I’d say age 5 is a good age to start playing this — my 5, 7 and 11 year old all love this game. It’s visual and colorful but also helps kids with spacial recognition. My 5 year old needed a practice round to get the hang of it, then we were off to the races. We keep it out in the family room because we play it all the time. Our 5th grader loves it too, because you can get more strategic with it as you get older. My take: This is great for ages 5-11.
