Customer Reviews

Worse is that the board does not lie flat and ...This is the game you would get if Memory and Clue had a baby. It certainly makes Memory more interesting but I regret this purchase because the quality of the materials so low. Before you even open it, the game looks cheap. My kids (5 and 8) helped to pull apart the mini cards and in doing so tore the paper a bit. It's only a matter of time before they learn that 3 of the clocks they want to avoid have tears on them. Worse is that the board does not lie flat and so the little cards you place all over it go sliding around even before the player start turning cards. Are all Family Pastimes games so poorly constructed? I'm tempted to make this the last purchase from them. The two Peaceable Kingdom games I own have much better construction which goes a long way when trying to play a game with little kids who get frustrated easily. I'm so sorry I bought this game. If you are considering it, don't bother. 2Greatest Team-Building Game for School Counselors!I have purchased this one-of-a-kind game more times than I can count over my 20+ years as a school counselor. My students of all ages from Kindergarten through middle school love to play it. It is a great team-builder and unifier. I give away the game to one student at the end of the year--because of its consistently reasonable price it doesn't kill my wallet. I've often purchased it directly from the family members who run the business in Canada--very nice people! 5Kids really like it.We own Ogres and Elves by Family Pastimes, and I love love love it. We like the complexity of it. Secret Door is good. Like other reviewers have said, it s similar to a memory match game. There is added pressure of the clock, so that adds excitement. Figuring out what is hidden behind the door at the end is a good practice in logic. And I love that it s cooperative. My boy (8) enjoys it, and his friends (8 and 9) always want to play it, too. I m bored with it, but I am 45... I guess I didn t really buy it for myself... 5Fun cooperative game for all agesSecret Door is a fun cooperative game so parents will love the "no fighting" aspect. I recently purchased this game from Amazon to replace the one that had been lost to neighborhood play, so our family has been playing it for at least six years. It is great for all ages as gameplay does not require reading, this is especially helpful if you have kiddos with reading challenges. As a team the players work to solve the mystery of which three objects are hidden before time runs out. There is nothing childish about it and it is fun for teens and adults as well. Every game is different. The rules are easy to understand and follow but that does not mean you will always beat the clock. The game is also well themed-the board represents rooms in an old house and the small playing cards represent the hidden objects. The one negative is that the card stock for the hidden objects are thin, however because the game has delivered so much family fun I did not deduct a star although I wish the company would use a thicker card stock for the hidden objects. 5Fun for young kids but very poor quality constructionAs many other reviewers have mentioned, the quality of manufacture for this game is really poor. The pieces are made of very thin cardboard with no coating over the image side for added strength/durability, unlike most cardboard game pieces.When you initially receive the game the pieces are all stuck together as part of a thin cardboard page and you have to pop the pieces out. Unfortunately, when popping them out they very, very easily rip and many of ours now have rips on the back. It would be easy for someone playing the game a lot to realize which cards have what ripped backs, therefore taking away some of the excitement of the game (you're not supposed to know what each card is until you turn it over).The game is pretty inexpensive (we paid $12ish for it), but we've bought other games for comparable prices that were far superior in construction (not falling apart day one)Our daughter is 7 1/2 an she likes this game. She'll play it alone or with others. I don't know how long it will last due to the poor quality of manufacture, but for the time being she's happy.SUMMARY: Young kids like it, but it's very poorly made. 3A keeperYou wouldn't think this simple, kinda chintzy, game would be a family favorite but it's actually quite fun! The graphics are laughable and the cards are dreadfully thin and flimsy which makes me wonder how durable they will be, but the concept is actually a really smart one. The players work together (which is a refreshing change to the competition aspect of other games) and the idea of having to beat the clock is what makes this so fun. It's essentially a memory game but again, it's the idea of having to find matches before midnight that kinda makes it intense. We play many rounds of this during our family game night. And the secret door is really whimsical. Our daughters like to open it with a resounding "creeeeeeek!" So cute! 5We LOVE this game!!My son, age 8, has autism and really struggles to play games where he loses. He's quite bright, and enjoys playing Forbidden Island, Forbidden Desert, Catan, etc. Thing is, these games are so involved that when anything goes wrong he is sucked in and has an emotional response. The Family Pastimes games are turning out to be GREAT for us. There's enough strategy to be intriguing to an 8 yo and enjoyable to an adult, but the game goes quickly enough that we can play round after round. This way, if we don't do well in one round, we can play again and do better the next time! So we're getting practice over and over in losing, accepting losing. The other brilliant thing is their use of partial losing. So in The Secret Door, you might figure out two of the three items behind the door. You still had a way to win, even as you had to accept some imperfection and that you didn't REALLY win and beat it. For a child with autism, this is great practice! LOVE this game. I'm definitely buying more Family Pastimes games, and we're looking forward to taking them to therapy sessions for his speech therapist to use as well.Now for a little tip. I suppose others have done this too, but we used little velcro dots to keep the door in place. This size is perfect. https://www.amazon.com/VELCRO-Brand-Fasteners-Premated-56-Count/dp/B006MIV2S8/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1500434997&sr=8-2&keywords=clear+velcro+dots Also, I laminated all the pieces. The board was a little stiff and curved at first, but as we've played it has begun to lie flat better. Once the pieces are laminated, they have a really nice feel, and with the velcro for the door we have no issues with malfunctions. With autism, you don't want ANYTHING making the game go wrong or slide apart, mercy! So with that little tweak, boom, it's about perfect. Sure it would be nice if the board were a little bit swankier, but it's fine. For the low price of the game, it's really brilliant. Great replayability. We bought this and Round-Up, and we'll definitely be buying more. 5the kids all love this game and I am surprised by how many ...I use this as a family based therapist with my clients, the kids all love this game and I am surprised by how many of them ask to play it again and again. It's also nice because it is a fast game and with so many of my clients having limited attention spans it is a game they can feel successful at. I also love playing it with siblings as it encourages cooperation with each other rather than competition. The only down side is the board is small and the pieces are a little flimsy, I will be laminating them at work to increase the life span of the game. 5Family board game with a non-spooky mystery flairMy children are interested in secret passageways, and we don't do ghosts or things like that, so I was excited to find this and purchased it for a family Christmas present. We like the game but the board is curved upwards on either end (due to age or moisture or ...?) so it makes it tricky to use. We enjoy playing the game however, and appreciate the smallness and mission of the company. 3great game!great game! this is the second "cooperative" game we've gotten and we are really liking them. this one is a matching game, with the pieces being different valuable items, jewelry, golden goblet, painting, etc. you blindly pick out 3 pieces and slide them behind the secret door. then you take turns flipping pieces over to try finding matches. when you flip a piece over, its either a valuable item or a clock. if its an item, you flip another piece over to try to find its match. if its a clock, it goes up along the top of the board - once you get a certain amount of clocks, 12 I think, you lose the game, time has run out. the point of the game is to figure out which 3 valuable items have been hidden behind the secret door, by flipping pieces over and figuring out which ones you don't have a match for. we've played the game probably 6 times and have only won it - figuring out what the 3 pieces are before we flipped over all the clocks - once. its fun though. and its cooperative, so you can help each other remember what item is where. my 7yr old son and I love playing it. 5
