Highly recommend this game for all ages. Easy game for children to learn and play, my grandchildren play it every time they visit (ages 6 through to 16) either with each other or with me (I love it too). It is a game that actually makes them think as not only do they have to protect their pieces from being taken they have to to take the oppositions pieces. They develop thought and planning strategies to help them win. Played it a child and still love playing it as a 64 year old. Never too young, never too old.
