What our experts think

The game proved popular with children over 7 years old, with several children aged 10 reluctant to stop playing (in fact they took the basic game and added their own rules to extend play further). For younger children  (preschool aged) they needed adult help all the way through but that didn’t stop them enjoying the game.  Adult testers reported that it was difficult for children aged 3 to remember more than 4 objects, so the game was tailored to include fewer objects. 

The game is an excellent tool for developing children’s memory skills and attention to detail, with a high level of replayability. It also supports children in developing social skills, as they must take turns and demonstrate good sportsmanship. The children continued playing until a winner emerged, showcasing extended levels of concentration and perseverance, even when the game was challenging or required adult support.
