Reeve Review: This game is great and we highly recommend to any child. The game is so versatile that we keep coming up with new ways to play it. Actually, our daughter enjoys just going through the different cards (all with bright pleasant color scales). The cards are very durable and high quality, which makes it easier for people with poor manual dexterity to hold them or shuffle them around. The game has reusable packaging and is pleasant to play with alone or with other players; it is so versatile, you can play different levels of difficulty; even players with excellent memory could find a challenge in the game. –Iris Mehler, mom to daughter, Keren Neora Rak-Mehler, age 5 living with Cerebral Palsy
