MultiBRICKation

A game of multiplication

I present to you a board game called MultiBRICKation. It is a perfect way for children to learn basic multiplication with two numbers from 1 to 10 each. As you can see, the board is actually a multiplication table.

The set comes with:

- a board,
- 4 red and blue figurines,
- 50 red and blue discs and
- 10 red and blue cards with numbers 1-10 on one side.

FUN INCLUDED :)

The board can be separated into 3 sections for easier storage and you can pin the cards to the side of the board when you are done playing. There are even some decorations like a farmhouse, a big old tree and a river that runs into the lake.

Premise:

Once upon a time there were two castles, red and blue. Sheer luck and knowledge of multiplication decided their fate.

You can play two different games with this set or make up your own.

Game #1:

It is a pretty simple game in the spirit of tic-tac-toe.

Goal

The goal of the game is to get 4 discs in a row, horizontally, vertically or diagonally.

How it is played:

- Each player starts with 50 discs off the board.
- Players decide who starts the game.
- Player turns the cards upside down so the numbers are not visible and mixes them up randomly.
- Player takes one red and one blue card and multiplies the two numbers.
- Player puts his disc on the board where the product (multiplication result) number is (rows are red and columns are blue).
- Player puts the cards back down and mixes them up again.
- The other player does the same.
- Players take turns.

Rules:

- If you land on a number that you already occupy, you don't do anything.
- If you land on a number that is occupied by the opposite player, you now occupy it and the opposite player gets his disc back.

Game #2 (Core game):

A bit more complex game, but still easy to learn.

Goal:

Capture all opponent's discs OR figurines.

Additional description of the board:

The white road (with one brown bridge) is the path that figurines are moved along and it is 109 stubs long.

Each 10th stub on the road is black for easier counting.

Blue figurines start at the blue castle and red figurines start at the red castle.

How it is played:

- Each player starts with 50 discs and 4 figurines off the board.
- Players decide who starts the game.
- Player turns the cards upside down so the numbers are not visible and mixes them up randomly.
- Player takes one red and one blue card and multiplies the two numbers.
- Player puts his disc on the board where the product (multiplication result) number is (rows are red and columns are blue) and moves one figurine the number of stubs equal to the product along the white road.
- Player puts the cards back down and mixes them up again.
- The other player does the same.
- Players take turns.

Rules:

- In the first four turns all figurines must be placed on the road. After that a player can move any figurine they choose.
- If the figurine reaches the opponent's castle, you capture one of their discs. The captured disc must be one of the discs that are on the board. You can pick whichever disc you want. The figurine starts from the beginning. The beginning for the figurines is off the board.
- If the figurine lands on the stub that is already occupied by the opponent's figurine, you capture that figurine.
- If the figurine lands on the stub that is already occupied by your figurine, that figurine must start from the beginning.
- If a disc lands on a number (product) that is already occupied by the opponent's disc, you capture that disc and place your disc on the number.
- If a disc lands on a number (product) that is already occupied by your disc, you don't do anything. The disk is not placed on the board and a figurine is not moved. It is as if the player skipped their turn.

Now, isn't that a fun way to learn multiplication? You bet.

MULTIPLY YOUR FUN!

Kind regards
