Product Description

Amazon.com

Practice makes perfect in the world of math, but practice is more fun when it's a game instead of homework. The rules of this board game resemble those in Scrabble, but Smath is played by creating math equations instead of words. The game includes a playing board and lots of tiny tiles with numbers, signs for math operations, and brackets to create more complex equations, which players can place on the board horizontally or vertically. The game can be played at different levels of difficulty, from simple addition problems to equations combining operations (for example, (2)(2 + 3) = 5 x 2). The game is for two to four players at different levels of math proficiency, making this an educational (but still entertaining) game for the entire family, the classroom, or for home schoolers. --Marcie Bovetz

This game is a lot like Scrabble, only you use numbers to make math equations rather than using letters to make words. It can be played on different levels; for instance, for younger children you can eliminate the division signs or brackets to make it easier. Just like Scrabble, the harder-to-use numbers and signs have higher point values, and there are bonus squares on the board that can also increase the point value of a single tile or the whole equation. Players add on to existing equations on the board. There are enough angles to the game to keep it interesting. Towards the end, the game gets more frustrating as there are few spaces left on the board to fit equations in. If you like Scrabble and math, you'll enjoy this game. It is also a fun and social way to help kids practice their math skills.

I realize some people find anything educational boring but come on... Don't blame the educational game for being exactly what it claims to be -- AN EDUCATIONAL GAME!
My kids and I both enhanced our thinking skills while spending hours around the game table playing Smath. We laughed, and we learned, while challenging ourselves and each other!
One reviewer claims the variety of plays is 'small' but I would challenge that reviewer to play again and open their mind to the endless possibilities of lengthening their equations and challenging their mind.
I played the game with three children ages 8 to 14 (two females and one male) and each of them had a blast.
This is a child's game that can challenge adults as well. What better way to bring the whole family together for some educational playtime where NO ONE need be bored.
For ANY Individual that needs to brush up on their basic math and/or logic skills and/or just enjoys a new challenge -- Smath is worth it!

I purchased this game for my family and we enjoy it very much. We play with our 7 year-old son and he loves the game, sure he seldom makes it to the end of a game, but in the age of video game junkies getting him to sit down and play with math for 20 minutes is a miracle. I love how you can adjust the level of play by leaving out the multiplication, division and parenthesis for your younger players. The only complaint I have is that the rules state that you cannot combine tiles to make 2 digit numbers, making the largest number possible 12. We just instituted "House Rules" and that took care of that problem. This game is more durable than a very similar game that is twice as expensive. I love this game, and for someone who enjoys formulating equations rather than forming words, this beats Scrabble hands down.

I realize there is some conflict of opinion in regards to 'Smath, and I just thought I'd share my thoughts on this game (instead of asking my boss for work since I have nothing to do right now). A few of my fellow civil engineering students and I came upon this game at a flea market-style event inside a Brooklyn concrete park about a month ago, and we were surprised that a mathematical version of Scrabble existed. More than surprised, we were excited. The lady sold it to us for $3, and we proceeded to find another park with grass (astroturf, actually, but whatever) where we sat down and played. We opened it up and found it to be in excellent condition. The only thing missing was a bag to keep the tiles in, but aside from that, everything was in working order. I guess that supports the comments on this board game's durability.

As for the game itself, I found it to be very enjoyable, if not challenging. The parentheses tiles definitely make it worthwhile, too, allowing for some creativity. I haven't played with any children (only 20 year olds), so I can't comment on its usefulness in education, but it did spark some interesting debates (specifically whether or not you can divide zero by zero; you can't). The lack of numbers greater than 12 is a bit bothersome, but as mentioned in another review, house rules can be set to ease that problem. The rules also are a bit vague when it comes to the bonus point tiles.

All in all, though, a great buy considering it was only $3. Even at $10, this can be well worth your purchase, especially if you're an engineer.

Plus, it's just fun to say: 'SMATH 'SMATH 'SMATH 'SMATH

I remember playing this as a teenager. For a while, I mercilessly beat my younger siblings and yearned for a challenge. I thought it was one of the most simplest games made. One boring Saturday, my dad pulled out the game and we commenced playing. Dad and I battled, barely keeping ahead of the other. After 3 hours of brackets and numbers, we tried to goad each other into giving up and tried to trip the other up. I eventually won. It came with a cost however: Both of us had excruciating headaches. Funny thing is school math became easier. My Father still groans when he hears the word "Smath". From a Female Chemistry Graduate (requires a lot of math).
