    Practice a variety of math skills with this versatile wood tile numbers crossword game. The set contains 108 1" x 1" wooden square tiles, each displaying a number from 1-9. Players compete to build intersecting chains of number tiles that add to the number 22 (in a crossword pattern). Most of the numbers on the tiles are black (positive numbers), but a few of the tiles have numbers in different colors to represent negative numbers. Of course, this game can also be adapted to focus on different skills (subtraction, multiplication, or division), or to arrive at sums other than the number 22. Instructions and game ideas are included, and the tiles come in a zippered canvas bag for easy storage. ~ Lisa

    You better have nimble fingers and a quick, calculating mind if you hope to win this rambunctious math card game! The deck is composed of 73 cards, each of which has a large yellow number (ranging from 1-10) on the center, and a 1, 2, or 3 in the corner. The cards are shuffled, the top card is turned over in the center of the table and the rest of the cards are dealt evenly into each player's draw pile. Players must draw one card at a time into their hand and play them on the center pile as quickly as they can. There is no limit to how many cards they can hold in their hand, but they must draw them individually. If the card in the middle is a '6' with a 2 in the corners, players may play either a '4' or an '8'. If addition or subtraction results in a number greater or less than ten, ten can be added or subtracted to the number to put it back in the 1-10 range [e.g. if it is a '9' with a 3, 9 + 3 = 12, 12 - 10 = 2 so a two could be played, or a 6 (9 3 = 6)]. The first player to run out of cards is the winner. So put away that calculator (you won't have time to use it!) and get that brain racing for the win! 2-4 players, game time is about 5-10 minutes. Cards are stored in a handy travel case. ~ Megan

    This game is a fun way to practice counting money and to exercise your math skills. Unlike many money games, it includes coins ranging from pennies to half dollars rather than just paper money. One, five, ten, and twenty dollar bills are included. Each player starts the game with $10 and proceeds around the board. The board is the size of a typical game board and has several types of spaces you can land on. There is a spinner in the middle of the board that tells players how many spaces to move. There are pay days (collect $5), library fines (pay $.18) and spaces where you either have to pay or collect money for various reasons (these reasons are more realistic than other games, for example players get $4 for washing the windows and not a million dollars for discovering titanium deposits in their backyard). The board and spinner also have spaces that make players draw a "Take a Chance" card, which offer additional monetary rewards or punishments. Ultimately, the player with the most money wins the game (though there are some variations for playing and ending the game). This is a great game because it is simple to play, has kids make change and add/subtract money in a fun way, and can be very quick to play (or last longer if you want it to). More practical for kids than Monopoly or Payday, this is sure to cause some mathematical fun in your house. Six player markers are included. 2-6 players. ~ Rachel

    One of the "blessings" of being in my family is helping to review products. Sometimes it can be dull, but sometimes we receive fun stuff, and Melissa and I often end up playing games like this one. This game would be good practice for a younger child that knows his basic operations, but it was also challenging for Melissa and I, as we studied the board and our tiles to find the equation worth the most possible points. The board is similar to a Scrabble board, with 361 squares including 36 3S squares (3 times symbol score), 38 2S squares (2 times symbol square), 9 2E squares (2 times equation score), and 8 3E squares, (3 times equation score). 44 sign tiles (plus, minus, times, and divide by); 78 number tiles, 0-9; 25 fraction tiles, with halves, thirds, fourths, and sixths; plus three blank tiles are included. This game plays like Scrabble, too. The same crossword structure is formed as each player picks nine tiles and uses as many as possible to get the most points, then restocks his tray. Equal signs are "free," but you are only allowed one per play. - Stephanie

    This fun card game is simple to learn and easy to play – and as an added bonus, kids will become more familiar and comfortable with money. Game play is similar to Uno, with players trying to discard cards in their hands by matching either the color or money amount on the previously played card. Each player is dealt 7 cards and the rest of the deck becomes the draw pile, with one card overturned to start the discard pile. The deck is composed of 110 cards, with cards featuring all coin types (from pennies to half dollars), $1.00 cards, wild cards, loose change cards (with varying amounts of odd change), tax collection cards, and bank withdrawal cards. Play goes clockwise, each player trying to be the first to empty their hand. You can match the money amount, either by playing the same coin or by announcing "Exact Change" and playing several cards that add up to the previously played card, or you can match the color. If you cannot discard, you must draw cards until you can play. Wild cards can be anything, but you must announce the color and amount when you play them. Tax collection cards force all other players to draw one card from the draw deck, and bank withdrawal cards forces an opponent of your choice to randomly draw a card from your hand. When one player runs out of cards, the round is over and they pick another player's hand, total the cards remaining and this becomes the balance in the bank account of the player who went out. The first player to "save" $2.00 is the winner. 2-6 players. ~ Megan

