Great family game that is educational (but the kids might not even realize they're learning!)

Pros:Fun game without the need for a lot of violence!

Cons:Can be addictive! Can be difficult for children!

The Bottom Line: Great strategy game with a twist!


I bought this game for myself because I saw it on TV and thought that it looked like fun. I like playing games, but have had trouble finding games that I enjoy. I had played it a couple of times and my 7 and 10 year old nephews came to stay the night...they're addicted now!

The only warning I would have about letting children play is that it can be a little overwhelming for the younger kids. There is quite a lot to be done in order to keep your animals happy. I could see children getting very upset by the constant messages about unhappy animals. But, if you are willing to sit with them and play it is fine. They will learn a lot about animals in the process. As a matter of fact, my 2 year old loves to sit with me when I play. (He LOVES animals!)

All around a great game for family entertainment (and a little education). You just have to realize that your young children will need you to play with them for ultimate enjoyment.
