How it works
When you spin the pointer-you get a number.The other player takes a coin from the pouch and if it is a multiple of the former,he wins.If you fail to identify the relation, you lose and the next player repeats the same thing. Players have to use multiplication skills extensively to win. Combined with glossy coins, these cleverly designed game rules work to increase the amount of practice and fun at the same time!

The first is called Say Cheese. It's a multiplication game that stems from a short story you read from the direction booklet. After that, you distribute cloth bags and the game chips.
Following the rules, you take turns spinning the spinner and following the directions with your chips until someone has none left. With each turn, your task is to determine whether the number on your chip is a multiple of the number on the spinner. With some large numbers on the chips, this can be a bit of a challenge.
My Big Helper was totally up for that. She enjoyed seeing how fast she could determine whether the chips had multiples and usually knew super fast. She liked using big numbers from the spinners and was in it to win it. My Little Man, on the other hand, while he played doesn't love multiplication. He enjoyed the game but it wasn't his favorite.
The directions were a bit complicated to figure out. Several times we'd continue play and then have to refer back to the directions to clear something up. Several times we still weren't sure what we were supposed to do and so just made up our own rules. Part of this, I think, is because English was apparently not the native language of the people who wrote the directions. Also, they often gave examples of the rules instead of just explaining them. Since it is a simple kids' game, however, this wasn't a major problem.
All in all, the game was fun. The pieces were colorful and kid-friendly, and it definitely challenged the players to know their math facts. The storyline was cute and the rules are simple. This is definitely a fun, educational game - and best of all, it would be easy to create variations that could extend the usefulness of the game.
Strong math ties
Variations would be easy to create
Not your traditional math game - asks students to work backwards for find answers
Costs under $20
Instructions are somewhat unclear and include a few grammatical errors
It may take some time for students to get accustomed to identifying factors instead of solving mathematical equations
The second game we played is called Ocean Raiders. This game is about addition and includes a variation for subtraction. This game has a board and strongly resembles Chutes and Ladders. The board contains 49 spaces in a non-linear order and has tornadoes that move a player randomly around the board. Essentially, you roll the die and then add that number to the number of the space on which your token stands. Because the board spaces are scattered randomly around the board, the student can't simply count the proper number of spaces but must add the two numbers together in order to move ahead.
My Little Man loved this game. He had fun zooming his token around the board and especially loved rolling the die, which isn't a cube. It's unusual shape makes it even more fun to roll. I appreciate the variations that are included in the rule book. My son knows his addition facts well, and so we completed the game in far faster time than the directions estimated, but it was still fun.
Colorful, fun materials
Easy to understand
Several people can play at once
Costs less than $20
Could be fun for a limited time only
This same basic game could be played using other game boards, like Uncle Wiggly or Chutes and Ladders
These games would make great gifts! If you have kids learning their addition or multiplication facts, these games would make great additions to their educational tools.
I received a free copy of these games by LogicRoots. All opinions expressed are my own.
An adaptation for kids who are still learning their multiplication tables is to start with all the number tokens in plain sight, laid out on the table, and all the bug and dessert tokens in the "trash bin" box. Spin the spinner and look for a number token that is a multiple of either number, say cheese when you find it, and pick one token out of the trash bin (giggle, giggle, giggle) if you're right. Person with most trash tokens wins.
This is our second game we've gotten from Logic Roots and it's safe to say they will be taking over the educational world in no time. Their no-nonsense way of practicing the most important math skills is like none other.
My 8 year old daughter absolutely love the colorful pets and the idea of "adopting" them. My 12 year old was equally enthused and enjoyed checking her sister's answers for mistakes. (Silly kids!)
The game is based on the idea that you go around and divide up "food" for the animals. If there are 6 pets at your stop and you draw a card with "36" written on it, you must divide the 36 treats equally among the 6 animals. The kids love distributing the food tokens but after playing it a few times, they knew their facts well enough to skip that step. I do believe it helped them understand exactly what division is about, though. Seeing the food equally distributed is a HUGE brain boost.
As with "Say Cheese Café" (the multiplication version of this game) the game exceeded my expectations. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this to other homeschool families, friends or relatives. It is the perfect addition to any game closet!
