I have 4 children: 5(girl)-7(boy)-9(girl)-12(boy).

The eldest likes to tell everyone what they should do, and my eldest daughter believes SHE knows best. The 5 year old just stays away (for now) and the 7 year old is really enthusiastic.

Space Cadets removes several of the social situations in that everyone is BUSY during the timer, and each mini-game is random and different. Having a player who is 'weak' on a mini-game can be overcome by positioning to some extent... and being cooperative, we all win or lose together.

With Valeria (age 5), we play quite often this one. But we win not so often!
Materials are gorgeous, rules are smart.

First boardgame Valeria ever played, when she was maybe 3. It worked fine indeed and materials are nice too, even if it's not interesting for adults.

Play this with my 7 & 11 yr old girls - started when they were a year younger. biggest issue that I've seen is the youngest loses focus 75% way through the chapter

Works well with my kids (12, 10, 8; the 5 year-old doesn't play).

Fun game. Beautiful, elegantly designed, not overly complicated, and quick.

There does seem to be some hate for it, but I think most of the haters are just looking for something heavier. At any rate, it's great for kids.

I have a 4 year old and a 6 year old both girls.

I know some of the cards have adult jokes on them but the game play for this one engages my kids in an awesome way.

The silly dice chucking at the target is what keeps them engaged.meeple
