Morph the most discs to win! Move the ball from disc to disc, but only change one attribute at a time, whether it is the color, the pattern, or the size of the center circle. Each player’s turn continues, collecting the discs as they go, until there are no more possibilities on the board. And with 60 discs in the game…

In this bus-themed board game, children practice counting, addition, and subtraction skills. The objective of the game is to drive your double-decker bus through “town”, or around the game board, trying to pick up as many passengers as you can. However, there is some strategy involved…

In this counting board game, children pick pretend fruit from trees on the board to fill up their buckets. With each turn, the player spins the spinner, which tells them how many pieces of fruit to pick or to put back, giving them practice with counting up, but also serving as an introduction to subtraction, or “taking away”. The first to fill their basket …

In the award-winning counting board game, Count Your Chickens, players work cooperatively to help Mother Hen bring her chicks back to the coop. Each player spins the spinner, counts out that number of spaces on the board, and then collects that same number of baby chicks…

Sushi Go Party! is a fun, speedy game with some really adorable artwork. Plus, it comes in a cute “bento box” tin—so clever! In this fast-paced, pick-and-pass game, you earn points by picking winning sushi combinations. You must grab cards you need as they quickly go by…

And with three levels of play, this game is great for multiple age levels. Players can opt to play with only the paper bills (level 1), only the coins (level 2), or both bills and coins (level 3)…

In Blokus, players take turns placing their pieces on the board (in red, blue, green, and yellow), but each piece must touch another of the same color, only at the corners. Players must try to place as many of their own pieces on the board as possible while also strategically blocking their opponents…

This suspenseful card game helps to teach both addition skills and strategy, and is fun to play for children and adults alike.

Players are dealt four cards face down, but you can take an initial peek at two of the cards…

Uno

A classic card game! Players race to be the first to get rid of all their cards by matching numbers or colors. Players take turns getting rid of their cards, but the game can easily change with various action cards, like reversing the direction of play or a ‘draw four’ card that forces another player to draw four cards (perfect for when they are just about to get rid of the rest of their cards!)…

This number bingo game helps kids develop their counting and addition skills, as well as number sense and number word recognition. Players must match number tiles to images on their cards, and the first player with a full card wins by yelling out, “Zingo!” Adding extra fun is sliding the zinger to get your next number to match…
