Sunya Multiplying & Dividing Review #hsreviews

Math and Science {Sunya Publishing Review}

We get to review a lot of product in our home and school. Sometimes they are new, some have been around for awhile, and sometimes they have been updated. We have been playing a brand new game from Sunya Publishing. Sunya - The Magic and Wonder of Math and Science Multiplying & Dividing

We love card games at our house and my girls like when we have new learning games because I let them play just about any time they want to. That's what has been going on at our house the last few weeks with the new game of multiplication and division from Sunya. We received two decks of cards, a spiral bound instruction guide, and number line. This game is recommended for ages 9-adult for 1-5 players. 

The 25 page book is spiral bound and includes the game rules for a few different types of play, meaning of the word Sunya, history of the Hindu Arabic Numeral System, history of the Brahmi Numerals, a small glossary, parts of a number sentence, and famous math quotes.

One deck of 60 cards has numbers from 0-9 including two wild cards and a card with the multiplication symbol, the division symbol, and the equal sign. The other deck of 30 cards contains math & science facts and riddles. The number line is 8 1/2" long and 3" tall and has instructions printed directly on it. 
All three of my girls and myself played this new game. The winner of the game is the first person to get rid of the cards in their hand, therefore being "Sunya", while making correct math sentences. Before starting the game you will choose if you want to play multiplication or division. The dealer makes a correct math sentence on the table. Each player is dealt four cards to keep in their hand and the remainder of the cards are placed in a draw pile. Starting at the dealers left that player will use their cards to make another correct math sentence by placing their cards on top of the cards that were already played. If the player cannot make a sentence they will draw from the draw pile until they can make a correct math sentence. When someone is out of cards they must announce they are "Sunya". If they fail to say it and someone catches them they must draw a new card and they are still in the game. 

The winner of the game gets to choose a math & science fact and riddle card from the pile and reads it to the other players. The winner can also give clues to help the players out if need be. If the winner would rather not choose a fact & riddle card they can ask a question about the information from the history of Sunya or the glossary.

The math & science facts and riddle cards are so much fun. We love trying to solve riddles and everyone loves when they have one that stumps the rest of the family. It was so hard not to read all of them before we played the game. Some of the riddles were pretty simple and we all knew the answer right away and some of them are pretty hard to figure out. 

Sunya - The Magic and Wonder of Math and Science Multiplying & Dividing is such a new game that the publisher is asking our opinion about the instruction booklet being printed in color or black and white. The one we received is in black and white with a couple pages printed in color. Of course the colored pages are more pleasing to the eye, but I'm a very thrifty person and would much rather have black ink only in an instruction booklet if it meant I could save some money. 

This game has made a great addition to our house. It is a great way to help students work on their math facts in a more engaging way. Not only did we play the game, but Alaina also enjoyed just using the cards to make different math sentences for fun. 

Sunya Publishing also has Sunya - The Magic and Wonder of Math and Science Adding & Subtracting. Members of the Review Crew also received this game, so make sure you stop over and read some of those reviews.
