Spooky atmosphere might be too much for younger kids.

My seven year old son enjoyed playing it for awhile, but the spooky, sinister atmosphere it created resulted in a lot of anxiety at bedtime. He was very upset that it was rated "E for Everyone" and suggests that it is for older kids. Aside from the atmosphere, I thought it was fun, but definitely for older players because there are references to Hamlet and to objects that a younger person might not know. Definitely an intriguing game and one to play as a family.
