Is It Any Good?

MATCH BLITZ is a simple concept that is challenging enough to be really fun. It brings the fun and bonding of a board game to the iPad (so there's nothing to set up or pick up), and the challenge adjusts automatically to keep it fun. Setup is as simple as tapping the number of players, so kids won't get impatient waiting for everything to be entered. The games are short, which is just right for short attention spans. Adults will find the advanced levels -- with chalk drawings and monochromatic objects -- challenging enough to keep the game competitive. There's no tracking of how many wins each player gets -- which may be disappointing to more competitive players -- but is nice for kids because they get a fresh start with every game.

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.
