The objective of the game is to get every one of your six fish tokens from the starting line of your score pad to the 10 line first.
Players take turns using their fish stix cards, which are similar to dominoes, to match the fish stixs already played on the table. A player gets to move their fish by matching it (including the direction it's swimming) to other cards.
In this math game for kids, players race around the board with the goal of being the first one to reach the island.
To play, each player receives 5 cards that go face up for all the opponents to see. All the remaining cards stay face down in a pile.
On each turn, a child flips over the top card of the community pile and players race to figure out which card they own that will add up with the newly flipped card to equal 10. The first player to say "10" out loud and grab the community card gets to move one space closer to the island.
Play continues this way, but watch out for the special shark and octopus cards! These cards make players switch their personal cards with others and allow stealing too.
One great feature of this game is the two different levels of play. Once your children are able to add two cards to make ten, they are ready to move up to add as many cards as they need to in order to reach ten.
On your kids' journey to the other side of the swamp, they'll learn the number of spaces to travel by rolling the three dice. Two of the dice are numbers and the third die has addition and subtraction math symbols on it.
Each turn, your child will roll the dice and figure out the total number of spaces they travel by completing the simple math equation.
Along the way, kids will run into special spaces on the board that have particular objectives to allow the game a little more variety.
This game earns a whopping 4.8 out of 5-star rating!
The classic numbers game Rummikub has to make the list of best math board games for kids! This game is not just about numbers, but also about strategy.
In this game, players try to get rid of all 14 of their number tiles first by creating sets of either runs (ex: 1,2,3) or groups (ex: 4's of each color).
Playing the game consists of playing off of your own and opponent's sets that are on the table. There are several different ways to build onto sets including splitting runs, combined splits, multiple splits, adding to runs and creating new groups.
The Ladybug Game is a board game for the earliest of kids learning math. This game is rated for ages 3 and up. In the game, players race to get their ladybug from the start position to the home position first.
To play, kids draw from a pile of ladybug cards that tells them how many spaces to move forward or backward. Hidden amongst the cards are also aphid cards and praying mantis passes that players must collect.
The board features big spaces that are great for young players. It also has special spaces on the board where ladybugs need to use their aphid cards in order to progress towards the home space.
Math Dice Jr. is a highly rated dice game that works on addition and subtraction. In this game, players roll a 12-sided die and five 6-sided dice. The 12 sided die is the "target die" and has the numbers 1-12 on each side. The 6-sided dice have the numbers 1-6 on each side.
To play, the youngest player rolls all the dice. Then, each player looks at the target die (the 12-sided one) to see what number they are adding or subtracting to reach. Using the 5 standard dice, players try to come up with addition or subtraction facts that equal the target die's value.
The first player to discover a math fact that adds up to the target die, yells "Math Dice" and collects the dice involved. The round continues until all possible combinations are found. Each player gets to move one space for each die they collect.
If you're not playing with others who are on the same mathematical level (like parents and kids), there's also a cooperative version you can play.
It's nice to playing puzzle and math games for kids. these games help for sharp the mind. I like these all games and i will share these ideas with my groups. I am sure this article is very interesting and informative for your users. Good job!

Summoku is a great math game too! (age 8+)
Set is also great! (age 6+) It is not numbers, but thinking in terms of grouping shapes, colors, numbers or shading.
