Encourage math drills through fun game play with Sum Swamp. Journey through the swamp by adding and subtracting numbers on the dice. Includes gameboard, 4 swamp creature game pieces, 2 number dice, and an operations dice.
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 PainterSee all Product description

Our "solution" to this so far has been to just ignore the rule of landing exactly on the exit space, treating the exit space as any old space and ignoring the whole loop idea. This makes the game super short, but that's better for my 4 year old and she still gets addition/subtraction practice without the torture of drawing the game out for hours. I may end up taking a sharpie to the board and changing the placement of the 3 and 5 spaces to where they are SUPPOSED to be, to make it more playable.
If Learning Resources will either correct their game board or send me the older version of the board that actually makes sense, I will update my review with additional stars, as I think it's a great game otherwise. How did this major flaw make it all the way to production?
Also, I noticed Learning Resources commented on another review recently, stating that the only updates they made to the board were artistic. That is patently false and is the difference between a one and five star game/review for me.
I do understand the frustration and I'm sorry you're so disappointed in the update. Please know we value your product review and I've shared your frustrations with our game designers.
I do have to say, your solution to the loop is brilliant. It gives younger kids the opportunity to escape the frustration, yet offers older children an opportunity to sharpen their basic math skills.
Again, thank you for taking the time to review our and please contact me directly with additional questions or ideas. -Selene
He really enjoys it and caught on immediately. The only part that was a bit confusing for him was the even/odd, however at this time we have just taught him that 1,3,5 are odd and that 2,4,6 are even. We'll talk more about that later. He loves the pictures and figuring out the numbers. I can really see how it is helpful for learning as he has to determine which number is larger, then do the addition or subtraction. He has some memorized like any number minus itself is zero, or 2+2 = 4, etc. What I really like is that it has given him a nice and fun addition to simple math.
He loves the little pieces and caught on very quickly to doing the addition and subtraction. The only part of the game that is a little tedious is the endless loop, however you can institute a rule that you only do it so many times.
Helps that the little characters are rubbery so if you bump the board they don't just slide off and people lose their places!
Box seems extra durable as well. Appreciate it all being so thoughtfully laid out.
