|smithhemb||8|| || || Mathy scrabble-like game that plays especially well with 2. Addition only (and then only up to 24). The challenge, of course, isn't in the math but in the tile-laying. Still, it's good math practice for early elementary-aged kids. And fun for their parents. Because you may only play one tile each turn, any move you set up for yourself may be made by your opponent. Requires strategic decision-making but also involves luck of the draw (which encourages a certain amount of risk-taking and adds to the suspense). Attractive components.
This is one I'd happily play with another adult.
|mudrash||7||8||Yes ||A nice relaxing game, that does make you think. Would be great for simple/advanced addition facts, depending on the number of tiles a player is adding up. Good math practice in determining final scores too (addition and multiplication).
|Shade_Jon||7||8||Some ||24/7 is all about counting up to 7 and 24 in 8 different directions at once. While somewhat simplistic for adults, the game is appealing enough for children aged 8 and up. For younger kids, they will likely continue to forget the rule about no row adding up to more than 24.
The mechanics are easy, and the rules and scoring similarly so.
