I'm more of a word-game person myself (Scrabble and Bananagrams are among my favorites), but Sumoku is so much fun! I thought it would be an interesting challenge to try a math/number game since my brain is a little rusty in those sectors. There are a few variations described on the instruction sheet--so far I've just played the regular multi-player version. Variations include solo sumoku, speed sumoku, team sumoku, and spot sumoku. All have basically the same point, which is to construct or find combinations of numbers that add up to multiples of the "key number" (there is a die included which is used to determine the key number). Each tile has a number (1-9) and one of 6 different colors. Colors can only be used once per row/column, but numbers may appear multiple times in the same row/column. For the multi-player version, players get points for the sum of the rows/columns they construct. Once all the tiles are used up, the player with the most points wins.

Game-play is very simple and easy to understand once you've read the directions. The game itself, however, is more challenging than you might expect. "Combining numbers to create multiples of 4? NO PROBLEM!" Right? Ehhhh...not really. Especially once the game gets going, and multiple positions open up for different combinations (which ultimately determine your points!). The each-color-only-once-per-row-or-column rule also makes things interesting as the game progresses.

The packaging is well-designed and practical. The cone-shape works well because the bag stands on its own, making it very easy to draw new tiles out of the bag. It zips securely so you don't have to worry about tiles spilling all over the place, and the material it's made of is sturdy so it should hold up over the years!

[...] I just want to say that this is a perfect homeschool game. It provides addition and multiplication practice, adds in some Sudoku-like puzzle problem solving, and it is FUN. Let me emphasize the FUN part ... we play lots of educational games, and some are more fun than others. This is fun for adults as well as children (as long as they have the requisite math background), so it is a win on many levels: mama likes it, daughter likes it, and it's a quality learning experience. Sumoku is definitely time and money well spent.

My mother just recently purchased this game from a store in Florida and brought it home with her. A lot of us kids were math majors in college and some english majors. We all have a lot of fun trying to put all the pieces together and work out the puzzle. The game also helps us keep our minds sharp because of all the adding. Its hours of fun because no one wants to stop playing!

Like all the best and enduring passtimes such as cards, dominos and Scrabble, Sumoku is a simple game, which combines basic math with play. As the level of difficulty can be changed to suit the group playing, it really can be enjoyed by anyone aged 7 to 107! The small bag of tiles can be taken anywhere, making it a perfect travel game too. I bought my first Sumoku while on holiday in Provencetown MA and brought it back to the UK, where all our friends and relatives went crazy for it - but because there are no stockists over here I ended up giving it away to my nephews and having to buying more on line. I cannot rate this game highly enough - enjoy!

I am yet to play this game, but it has been played many times over the past 3 weeks by my children, and their adult relatives. We are all avid Bananagrams players, and this seemed like a good maths version of that game, so it was purchased as a Christmas present for my 12 year old daughter. They both have played with their dad, uncle and aunt...all engineering and computer science people who are strong in maths, and it has kept them all engaged and wanting to play over and over. If you like Bananagrams, and would like to also develop the mathematical part of your brain this is a good. Only issue is that under not so bright light, and depending on the angle at which one is sitting, distinguishing the colours on the tiles is an issue for people who are colourblind. Both my husband and is brother are colour blind and this is their only complaint about this game...but they still play and win even while complaining about their difficulty in distinguishing the colours.

I bought this for my 8 year old triplets. I wanted to add more math games for their homework time. This game does the trick. It works with adding and multiplication. It's a lot of fun and gets them thinking. The best part is they ask to play it. I recommend this game to everyone.

I got this for Christmas and LOVE it. It is fun to play solo, but lots more fun with a group or pair. I encourage every family to get one of these games. Not much more to say, but did I mention it was fun?

My husband and I both enjoy playing this math game. It sort of plays like scrabble but with numbers. I also like that it is not like any other game out there.
