I have been having so much fun playing this game. It reminds me of a magic kit my grandfather got me when I was little. We had so much fun playing with that kit, so this brought back a lot of good memories. I love playing single player games, when i'm stressed and want to get my mind off things. When I was playing this I could feel my family staring at me waiting for their turn to try it out. Everyone loved it and even though it's meant for one player, we enjoyed helping each other set Houdini free. You can play this alone or work on the harder challenges as a family. It is for ages 8 and up, but the little ones still like to help and have fun as well.
It is a single player game and has 40 challenges for beginner to expert. This game includes challenge cards, travel bag, Houdini body & legs,2 ropes, 1 lock, trap cage and 2 rings. The cards show you what pieces to use and how to tie up Houdini up. Then you must set him free without undoing the clasps. It sounds pretty easy, but I ensure you it is a very challenging game. Some are easy to figure out, and some take sometime and several mistakes before you are able to get it. It is a very fun, challenging game. I definitely recommend it. It is a great game for the whole family. You can purchase this and other amazing ThinkFun games HERE! I Received this product in exchange for an honest review.
