A brilliant pattern recognition game by Haba. The game has players taking turns playing the role of thief, while the other players then try to determine which objects were taken by assessing whatever portions of the remaining objects' silhouettes are visible. Primarily targeted toward a younger play audience, the game actually scales extremely well to age and skill, because the more objects included in the game play the greater the difficulty. As a result, really young kids (four or five) can play the game with just four or five objects, while older kids and adults are challenged by 9+ objects (to a maximum of thirteen).

The physical design also deserves praise, because the game box actually is the suitcase from which objects are stolen, complete with a secret drawer compartment and a magnet lid lock. My kids love playing with it, even when they're not actually playing the game.

Haba does it again! What a delightful recognition/real-time game. I think that this is a perfect title for both children and adults, and can be quite challenging if enough objects are used. Don't hesitate to play two rounds instead of three, especially with 4 players.

One of my boys favorite games. I have posted a review on this. Plays well with different age groups and challenges children to think. Did I say fun?

Very nice components, but the game comes down to how well a player can spread the pieces apart when shaking the closed suitcase. The game did not capture the interest of my 6 and 7 year old boys, but I think it might be fun when they get a little older.

I rate children's game according to how excited I am to play the game with the appropriately aged child.

The idea is great and rates a 6 with me.

However the construction of my game has problems which make it so difficult to play, I have reduced its rating to a 4. The secret drawer is so tight, children do not have the strength to pull it out, and when I do it for them, I have to be very careful not to rip the drawer apart, it is so tight. Then the player is supposed to shake the suitcase up to distribute the items in the secret drawer. The transparent bottom of the suitcase came partially collapsed in mine, and no mixing or repositioning at all occurs.

Due to the problems of my game's very poor box construction, the game is not worth the money. This could be a honey of a game.

What a wonderful game for kids and adults! It's so simple to play. Place the silhouette items in the box, open the lid and let your opponents guess what's inside. The only problem is the items could be clumped together and it can be tricky to identify all the shapes! I can't really explain why I enjoy discovering what's inside the box...it's just fun!

Kids game where someone takes out 2 shadows and puts the rest back in the box. You look at the shadows and decided which 2 are missing before the sand timer runs out.

Clever game, unique, but I'm not sure if we'll get it.
