Mathable Deluxe Review

Mathable is a new range of board games from Wooky, created in partnership with maths whizz Carol Vorderman.   It is a crossword style game, that uses numbers instead of words to test the keenest players.

We were sent Mathable Deluxe Wooden Edition which is a game suitable for two to four players ages 9 and over.

The deluxe wooden edition includes the game board, 4 wooden tile racks, 108 wooden tiles and a deluxe tile bag.

To gain the highest score players must use all their mathematical skills, logic and strategy to outwit the other players.

Players have to make simple maths equations by crossing numbers on the game board, scoring points for each number tile played.   The mathematical operations: divide, multiply, add and subtract, are applied to pairs of numbers horizontally and vertically.    So if there is a 3 and a 4 on the board, you could play a 7 or a 12 tile to score points.

This is definitely an educational game for keen thinking kids.  It'll exercise the grey matter as you test your numeracy skills and try to outwit your opponents.  It is a good family game to play with the older children and makes a change from all the word games on the market.  It makes maths fun which is great for improving number confidence in school children.

The Mathable Deluxe Wooden Edition is £24.99 and available from amazon and other good stockists. There is also a Junior Mathable game for ages 5 and up which is a great introduction to playing with numbers for younger children  (RRP £14.99).  There is also a Mathable Domino (£16.99) and a Mathable Quattro (£5.99).

  2. Any game which is educational has got to be a hit with most parents. It gives their children the opportunity to enjoy a game and also to learn from it.
