Dive into the world of numbers! Develop mathematical thinking strategies and build a firm maths future! Fun and maths go hand-in-hand in this curriculum-rich, single or multi-player board game adventure that draws children into thinking mathematically with confidence and competence.
Exciting adventure game scenario: Your plane has crash-landed on a volcanic island that's going to blow at any moment! Race the other players around the island game board to gather the most fuel canisters so you can be the one to escape in the jet pod when the island blows.

The impressive multi-player option means the whole family can play at the same time, each at their own maths level! Every player will find a level and style of maths questions to challenge and stimulate them.
