Megnet is neither too strong nor too weak, perfect! The pieces look like metal and the weighting (with magnets) gives them a feel more like metal than plastic. It’s compact when folded, but you can still see the pieces/squares with clarity.
For infrequent travel use it seems pretty ok. Very well made and quick on the shipping. Affordable price and good quality product.
This is not just an awesome little travel set, but the algebraic markings make it great for propping up in bed at night and studying from the vast wealth of youtube tutorials. Its nice and portable.
The magnets are not very strong, either. The pieces should be molded with more shallow depressions for the magnets. The colors are practically indistinguishable! It does not work correctly--there is something wrong with the electronics.
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.
Most characters are dark skinned, there is hardly any asian representation, and no obvious hispanic characters. The name that goes with the character are pretty obvious what culture it belongs to.
