You make a few references to yourselves then switch to kids then to todays audience. Why do I think that in this case only one of those is actually speaking a preference? I don't "have lots of kids at my house" but in my experience with kids, they generally like solving puzzles. Of course this game isn't aimed at ages 3-12 anyway so of course they will find some of them a little difficult.
