Parents need to know that 24 Game - Single Digits is a competitive card game that allows kids to practice manipulating single digit numbers. On each level, kids add, subtract, multiply, and/or divide the four numbers to return an answer of 24. This can be done by either tapping an operator and then tapping the two numbers to use with it, or by tapping the first number, dragging a finger to the second number, and then tapping the operator. Those numbers are then combined and kids work with the result along with the remaining numbers. After eight levels that gradually increase in difficulty, the elapsed time for that round is recorded. The game can be challenging at first, but after several play throughs, strategies will most likely emerge. Many schools hold "24" competitions and this app provides a digital way to play this popular learning game.
Is it any good?

If you are already familiar with the card game, then the lack of instructions won't be a problem, and this app provides a way to practice the competitive cards.
