after buying a cheap copy of this game from bargain store and binning it, i decided to get the real thing! upon arrrival it was all assembled other than popping few paper faces into game board whichwas effortless to do, then ready to play! great build quality and sturdy too, highly recommend getting this travel game, my son aged 7 loves it! and it very easy to transport too as the two game boards clip into each other snugly. 9/10 from me.
