Summary: Are you smarter than a 3rd grader?
Comment: There are a few puzzles in this game that don't provide enough information to solve. Other puzzles are way too difficult even for my very advanced 9-year-old - they were challenging even for me. I recommend looking elsewhere.

Summary: Don't believe advertised compatibility
Comment: It's advertised as running on "Windows NT / 98 / 2000 / Me / 95, Macintosh, Linux, Unix." In fact it comes with no Linux version, nor any means to download it, and the publisher's web site indicates that no Linux version exists. The support web site listed on the jewel case indicates it doesn't run on any OS made in the last 10 years, only MacOS 7.1 (PowerPC), Windows 95, and Windows 98:
[...]

However The Learning Company (Broderbund) web site gives general advice for running old softare on Windows Vista: [...]

I followed their instructions to set the program to run in administrator mode. I removed the start menu shortcut made by the installer, which pointed back to the installation program on CD. Instead I navigated to the actual executable program under "Program Files" and made a desktop shortcut to that. With that, it runs fine under Vista and so far seems to be a very good game. My son has one complaint about the game, that if you make a mistake you have to start all over again, instead of keeping the clues you already found by solving earlier puzzles.

My overall rating is 4 stars for the game itself, 1 star for compatibility, and 0 stars for false advertising.

Summary: Good game for kids
Comment: This is a great teaching game for kids. The math skills can be adjusted for all levels of early math. The game content is fun and entertaining. Now my girls want the reading program in this series.

Summary: Awesome way to get the kids into math
Comment: Cluefinders Math Adventures Ages 9-12 w/ ADAPT I wasn't sure about buying Cluefinders as I didn't know anyone who had used it. I bought it and am I glad I did! It is helping my kids, ages 11 and 12 1/2, really stay fresh on their math skills over the summer. It is challenging because as they complete one level/round, the math gets harder. They also have to carefully read and follow clues and have to think. No monkey see, monkey do, but really think. Absolutely recommend this to anyone whose kid needs fun with math to get them interested in math, keep skills fresh, or to stretch their thinking and knowledge. Best of all, my kids love playing it and will play this game above others.
