We invited some friends over for game night, with hopes of giving this game a true test. Being that it’s a fairly new game, from the fall of 2015, none of us had played it yet. Double Ditto gives a suggested minimum age of 10 ( possible 8 or 9 if they have strong reading and writing skills) and 4+ players. For our game night there were four adults, and two 11 year olds. Two different adults read the directions, which was humorous in itself, one scanned them and the other read them word for word.
First we played Double Ditto as the directions stated to, where everyone takes turns being the “Ditto master”. The person who’s turn it is, reads the card to the other players and is in charge of the timer as well. Once the card is read, everyone then quickly writes down their answers before the timer runs out.
One thing to note is that you need enough pencils or pens for everyone. Had the weather cooperated this game was going to be played at a picnic, however it rained so we were at home and inside. Lucky for us because had we been at the picnic, we would not have had enough pencils. Something to keep in mind if you bring this game somewhere. Part of the object of the game is to try to get the same answers as the ditto master, the person who’s turn it is to read the card. A few things we noticed that can really change how this game goes:
- Age of players
- Educations or jobs of players
- How well the players know each other prior to playing the game

Question about scoring: If player #1 is the master, and player #3 matches both of answers of #1, do they score 3 points? I think the answer is yes. Now the confusion: If player 3 matches player #4, do they score 3 points? Do they score any points? I think the answer is no. But in the rules attached, the answer is yes. Which is the answer?
