Reviews & Comments:
BGG Hilary Hartman:"This is the first game we've been able to play as a family, and any game that gets both of our boys shrieking, "Go away monster!" is a GREAT game in my book."
BGG Rob Metzler:"Perfect game for little kids. When we play all the kids are involved because no matter who pulls the monster everyone has to shout "go away"."
BGG Kermit Rickenberg:"I gave it as a gift to my twin nephews. They were 2.5 old and loved pulling things out of the bag and matching them. Very clever game for their age. Not really a luck game, but actually skill, which any youngster is learning: touch. Well done and a must own if you have little kids."

How To Play:Reach into the bag to find the puzzle pieces that match the pictures on your bedroom game board. If a monster pops out, don't be scared...just tell that silly old thing to go away. Then get rid of him for good by tossing him into the monster pit and out of your room. You take charge, and the monsters take off!

Ng Ya Hui, Singapore:""My 2-year-old daughter simply loves the game "Go Away, Monster!" She will squeal with excitment whenever someone draws out a monster. Very soon, she initiates play with us and with our friends' children by pointing to the game and say "Play Monsie monsie!" Hence this board game has become a great tool to bring together family and friends. Even my parents do not have much education and have not played board games before are able to play with my daughter! It also gives us opportunity to teach her important social rules like taking turns. Lastly, it has helped to increase her vocabulary as soon she started to say words like "take", "go away", "lamp", "bed", and many many more...Wonderful Game! :)
