5.0 out of 5 stars house that jack built game 5 Feb 2009

bought for my 3 1/2 year old son, but we play as a family. Really good fun and easy to understand so that he could play with his friends without an adult. Children have to learn to take turns and no real skillinvolved just luck of the dice. As they dice is coloured it is easy to understand and the pieces of the house are coloured to match the dice. Good fun!

I bought this for my 3 year old Daughter hoping we'd have great fun just like my Brother and I did back in the 70's!!!!! It hasn't changed at all. Great for colours, taking turns and it doesn't matter if you come second!! Great family fun.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just like I remembered 6 May 2010
Durability: 4.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 2.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I have been looking for this game everywhere, and it was so simple, I often thought about making my own version when I had kids, as my own well loved copy got lost somewhere (when my parent's ripped up their carpets to get slate flooring they found a green window piece from it, and it was easily recognisable). But my clever mum fpound it on Amazon and had it delivered to my Aunt's house to bring when she fcame for my sister's wedding (because Amazon won't deliver to Australia, slackers!! HINT HINT Amazon!) This game was iconic where and when I was growing up (Scotland in the mid 70's) but when we moved to australia, nobody had heard of it (and it was getting too easy by then, until my sister was born, and we could play together). It is simple, bright, colourful and great fun. Just roll the dice and get the coresponding house part and put the bits togethere.1-2-3! Sometimes, getting my 3yo son and his 2yo cousin to tkae turns is tricky, but a 3yo can usually understand that the 2yo is just excited to play with the dice and the pieces. Only drawback is that to finish the game you are often left waiting for one colour (lets face it, it's usually the black chimney piece you need) and the kids can lose interest a bit if both have lots of rolls and black doesn't come up! It was as much fun for me to play as it was for them, purely because of the immense nostalgia and fondness I have for the game. Don't recall the old version having garage doors though. Houses in the UK must have changed since, but the old version was amost a picture perfect representation of the house we lived in in Stirling!!!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars A board game that a 2 year old will enjoy 25 Sep 2010

It is not easy to develop a board game that a 2 year old can participate in. And this is a rare example of a game that works. My two year old asks to play it, with some simplification to the rules. Reinforces colour recognition, dexterity and house parts. Only downside is that the pieces are not durable enough for a two year old.

4.0 out of 5 stars Family fun 28 Feb 2014
By Claire
Verified Purchase
This is a great game to play with children of different ages as it only requires colour recognition to join in. The concept is simple but engaging for young children and everyone has an equal chance of winning. The only downside is that one bit of the 'house' piece is a bit flimsy and liable to break off, although this doesn't affect the playability of the game.

4.0 out of 5 stars The House that Jack Built.
A great game for children to learn colours but bits don't always lock together easily. Children also learn how to wait for the right throw of the dice.
