Great idea

I purchased this for my 6-year-old grandson in NYC and his mom is saving this for future use, so his opinion is to come and I will post his review when received. My opinion is that this Grommet idea is brilliant! I cannot wait to enjoy playing this game when I visit!


Enhancing Student Learning

This game is excellent! I bought it for my second grade classroom to enhance my stronger math students however what actually ended up happening was my entire class loves it. All of my students play on their level and still enjoy the game and learn. Outstanding choice I am beginning to teach my students two digit multiplication times one digit just because they want to learn it to win.


Truly Genious

The makers of this game are geniuses. You can tell that a lot of time, energy, and effort was put into this game to make if fun and simple. I bought for my 10 year old that struggles in math. He beat me and my wife the first two times we played. It's a lot simpler than it looks. This is a great game.

Bought this to play with my granddaughter who is struggling with math. We both enjoy playing this game and she's learning as we play.

Very cool game that shows the relationship between numbers. Some of my friends love it, some hate it. I think it's great.

Math Skills Made Fun

Link colors to numbers to fun in a math board game that’s addicting and stealthy. Prime Climb makes you exercise math skills while you’re distracted at play.

Married mathematicians Daniel Finkel and Katherine Cook are the architects, creating a new take on doing equations. After training teachers for many years, they turned their attention to designing a visual, intuitive game to help kids become fluent in math. Much like learning a language, getting the key concepts down while you’re young can help them take root.

To play, you roll two ten-sided dice—then you use operations to decide how many
spaces you can move. Add the two numbers or subtract, multiply, or divide them, depending on which total will give you the best turn. Climb your way up to 101—gaining special powers and bumping opponents back to the start along the way.

When we played the game, our teenage kids even asked to play it again. That’s right—teens asking to play a math game with their parents. There’s no greater endorsement than that.
