This is an excellent family game which is especially suitable for families with age gaps between children. We have 3 children, ages 4, 6, and 12. This is one of the few games where everyone can compete equally, as the younger children seem to have much better memories for where the vampires are buried.
The quality of the materials and artwork is very good, much higher quality than Candyland. The theme is great, my children are enthralled by vampires. These vampires are happy and cute, not scary, to me they look more like gnomes.
The game play is simple, be the first one to bury all your vampires inside the graves. Each of your vampires is a color, when you flip over a grave lid you are trying to match the back of the lid to the color of your vampire. There are some twists with garlic, plagues, and stakes.
This game takes 30 minutes to play. This is quite a while for younger kids, but I don't find my younger ones bored or phasing out. They love this game. It's one of the best games we've purchased to play with our children.
