The opinion of Tara who tested Little Secret with her children aged 10 and 12

During the autumn holidays my children aged 10 and 12 had the opportunity to discover a game that we didn’t know and they got it Toy Grand Prix 2022 in the Bluff category. Any idea with this hint? nope ? So I will reveal our opinion Little secretpublished by Atm Gaming and available at a suggested price of €25.

This card game is played between 3 and 9 people, for children over 10 years old and for an average playing time of 15 minutes.

Bluffing is the keyword in this game. You have to choose between 4-5 missions – each with a city in the world as a theme – distribute the cards according to the number of players and collect points. Nothing really original so far. But now it’s getting hard!!! A “Secret Codes” card is placed in the center of the table. A player chooses one of the ten words written on their own card and states its number (between 1 and 10). On the card that the players are holding, some words are named the “secret codes” written on the card ( Younger), and others have other words (named invaders). Depending on the number of players present at the table, a journalist card may also have been dealt.

little secret game rule of the game

How the game works: Players take turns naming a synonym or word related to the chosen number. Once the round is over, players determine who they think by pointing their finger Infiltrate (ie not the right word on the central card). The person concerned checks discreetly with the “secret codes” card. If the word is identical, that person is a pupils, she stops playing, but play continues and a new round is made. On the other hand, if the word is different, that person is a Infiltrate and the game is over. That Younger then award 1 point – there can be a maximum of 2 invaders and 1 journalist. If at the end of a game theInfiltrate is not unmasked, he gets 2 points and the Younger mark none. Small clarification, the journalist has no words on his card. So he has to find synonyms himself that can correspond to the word on the card “Secret Codes” just by listening to the other players. That thickens the game.

On our side we played 4 then 8. In the 2 configurations, The game is very beautiful and is easy and quick to learn. Children and adults can play together. A wide vocabulary is necessary and that is a very good point. The games are quite short and you never get bored. We even have a hearty laugh. It’s a good atmospheric game.

On the other hand, we still have some disappointments. In fact, the words of the cards Younger are the same color as those on the Secret Codes card, and the invaders another credit. But that’s the worryafter a few games we know and know what cards we have in hand. This does not eliminate the need to find the player Infiltratebut we think so Too bad because the little spice of discovering the game is no longer there. Second, there could have been many more words on the cards to find. Twenty would have been good I think.

Amandine’s opinion, who tested the Little Secret game with Maëvan, 13, and Juliette, 15

We played Little secret twice: the first time with 4 people (2 adults and 2 teenagers aged 13 and 15 Maëvan and Juliette), then the second time also with grandpa and grandma, so 6 players.

Our first impression before opening the game is that the packaging is beautiful, colorful and stylish. We really like the game concept of Bluff! And it’s a French product!!

When the game starts It’s our tall teenager reading the rules, which seem complicated to her. Then dad sticks to it, and with the video we start to understand the rules better. By playing, we begin to better understand the aim of the game and how to bluff successfully without getting caught by other players. It took us multiple games to really enjoy the game. The grandparents had trouble understanding the rules of the game and getting into the game Little secret assimilated, they also knew how to get into the game and found it fun!

little secret reviews

We didn’t understand the relationship between the words on the maps and the destinations (Paris, Miami…). Maybe it wasn’t…

For children under 12 we find that the game can be complicated, because we need to find synonyms, and the more we are, the more we need to find X synonyms. The recommended age (10 years) therefore does not seem to us appropriate for the abilities of a child of this age.

We would recommend Little secret, a game that is friendly, fun, and where to use a little strategy to avoid being quickly exposed. Pay attention to our facial expressions and appearance, especially with children.
