Board Games Aren't Boring!

As a kid I loved board games and I have to admit, I still enjoy playing a game or two. I also love using games to teach math so somewhere along the way I combined these loves and started making math board games.
I discovered that the kids loved it and they became much faster at recalling math facts or calculating math.
It was also great to hear them begging to play particular games. I also found that they were great as a bribe - 'If you get this done quickly and do a job, you can play a game.' Well it does work!
I have made loads and loads of games and love dreaming up more. My main criteria for a game is that it is simple to prepare and simple to learn to play. You can try it for yourself with these!
Here are few of my freebies on TPT.

I also have collections for addition, subtraction, multiplication and division facts.
You find them at my TPT store.

So why not give some board games a go!
