This is the third time I have bought this game, but the first time to keep it for ourselves. This is a thinking skills game that even small children can learn and enjoy. When we play with little children, we talk about the points, but we don't keep track of the points. With older kids and adults, it can get very competitive.
We LOVE this game. For my "healthy" 7 yr old, this is a fun and fantastic thinking game. The 2 yr old, likes to match the colors and shapes. For the 2 special needs 10 yr olds, it can be frustrating, as there is problem solving, logic and thinking skills that are tough for them. Nevertheless, this is our favorite family game.
Similar to Scrabble, players must lay their tiles down according to color-matching, or shape-matching, or both. The more advanced players will be able to do both on many moves, while the younger players will still succeed as they match according one aspect or the other.
