Only recently started playing decent board games, so bear with me a bit

Own:
Pandemic
Titcket to Ride Europe
BatMan Love Letter
Formula D
Camel Up


Also played:
Carcassonne
Hey, that's my fish
Istanbul
Kill Dr Lucky


My dilema really is this, i have a 9 year old daughter who loves the lighter games like Camel Up, TTR, Love Letter, Kill Dr Lucky and The fish game.

But i have 2 older sons who love the more complex games, will this game scratch everyones needs or will i end up just playing it with my younger child before she grows out of it?

It looks really good and fun, but i just want to check

My three kids (10, 9, 7) all enjoy the game. It can be a little long for a game of this type but still enjoyable. I've taught it to adults and they enjoy it as well. Length is the only negative factor in my experience.

I think this game is actually very good at working for all ages. I've played it with adults and teenagers and kids as young as 8 and it was a hit with everyone. I haven't found the length to be an issue like the above poster, but if you did the countdown timer which determines the end of the game can easily be shortened.

played second game today....its a bit more strategic than it can first seem

good game, and it can be played with children for giggles but i feel that the more strategic gamer might just win all the time, although there is an element of randomness with the marbles

important that people also drink their potions, a potion not drunk is basically a wasted turn

only played it twice....looks like it could be a winner
