Magnetic Travel Games
Great assortment, good quality
We ordered 3 dozen of these for our wedding reception, and were very pleased with them. In each box of 12 there were no duplicates (though some of them were games we've never heard of, like 9 Man's Morris, and an odd version of Solitaire). All of the games seemed to be a pretty good quality, and they all came with little magnetic pieces that fit inside the board when closed. The only minor drawback was that the instructions were printed on the inside of the boxes, so you would have to take the boxes apart to read them.
Everyone had a lot of fun with them, and they're a great, cheap way to keep people entertained!

So many fun games for so little!
We like to play games in my household and I thought this would be a great addition to have when we go traveling. I was impressed by the quality and variety. I thought this purchase might have been a bust from reading some of the reviews. I guess I got a good batch. There was a couple of scratches on one of the games, but it was not big deal. The board was still in decent shape to play the game on. I also like how the pieces are magnetic and stay on the board even when you bump it a little. The rules are printed on the inside of the cardboard packaging the games come in. I cut the game rules out and put them inside the games where the pieces are stored. This was a great buy! I am glad I ignored the reviews.

I was going to give the games to out-of-town family as stocking stuffers...but after seeing them in person, I would be too embarrassed to give those as gifts, even just in stockings.
The cases are cheap plastic and barely close. the pieces fly everywhere and they are hard to manipulate. I thought the games, overall, would be somewhat larger than they actually are.

What I expected
These games my children love and I have bought more than one box. They do lose the pieces and sometime break one, but for the money and the fun they get. I will keep buying them

Great product. Purchase every year.
Great product to include in children's Christmas boxes going to foreign countries.

No instructions for some of the games that children need.
Again, the plastic pieces were small.
The playing boards did not match to the opposite folded side.

Not worth it
The games are cheap, weak plastic frames and hinges that hold a thin metal game board and cheap plastic pieces.
The hinges were broken already on one of the games when it arrived. The others look they'll be gone soon.
I'm very disappointed in this purchase.

Poor Quality for Price
I had ordered these to sell at a Santa Shop. For the price I paid for them , I would have needed to sell for $2 to make profit. The quality was poor, I opened one to inspect, the metal game board fell off the plastic, and when I opened it to see the game pieces inside, it wouldn't stay shut. If it was being packaged with other good items, I might would buy, but not too sell by itself.

good for kids, not great quality
i bought these as well as the other magnetic travel games that oriental trading offers. these had a great variety-i only had one duplicate out of 12, so that's 11 different games. unlike one of the previous raters-mine DID come in the colorful boxes. the instructions are printed on the INSIDE of the boxes, which is a bad aspect. on arrival some were already kinda flimsy- the metal board part were somewhat loose on the plastic . i did like that the pieces fit inside and everything you need is included (including mini dice for some games).
games included: solitaire, checkers, space invader, snakes and ladders, 2 different racing games, 9 mends morris, and more.
i think they were too expensive for the quality-i have seen similar at the dollar store and then you can pick what you want.
