I bought this game and I think it's a decent game, and is very easy to play. I haven't played it with other people, but I think it'll probably be more fun playing with others. Still, it's a good game and is easy enough for kids 8+. Violence: Some games include shooting at targets, but nothing graphic is shown and you never shoot at living things. Consumerism: Based off the video game "Carnival Games" so kids might want to play that game after playing this one.
