I bought this for my two children to share last year, as I really wanted to help them learn their times table but make it a little more fun, I mean lets face it who liked to do maths when they were younger.
When I saw this for £5 I thought this could work and make my kids enjoy learning at the same time. The game is just like normal snap but with a twist. Instead of matching cards they had to match the sums, for example if one of them turned over 3x2 they would have to match it with a 6 to be able to win snap.
The pack comes with the standard 52 cards all been a mixture of multiplication questions and their answers, the cards are also pretty thick so even now with the kids using them so much none of the cards have become damaged.
The game states its for one player and up from the age of 7 years old, mine were 8 then so they were just about right for them.
If they wanted to play one player then obviously you can not play snap just by yourself but you can lay the cards out and play match it, where they have to match the sum and the answer. To be honest mine never bothered with the 1 player game as they would have got bored playing it alone.
I found that when my kids played this, I am not going to say it was a miracle game that improved them straight away, and they did struggle sometimes at first but then they started to get better at their times table and they did improve. They do seem to get more competative now and want to prove they are better than each other lol.
I think this was a really good buy because they do seem to have improved, and I also sometimes sort out the cards and just get the sums out and ask them what the answer is to try to learn them even better. They do now do their times table really well and I think it was £5 well spent on my children's education. I would recommend these to anyone who would like to learn their kids in a quicker and more fun way to learn. Its about the only time my kids have not moaned about doing maths.
