Multiply your child’s math calculation speed while adding fun to his day with Mobi. This fast-paced number tile game transforms necessary math drills from tedious to exciting. Mobi’s crossword-style game comprises sturdy aqua number tiles and white double-sided operations tiles. Use them to make simple math equations of addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division. But make them fast because the first one to use all their blue tiles and yell “Mobi” wins.
Our review team did face one unexpected complication. When the standard Mobi Math was played by several novice mathematicians, the addition/subtraction tiles ran out before the end of the game. That left only the multiplication/division operations tiles that younger players did not know how to incorporate into their equations.
Enter Mobi Max. The extra addition/subtraction tiles provided in this Timberdoodle-exclusive set make it possible to play with an even large proportion of younger players. Mobi is a delightful tile game that will make your children want to review basic math facts. Perfect for on-the-go families, all you need to play is Mobi and a flat surface. Mobi Max includes over 180 acrylic plastic tiles in a cute whale-shaped storage pouch for 1 to 6 players.
Note: Mobi Max uses generic Mobi packaging that does not reflect the Timberdoodle-exclusive 180+ piece set count. Timberdoodle-exclusive Mobi Max is a better set for younger players because it comes with extra addition/subtraction tiles.
Empty all tiles onto a flat playing surface. Separate the blue tiles from the white tiles. All the blue tiles are numbers. All the white tiles are operations. Mix up all the blue tiles, take 7 number tiles each .... say "GO!" ... and you have a game on your hands!
The point of the game is to use up all your blue number tiles by connecting them with equations in a crossword-style grid. (We call this a "POD"). Each player builds their own Pod. When a player has one blue tile left to place, that player says "FLIP" and ALL PLAYERS pick THREE more tiles from the center. Keep this up until the blue tiles run out. First player to connect all of his/her blue tiles shouts "MÖBI" and is the winner!!

”The quickest way I can describe this game is “Scrabble for math.” However, there are some fun differences to how it’s played.”
