I loved Sleeping Queens because it has so many beautiful queens. Because they had such beautiful dresses and I loved the counting and taking my Daddy's Queen and also I loved the knight how I stole Daddy's Queen. Also just that I loosed was funny for me because I learned something: I should play better next time.

This is my kids' favorite parlor (card) game.

I don't play it with them much, but it is completely harmless and picturesque fun and captivates their imaginations. They play it over and over on their own. I'm glad the boys like to play a fun game in which they can include their little sister.

Great bang for the buck. Highest recommendation.

This game is an absolute 10. Here is what I base this on.

- My kids love it and will even play it without me
- I enjoy playing it with my 9 year old daughter
- The artwork is cute but not lazy
- The cards are good quality
- The rules are easy to learn
- The match component of getting rid of number cards is excellent
- It fits nicely in a deck box for travel
- Inexpensive
- Did I mention that it is even fun for me, even though I have played much much much more complex and interesting games?

When I heard the learn’d astronomer; When the proofs, the figures, were ranged in columns before me; When I was shown the charts and the diagrams, to add, divide, and measure them; When I, sitting, heard the astronomer, where he he lectured with
badge
much applause in the lecture-room, How soon, unaccountable, I became tired and sick; Till rising and gliding out, I wander’d off by myself, In the mystical moist night-air, and from time to time, Look’d up in perfect silence at the stars. W.W.

Rated as a game for children.

Quick and enjoyable card game; although it's rated for ages 8 and up, don't let that scare you. My four-year-old can play, though the math side is a little complicated for her (so we don't play with the addition problems and make all of the queens equal in value). Still, she gets the concepts and the colorful artwork is right up her alley.

excellent game, for girls, boys, and interested parents. Colorful pleasing art, no reading necessary, thematic fun, easy to play and remember - this one's a winner kid's game. We may well need a second copy of this - we are playing it more than any other game ever with our son! And we still have yet to give the 2nd copy to our nieces!
Update - gave the copy to our nieces, and they have been playing and enjoying it, as well.

Update - (raised rating from 8.5 to 9) this has to be one of the (if not the) best games for children around. Pacing, involvement, and game length are all very strong.

Update, many years along - don't make the mistake of thinking this game is just for girls.
And don't think it's just for 6 or 7 year-olds, either - it scales to both genders and for a wide range of ages, I'd say 4 to 12 years old, easy. And my 13 year old son still loves playing it.
A good game is a good game.

House rules -
1) You can discard any number of matching number cards, not just pairs. So if you're stuck with 3 6's you can discard them all during one turn to grab 3 new cards.
2) You can likewise discard any number of matching power cards, if you choose. So if you're stuck with 3 Magic Wands but have no queens out, you could discard all of them and get 3 new cards.

This is a great little card game. A little math, a little mystery, and some good old fairy tale are crafted into this little game. Picked this up for my mom for a Christmas gift and it became one of our favorites when we wanted a quick game to play. The story of how the game was created (by a child with parental assistance) is fantastic! Who could not like the Pancake Queen and her buttery thighs? My wife, mother, and I will play this game any time we need a light filler.

This is my 6 year old daughter's rating. This is even after she cried when I took her queens with my knights and put them back to sleep with my potions. "I love it because it's all about queens and waking them up." I enjoy playing it with her. The pictures are very well done and fun to look at. Unless we run out of time, we usually play 3 games at each sitting.

Excellent game for young kids. Currently my 5-year-old's favorite. He loves defending his queens by slapping down the dragon and wand cards. Lots of laughs in this game. Works for both boys and girls. Addition option to trade in cards is a nice, little incentive to do a little math.

Artwork is very well done. Cards, however, could be a little more heavy-duty or better quality, but for the price they're ok.

I've been on this site for 10 years now, and I'm far from sick of games, but I think I am, to some degree, sick of learning too many new games. I'm also tired of playing 4+ hr multiplayer games, but I'll still happily play really long games 2 player.

[50 plays] This is a 10 for the intended audience, and about a 6 for adults - so I'll give it an 8. The artwork is great, the names of the cards are very fun, and children have such great fun with the theme. I highly recommend this inexpensive card game for any family with young children.

Most recent plays March '14 with Etta and Orrin.

Definitely a game for the kids, but not bad for the parents, either.

Positives: Great artwork with funny character names. The theme is very appealing, and the play is easy enough to accommodate young kids (I would lower the recommended age; a child only needs basic math skills to play independently, and with help or rules adjustments, even younger kids can play). The number cards are a fun way to practice math. The "take that" factor is fun and light enough for kids to handle, and they love it when they're able to counter with a dragon or wand card.

Negatives: Too much repeated play gets boring (for the adult). The card quality could be higher.

For the intended audience, this game is a hit. My 4-yo loves it, and he's learned how to make simple addition equations. For my 6-yo, we make the math a little more challenging by allowing any equation that can be made with the numbers. It's certainly worth the price.

I got this game for the kids to play, but we all enjoy it. The rules are easy and clear, the artwork is great, and the play is lots of fun. It's a very light card game, but everyone really has a good time playing. My children would rate it a 9, but I would rate it a 7, so it's an 8. Highly recommended to anyone with children between 6 and 9.

Rated for kids. My 4 1/2 y.o. daughter's favorite game. A "10" for her as she will currently play it anytime, anywhere. My 7 y.o. son enjoys this as well. Great family game that has helped get us all together in the evening for some family time and has led to playing even more games. We also take this along any time we'll need to be sitting for awhile and need to fill the time. Fun artwork - highly recommended game for kids. One of Gamewright's best!
Addendum: This and Pick Picknic have been great games for helping my 4 y.o. to learn to add small numbers in her head.

My daughter is now 10 and still loves this game. We just purchased the 10th anniv. edition and the new queens and kings are a hit!
