As one of the top online toy retailers, we have access to unprecendented quantities of product review data. One of the key ways that we use this data is by associating our products to the specific ages and genders of the kids who are playing with them. Whereas most retailers must rely upon manufacturer suggested ages (i.e. 3+), we take actual customer usage and share it with you here so that you can choose the perfect toy or game.
But how does this help me? You can use these graphs as a general measure of it's appropriateness for a given age and gender. While this information is generally accurate, it should not be used as an absolute answer. For instance, many dinosaur toys are purchased for boys, however, that doesn't mean that it's inappropriate for a girl who happens to like dinosaurs.
NOTE: The orange color in the charts above indicate ages that are LESS than the manufacturer suggested age. Please purchase at your discretion if your child is younger than 5 years of age.

I purchased it for my grandson but his birthday isn't until May. I couldn't find the game anywhere so when the chance came up to get it here I took advantaged of it. I know he'll love it. He loves to draw maps and etc.

Interesting game, but a little slow to keep young minds entertained. I played with my grandchildren, aged 7, and they would lose interest before we got through all of the tiles. I found it better to play with fewer than the total amount of tiles when there are fewer than 8 players involved.
Off to a good start

My son loves maps and puzzles and this seemed like the perfect mix. He is just about to turn 5 and is enthusiastic about playing with it. The game gets to be a bit long for his attention span when playing with only 2 players, and he may be a bit young yet to be able to track and plan with all of the cards required to play. That being said, it's a wonderful game that takes strategy, planning, and a bit of luck. I definitely think our family will be playing for years to come.
