Come forth and multiply with PLYTOctober 3, 2013
I can see how this game could be good for the older children, practicing multiplying multiple numbers in their heads but I cant quite see the fun element involved.
I was always really good at mathematics but even I struggled when it came to multiplying 6 dice and hubby struggled after 4. I can see the game being used in secondary schools to improve maths skills but I can also see the kids groaning as the teacher pulled it out of the cupboard. The board itself looks really plain and the colours don’t scream out fun to me.
I really wanted to like this game but will have to just admit that for us, right now it is not suitable. The rules are too complicated, the multiplication is too complicated and the board looks boring. I am sure someone will like it though?
