The suggested age on this game is 7 and older. I think it could be lower. My kids enjoy playing games of all kinds and they learned to play this game at a young age. My son was 5 and my daughter was 6. This is a great game for the whole family to enjoy.
We used to play as partners with out kids until they could get the hang of playing it by themselves. Now, they will play for hours. They love the fact that you are hiding your pieces from the other person. When we bought this game it came with handheld version which is just as fun when you can't find someone to play with you.
My kids are a little older now and they will play this game for hours. The pieces are so small that they can be easily lost but there are plenty of them in the game that you will still have enough to use even if you lose a few.
I would recommend this game to anyone. It can be a fun strategic game for you and your child!
