Can anyone recommend any board games or android apps to help with times table practise for a year 7?

Ds teacher has noticed his recall is hit and miss and feels he would benefit from practise, but hes reluctant to do worksheets etc.

I was looking at board games but a lot of them seem to be aimed at infant age group.

Second powerof2 - this is "standard issue" in our school - in Year 4 though. Have to do it daily and mark in the prep diary. Also, Timez Attack worked brilliantly for us (recommended on this site) - it has time pressure which is good for building instant recall. May be, it's a bit babyish at this stage, but I don't think board games would work because there is no time pressure there.

I use an app with year 7 called "invasion of the moon monkeys" or something very similar which goes down very well.
