Summary: Kind of silly, really. Instructions for each skill try to be clear but are often confusing.

Summary: I purchased this game based on the reviews and the videos. It appeared to be fun. I found this game to be very boring and difficult to use, especially with a child that has Cerebral Palsy and limited movement in one arm and hand.
You might enjoy it the first time you play, but I doubt you'll be on it long
