I know this is a silly, fun game and not to be taken seriously but is it really only for children or would this still be fun for adults? I know it depends on the people but just generally is it really only going to be fun to play it with children or is it for anyone who doesn't take gaming too seriously? Has anyone enjoyed it in an adult group?

I thought it would be fun, particularly based on Vasel's review of it, but after playing it a few times I decided not to introduce it to my group. It is definitely mainly for children. If you're looking for a goofy game that "requires the right group (of adults)" there are better games out there.

I think this is one of those games that really only works well for kids. Kids do love it, though.

To provide a different point of view: most of my plays have been with adults, and with pretty much all of them it was a big hit. I played it most recently with two colleagues on Thursday. One player kept salting and spoiling all dishes, pancakes were flying about (keep drinking glasses far away from this game!), good old-fashioned fun!

Here's the thing - it's a dexterity game. Does your group enjoy those? If so, this is a decent one. If they don't like the dexterity aspect, then definitely look for a different game.

Ah, now it's back on my 'thinking about it' list

We haven't tried. I was looking to get this as our first one.

My sons (about to turn 3 and 6) love it. My wife also likes it. Of all the adults I have played with (about 10), only 1 did not like it. but he doesn't like any Dexterity game so...If you do get it, get the expansion. Adds a fifth player and a lot of fun.
