I played this game with my 9 year old and it was very cute and fun, but I don't think he learned much from it. He kept asking if the fractions would get more challenging and I said no several times. He really enjoyed the game, but I'd advise to purchased for younger children or children who may be behind their grade level. Side note: I play a lot of board games with my children and they are also strong in math. I purchased the game for my job as I work as an interventionist for 5th graders who are not at level. Most likely I will play only with those lowest students.
I have a 3rd, 2nd, 1st grader and a preschool child, the older ones are just learning basic fractions and from reading this game I figured it would be a helpful and fun learning experience. Well my preschooler figured out the fraction tiles right off the bat and understood the rules easy enough to have fun playing. The game is basic enough to understand and has some tactical player vs player attributes while trying to reach your goal. The rules are explained well enough to start playing a game quickly. The box is solid and the board and tiles are sturdy enough to last many years of playing. Overall I am very happy with my purchase and value.
This is my third Luma World game and I must say this is the best! The artwork is great, components are good quality and the game is amazing! My neighbour’s kid who is 6 years old has also now started to play and understands the fractions!
Hats off to the designers and creative people. Now we look forward to every game launch by Luma!

I thought this game would be so easy that it would get boring for my kids. But the more it goes on, the more they became interested. By the end we were all laughing and arguing about who is going to place the hound where and who is going to mess with the rotation of each other's tiles. I didn't like the way the sticker on the main game board is bubbling up already; that shows much quality control wasn't applied too well.
4.0 out of 5 starsFun for beginners but the parents definitely need to play this one with the kids!

I just decided to break this out this weekend as we have been stuck inside with snow and ice outside. My kids love board games and I was ready for something different than taking a pie in the face. This was a nice introduction to fractions!
They are early elementary but definitely smart. I love games that are educational and this turned out to be pretty fun. Admittedly, one child latched onto it. A little quicker than the other but overall, fun with had by all. It starts slow and builds and so that's definitely a good thing.
5.0 out of 5 starsGreat way to get in some math practice

Let me just say that my child's least favorite subject is math so I have to sneak in extra practice anyway I can. This is a really cute game. I think the characters are just adorable. At first sight, I think my child thought that the characters were cheesy. But I believe that it is all about how you spin it and put it into perspective for your child. If you are excited to play but most important make it about the family time, the game will be a success. This game doesn't take too long to finish and the whole family can play. I recommend it even for a non-math loving kid like mine.

Kiddo's favorite subject is math and I thought this would be a fun way to get some fractions practice in. I was afraid he'd get bored since he is already pretty good at fractions, but luckily the game has enough twists and turns to make it fun.
It is cute, well made, thought out, and all around a great game that is also good for reinforcing basic fraction concepts.
