Good idea 4 kids-too repetitive for older players!

The general idea of the game is good... it would probably be good for young elementary age kids (1-3rd grade) - above that, it's too repetitive & a bit frustrating. As a teacher, I like the educational aspect of it. But, without instructions, some parts of it can be a little frustrating. For example, I didn't realize that the "Disorder" at the top when I I touching and rubbing items on the book was something I needed to click on - I first thought it meant that I touched the items out of order (since I lost a ribbon). It was only when I touched it out of frustration that I realized I was supposed to identify a disruptive student. However, the calibration can be off slightly and it will register the wrong choice (even when you made a right one). This is also frustrating! But, the overall premise of the game is good...so, if it's somehing you are interested in, it might be worth a rental to see for yourself. But, I wouldn't rush out and purchase it! :)

Seriously - this game is not worth renting. The idea is great, but the execution is horrible. There needs to be skill levels for all ages. Instead, it's the same thing over and over. It's boring. My kids packed it up to return the same day we received it.
