Compose Yourself Review

I am so excited to have had the chance to try the newest game from ThinkFun - Compose Yourself
Whether you are musically inclined or not, this game offers entertainment for all.  No musical skills are required! This game comes with a 60 clear music cards, each with 4 different music arrangements (depending on which way the card is flipped), a storage bag and instructions.
 The card are high quality, sturdy and durable.  Each card is different, and can be flipped and rotated to create a new musical arrangement.  A corresponding number indicates which note combination is being viewed.
 Game play is as simple as the contents of the box.  The player simply chooses 4 (or a multiple of four, such as 8, 12, or 16) cards.  After entering the web address and loading the site, a user profile is created by entering an email address and creating a password.
 Once that is complete, the player enters the four digit code from the card into one of the spots on the website.
 Once the code is entered, the image of the card in hand appears on the screen.  After entering the code, the player has the option to listen to that card's musical arrangement by itself.
Once the four codes have been entered, the player can hear the entire arrangement put together.  Players have the option of listening to the composition in Marimba, Orchestra, or both.

For players 6+, this game has tons of potential.  With nearly limitless combinations, the compositions are as unique as the player, and provide hours of fun.  Compositions can be edited, saved and shared,  While this may not entertain adults as long, it is sure to be tons of fun for kids.  My children and I played around with it for quite some time, and even though they are younger than 6 (5 and 3), with help from me, they had a lot of fun making their own songs.

Check it out for yourself!  You can get this game here

I received this game for free in exchange for my honest and un-biased review.
