This game is basically a set of 54 Chinese character flashcards. There are 6 boards that each correspond to 9 characters each; on one side of the board are the characters; on the other side of the board are photographs representing the characters. The cards have the characters on one side and a pronunciation guide on the other. Using different combinations, players can come up with lots of basic educational games that will help players learn the characters.
I'm of very little use in "reviewing" this game as I'm fluent in Chinese -- to me, this game was about as interesting as matching a picture of a boat to the word "boat". It seems like it would be educational for anyone who wants to learn 54 Chinese vocabulary words, but that's probably mostly young children, as adults will also need to learn things like grammar.
