Numberella is a game that works at many different levels. Children can use ‘The Thief’ to steal each other’s Antcoins, or Miss A. Go to make someone skip a turn. They love Hijacking each other’s questions, and dice duelling each other for the winnings.
Parents love how using Harry Hijack lets them take pressure off a child who isn’t sure of an answer – but still gives the child a chance to win. Teachers love the simple fact that Numberella makes kids enthusiastic about maths.
The game also has an academic edge – each of the 2 levels is pegged to the UK’s key stage syllabus 1, 2 or 3, and there are extension questions in each deck designed to prepare children for 7+, 11+ and 13+ independent school entry exams. In one hour of game play, four children will complete at least 300 questions, rapidly accelerating their mental arithmetic and fact recall.
