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.

Great game for kids. Rules are simple to explain. I find that my son tries to match colors sometimes instead of finishing roads that would help him.

Great Kids game!, Even the newbie game adults wanted to play it more and it has gotten my kids thinking abut strategy and "aggressive" play. Highly recommend

I love almost all games, play Boardgames with my wife, have three kids, generally enjoy cats and understand and like those bumper stickers with the little fishies sprouting legs.

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.

Rated according the opinion of my daughter and nephew. They like the puzle mechanic very much while at the same there are enought tactical decissions to make the game interesting for them.

A Carcassonne Gyermekei nem kimondottan felnőtteknek készült játék. Ez persze nem azt jelenti, hogy nem élvezhetnénk a játékot vele. Az elemek kivitelezése gyönyörű. Nagyon szépek a rajzok, a lapkák pedig nagyobbak, vastagabbak az eredeti Carcassonne-ban lévő tájlapokhoz képest. Jó érzés kézbe venni az elemeket. Ahogy figyelem itt a BGG-en az értékeléseket, sokan furcsán pontozzák a gyerekjátékokat. Persze, ha a komolyabb stratégiákat igénylő játékokhoz hasonlítjuk a kisebbeknek készült társasokat, akkor valóban egyszerűbbnek, rövidebbnek, és variációs lehetőségekben szegényebbnek találjuk őket. Ugyanakkor szerintem óriási hiba egy kalap alá venni a különböző korosztály számára készült játékokat. És még ezen belül sem mindegy, hogy valamit már 4 évesen is lehet játszani, vagy csak 6 évesen. Óriási a különbség, és igazságtalannak tartom, hogy sok játék azért van alulpontozva, mert a felnőtt, bonyolultabb társasokhoz viszonyítják. Mondjuk a Carcassonne Gyermekei így sem panaszkodhat a helyezésére (na nem mintha számítana, hiszen úgyis csak a saját ízlésünk, tapasztalatunk dönti el, hogy valamit szeretünk-e vagy sem).
Remélem, hogy majd pár év múlva, amikor lányunk. Boglárka nagyobb lesz, sokat játszunk majd a Carcassonne Gyermekeivel is.
