One of the reviews says that the Dragon Tales Matching Game (a rethemed Chicken Cha Cha) includes easy and hard variations in the rules. I didn't notice any such in the Chicken Cha Cha rules (Do I just need to read them more carefully? I'm not at home now so I can't double check...)

Anyway, does anybody care to post a summary of what these are? Thanks.

From the game rules --

Quote:
For an easier game for younger players:
Use only 6 octagonal tiles in the center, and the 12 matching oval tiles for the path. This is a good, quick two-player game.

For a more challenging and longer game:
Players can choose to collect only one item at a time when they fly over another dragon who is carrying more than one item. This way they will have to fly over their opponent again to collect another item.

Thanks! The easy variation makes a lot of sense, especially when only two players are playing.

It sounds to me like the "hard" variation would just drag the game out...that means that if a chicken has two feathers, you would actually have to lap it to get them both. Ugh.

Notice that in the hard variation, it says a player "may" collect only one feather. I took that as, the "parent" takes only one feather, while the child can take them all, which makes this a way to handicap the game. Although, kids are so good at memory games, usually it's me who needs the handicap.

What I do to play with my two years old son (besides removing some tiles) is letting him try twice (and only twice) if he misses.
