In the span of only a couple hours kids can learn the multiplication basics while having a little competitive fun at the same time. I took off one star because the multiplication only went up to 9 x 9, whereas the multiplication tables in schools go to 12 x 12. This is otherwise a very small complaint on a great product at an amazing price.
A quick word about the cards: they are the thickness of a traditional playing card, have approximately the same width, and are probably an inch or so longer. I mention this only because I did not see it in a product description or review.

You can play the random war game where you deal the entire deck, each player plays a random card and the highest product wins. In our family variation, we deal ten cards to each player and turn over one card on the discard pile. In turn each player can try to take the discard pile by playing a higher card or pass. The player who takes a trick gets to draw again and we play until someone runs out of cards. This way the kids have to calculate the product of each card in their hand.
Adults can "throw" the game in subtle ways to keep the kids interested. I teach the kids to try always to play the lowest "winning" card, and to play the lowest card they have if they are going to lose a trick. We have the player who wins a trick recite all the facts in that trick ("6x4 is 24, 7x2 is 14, and I win with 6x8 is 48").
We play for 10 or 15 minutes at a time and then go do something else. It is important to make sure that it stays a game rather than overtly a study session. Make up new games, play low card wins, that sort of thing to keep it interesting.
It's so much easier when we can start and end our evening Homework Sessions with Math War.
Great learning tool, and fun, too....for ALL of us.