    Kids will have fun practicing their money counting skills with this coin card game. The set contains 108 cards (94 coin cards, 10 lucky find cards, and 4 save cards). Each coin card has a labeled color photo of a coin (nickel, dime, quarter or 50 cent piece), the lucky find cards have illustrations of a treasure chest with values greater than just one coin (30 cents, 35 cents, and 45 cents), and the save cards allow players to pass on their turns. The object of the game is to play cards that equal exactly one dollar without going over. Each player take turns drawing a card from the pile while playing a card from their hand to add to the running total of cards laid out on the table. Once a player plays a card that adds up to exactly one dollar, he/she gets to keep the pile and a new round is started. If a player plays a card that adds up to over one dollar, the player "busts" and claims the cards face down. When all of the cards have been used, the players tally up their points. Each dollar pile is worth one point, while each "bust" pile is a negative point. The player with the most points is the winner! For 2-6 players. ~ Lisa

    Kids have loved this classic game of making and spending money for generations. Players make money every month, but often (as in real life) you end up spending it just as fast (on bills, recreation, food, and more)! The game board looks like a calendar, and each day has a bill to pay or money earned. Roll the dice to see what day you land on and try to make it through the month without too many bills. The person with the most money left at the end of the month (or however months you decide to play) is the winner. Includes game board, 4 tokens, 1 red die, 17 deal cards, 35 mail cards, loan record pad, money, and rules. 2-4 players.

    My children go with us to exhibits and really practice making change. But they never seem to tire of it! One of their favorite activities in the early grades was to run a shop and count out change. So, it's no surprise that Presto-Change- O would be a real attraction at our house. The game is fast-paced and children learn not only to make change, but when to save and spend it as they travel around a colorful game board making everyday financial decisions. The winner is the first to save $10.00. Players are rewarded both for saving money and for using it to start a business. Very realistic plastic coins and paper bills are included. For 2-4 players.

    This game contains the same cards and is played in the same fashion as the Addition/Subtraction game. The only difference is that players try to make equations equal the center card by using multiplication instead of addition or subtraction.

    Tangoes is a fun puzzle game in which players must use tangram pieces (various random shapes) to make specific objects and shapes shown on puzzle cards. It's a fun game that develops creative thinking and problem-solving skills. Usually (like in the original Tangoes), players use only 7 tangram pieces to solve the puzzles, but in this double edition, there are 14 pieces that must be used! This makes the challenges even more fun as there are more pieces and puzzle options. This great set includes 112 puzzle cards which show the final shape that must be made (the solutions are on the back of the cards). There are also two sets of 14 puzzle pieces so two people can play at once! All this is stored in a durable case, which is perfect for on-the-go use. Double the fun of Tangoes!

    A teaching tool and a genuinely enjoyable math game in one beautiful package! The board consists of color-coded spaces from 1-101. Players try to reach 101 exactly with both pawns by adding, subtracting, multiplying, and dividing. Each turn, the active player rolls 2 10-sided dice, then uses each rolled number (one at a time) to perform an operation on the space their pawn is currently on. For example, if a player has 1 pawn on “14” and rolls a 7 and an 9, the player has 6 immediate options: subtract to 7 (14 – 7 = 7) or 5, add to 21 or 23, multiply to 98, or divide to 2.

    And remember the color-coding I mentioned? It works for multiplication and division! The “14” space is half-orange, half-purple. The “7” space is all purple. So, the player adds the colors together and looks for the space with 2 purple parts and 1 orange part – “98!” Likewise, if the player chose to divide “14” by “7”, they would simply subtract the “purple” color and look for the all-orange space. This provides a handy shortcut for those learning or reinforcing multiplication & division. Adding a final twist are “Action” and “Keeper” cards – when a pawn ends on a prime number above 10, they draw a card. Action cards are played immediately and allow players to switch pawns, roll again, or more. Keeper cards can be played any time during a player’s turn with beneficial actions or to harm their opponent. The suggested age is 10+, but the only requirement to play is basic math skills. For 2-4 players. 45-minute playtime.

    Winner of numerous awards, including the 2017 National Parenting Projects Award and Tillywig Toy Brain Child Award, and many others!

    How do you create 16 simple math games with 66 cards? Using tiny polka dots, of course! This unassuming deck comes in 6 “suits” of different colors representing numbers 0-10. Each suit represents these numbers differently: characters, 10-frames, domino rows, different-sized polka dots, etc. Each game is made from using these suits together or separately: for example, PowerDot (equivalent to War) is made by shuffling several decks together and dealing 11 cards to each player. Hungry Numbers is a simpler game which involves matching a “polka dot suit” card to the appropriate “character suit” (0-5), and Dot Tens is the same concept but uses different suits of dots 0-10. Each game reinforces a different numerical concept; PowerDot demonstrates correspondence and comparative operations, while the other two reinforce counting and matching. Other games range in complexity and teach different skill sets. And of course, the cards provide an excellent base for creating your own math (and even logic) games! For 1-6 players.
