Race To Infinity is an educational mathematics board games that is suitable for aged 7 and above. This is for two to four players. Inside this box, it comes with a game board, credit tokens, 32 luck cards, four playing pieces and two 12-sided dice.
The objective of this game is use your maths skills to outsmart your opponent by collecting 200 credits token and then racing to the Infinity to win the game. On the board, there is a circle path and three paths towards that go towards the centre for Infinity. Before you can move towards the centre, you need to move around the circle path to collect enough credit.
To start the game, everyone will start at the red Zero space. Then take turns to roll the dice and you can either add, subtract, multiply or divide their values to decide how many spaces to move. Ms C has just learnt the 4 times table and she struggled at multiplication. With some adult help, she was able to plan her move carefully. Mr K is more confident in his maths and he has no problem calculating the right moves.
There are three different types of squares, you can land on. If it is a silver star space, you will have to pick a luck card and follow the instructions. If you land on a circle blue space, you will be able to collect credit token. If you landed on the odd/even space, you get to roll again and your final number determines your direction. You can choose to vary how you play the game to make it more easy or difficult by setting up the game differently.
Overall, this game can be quite challenging and great for children to exercise their maths skills. We find it easier to play the game with the same age group children than a mixed age group due to their maths skills. Luckily maths one of the favourite subjects for both children and this is a good game for them to practise! Check out Easy Maths Skill to find out more about the game.
