I have to disagree with the negative reviews. Both my daughters (one of whom is profoundly gifted) enjoyed playing this game. The beauty of this is that - yes, the initial rules are simple, but you can vary it to meet your child's needs and interests. I consider this sort of flexibility in a toy, game or book to be a great strength. So many modern toys are designed to do one thing and one thing only, with no room to stretch or adapt.
- Is your bus full? Bring along a second bus! My children see this happen in real life, and use it as part of the 'story' of the game.
- Is your bus empty? Roll the dice again!
- We also make up stories about who is getting on the bus and how it relates to the pictures on the board.
- You can use the top deckand the bottom deck for additional maths.
Good games, good books, good toys, encourage imagination and initiative. That's up to you.
