This was a fun game to play, and my subjects enjoyed it. What I like is the random victory -- no one knows who will win until there's a winner -- much like bingo.
What makes this version different are the pictures -- and after a while my subjects were getting creative: Dinosaur became "Triceratops" and Monkey became "Chimpanzee". Hmm... creativity!
The only challenge I faced as moderator was the directions. It was difficult to paraphrase to the crowd, and it wasn't until we started playing that I realized the moral of the story: sometimes adults make kids' stuff more confusing for kids. Having said that, once I butt my nose out of the scenario, the kids were just fine. And they understood the game quite well.
This is a great game to keep around for random "I'm bored" moments. It requires almost no setup, and hardly any adult supervision.
