My rating is based on the perspective of young children and their parents, at whom this game is aimed.

With that in mind, I can truly say that this is great Carcassonne variant for the young ones. It requires tactics rather than memory or dexterity, so in that respect, it's a true 'gateway' game. My daughter of five loves it, and I love it seeing her make her very first tactical moves in a game. Even her two year old sister plays along merrily, happy to place the tiles and put the kiddiemeeples when prompted to. The big tiles with very nice illustrations greatly add to the enjoyment we get out of it.

So yes, in a way, this is my favourite member of the Carcassonne family.

Really impressed with this one and had a blast playing with my 2.5 and 5 yr olds. They understood it all pretty quick. Even though every tile is designed to always fit, I like that a little bit of forethought (dare I say strategy) can help you get all your meeples on first for the win.

Update 5 months later: This is now on my list of must have games for families with young kids. My five year old is catching onto the (small) strategy aspect, and my near three year old plays right along with the rest of us (he does still need reminding of when to put pieces on). Our one year old has watched us play enough (she usually is the city destroying monster), that she knows the meeples are supposed to go on the tiles.

That rating is relative to other kids games. As a grownup game this is no more than a 5... or maybe 6 with the "rainbow variant" where everybody gets a pair of meeples in each color.

The components are just great. Big thick tiles each with unique artwork and the big chunky meeples are fun just to hold. The game itself is a very clever take on traditional Carcassonne. I find even high schoolers having trouble making everything match in regular Carc so making every tile fit every space every time is genius for little kids. I did find there to be a pleasant bit of pre-planning in your tile placement as well giving opportunities to make it easier (or harder) to finish long paths though luck of the draw is always a factor.

My kids - 4 and 2 yrs old - love this game. This weekend, at a lodge with other families, our 4 yr old pulled this one out and introduced two other kids and their mom to the game - and they loved it too. A nice, light game for kids.

It's amazing to watch a 4yo pick it up so easily and grasp the idea of strategic decisions such as whether or not putting a tile down benefits someone other than themselves.

It's a perfect gateway game and a good one to get the kids away from an electronic screen.

Rating for KIDS. This is an excellent introduction to Carcassonne. Kids ages 3-6 are the primary target. The components are top notch, with large meeples complementing some very sturdy tiles. The children can start by just playing tiles and learn to make tactical decisions that will affect the outcome. There is luck involved in when the children of Carcassone get pulled out, and that's perfect for this target audience. Excellent game.

[Amy's Copy]

Enjoyable junior version of the proper game. It encourages tactical thinking and can be played either friendly or competitively. It's also played to completion in 15 minutes which makes it suitable for younger children with shorter attention spans.

All the children from non-gaming families that have played it with us have really enjoyed it.

Great introduction to Carcassonne with big tile pieces and a simple game mechanic that even the 2 1/2 year can enjoy (even if the simple strategy is beyond her). 4 year-old like this, but not as much as Chicken Cha Cha Cha. Kids can quickly migrate to full Carcassonne (now 4 and 5 1/2).

games for little kids (4 to 6) – they learn how to analyze the situation and win but not help the other players. For 6 up I would recommend already “normal” Carcassonne though.

Very good game for kids. I played this a lot with my son when he was five. We reached almost hundred plays

And 20 minutes? Don't make me laugh. We play a two-player game in 3-5 minutes... We reached almost hundred plays. My daughter, on the other hand, was never as interested in this as my son was.

Suggest.

Rated from my daughter's perspective. She loves the game and really enjoys playing it.

For what it is, it gets the job done very well. It's like a primer on tile-laying games for kids. It's nice that every tile is playable in any location, they just have to decide which way benefits them the most.

I like that small children can learn to figure out what benefits them or doesn't benefit their opponents. There's nothing there for adults or older children, but as a father it's wonderful to see your children begin to learn to make good decisions in games.

This is a really nice children game you could play easily with the whole family. My kids played this at the age of 5 and still enjoy the game now with 6 and 9 years!

The components have a really good quality, bigger children meeples and thick card board tiles, larger than the original small Carcassonne tiles. (You could find a picture of comparison in the files/images, here on BGG.)

Without taking care the easy "rules" you could play this with children at age 4 as well, but now older my kids playing this alone without Mom and Dad!

Really neat game for kids that can give them an early start on tile-laying games.

It also can be used to help teach them patience - they often have to be reminded that they can't place their meeples until after completing a road.

The chunky meeples remind me of South Park characters.
