I first received this game as a present almost twenty years ago when I was a little girl, and I have to say that it was the most memorable game of my childhood. The board and pieces were sturdy and beautifully crafted, and remained in my memory for all these years! I fell in love with the simplicity of the game and the mystery of what lay under the next tree. This game challenged my memory skills and was fun for everyone with whom I played. I'm sure the game is a bit less challenging for an adult, but makes an enjoyable game for the whole family. It's the most beautifully constructed game I've seen!
This was the first game I taught my four year old (though we simplified the rules) when it was known as Enchanted Forest. It has remained a perennial favorite with her and her friends. A nice simple memory game with enough fun elements to keep adults from getting bored. Usual good Ravenburger quality. Recommended.
This is one game that my daughter enjoys as much as I do. The game combines a little bit of skill (memory) with a lot of fun. Especially when we try to distract each other by calling out nonsense items in an attempt to confuse each other when a player is looking under a tree. ('White elephant' is the current favorite to call out - 'What's under that tree? White elephant!!')
The game does depend a bit on luck (good die rolls) and adults with good memories may wish for more challenging fair, but it is a game that can be enjoyed by younger children while presenting some challenge to adults. I like this game as a nice family game.
Some folks consider this game to be a delightful parcheesi variant with a memory twist.
I consider it to be a 5-minute memory game stretched out to an agonizing 30+ minutes by lots of dull dice-rolling and moving around.
To each his own.
