NUMO GAME OF NUMBER SKILLS IN A FANTASY WORLD DETAILS
Numo is a fabulous card game for kids and adults of varying ages. You can change the gameplay slightly to match the skill level of the participants.
Number and Maths is at the heart of this game. Using the cards provided you have to lay cards according to specific equations (addition, substration, division or multiplication are just a few). When someone has laid all their cards down the round ends. Points are tallyed and accumulated over multiple rounds. The instructions say its the first to 500, but really any value can be used here depending on time.
The artwork by Krista Brennan is also stunning and provides a decent distraction whilst playing.
Learning is fun, and Numo is a great example of this. My kids loved the game and were back for more the following night.
This game was created by John Kinny-Lewis who lives locally in Gordon, Sydney Australia!
Well worth it and highly recommended from me.

Awesomely fun strategy game
At first the rules seemed tricky but in 15 minutes we were up and playing. From six and a half years old through to adults, we all loved it. It is a rummy style strategy game and is incredibly adaptable to the mathematical level of the child playing. For example, for my six year old we just played using seasons, characters and addition to make groups or melds, and only used the lower deck (numbers up to 29). But for a highschool child, gifted child younger child or just adults you could play using the upper deck as well (number cards up to 144) and make melds using prime numbers and factors as well as addition and subtraction. The art work really is beautiful and so appealing to children. I bought this for my own children but as a teacher I would use this from Kindergarten right through to early high school. Excellent for learning seasons, counting sequences, adding numbers to 10, practising multiplication facts, learning about factors, prime numbers etc. Excellent for children who love strategy games. Bad for parents whose children are good at strategy games as they may beat you (even your six year old)!
