Great game for kids 4 to 9. I played with all age range, they all liked it. Playing 3 to 4 rounds is sufficent each time, but they all are asking the game again and again on our next meetings. One problem is when playing the game with 5 to 6 children they are all trying to pick the card from the same pile at the same time and this causes frustation. I decided to make many piles(4 to 5)on the table and gave them the option of getting a card from different piles. That worked really well.
Another problem I encounter many times that the game ends with a tie, when its over every player is ending up holding the same character in thier hand. On the game instruction page it was mentioned that this occurs in rare cases but in my case it has been occuring almost once every 3 games.

What can I say, the family and I love these fast noisy gamewright games. They are perfect for quick before bed treats for the kids. We have a stack of them in the closet right at their height and they love to take turns picking from them. Best of all walmart carries them, so easy access and cheap! We have made a slight variation of this so the 6yo can play along. we take turns instead of sametime play.

Rated 7 as a children's game: Fun game to play with the family. Get rid of your cards the fastest, sort of a speed matching game.

I think this one deserves a higher rating than it's got - especially when played with children (both young and old). It's certainly a very quick game, which can be handy, and copes OK with different numbers of players. Fast fun!

Simple real-time "speed game". My 6 year old daughter really likes it and I'm rating it as a children's game. For pre-teens or older, it wouldn't hold up.

İt's a fun game to play with my 5 to 7 years old students. They always want to play more than one round since the game ends very quickly. I also use the game to teach them different hairstyles. They like matching the names with the mentioned hairstyles. While playing I repeatedly reminding them picking a card without waiting. The downside of the game is some of my students hands are to small to hold all the cards at once.

This game is growing on me. It is an energy game that is better playing when the kid is antsy and wants to play a game than most typical board games. Mechanic is not great, but it is fun.

Rating based on playing with children. Fun art and quick gameplay, but there isn't that much to it. It's important for everyone to be at somewhat the same skill, since each round could be over in a matter of seconds.

This was a hit for a while in my house. The art is fun, and it's fast and furious. My four year old could play decently well, and older kids liked it too. We seemed to tire of it after a while, and it's been over a year since we played.

UPDATE: In the past few weeks, the kids have unearthed this and played it some more, completely on their own. They have gotten it out recently when friends of theirs come over for a play date. I still only want to rate it six, but it is mighty nice that young kids (5 and up) can play this completely on their own without adult supervision.

A great family game to fill a few minutes. It is possible to break the game (holding onto pairs in your hands) but why would you want to when you can see the delight in a 6 year old's eye when they slam down their last card to beat you.

A silly, mindless fun game with low replayability. I played with kids and made it more fun by claiming that it's a deck of fortune telling cards. So we say, choose your spouse in 10 years' time ... and we all have a good laugh.

Children's Rating: 7.5

Wig Out is a speed-type game where you are trying to reduce your hand to zero by playing down cards which match piles on the table. Piles are initiated by playing down pairs and, at the beginning of a round, by flipping over two cards. The first player to have an empty hand shouts "Wig Out", and everyone collects one point per card remaining in their hand. Five rounds are played. Low score wins. Kids love it. I don't mind playing it with them.

I would group this with "Hats Off" as two of a very small set of Gamewright games I would not recommend. There's not much game here, and it rewards people who just sit and wait for everyone else to do most of the work of drawing more cards.
