This review was written by my 9 year old daughter TSO:
I think it’s really cool because of the Hello Kitty characters. I think it’s really fun.
Rules & Setup:
Have everyone pick a players mat. Someone needs to be the caller. The caller then calls out characters that appear on cards that he picks that are randomly spread out on the table face down. If you have the character that the caller calls based on the card he turns over, you place a token on top of it. In order to win someone has to get 4 in a row either across, vertical or diagonal. Once this is completed in order to win the person who just got 4 in as row needs to call out “Super Cute”.
Theme and Mechanics:
The theme is Hello Kitty. They did good on this. It uses the same mechanics as the game Bingo.
It was really fun!
Artwork and Components:
These were really good. My favorites were: Tuxedo Sam, caripo and Twin Stars.
The Hello Kitty Characters and art are a really cool art style. The Gameplay was really fun to me, but it might not be for everyone.
One of the only downsides I can think of is it’s kind of confusing to have to say “Super Cute” at the end of winning instead of Bingo.
I think it’s really fun but not for everyone.
Players Who Like: Hello Kitty Fans and People who like cutsie stuff and people who like Bingo.
