I read the rules for this game and it sounds like a lot of fun! I will be picking this up for my one of my nieces for Christmas. I have always encouraged them to be more into board games and board gaming that every year I look for games that they would like and would be something they and their Uncle Pittbull can play until they are older and can get in on some of the bigger games.

The love of my life is an elementary school teacher. We've been looking at this one as something she might introduce into the classroom on days when the wee ones have been especially well behaved (yes, I'm aware of the irony given the title).

Which is why it is in the Family/Kid Games section.

Personally, it isn't the kind of game that I would play.

This actually seems kinda fun. I may have to make a point to pick it up and try it at one of my game nights.

 Well this game is like playing cards. Same combos as playing cards, two of a kind, two pairs, full house, flush etc. You have cards and figures. The pens are filled with two figures, and then you try to make the best combo out of the two figures and the three cards that you will play on the pen. The person with the best "hand" gets the figures and on the bottom of the figure is a number. After all the figures have been collected, you add all the numbers together from the bottom of the figures and total them, Black Sheep gives a negative value. Then there are bonus's you can get like having all BLK Sheep means you win. Like shooting the moon in hearts.

It is a blast for kids, and i dont think that 8 is too young i thought my 3.5 yo son to play. I must admit i modified the rules a bit but he enjoys it and it still follows how you should play the game.

Not played yet (it´s on the way, though), but the game seems as a nice introduction to poker. And what´s more, with plastic animals :)

I know it's been a long time between replies, but another good family option is Micro Mutants. It's more of a dexterity game than anything else, but take a look at it. Yeah, I've been pondering this one, too. Sometimes I buy the more kid friendly stuff awaiting grandkids since my own are in their mid-teens.

Not at all.  My 8 and 10 year old nieces play it.

Probably 6-12, I would guess. I own it. We play it together as it's dubbed - a family game. It tended to be the top choice for game night for my daughter when she was 8-9. Now that she's 10, maybe we've played it out a bit.
