This is a great game! I bought it with my 6 year old in mind, but my 10 year old enjoys it too. It arrived this past weekend, and my son (6) was clamoring to play it right away. It took maybe 10-15 minutes to prepare. There are 100 clue cards and you have to stick these little velcro dots to each card. Then you pick your clues and set up the trail. Depending on the age of the kids, they can go off on their own. Littler kids will need help, of course. There is a great mix of clues - some pictures, some simple words, and some riddles. I used a mix - riddles so that my daughter (10) could read and figure out some, and pictures so that my son could lead the way sometimes.
The riddles are cute and clever - and neither too easy nor too hard. I tried to set the clues as far apart as possible - upstairs & downstairs, so the game would take a little longer and they'd have to search harder for the clues. It was a really good time. At the end, they found the treasure - a "gold bar" - which is really a shiny little box which can be the prize all by itself, or it can hold a special treat.
My kids got little Nutella snacks the first time around. The game itself is really nice quality. The treasure map is a really nice thick plastic - like a placemat - with a different scene on either side. It comes rolled up like a scroll, but because it's so thick it was a little hard to keep it unrolled while playing. Instead of storing it in a box, I put it under some heavy items to flatten it out - I'll just have to remember where I stashed it!
The cards are nice plastic-coated and water-resistant. With 100 clues, the game can be played over and over without getting boring and the smaller expansion set is a nice touch. There are clues for outdoor and indoor hunts, and the cards are color coded so they are easy to identify.
There is also a set of blank cards where you can draw or write your own clues. The game comes with a set of 10 gold coins to collect at each clue point, and a little cloth bag to collect them in. And the best part (I think) is the "gold bar" box as the treasure at the end. Again, great quality. My son wanted to play again immediately. I think he will get a lot of mileage out of it. Even though my 10 year old is out of the suggested age range, she really enjoyed it too.
She might not want to play over and over again like my son, but it's a good occasional toy for her. And I think she'll enjoy setting up the trail for her brother and his friends as well. This is a great game, and I actually plan on buying a couple to have on hand for gifts for younger kids.
