Memory game, dice rolling and storytelling proves to be a winner combination for playing with my 5-year old. I have only one problem with this game: the length of it. According to the box this game should last 15 minutes. Has anyone played the game in 15 minutes? Even the shorter variant (10 fewer tiles) takes 45 minutes for us. Okay, my son likes telling longer stories than needed but... 15 minutes? For a game where you have to make up 40 (or 30) short stories, roll the dice and move, then remember the tile and retell the stories attached to the given tiles at least 33 times?

That means on average you have twenty-few seconds to:
- roll the die
- move the badger
- remember and retell (shortly) the story at the location
- reveal the tile, be happy, collect it
- reveal a new tile
- create and tell a short story that connects the picture shown with the given location,
- place the tile face-down there
- and pass the dice.

I find this tempo to be challenging even amongst adults. But with kids... Is it even possible at all?
