This game is fast and fun. It is quick to pick up and lively at the table. The dice are easy to read but sometimes when going super quick the boots and gloves look very similar. The pieces of the gingerbread cookies are very well designed. Following the button color to match the dice was kind of odd at the beginning. It would be nice if the buttons were easier identified. But this issue is minor.
The game is simple enough for my 9 year old to pick up the basics. It took him us a bit to get used to returning the candy cane to the middle of the table. Oftentimes it was “Stop… oh give me that!”
3 rounds seems to be a good metric to go on. If you have games that go on longer it can be easier for someone to run away with the score. The Sweet Treats provide a good balance to the game. Triggering those after you take them from an opponent can be quite fun.
The game comes with candy cane daggers and little speech bubbles. They don’t mean anything but they make for an interesting bit about the table as you play. Along with the fun visuals each gingerbread cookie has an arm with a weapon.
This game is really fun and quick for a wide range of ages.
