It’s the first game my son can play by himself that doesn’t annoy me (AKA it’s not Candyland)! He is 4 years old and is always sad when his parents are playing games without him. Even if he can play, we have to help to the point of it getting annoying to him. He just gives up most of the time, and I don’t blame him.

When I unboxed ‘Gigamons’, I was concerned that it might be too advanced for him. It does have a few advanced aspects to it. As an example, it does have ‘random’ tiles and most tile matches have special powers. One of the powers is throwing out another person tile and I thought that might be tough for a 4-year-old to follow. I explained the rules and told him I would help if he needed it, assuming that it would take a few plays for him to grasp the concept. By the end of the first game, my son had mastered it and beat me! I have never seen him so excited over winning a game. The rules are insanely simple to understand for me, but that doesn’t mean it’ll be so simple for a preschooler; I am overjoyed he got it so fast. We’ve had it a few weeks and we are still playing it every night before bed. It only takes 15ish minutes so it was no hassle to add to our routine. I love that we can play as a family without anyone feeling left out or annoyed because they don’t understand.

I would also like to add that I was very impressed with the quality of the game. It is made notably sturdy and shows no signs of wear even after a good 40 playthroughs. From playability to quality, I am extremely happy with this game. I’ll look to Blue Orange Games when I’m searching for family games in the future.
