Summary: We got this for our 8 year old daughter. She was not into it at first, but my wife sure was! After seeing her play it, my daughter has given it another go, and she likes it too. I am not familiar with My Word Coach, but my wife says it's pretty much the same game, so if you had that I would not get this one.
Summary: I bought this for my 6 year old daughter. The words are very complex for her age even though she set up a profile specifying her age. To make it worse there seems to be only 2 games. Fill in the missing letters and match a word with meanings!! This is ridiculous!! Unless I am missing something here.
Summary: I bought this game for my son because it seemed like a game for kids. This is a game meant to challenge even adults, so I was bummed it wasn't more kid friendly. Also, the letters on the words are so light. It could have been bolder. It's a bit hard to read.
Summary: The game is fine, but it is the same game with a different name(I believe it is My Word Coach, but I am not sure. I enjoyed the original version, but would have liked to have known that it was the same game with a different name. I simply gave one to a friend when I discovered they were the same. I like word and strategic games and usually try most of them. Good product, just let folks know if it is the same game with a different title.
Summary: I bought this game because I thought it looked like a good way to recoop some of those lost brain cells. I was right! It looks like a child's game but it tests you on the definitions of words. Some I knew and some I had never heard of. Will definitely help expand your vocabulary no matter what your age!!
Summary: The Word Fish game is the absolute best. My 9 year old daughter and I are in fierce competition to get to 100% word power and I cannot believe how much fun it is. She has ignored her other games just to battle me for the top spot and its exciting to see that its fun while both of us are learning. She is actually beating me on some games and I'm no dummy. This game makes it fun while getting a vocabulary boost.
Summary: My word coach part 2, basically. Even the jazzy background music is the same. The same candy-bar graph that measures how much you've accomplished for the day's lesson is still used. It's one of the big turn offs I had about My Word Coach. To complete the daily requirement, you need to schedule a good 45 min. I like the quick Brain Age type games better. If you like My Word Coach, then consider getting this one.
