. Remove the maths part and I think a 5 years old could handle it, especially in a 2 to 3 players game: only 5 cards to handle, games under 10 mins, characters / powers easy to remember…
To play with my 9 years old and a small number of players I’m definitely going to have to try to spice it up a bit: remove some wands and dragons, make us get more queens or go by points only (like it has to be 50 points exactly), and had more queens combinations that don’t fit etc…
Anywhooo, the idea behind the game is great, I like all the trick cards, the art work is fantastic. It’s just that being rated for 8 years old + I was expecting a wee more … or it should be specified best at 4 players or more.
More queens more kings. Love it. Go this over the origional. So fast to pick up. Great to learn some maths and sums for kids. 4years and up play well. Everyone I have told about it raves about it. Winner here. Addictive to the kids.
