When I was a kid, I played Candyland every night (or at least tried to get my parents to). I don't know how I feel about what appears to be a ... mutation ... of my beloved game. When I have kids of my own, they most certainly will not play anything but the original board game.
Me? I'm half man, half owl, and half moose. I am ManOwlMoose. Don't tell Al Gore about me.

Got two of these last time they were on Woot and gave one as a birthday present.
Our family doesn't play the standard way - instead we load all of the pieces in the little chimney thing (yes, you have to make sure they lay flat) and then repeatedly pull the Candy Cane lever as fast as we can to watch them all go shooting out. This inspires many giggles in the process. To throw in some learning, we will sometimes count as the pieces come flying out.
My two year old is good with the shape sorting so we just use it for some family bonding time in different ways where my kids (2 and 9) and I just sit around and laugh.
If you aren't a rule follower, it doesn't matter how old you are, you can have tons of fun with this game!
Gee, my avatar looks just like me!
