Oh no your addicted too now!

You must been tempted to pick up a second hand bargain by now?!

Mine are too young for this but supposed to be great. We just play all the incredible Haba games with our little one.
What a BARGAIN!! I PAID £50 for this a year ago and it's worth every penny. £12 is ridiculous!
Looks really cool, thanks OP

Haven't played it so can't really argue, but it is running a strong 7.6 on BGG so you're maybe a minority opinion (which is totally valid! everyone can't like everything! ). To be fair it's widely recognised that the main SdJ has trended a bit towards the light end since the Kennerspiel came in. The Kinderspiel however is almost always a strong indication of a worthwhile kid's game.

I think it won the competition because it was unique, but basically you take cards with words on, one person is the guesser, and everyone else has to use mini whiteboards to write a single related word ,and you look at everyone's whiteboard and try to guess what the word was.

E.g. your word is 'potato' and people write 'spud', 'edward', 'mashed' and then you look at them and guess potato.

You remove duplicates but there are rarely any duplicates because people try to be clever.

90% of the rounds are literally as trivially easy as the above, and 10% are ridiculously abstract words like 'confidence' which are impossible to guess.

It might be fun for children around 5-6 years old (although it says 8+ on the box) if you remove the words they won't know, but for anyone else it's just dire.

It is similar to Codenames Duet in some ways, but codenames is quite good as it involves trying to link multiple words together and the difficulty of guessing depends on how brave you are.

A much better word game is decrypto, probs the best game of that type I've played, you need 2 teams of 2+ players, it's much better than codenames and very clever. Hard to explain the rules succinctly but you each team has 4 words and one person on each team gets a card identifying 3 of the words (eg it says 2,3,1 on it) and they have to make their team say 2,3,1 by giving a clue for word 2, then word 3, then word 1... but the other team is listening in and recording their guesses, and after a while they'll notice a pattern in the guesses, e.g. if the word in slot 1 is 'apple' and the card is (1,2,3) the decryptor needs to make them say '1' first, so they say 'fruit' and their team will know it's apple so they'll say word 1. The other team will know that whatever is in slot 1 is related to 'fruit' so they'll write that down, and next turn if the giver says 'tree' then they might think, tree/fruit are related so perhaps it's word 1. Even though they don't know what word 1 is. Repeat for all the words, and then both teams will try to guess the order, and they win if they get it right. Then the turn switches and everything is repeated for the other teams' words.

TLDR you have to give really obscure clues that seem unrelated except to your own teammates. Very hard to explain but one of the best team games I've played.

I find Codenames and Decrpto are the same game, but played opposite - if that makes sense! I like them both.

I wonder if you can use Codenames using Decrpto's mechanics..?

My oldest has just turned 4 so maybe I will pick it up for next year, she's a bright little button but little attention span but will come with age I hope. The Haba games are perfect for her at this age. I love them too! We picked up My First Stone Age for when she's older. She will be a board gamer!!!

On a board game group i follow I've seen 4 year olds playing Lords of Waterdeep! There's no way mine could do that.

Mines not arrived yet (new for 12 from amazon) but watched a playthrough earlier and know already I'm going to love it. We quite like Lost Cities and Hanamikoji has elements of that but more strategic

Interesting, thanks for the thorough write up! Yeah, I definitely won't seek it out since we already have Codenames & Duet, plus The Chameleon which is also quite good.
