ZooBooKoo’s Dice Games range is a simple but effective game to help kids improve their mental maths. Each game has three dice, two with numbers and the third with maths functions (add, subtract and multiply) and three rewards (either Dinosaurs, Dudes or Cup Cakes). Each player rolls the dice and does their sum. Whoever gets the highest score in the round wins the reward. You have to win all three rewards to win the game. But watch out – one of the dice also has the word ‘Aaahhh!’ – and if you throw ‘Aaahhh! you don’t score in that round! There are three different skill levels for ages 4+, 6+ and 9+ years. There is also a spelling version of the game.
These games are great fun and children want to play again and again, practising their sums all the time. Moreover, because of the element of chance, it is a great game for all the family and valuable braining training for us ‘big kids’ too.
