We LOVE games!
What we LOVE even more are games that teach and entertain and the same time.
What we LOVE even more than that are games that teach MATH and entertain at the same time.
Yes, it’s no surprise that we LOVE Fractazmic by I See Cards. When I found out we would be receiving it from the TOS Homeschool Crew I was quite excited because we’d reviewed Pyramath from the same company last year and it ended up becoming a family favorite.
Fractazmic is a basic card game where you try to make “hands” that equal one (1) by adding fractions of the same suit (there are 3 suits). Player take turns drawing cards from the deck or the discard pile and trying to make hands. The player with the most hands when someone runs out of cards in the winner.
This game is simple to play, yet it can be challenging. I’ll admit that I ended up using the picture aids from time to time when playing with my son. I’m not so good at mental math and usually have to write things down because I have a hard time keep track of numbers. My son (8), on the other hand, didn’t have any issues with this after he played a few times. He learned how to play with his grandfather (a lovely way to spend an afternoon) so he was a real pro when it came time to play with Mum. We haven’t played with more than two players but I think that it would make it more challenging and worry that there may be some issues using all the cards in our hands with more players but I’d don’t know for sure. You may want to check out more TOS Homeschool Crew reviews to see what other members are saying about games with more players.
For 6.95$Us this game can be fun for the whole family (and did you know you can win FREE packs online by playing the online version?). The younger members can join in by using the picture clues on the card to play or you could help them by making a conversions chart for them and it is still somewhat challenging (or just a good review) for older family members, too. I’m sure that this will be a game that we will pull out frequently when we are looking for something a little different to do for math. I invite you to check out their website to find out more about this game, learn about other card games the company sells to make math fun (Pyramath, Prime Bomb, etc.), or play an online game of Fractazmic.
