We love math games! Sounds kinda weird, I know, but we love to play them! We were very excited when we had the opportunity to review Sunya The Magic and Wonder of Math and Science Adding and Subtracting from Sunya Publishing. We received a game book, 2 decks of cards and a timeline.
We received the addition and subtraction edition. There is a multiplication and division set also. After having played the addition and subtraction one, I think I may get the multiplication and division set for Allie (11th grade) as a fun review game or for David (4th grade) when he is better at multiplication.
We had fun playing the card game. We did struggle a little with the directions, but once we understood it, the game set up and played very quickly. It is a nice game to fit in some math review in a short amount of time and have fun doing it. We are
a little competitive here so a quick 2 out of 3 game happened often. No homeschooling mom would say no to a math game, right?
Sunya- The Magic and Wonder of Math and Science Adding and Subtracting is recommended for ages 7 and up. We have played with parents, a 17 year old and a 10 year old. We all enjoyed the game and the challenge is gave us.
Each player starts out with 4 cards. Cards are placed face up so players can help each other if needed. Along with the discard pile there is a card with either an addition or subtraction sign and one with an equals sign. Each player takes turns picking a card from the discard pile then making an addition or subtraction sentence. If you can not make a math problem with the cards already down and/or the cards in your hand, you continue to pick from the discard pile until you can. This make the game interesting because the object of the game is to be the first one out of cards. The winner of each hand gets to read a math and science riddle card to the other players.
The game book includes directions to other game variations. It also explains where the name Sunya comes from. It’s a Sanskrit word for empty. I think it’s a great name for it since the object of both games is to have no cards in your hand.
Please be patient with this new company. Games will be available soon so check back often.
