Pix Mix is a fun game that will stimulate detailed visual observation skills. The object of the game is to recognize and name the shapes of thin-line drawn objects that are printed on clear cards and stacked on top of each other. The player that recognizes and correctly names the most objects in each pile wins the game. It's a really unique idea for a game, and the interest level remained high for quite a while when children and parents played. Our 12 year-old tester felt very challenged and enjoyed herself immensely. Younger children, including a 6 year-old, had a great time playing with some adult assistance. The packaging is cool and fun with bright colors, and it's moderate size make it easily stored. The packaging also successfully conveys the idea of the game on the box. The only setup that took us any time was peeling the protective layer of clear coat off the cards before playing. This is a fun game worth sharing with friends.
