I bought this game for one of our grandsons for Christmas. He loved it, and so did his younger brother. Actually, the adults got in on it too, as soon as they saw how much fun the boys were having. It promotes reading skills, and teaches something about science, biology and more, all while playing the game. Be prepared. Some of the things you're asked to do are pretty "gross", but that's half the fun! I've already told friends about it, and they're planning on buying it for their kids.
