This game can be played with four players, but it's not as much fun that way. The more players the better, making this the perfect party game -- ideal for upcoming holiday get-togethers. It helps if your family and friends don't mind being a bit silly and having fun with it. A good sense of humor is a big plus. The game requires pretty much no set-up, and the rules are simple, so you can have it out of the box and be playing in a matter of minutes. The biggest problem is that you won't want to STOP playing! My daughter is 11 and she can play this, no problem. It really is geared more towards teens and adults though, so I wouldn't recommend this for anyone younger than 11.
