My family enjoyed this a lot, even though we only got through 90% of the puzzles. I'm only giving it 4 stars because it is extremely expensive considering it is only an hour long. If they were cheaper I would probably try all of them!

This was great for my teenaged nephews! Very clever set up... The puzzle was pretty difficult for older generation but it was fun seeing the teen boys buzz around and solve puzzles!

I believe it was $20 each. Well worth the mental exercise and cheaper than a bar tab.

Our recommended age for a group is 14 and older. However our games can be incredibly fun for younger players who are participating as part of a family.
