This a game I remember playing fondly as a child, unlike other board games it seemed generally just a lot simpler with no little parts to go missing etc! You can also get the adults version of this which is also very popular and is an iconic board game.
The game comes in a small ish box for most board games with the name and a picture of the game being played across it. The box suggests that it needs 2-6 players, you could play with more I suppose if you wanted but this would have to be in teams since there are only 6 head bands. It also suggests 6+ which is fair enough since you will need to be able to concentrate on it for a while and remember the answers to the questions. However, I don't see an age limit on it!
The box contains a set of counters, a pack of cards, some cards with hints on them, 6 head bands, instructions and an egg timer. This means that is a lot more simple than other board games without the risk of losing many little pieces, but also there is one thing missing that board games usually have - a board! The aim of the game is to guess what is on your head band, you have to put a card with a picture into your headband without looking and then place it on your head. Then you go around the other players, asking them questions in order to try and guess what you are wearing! If you get a correct answer before the egg timer runs out then you can put one of your counters into the middle; the winner is the one to get rid of all of their counters.
This is a very good game, as is its counterpart for adults but to be honest both could really be played by any age- the only difference is that the cards that you are guessing what you are have slightly simpler concepts on the childrens game since they may not have heard of all the cards from the adults section but this could probably be easily overcome. Its also a good game for kids with promoting social interaction and the rules of conversation.
Summary: Great game
