I broke open the box of our new family time game to play with my granddaughter McKinna, she is 5, and this is what we found.

The box that the game comes in looks like fun and my granddaughter McKinna was intrigued by the box and art. The size of the game makes it easy to take almost anywhere, making it a perfect game to bring to friends’ houses or have on hand for family gatherings. With great anticipation we began to set up the card game, quickly went through the easy-to-follow rules, and began to play.

This was a fun and fast paced game that can quickly turn a corner to find that you are not in the lead. Collecting your cards for your bee hives happens quickly if you pay attention to your hives and play your queen in just the right spot to win.

The first two games were fun but we quickly lost a little interest after the second game. McKinna won both games. This game helps younger kids to learn their numbers and the placement of where they should go.

A real pleasure to play. On a scale of 1-10 I give this a 6.
