Rife With Factual Errors - Makes a Very Fun Game Essentially Unplayable
December 15, 2017
My daughter is really into animals so we got her this game. She was very excited and the questions were not either too hard or too easy for her or for the rest of the family.
The major problem with the game is that it is rife with factual errors. We played one game and found that about half of the questions in which you were asked to rank animals in some order (fastest to slowest, longest tongue, farthest annual migration, etc) were incorrect. For example, you were supposed to rank the polar, brown, and black bears from largest to smallest. The card's answer was Brown/Polar/Black. My daughter pointed out that "everyone knows" that the polar bear is larger than even the largest brown bear (the Kodiak Bear) and sure enough, every source I looked up had the polar bear being the largest. It got to the point that every time we had one of these questions, we checked the answers online because we got to the point that we felt we couldn't trust the card.
So basically the only thing a trivia game needs to make sure is that their answers are correct. It's not like "Apples to Apples" where there are 1000 cards - fact checking should have been quick and easy. So either Mindware has no quality control or no fact checker or the program manager for the game completely failed his job. Its too bad because without the question errors, we really enjoyed the game...
