Not a great game, with very little fun to retain kids' interest
on 1 January 2015
A simplified form of scrabble for the younger player that manages to be simultaneously not that much fun for the playing parent and not particularly interesting for the child. Having tried to play it a few times, it bit the dust pretty quickly. It might seem like a "nice" and "sensible" present to buy a child to help with literacy and spelling, but the game design is poor and the fun side of the equation so low, I can't see many kids playing it other than when forced. You'd be better off playing a dumbed down version of the adult game, or even better, the excellent Bananagrams http://www.amazon.co.uk/Winning-Moves-Bananagrams-Game/dp/B00PFRNEU6 . A bit of a waste of money this one, really.
