"My kids loved playing this maths game…"
I bought PLYT at our local school fair because my daughter had enjoyed playing it at school. I'd never heard of it before but it's a family game that claims to help improve maths and is endorsed by National Numeracy. There are a lot of options in the rules and their website but to be honest I didn't read all of them and it was very simple when you got into it. With many of the family games we have at home if there's any mental skill involved the same person always wins and the children never want to play - but with this game everyone plays to their own level and there's a little bit of luck involved so whilst it's about skill anyone can win - and it's quite a picture watching Dad being beaten by his children at a Maths game. It's a fairly basic looking game, without all the fancy characters and it needs a bit of concentration. But my 2 children really enjoy playing which is good enough for me - and after only a few games I can see their maths improving and even better so is mine.
