Is It Any Good?

Mathable is a great way for young math whizzes to showcase their talents. The game can't be played just by viewing the board and jumping in, on the assumption that it's just like Scrabble. Rules are too varied and complex for that. After players read through the two tutorials, game play will likely be understandable, however. Above all, it's important for kids to have a good handle on basic math facts to play this game and enjoy it. Mathable can be a fun solo- or multi-player game that can be as fast- or slow-paced as kids want it to be (one, three, or five minute turns), as long as players understand the rules and have the math skills necessary to play.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
