Numenko

Maker - Tom Lennett

Maker Story

Have ‘Sum’ Fun

Want to add some math fun to your next game night? Numenko is the answer. It’s the brainchild of Tom Lennett, a former barber from Glasgow, Scotland, who went searching for a game to help his daughter strengthen her math skills. When he couldn’t find one like he envisioned, he created Numenko, and launched it in the U.K. (it's now available exclusively from Daily Grommet in the U.S.)

Numenko is played crossword style, like Scrabble, but with number tiles instead of letters. Players use the tiles, and the key multi-choice piece which morphs as needed, to create equations using addition, subtraction, multiplication or division. There are two different versions. In the board game, players take turns making number sentences and can build off tiles already played by opponents. The goal of the board game is to get the highest score, which is tallied from each equation played.

In the travel version, players work independently to build their own equations, and they compete to use all of their allotted tiles the fastest. In both games, multi-choice and free-choice tiles keep play moving fast. It adds up to a great time, plus it’s educational. We give it an A+.
