Description

From the Publisher:

The hit family game Stare! is now for kids! Children will not only have great fun playing STARE! Junior Edition, but the game is educational too! Players take turns staring at visually-stimulating images on game cards: comics, funny photos, works of art, and much more. When the 30 second timer runs out, they are asked a number of questions about the images - What color is the girl's hat?, What is Superman holding in his left hand?, Which teddy bear is the tallest?, etc. The object is to see how much they can recall. Kids will have a great time playing, while at the same time developing vital learning skills (ie. memory skills, concentration and imagination). They can play individually or in teams, and there is even a version for parents to join in too!

OK memory/observation game that the kids enjoy. The alternate "fast play" rules that eliminate the dice make the game more tolerable for adults, and the game can be handicapped a bit for younger kids by giving them more time to look at the card or hand-selecting easier cards for them to choose from. My son has some trouble focusing at times and I like the fact that this game forces him to focus for a period of time knowing that if he doesn't, his sister will thump him in the game. If that isn't motivation, I don't know what is. :)

This game can be hard, don't let the junior in the name fool you. Often the kids do better than we do. We have a friend with a photographic memory, we don't like playing with him! Found at a thrift store for under $5. Well worth it. At $25 not so sure.

To reduce randomness, can play without dice. Run through each question in order (from 1 to 6) with one point awarded for each correct answer, and any wrong answer ending the turn.

This feels more like an exercise in observation than a game. That being said, there are worse ways to work on observation skills, and the game does include some interesting pictures and non-obvious questions. I don't object to playing it with my kids, and I feel like it's good for them, although I don't generally suggest playing it.

I bought this for my classroom. Good game for the kids.

Fun and fast. The replay-ability would be a problem after going through all of the cards--and there don't seem to be a lot of them. I really think this would work better as an app, and be much more portable that way.

This always scares off players when they find out that it can be accurately described as a photographic memory game. That's not a skill most adults care to test out. I guess it's too much work. The nice thing is that kids like that sort of thing, and they're good at it.

This is a game I bought for my daughter a couple of years back. She has Down Syndrome. It's the one game we play where she competes on an even basis with us. She has excellent observation skills. All things being equal, I wouldn't play it that often. Because she enjoys it, we bring it out periodically. I've never played the regular version of Stare.
