Mathable Classic

Mathable plays a lot like Scrabble® but challenges players to create mathematical equations by placing number tiles on the game board. Players take turns drawing wooden number tiles and placing them in adjacent squares (next to other numbers) on the game board. A mathematical equation is completed by adding, subtracting, multiplying or dividing two adjacent numbers, then putting a number tile with the result next to the empty square—to the right, or left, below or above the two original tiles. Yellow and purple squares allow for bonus points, while the white squares are left blank, requiring the player to formulate the equation independently without direction. For an additional challenge, blue squares are marked with specific operational signs—meaning that players are restricted to making equations that correspond to the signs on the square. The total amount of points earned per turn is the total sum of the value of all tokens placed in that turn; players continue playing tiles until they have used all 7 or are unable to form another equation. Points are calculated after each turn by adding the numbers on the tiles used and the player with the most points at the end of the game is the winner! Includes 196-square game board, 4 tile racks, 108 wood number tiles, and instructions. 2-4 players.
