TOS Review/ I See Cards - PYRAMATH




I See Cards is a company that offers educational card games.
They offer three different math card games. Pyramath, Fractazmic, and  Prime Bomb.
The one I received to try out was Pyramath.
Oh, this game is such fun!
My 13 year old daughter and I love to play this together.
This game reinforces basic math skills: Addition, Subtraction, Multiplication, and Division.
This is such a fun and awesome way to practice, and keep up your kids math skills!
This game can be played solitaire style, or 2 person.
The Pyramath card game contains  54 cards with 10 numbered card designs with the numbers displayed in English, Spanish, Roman Numerals, Chinese, Arabic, and French!
This game has several variations, so you will not get bored playing this game.
There is the basic 2 player game where each player takes turns flipping over a card to see if they can play it on their side of the pyramid. You go until you can't play anymore.
Then the next player does the same, and the first to build their pyramid, wins!

Another variation of this game is Pyramath Speed. This game is similar to the first, except that you both play at the same time, and whoever builds their pyramid first, wins.


You can also play this game Solitaire style, or war style.
If you have younger children who only know addition, or maybe addition or subtraction, you can still use this game.
It will grow with your child from addition to Division, and then you can practice all 4 math skills at once.
I think anywhere from the ages of 5-6, all the way through adult, can play this game, and it is fun!
My five year old didn't quite get the concept, but my 13 year old really enjoyed it.
We still play this game often. 
It really helps children recall their math facts, but it is not boring to them, and they actually want to play this math game!
I really recommend this game, and based on this game, I would definitely get the other math games that they offer.
They look like fun to me!
One deck of  I See Cards is only $6.95!

Martin Luther: b. 1483-1546: "I am very much afraid that schools will prove to be the great gates of hell unless they diligently labor in explaining the Holy Scriptures, engraving them in the hearts of youth. I advise no one to place his child where the Scriptures do not reign paramount. Every institution in which men are not increasingly occupied with the Word of God must become corrupt."
