We love doing math with games, in fact - we love doing all school with games. Maybe, we should just shelve the books and pull out the games...
Well, that's exactly what happened when the Bentz Test Laboratory got their hands on another great game from I See Cards (read about our last test here).
Here's a description from them:
"When children play Fractazmic, they know they're having fun, and you know that they're learning!
When children play Fractazmic, they know they're having fun, and you know that they're learning! Fractazmic is a comprehensive interactive fun lesson in fractions that gives your child unlimited practice at their individual level.
Each brightly colored card displays fractions, along with eye catching graphics, to ensure reinforcement. Players will quickly identify the fractions on their cards and calculate their way to fun and learning! Fractazmic teaches fractions, numbers and measurement."
You can get them online for just $6.95 - a perfect stocking stuffer!
My testers quickly picked up how to play very quickly. Here's a quick summary of how to play from the website:
"Fractazmic is a 2-4 player game that uses math and language skills. The object of Fractazmic trap is to gather as many hands as possible before the first player runs out of cards. Hands are captured by either (1) playing a card that brings the sum of all cards thrown to 1 or (2) forcing the next player to throw a card that brings the sum to greater than 1. If any of these events occur – the player captures the round and is the first to start the next round."
What I liked best - all of my testers enjoyed playing. Some of them are math-challenged (like their mom) and some are math super-stars - but, Fractazmic was fun for all of them!
If you want to play it online - check this out and win!
