Got this for my son's 10th birthday. He was super excited, had seen the commercial for it, wanted it SO bad. By the end of the day, he said the game was "garbage" and wanted to know when we could get him a present that worked. You spend time getting the gameboard just right. Then are expected to sit PERFECTLY STILL( have you met children?) while the tablet "captures" your design. Just to finally have it load and looks nothing like your design gameboard. Kids and adults both tried to get this to work. May have gotten one board, but no heroes, after hours of trying. What I thought was going to be screams of joy, instead tears of disappointment. Not the experience I wanted for a special birthday. Total waste of money and lots of time.

        My 6 year old loves video games. I love the idea of him building the game, then being able to play it. It seems pretty cool.
