Rates a 9 for kids. My 6 and 10 yo love to play this memory game and it can wreak havoc on adult grey matter as well. I prefer this game over ANY other memory game for kids. Sherlock version.

Update: Still a great game to play with young children, but Dawn Under has this one beat for older kids and adults.

Fun memory game that's not just for kids, folks. This is Memory on steroids. It's about as much fun watching others agonize over what a certain card is as it is taking your own turn. Maybe that's what puts this one over the top for me. In any event, I'm looking forward to more plays of this.

A pretty simple memory game. I like it and I'd expect a lot of kids to do, too.

I have the Sherlock, Playroom Entertainment edition. Kids adore this game, and it's one memory game that I think adults can actually hold their own against kids while playing (a rarity, as kids usually stomp all over adults in memory games).

I can't wait to play it against adults! But I will say this... despite the claim on the box cover, there isn't any deduction involved in this game, it's pure memory.

Portable, poor man's Chicken Cha Cha in feel without the chasing element, hence Sherlock will never be as exciting as that game. Still Sherlock is fun when the player to the right intentionally picks a card that is difficult to recall, or the increasing pressure as you are forced to move and recall yet another card before you can move to a face up one and claim. One strong tactic (applying a number association system) can be a game breaker, unless you forget that the card has already been taken. So really a good example of how applying such a tactic improves a person's ability.

Decent memory game for kids. Started out playing with 6 cards instead of 8 but the kids are catching on quickly. One problem we've run into is that the same group of 6-7 cards can remain on the table for quite awhile while the replacement card ends up as the end point for quite a few rounds. A detraction from an otherwise decent game. Could increase to 10 - 12 cards to ramp up the difficulty.

My 3 1/2 year old daughter will requests this game of about 30% of the frequency that she requests Hiss, but never finishes the game. She doesn't really understand the purpose of the game and what an entire turn consists of. She justs likes guessing what is under each card. Maybe in a couple years she'll really get it and enjoy the real game.

Those with good memories might find that it's too easy to play the game perfectly - defeating the purpose of a memory game. I suppose going up to 10 or 12 cards could solve the problem. Also, the game can lock into an uninteresting pattern where the same seven cards will stay on the board, with the eighth position changing every turn. I'm amazed to see no other ratings below six for this junky game. The whimsical idea of "the fat sack going 'round" is the only thing saving this from a 2 rating.
