Just purchased as a Christmas present for young nephews. May ask them to keep it here. That way I can play when they're away. Hey, they've got more toys than Mattel. It's beautiful, tilts very easily,rules are straight forward. Guess who can barely wait for them to open it.

Opened it on Christmas Eve and it is already a hit. We created a new version by playing it with 4 people as teams. We are all adults so I can't tell you how it would play with a younger audience.see moreof the reviewer's review
