I had already bought Concept, the main edition of this game, when I saw this on special and having had success with Catan Junior, thought I'd grab this for the family. The rules aren't something that we've stuck with, down to the letter, simply because my kids didn't find it as fun. The original rules have it that one person draws twelve cards and then, one at a time, gives clues, whilst all the kids make guesses and try to name the animal. We threw that rule out the window in favour of one that gave everyone a turn to give the clues and the first person getting five right being the winner.

The board is easy to follow, it's in sections that are easy to work out. The clue giver isn't meant to speak, simply place the orange squares over their clues in the various categories which cover size, home, physical characteristics, diet, colour, movement, strength, speed and most oddly, if it is a happy or angry creature... The cards are colour coded, so you have one set of easier animals and another set which provides more of a challenge, plus half a dozen or so mythical creatures. You do have to allow for some wriggle room and confusion. If you don't know the animals diet or where they typically live, you may not give/get the right clue.

This isn't a game that I grab down off the shelf to play with the kids, I don't find it clear enough for some of the images you can select and if someone doesn't know the animal it can get a bit irritating. Thankfully, the number of clues that can be given is finite and that's when the turn ends, onto the next animal. My 8 and 10 year olds both enjoy it but Miss10 is now looking forward to trying out the full version, which I must say, I'm very happy about that.

Product reviews for listing 9094: Twice as Clever
Developed by Stronghold Games

Product image for Twice as CleverTwice as clever follows the model of That's Pretty Clever. Each turn the active player rolls six dice, chooses one of them to mark off a space on their scoring grid, places any dice with lower numbers aside, then re-rolls any remaining dice.

The white die is a joker and can be used as any one of the other five colors. After the active player chooses at most three dice, then the other players each choose one of the set-aside dice ... more...
