It's easy for kids to play and the cooperation and gem sharing warms my heart. Play generates lots of conversation around probability. Perfect for my 3 little granddaughters.
It works well for younger children, but anyone can play. It's a little too complicated for the 4 year old still but he likes flipping the character flaps down. Our youngest is 3 and our oldest is 8 and our girls love playing this game.
The cards are thin and can be bent easily if you try, but they won't be damaged in regular use. It's a fun game. It’s a convenient size.
The cards fall out in the middle of play and the card holders get jammed. You have to weave the portrait between the bars to get it to stay securely. The cards have to be placed in the holder every 2 mins after falling out.
Just various shades of brown and a few token *. It's difficult to tell the difference between blue and green eyes, for example. Unless someone has really keen eyesight, it’s hard to distinguish between the details.
