Starting Age - 4, but the game improves the older the child gets as the child will have a better comprehension of the card drafting mechanic.


Will children like this game - Yes. Winding up the zombies and letting them walk is simply fun. Even if the child can not fully play the game, he will have fun playing with the zombies.


Why is this good with children - Teaches good motor skills for younger children. Older kids will learn the strategy of card drafting and timing.


Parents Frustration Level - Very low. The game is fun.

Starting Age - 3 - 4 years old


Will children like this game - Yes

Why is this good with children - Children don't understand the rules of the game enough to actually play the game. However, they have a great time with the colors, naming shapes and counting pieces. It is also wonderful for learning puzzle solving skills.


Parents Frustration Level - Low. It is fun to build with your kids.

Starting Age - 3


Will children like this game - Most certainly. In fact, I think most children will have more fun simply building cooties instead of playing the game.


Why is this good with children - It teaches good fine motor skills while building the cooties and reemphasizes turn-based mechanics.


Parents Frustration Level - Not too bad. The game does tend to drag on a bit since it is totally luck based, but it fun building cooties.

Starting Age - 4 to learn how to flick the puck. But they will not know to score. Ages 8 - 9 for a full game.


Will children like this game - Yes. It is always fun flicking pucks across the board.

Why is this good with children - Great Hand-Eye coordination.


Parents Frustration Level - Low. While younger children will not grasp the concept of scoring, it is still fun to play.

Will children like this game - Yep. Breaking the ice is good silly fun.


Why is this good with children - Teaches good fine motor skills while using the hammer to break out the ice pieces.


Parents Frustration Level - High. The game usually lasts about 2-3 minutes and then it takes about that same time to reset the game so you can play again. Plus, the game is NEVER played only once. A dozen plays at one sitting is about the norm.

Will children like this game - Yes. Great to slam hippos.


Why is this good with children - This game is fair and equal to all players.

Starting Age - 3, but it gets better the older the child gets.


Will children like this game - This depends on the child and how the game is taught. Children will have fun rolling the dice, but could become frustrated.


Why is this good with children - Teaches wonderful counting and adding skills for young children. Older kids will learn good decision making skills.


Parents Frustration Level - Minimal. I actually enjoy this game. It is a fine multi-player solitaire game with a good dice mechanic.

Starting Age - 4. That is about the age children have enough motor skills to not knock everything down.

Why is this good with children - Teaches good motor skills for younger children. Older children will learn about consequences and will begin to strategize about proper movement of pieces.
