This game is fun, challenging, and group-friendly, but the ads can be distracting. eTABU can help kids practice team-building, making educated guesses, and thinking under time pressure. This app may also be a fun way to build vocabulary in a second language, as the words included come in 10 languages. It doesn't take many rounds before the free keywords are used, especially if you're only using one language, so if you love this game, you'll eventually need to buy the premium package of thousands more keywords. Players can also get new keywords by watching optional video ads. Because the ads ultimately will be frustrating, it'll likely be worth paying to opt out if you plan to use the app regularly. Also, it would be great to have targeted card packs so there are options for younger kids to get involved.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
