KIDS:

I liked learning about all of the different coins and making change for different amounts. Mia (F7)

PARENTS:

A great game for the whole family to play. Our 7 year old who didn't know a lot about coins and making change when we got the game two days ago is now an expert! She still identifies the coins by the pictures on them rather than their actual name for example, "boat" instead of "dime" but she has caught onto how to add and subtract the money very quickly. The rules are easy to follow and it only takes about 15 minutes to play one game, perfect for shorter attention spans. It's too bad Canada no longer has a penny though, which makes this part of the game a bit less relevant now. Also we were unsure why the paper bills were included, after playing 7 or 8 times we have never accumulated enough change by the end of the game to total more than a few dollars, nobody has had any need for the $5.00 bill let alone the $100 bill!
