auch der 7-jährige hatte riesen spaß. die märchen waren echt super. für den preis war das spiel sehr umfangreich. wir haben uns die meisten märchen erst am abend gemeinsam im hotel angehört, was auch sehr schön war.

wir waren um die 2,5 stunden unterwegs und es wurde nicht langweilig. am ende haben wir (naja, meine frau und unser teenager ) den fall erfolgreich gelöst.
