    I downloaded it for my son a while back because he was looking for math games. We haven't really started multiplication but he enjoyed the free version. Will consider buying the full version once we're at that level. It's nice to see an educational game with really good graphics for a change!

    I totally agree about that graphics. I think my DD also likes it because it is different from other games in that it isn't strictly quizzing you on the facts. It has the addition of the graphic manipulatives-if you will- that facilitate the process of visualizing and solving the problem!

    I can't wait to check this out! I've declared Fridays as math game day to help ease the repetitiveness of MM worksheets (more boring for me than for him, but still) and this seems perfect. DS, for whatever reason, LOVES multiplication and is really rocking the times tables, but the more ways of making it stick the better, IMO. Thanks for the link!

    My youngest really wanted to try it and daddy ponied up for the full version (i have no idea why) but of course he got frustrated quickly - he was 6 at the time. I tried it with my older one, but he kept breaking down in tears and saying it made him afraid . . . yeah, bipolar and math anxiety and timed games dont mix well, I guess. I expect I'll use it again w Raven next year.

    Oh Cara

    I thought that the monster was a little scary too but my daughter thought it was ok! In the end you end up defeating him! My kids generally don't like timed games either but there is something about this game that has drawn them in. I am sure she'll be putting forward a case this evening for the full version. She was just saying how she really wanted to play in some of the other environments.

    Do I have a gamer in the making???

    The ogre didnt scare him, really. He just has wicked math anxiety. Thats why I have to sit with him through every single problem most days, murmerring encouragingly . .. yeah to a 14 yo boy. I try not to think about it from any perspective other than "this is what we are doing today!" if that makes any sense. Try hard not to picture what other boys his age are doing . . .

    We downloaded the free version years ago for Dea & Jay has been enjoying using it this last few months. To be honest, we never thought about buying the full version when Dea was using it. She mastered multiplication so quickly, we didn't see the point. I might buy it for Jay, though. He's doing great at multiplication, but it might be nice to have a game he enjoys, for practice next year. Then again, if he'll only be using it as extra practice for one more year, it would make more economic sense to just continue with the free version. I guess I'll see how he's doing at the end of the school year & decide then. It's really too bad there aren't more fun Math games like this one. Maybe Dea wouldn't hate Math so much if she'd had games like this for other Maht concepts as well.

    WE have used it for over a year and my boys love it. I am buying the full version this week so that they can play new levels, it really has helped my oldest (right brainer) to get his facts down! I just wish that they had one for FRACTIONS LOL
