My adult kids enjoy all sorts of games. I got sets of Quiddler for all their families for Christmas. It was a little different from the board and card games they usually play. It wasn't hard to pick up on the rules. We are hoping this is a game that school age children can participate in as well.
I bought this game based solely on description and reviews - we have not been disappointed! The more we play it, the more we like it. We have brought it out at two game days now with friends and it has been a hit. Game play: game consists of eight hands. The first hand everyone is dealt three cards, each subsequent hand has one card added so that by the eighth and final hand, there are ten cards. You basically have to make words with the cards in your hand, drawing and discarding to accomplish this. You lay down your hand, with word or words and you MUST have one discard! (This part gets frustrating because sometimes you want to use all your cards, but it also makes it interesting!) My six year old has played with us, he enjoys the game but needs help rearranging the cards in his hand and "seeing" the words. (He rated this game 4 stars.) Overall, we really enjoy this game and it works well with kids, adults, and groups - we recommend Quiddler!
