Muggins / Knock-Out Game (Revised 1/4" Thin)
My first impression of this game brought back memories from childhood of playing Aggravation with my grandmother. It was always fun to roll the number that would move my marble to knock Grandma’s off the board! This educational two-in-one game board offers the same sort of fun, while helping players practice math and critical thinking skills. Two sets of three dice are included. One set is 6 sided, and the other is 12. This allows for people of different skill levels to play and practice mental math. The flat sided marbles come packaged in four different colors. The ¼ “thin game board has a game printed on each side. All these items are packaged in a sturdy box with detailed instructions for each game.

This well thought-out math game really encourages players to use what they've learned - and quickly! Fast-paced and brain-stretching, it uses all basic arithmetic operations and requires the use of strategic thinking and mental math skills. The game is for 1-4 players and requires players to occupy as many number spaces as possible while blocking their opponents' attempts to do the same. After rolling 3 dice (6-sided or 12-sided, depending on the level of play), players try to claim an unoccupied numbered space. To do this, they must form an equation (using any combination of basic arithmetic operations) with those three numbers with an answer equal to the number shown on an unclaimed space. A few extra rules like "bumping" and "bluffing" provide additional complexity to the game and allow for more challenging play.
