  1. Gail K.

    We have lottsa Grandkids and it was such a family game because the older kids helped the little ones. Great bonding session for such a quick game.

  2. Jeanette Geldenhuys

    Bought this for my 6year old grandson and he loves the game. Only does adding and deduction but will get to the rest soon,

    This is a fun way to practice adding and subtracting. My 6 year old granddaughter loves playing this and it has really helped sharpen her basic math skills. I highly recommend!

    This set will be a great study aide for learning basic math. Still waiting for the kids to try it out. Hope it will be fun too. Wish the instruction booklet was larger.

    My 6.5 year old loves this game and has for about 6 months. It is easy to play, doesn’t take any special equipment beyond what it comes with, and is fun. The goal is to use addition and subtraction to sum up the numbers on 5 colored dice to get to a target number, and you get to move your game piece one space for every die you successfully use in a round, so it’s advantageous to use as many as possible. The trick is that you have to do the math in your head quickly and then yell “math dice” first–only that person gets to show the combo they came up with. The first player to move their game piece around the given board wins. (The board is very tiny–we usually end up going around 2-3 times per game.) When we play with our son, though, my husband and I have to basically hold back to give my son a chance, because obviously a grownup can add a lot faster than a 6 year old. Still, we are able to jump in just enough to push him and get him thinking faster and in a more complex way, which is the best part of this game. For instance, in the months we’ve had this, he’s figured out how to do more complex strings using both addition and subtraction to maximize the number of dice used (e.g., 3+4+2-1=8 to use 4 dice instead of 3+4+1=8 to only use 3 dice). You don’t have to do things that complicated (you could start out with only addition, for instance), but that’s part of the strategy and what makes it a game more than just math drills. I think what ages this is for really depends on the child. My son is pretty fast at adding and subtracting, and he can do much of it in his head. I know he’s played with other 6 year old friends and they struggled quite a bit. So you kind of have to know your kid. Can your kid add and subtract numbers totaling up to 12? Can they add/subtract more than one number in a row (e.g., 2+2+3)? And can they do it in their head? They don’t necessarily have to do those thing super well yet, but they do need to be able to do them a little. Also think about who the child will play with–it’s best if they can play with kids at a similar math skill level so one person doesn’t dominate.I do like that Math Dice Jr encourages my son to think about math, but apart from that it’s just a fun, simple game that doesn’t take too long to play. It’s a winner for us!

    Seriously, I cannot think of a worse title for a game and honestly it has been a deal breaker for us. Maybe “super dice,” or “cool cubes”….or just about anything that doesn’t have “Math” in the title! I bought this as a stocking stuffer for my 7 year old who is struggling to grasp basic math concepts. He has shown interest in an adult dice game, and I thought this would really appeal to him with its big bright colorful dice. When he opened it on Christmas morning and saw the name, he immediately tossed it aside and said, “Oh….I guess Santa wants me to do math.” LOL! I hesitated on writing this review because I cannot for the life on me get him to play this game**(please see update), but I promise to update it when and if I do actually get him to try it! I think I may just give it to his teacher who runs an after-school academic program and see if she has any luck. It sat around for a month and a half before I decided to open it myself and see what it looked and felt like, and realized afterward that you really need two or more children who are at the same level to play this game effectively(all the more reason to give this one to the school). I don’t really see how anyone at home is playing this successfully with children of different skill levels, but maybe I’m missing something. The dice feel really good, and are indeed big and bright, and it comes in a neat little bag with a play mat. So far, the only play this has gotten was by my two year old who likes putting the dice in the bag and dumping them out over and over. I think this game is best suited in an educational environment where children are expecting to have to learn. The title really gives this one away, and I think there are better and more fun learning games out there that are not so obvious. We really like the Busytown card game

    I bought this for my 5 year old son that is math curious. He loves rolling the dice and counting the dots to learn addition. His older brother plays with him to practice his multiplication at the same time. Great way to learn math without the stress.

    Nice educational gameWe have played a few different games on this and made a few of our own up. Good for little hands to use. Packs away in a little carry case so easily portable.

    Great, but…I love the size and the quality is also not too bad.One thing that was annoying (which is probably somewhere in the description) is that there are only 3 normal dice in this set. 2 others are weird: only have double 1, 2 and 3 sides (no 4, 5, 6). It seems to be a part of a crappy game on a sheet of rag that comes with them, but… WHY! I would gladly pay the same for 5 normal dice.The size is good, though. Even for a toddler, as they are too big to be swallowed.
