My family loves playing games when we get together for holidays, so this was very well received because just about everyone could play

Enjoyed this a lot. Gave a different group from the bananagramers a chance to excel.

clever game

Bought this as Christmas gift for a 2nd grade granddaughter, so don't know her response yet. It looks good to me, though, for the most simple math this year and a little more challenging next.

Wish it had more tiles, but we enjoyed it!

My 7 year old grandson and I play Mobi to practice addition and subtraction. Some of the rules aren’t very clear so we made our own rules. My disappointment is that there are so few number tiles. We wouldn’t have played very long with more than the two of us!

fun game to play with family

After Christmas dinner is over, my family plays board games. I was happy to introduce a new game that used math skills. It's fast moving and fun for all ages.

No zero!

I thought this would be a perfect item to help my grandson learn math. He has trouble with writing but likes moving things around with his hands, so it seemed like the perfect solution for math homework. I figured after he masters third grade math we can add this to our family game time for continued reinforcement.

It's a beautifully constructed set with plenty of tiles of the function symbols and numbers 1 through 12. If double digits beyond 12 are needed, the instructions show simply putting two tiles together. Perfect. Except there are NO tiles with ZERO on them. I discovered it when we were doing math and he was supposed to solve "5 x 6 =" and there was no way for him to display the correct answer. I've since robbed my Scrabble game of all the O tiles, but I'd prefer if Mobi had its own zero tiles included.

If you are only going to use this game as it was intended, as a specific game of numbers, then this is perfect. Just know that if you have the idea it can be used to teach simple math in other ways, you'll run into situations where a zero is needed and you need to come up with a makeshift fix. I would definitely recommend this game to a friend if it's to be used for what it was made, just with the caveat that if it's going to be used outside of game play it's got limitations..

If there were a few "zero" tiles, I would rate it a 5+.

Fun Game

This was a fun game but we found it took some time to get the players on board and how to do it. Once there, they were hooked. Thanks.

The Möbi Story

Math lovers (and haters) unite!

Calculated Fun

Möbi is a fun, fast-paced number tile game. The goal is to make simple math equations as quickly as possible—a great way for kids or grown-ups to apply math skills. Plus, it comes in an adorable blue whale.

Players draw blue number tiles, then use them to create simple equations (like 2+3=5) by including white math tiles (plus signs, minus signs, multiplication signs, etc.). Each valid equation is called a “pod.” Keep using your blue tiles to build new equations on those pods, almost like a crossword.

The first one to use all their blue tiles yells “Möbi” to win. Wild card tiles and a few
other creative rules make this a great family game. Want to play with younger kids? Just remove the multiplication and division tiles.

With no scores to calculate or paper or pencils, all you need to play Möbi is a flat surface. It’s a great travel, beach, or picnic game. And it can help kids with hand-eye coordination, cooperative play, and automaticity, which is the ability to apply learning automatically without actively thinking about it.

Wife-husband creators Vanessa and Mark Ellingson like classic word games (Scrabble, Bananagrams) that disguise learning as play. They wanted to invent a game their son, Noah, would stay interested in as he grows up.

Whether or not you think you love math, you’re bound to love Möbi.
