  1. Elaine B

    I was very impressed with this game when I first saw it. The packaging was very good and the game concept was very easy to understand and follow. This game kept us all going for a long time. It helps with needing to pay attention to what is said to remember for the next time the card comes out again! It is simple and easy to play without them losing interest. I think it is great and kept the kids amused for a long time. I really did like this game – it was something different for us all to enjoy; it was a good laugh.

    The packaging was attractive, excellent quality. . The game is easy to understand, although I think you would need a child who is already interested in the subjects in order to engage their interest in the game. My child was fully engaged. He was happy playing it many times and asked to take it on holiday for the car journey. This game works alongside the key stage two curriculum. My son was familiar with some of the characters from his school work and he enjoyed discovering some new characters from history. This game is engaging, fun; a brain stimulating game.

    I had to write a second review for the Explorers because I think this card game is outstanding. Having a great interest in this subject I found the cards incredibly informative. I have given the Explorer game as a present but I have kept my original pack by my desk so I can look up all kinds of facts. A truly great gift that does not date. Well done History Heroes!
