I live in a house of Lego obsessed boys. My 7 year old requested to buy this game with his own money. He really enjoyed setting the game up and plays it regularly. It's a fairly quick game and generally quick enough that it holds the attention of his younger brother.

A simple, very nice looking cat-and-mouse style game, with the helicopter and station twists to keep things interesting. It's nice that a brick separator is included, however to remove tiles I still prefer that little crowbar piece. The box says 6+, which is about right, because while some luck is involved (which tile you turn over, what you roll with the die), you also have to plan which microfig to move where. However, while the box says 2-4 players, it's essentially a two player game. The manual says you have to form two teams when playing with three or four players, which is a bit of a cop out, no pun intended.
