My children first played this with two Germany children,they were all under the age of six. With the help of a Mum as translator they all found the game enjoyable.They learnt to count in each others languages and enjoyed being able to move the mice around at the risk of being caught by the cat and losing their acquired cheese.There was also the fun of climbing the ladder and sliding down the chute in the cheese .
They must have enjoyed it as they've asked for one for Christmas.
This is a truly BEAUTIFUL game to enjoy for children!
As always from Ravensburger; the game has some truly good quality and sturdy components that will probably last a lifetime - no cardboard part here! BEAUTIFULLY designed mice, cat and unit - nothing cheap and no expense spared! The game is enjoyable at any age as light entertainment, and it's the usual fun and thrill of the mice being caught by the cat - but there's quite a few different rules and `quirky' things that go on thrown in for good measure!
I can't imagine any young child not loving this game!
