Teaching fun

I teach math to middle-schoolers and this is a fun way to get them to think math. They had a blast trying it with variations.

Gave one to kids 6-10 years old and they love it; Challenging for adults who are experts at Bananagrams.

And ideal game for my daughter!

This is a Christmas present for my daughter, so I haven't actually used it yet. But my boyfriend was so excited about this game, he asked me to buy one for his daughter too! What a great idea to combine learning and fun. I can't wait to play this with my daughter. She loves dominos and math, so this is an ideal game for her.

Good product.

This product has turned learning and reinforcing basic math skills into a fun game. It's presentation in the whale pouch is inviting for young children. My only complaint is that it is a bit pricey for what it is. Similiar games like "Bananagrams" are almost half the price.

my 96 year old Mom LOVES this game

9/3/2015 by christine

I play this game with my 96 year old mother. She was a math major, and her math skills are still pretty good -- she enjoys it and I like that it is somewhat similar to Scrabble (starting off with 7 tiles) though it's easier to play since you don't have to write anything down and only need a flat surface, not a board.

I'd recommend this for anyone with an aging relative in the house -- though I imagine kids just learning math would love it, too. You know how it is when they 'get' something for the first time? I imagine kids just starting to learn math would feel very proud of themselves. Would probably also be great as a game that includes little kids AND seniors. Not many games span the generations like that.

Great!

Easy to play, with the added caveat it is not just straight math. Very good game. My 10 year old granddaughter 'got it' quickly, and the adults had fun too. Highly recommend.

Great Purchase

I purchased this for my husbands 5th grade classroom. He will use it to incentivize his students to finish their work. The benefit is the increased math proficiency they will achieve while having fun with math.

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.
