Amazing good fun. I played it when I was around 15 years (2'nd edition) and just bought this revised 4'th edition (I'm now 40) and it's still just as fun.
Glad they replaced the game characters with plastic figures instead of paper cards. If you are artistically inclined, you can paint shapes or hire out the job if I'm not there (or, of course, let them be unpainted).
Several fun expansion pack available for purchase so it should last for many more years. (I bought "the reaper" which is really good.)
I play with his son (who is 7) and some I have to translate but it does not detract from the experience, and he ultimately loves it.
Very highly recommended.
