I'd give this game two and a half stars Great appeal for boys in particular (though there are plenty of superhero women in the card deck too!) The artwork and superhero names are quirky and fun and the challenge of capturing villians nicely obscures the fact that the child is doing math :-) There are two levels at which the game may be played We have not yet tried the advanced level (more on that in a moment)At the basic level the goal is to capture villians by creating superhero/device combinations which add up to numbers from 3-26 Frankly repeated adding of 1s 2s 3s and 4s is not very challenging even with the odd +5 +10 or +15 of a device There is a little strategic thinking involved (the 16 villian is gone; how can I create a superhero that can capture the 17 villain instead?)At the advanced "superhero" level negative numbers come into play and I gather some multiplication Unfortunately I cannot tell because the instructions do not explain how to use these added features The instruction sheet says "Superhero Level brings in negative numbers addition of negative numbers and multiplication of both positive and negative numbers as well as Zero " but nowhere does it explain how I can infer how it might work but there's no clear explanation on the instruction sheetOnce my son is ready for multiplication I guess I'll do a web search for additional instructions (or make up my own rules)
