As you roast hot dogs on the fire, go birdwatching, tell ghost stories, grab a beverage from the cooler and do cartwheels on the beach, the conversation turns to what's on the group's mind. There are awkward moments talking about sex, chats about nature or the most important ingredients in a hot dog.
It's a short game, but one that feels like living in a well-observed novel. It captures the expanding of horizons and the perplexity of moving from childhood to adulthood.

10+ year-olds usually have the required skill to enjoy this game. Still, it's important for parents and guardians to consider the maturity required to process the game content. You don't need quick reactions for this game. The focus is on choosing where to go and conversation choices. You do, however, need some maturity (and maybe lived experience of puberty) to appreciate the awkward story that unfolds.
