Product Description

Amazon.com

Kids will have a terrific time learning math skills as they avoid the hilarious pitfalls of the Sum Swamp. Designed for two to four players, this game is sure to develop and sharpen beginning math skills, because the only way to escape the mire is to roll the dice and add and subtract your way around the board. If you're lucky, you'll be able to take the Crocodile Short Cut, although sooner or later everyone gets caught in the Endless Loop. Landing on special squares, such as Even or Odds or a number space, makes things even more interesting; you could get stuck for quite a while. The best part is that this is a game kids can grow with--children 5 to 6 will find it a learning challenge, and older kids can play for fun. The game is an Oppenheim Best Toy award winner. --Marianne Painter

Product Description

I have been a kindergarten/first grade teacher for 12 years. I have this game and school and wanted to order another one for my own grandchildren. It is a great game that practices addition and subtraction while having fun. I highly recommend it.

We bought this for my boys and they really enjoyed it right from the start. There is addition and subtraction practice and the concept of odd and even numbers, but the kids don't care because it's fun. The target ages are about 4 to 7, but it's fun enough that Mommy doesn't mind playing it again and again.

Sum Swamp isn't *so* much fun that, say, they'd ever want to make a movie about it. I don't think you're going to see Liam Neeson and Jennifer Lopez starring in a summer blockbuster thriller about a magical swamp where you have to roll dice and get through it, and need to find the magic combination to get out of the "endless" loop.

On the other hand, playing games with your kids and teaching them basic math can be pretty mundane, if not boring, if you don't have some sort of story. So, as far as an activity goes to make this easy and fun, Sum Swamp fits the bill. The are charming aspects to the board, for instance, that make it play a bit like Candyland (possible "short cuts").

The game is remarkably simple. A board, two numbered dice, a plus/minus die, and four character pieces for the players. Theoretically, you could build this game on your own if you were so inclined, say, with a bunch of toy cars or ponies and call it Sum Race. The plus/minus dice would be hard to procure, though.

The best part, though, kidding aside, is that my kid actually asks to play this game preferentially over, say, other lame-u-tational games like Sequence, SuperWhy ABC Letter Game, etc.

Part of the charm, also, is that the game takes maybe a grand total of 5-10 minutes to get through a game, if you're efficient about it. So it's not going to stretch on and on without some sort of redemption, like a bad movie might. More reason why they probably shouldn't turn Sum Swamp into a movie. Unless, maybe, if they had Samuel L. Jackson in it.

Here are the directions straight outta' the box:
- Each player chooses a game piece and places it on start. Players roll a number die and the player with the highest number goes first.

I have 3 small children and we love playing this game as a family! Grantedm my 2 year old just likes to roll the dice but it is great at reinforcing the math concepts that I am teaching the kids in homeschool. My 4 year old is starting to be able to add and subtract and my almost 6 year old is gaining confidence in her ability to add and subtract. Not only does it reinforce math concepts but also helps to teach them to be good sportsmen, taking turns, and gives parents the opportunity to help them deal with disappointment if they don't win. The best part is that this this game is a lot of fun and they have no idea that they're learning all of these great things!

The game is attractive, my kids like it and request it. Sum Swamp does stimulate the kids' thinking. My 7 y.o. strategizes and knows exactly what rolls of the dice he needs at critical points on the game board...limited and not the objective, but still problem solving. Our four y.o. is reinforcing the concept of counting when reading the dice and moving the game piece; he is also grasping addition from this game and has not been introduced to it elsewhere. I think it is high priced for what it is and there is not enough repetition in the time it takes to play for it to get the learning done. The little variation in the game board landing spaces and their rules are neat. The down side, if you don't guide the children they can count moving the game piece by individual number on each dice and not learn addition or subtraction. Not one of my favorite teaching/educational repetition tools, but is certainly acceptable. Best for introducing basic math concepts, i.e., number identification, counting, addition and subtracting, and simple rules to preschoolers and kindergarten students. Shipping and timing were satisfactory! Thank you!

The game is great for a variety of reasons - it teaches kids addition and subtraction in a fun way, rolling the dice is fun for smaller kids who aren't there yet to count, and it also teaches kids to deal with winning and not winning (we don't use losing as a term at home - just our little positive reinforcement thing). The game makes is fun and children learn without feeling that they are sitting down to learn something. Quality of the game in terms of hte board, dice, and pieces is great too.

My daughter has begun her basic arithmetic, and this game made "studying" fun and relevant. It is also good family time! I highly recommend it for the first grader (or earlier, if that is the case) who is practicing their early math. Too bad the numbers only go up to six (the dice only go to six).

Sum Swamp is a fun and easy to use game about addition and subtraction. The board seems durable and there are only three dice and four rubber game pieces to keep track of. The game is easy to understand and play and my first grade students can play it without any help. I think it would be very appropriate for K-2. The game reinforces the additon and subtraction signs and odd and even numbers. I would recommend it for any first or second grade classroom as well as for at home fun.
