Several months ago I was contacted by Julie, the creator of Speed!, to see if I was interested in reviewing a card game. Â Since one of my goals for this year was to incorporate more game time into our week, I eagerly said yes. Â
Now I remember why I rarely do reviews, because I’m embarrassed to admit how long I had this fun card game before we got around to playing it! Â
Speed! Improves Math Facts
Speed! is an easy to play game that was created to help children learn and retain multiplication facts.
Once we finally sat down to play, it was very easy to get started and learn the rules. Â It is similar to a war type of card game. Â The goal is to get rid of all your cards as quickly as possible, before your opponent. Â
Fun and Educational Card Game
This card game is an excellent addition to our home. Â I had forgotten how fun it can be to play card games. Â I have to admit I don’t really love playing board games, mostly because they can go on forever, Chutes and Ladders anyone?? Â But this game was quick, fun and challenging. Â We could play “best out of three” in just a few minutes. Â Plus, the bonus is the kids don’t really even realize they are working on their math facts.
Here is a short video on how to play the game:
My older kids can easily play with me or with each other. Â I’m only sorry I waited so long to get around to playing. Â You can purchase Speed! through this Amazon link. Â This is a great resource to keep those math facts fresh throughout summer. Â Enjoy!
