Description

Math For Grabs is a lasercut math game for all ages.

Use Tetris-shaped clear acrylic markers to claim mathematical equations and earn points in this dynamic, multi-player mathematical board game.
For two to four players (or solitaire) from ages 6+.

Lasercut Components:
• 90 number tiles, approximately 1-inch square
• 13 Tetris-shaped acrylic markers
• game board of size 6x 6 inches.

Use Tetris-shaped clear acrylic markers to claim mathematical equations and earn points in this dynamic, multi-player math game. For two to four players (or solitaire) from ages 6+.

Lasercut Components:
• 100 number tiles
• 16 Tetris-shaped acrylic markers
• game board.

GOAL: Find numbers that match equations. Score with the answer.

SETUP: Fill the game board with 36 random numbers. Place the acrylic markers between the players. Scatter the number tiles face up as a draw pile. Randomly flip ten number tiles face down in a reserve pile for future exchange.

GAME PLAY: Playing at the same time, players attempt to claim numbers on the game board that make up a mathematical equation. An equation consists of two or more adjacent numbers on the board and a single tile (in the draw pile) that is the answer for the equation. Three or more numbers in the equation must be used in order. For example, if [12] [3] [2] are selected for the equation 12x3-4, the answer tile [30] must be grabbed from the draw pile.

Using the acrylic markers, highlight the numbers and grab the answer tile from the draw pile. Keep the answer for scoring.

Order of play:

• Grab an acrylic marker
• Place onto the numbers for your equation
• Call out your equation
• Grab the answer tile and keep it.


BUYING A MARKER: An acrylic marker already on the board must stay in place. Eventually, a marker is necessary to form an equation. Players are allowed to “buy” a missing marker for immediate use with a new equation. In this case, the player’s lowest-valued tile is returned to the pile. At least one number tile beneath the marker must be replaced by one of the numbers from the reserve pile. The shape can then used played by that player to form an equation.

SCORING: When the reserve pile is depleted, score the players kept tiles and start over again with a fresh board setup.

Alternative Scoring: If the answer tile is not available, use two numbers that add up to the answer. For example, if your equation is 8 x 3 and 24 is not available, you could grab the 20 and 4 tiles.

STRATEGY: Look for clusters of numbers that will score the highest answers.

EQUATIONS: Two or more number tiles on the board can be combined into an equation. The answer to the equation must be found in the draw pile.

SOLITAIRE PLAY: Grab ten tiles as answer tiles and attempt to form ten equations that match those answers. As each set of numbers is marked with the acrylic tiles, place the answer on to of each acrylic tile.

I thought this would be great (fairly easy) for my 93 year old, bedridden mom and tried it upon arrival, after a few hours I had to look up a hint to get started so these are serious puzzles for serious puzzlers(IMHO). I should've ordered the magnetic variety to avoid pieces getting lost in the bedding when they get knocked off the bed tray table. The way the puzzles are made appeals to the senses, they feel good and they sound good- no plastics clicking together kind of thing and look good. I'm ordering the symbols one next.

I love it! It's for my wedding guestbook. The guests will sign around our picture. Mark got back to me right away when I had questions. He worked with me on the changes I had. Great experience. It's exactly what I envisioned and more. Thanks Mark! Dawn

Great communication. The product was exactly as offered and more. He included a few dozen extra pieces (free of charge) because that’s the what the cutting left over. He even made a custom size for my request. Bang on. Would not hesitate to place another order here.
