A Series of Unfortunate Events
My Favorite Game Ever!
Of all the Big Fish games I own, this one is an everyday game for me. I LOVE THIS GAME. Once I have gone through all 6 game levels, I change my name on the game board and repeat all 6 levels with another name. I'm only competing against myself, and trying to beat my previous time. This is a typical Einstein game. If you are not familiar with an Einstein game, then you will soon find this game truly addictive. I only wish I had ten more just like it!
Con: The only down side to this game is the music. It tends to be rather repetitive. I play with the sound off.
I highly recommend this game (and others like it), for any age group.

Fun Puzzle Game
This is a really fun game if you like logic puzzles. My only complaint is that it's almost not challenging enough, but it's still fun and worth the money.

Great fun if you can squint
This game is great for anyone preparing for the games portion of the LSAT or GRE.
I find it challenging and fun at the same time.
Only drawback is that some of the smaller graphics are hard to distinguish and I end up doing a lot of squinting to see on the harder levels. But if you have good eyesight, go for it, you will not be disappointed.

Great fun and different!
This game is totally different from what I've seen on BFG. I enjoy games requiring logic and strategy and this one fits the bill. It's challenging but not frustratingly difficult. A super difficult level would be a nice addition. It's great fun and hard to stop playing :)
My only complaint is that the game is too short for my liking. It would be nice to see some super challenging levels. After the first time through it would be nice to turn off the 'unfortunate event' that happens after each round so you can quickly get back into game play.
The game has replayability by trying to improve your time to beat the 'expert time'. I've only managed to make it a couple times. You can't memorize the answers as the game boards are randomly generated so while the characters stay the same, you can't improve your score by 'knowing' the answers.
Because it's short, I don't think it's worth full price but the fun of playing something really different is worth the $5 I paid.

Too short, unfortunately
I found this game thoroughly enjoyable.
It requires deductive logic to solve. It's sort of got a 'clue' element to it. You need to find out which person is in which room with what object/item etc.
While the graphics are pretty old school, that wasn't a major issue for me.
My main complaint is the game length. It's way too short of a game, IMO. You can finish it in one night. Is it worth the price? $3 - yes, $7 - no.

I really liked playing this game! I thought it was really interesting, and the puzzles weren't too challenging but weren't too easy.
However, I think it's both a blessing and a curse that I've read the books before playing this game. For one thing, I thought it was a cool touch that they added trivia from the books to challenge you. But what I personally didn't like, at least about the swapping puzzles, is that the puzzles didn't really follow any certain timeline of events, just things that didn't make sense. But that's just me.
The visuals were okay. Text was a bit hard to read, but I give the creators props for trying to make it loyal to the book art and textual style. Didn't play with sounds.
Overall, I would recommend this game!

Nothng Unfortunate in this Game
I, personally, found the game to be just ok. It's a game of deductive reasoning. By using the clues given, you determine who or what goes in which "box/room" of the house. As you level up, there are more "boxes" or "rooms" in the house. If you look closely at the clues to the right of the house, there's no way you can get it wrong.
I got bored after 15 minutes and I leveled up each time and was rewarded with the same treats repeatedly and the same unfortunate events kept happening repeatedly. I was done.
Needless to say, this isn't a purchase for me, but I will recommend it for anyone who wants to find out about the unfortunate events.

This was an unfortunate event
Worst game I ever tried to play. I positively hated it! I am pretty patient and want to believe it's just me having a hard time with it, but after trying it a second time, I realize that, no, it's the game. Like nothing I've ever encountered before. I guess when trying for uniqueness, they certainly succeeded.
I never could get the point of the game.
There was no real clear explanation of how the game is played. It's just a series of puzzle-like items. The reviews of others made me think it would be top-notch. I'm sorry I wasted the money.
