Prime Climb (Math 4 Love)
A teaching tool and a genuinely enjoyable math game in one beautiful package! The board consists of color-coded spaces from 1-101. Players try to reach 101 exactly with both pawns by adding, subtracting, multiplying, and dividing. Each turn, the active player rolls 2 10-sided dice, then uses each rolled number (one at a time) to perform an operation on the space their pawn is currently on. For example, if a player has 1 pawn on "14" and rolls a 7 and an 9, the player has 6 immediate options: subtract to 7 (14 - 7 = 7) or 5, add to 21 or 23, multiply to 98, or divide to 2.
And remember the color-coding I mentioned? It works for multiplication and division! The "14" space is half-orange, half-purple. The "7" space is all purple. So, the player adds the colors together and looks for the space with 2 purple parts and 1 orange part - "98!" Likewise, if the player chose to divide "14" by "7", they would simply subtract the "purple" color and look for the all-orange space. This provides a handy shortcut for those learning or reinforcing multiplication & division. Adding a final twist are "Action" and "Keeper" cards - when a pawn ends on a prime number above 10, they draw a card. Action cards are played immediately and allow players to switch pawns, roll again, or more. Keeper cards can be played any time during a player's turn with beneficial actions or to harm their opponent. The suggested age is 10+, but the only requirement to play is basic math skills. For 2-4 players. 45-minute playtime.
Winner of numerous awards, including the 2017 National Parenting Projects Award and Tillywig Toy Brain Child Award, and many others!
