Maths by Stealth

Times Square is a “Maths by Stealth” game. Children won’t know they’re learning their times tables when they’re busy rolling dice, having fun, and battling Zombies!


“A brilliant little game that uses dice and my mental facilities to send zombies back to the graveyard. This maths game is fun and challenging, and a treat for those who are in secondary school to reinforce numeracy, or for older people like me to enjoy stretching our minds.”

Mr Rahman


” We would recommend this as a family game. You can make your calculations as hard or easy as you can manage in your head. You can use multiplication, addition, subtraction, squares, etc. to defeat a zombie. It really gets your mind working

“I bought this game for my son, who’s in Yr 3 at the moment. He likes maths and I just wanted to find an extra fun activity to speed up the process of learning times tables. This game is exactly what I was looking for.”

Odegova Yulia


Brilliant game for the classroom I’ve used this game very successfully with years 7, 8, and 9. The kids love that it’s fun, and I love that they’re practising basic numeracy and number fluency – without complaint!”

Top Marks for this maths Card game


In Times Square, everyone either wins or loses together. Cooperative play ensures confident players can support teammates who are struggling, suggesting different ways of using the dice, or game tactics, but the final decision is always left to the current player!

• Times Square is a complete maths card game and comes with everything you need to play.

You can use cards from Times Square with the City of Zombies board game and vice versa. Some of the icons on the Zombie cards are only used in City of Zombies.

There are 3 different maths card games included, and each game can be made easier or harder with a few simple changes to the rules, it’s all in the rulebook.

You can play competitively if you want. Each player collects the Zombies that they defeat. The player who has defeated the most Zombies at the end of the game is the winner.

We’ve worked with Colour Blind Awareness to ensure that Times Square (and City of Zombies) works with all types of colour blindness.

Kids pretending to be Zombies!

“I was inspired to create a times tables maths card game that worked in a similar way to my first maths game, City of Zombies. I’d been asked if I could create a times tables game with Zombies that go up to 144, which is what Times Square focuses on.

I wanted a game that could be easily carried around and was quick to set up and play. Times Square is perfect for a quick 10 to 20 minute game for 1 to 6 players”

Matthew Tidbury ~ ThinkNoodle Games

Playing Times Square allows children practice and apply the 12 times table in a fun, engaging, and entertaining way. Anyone can play using the maths they know, while the game encourages and rewards players for learning new maths skills at the same time.

The game is perfect to play at home, in game, or after school clubs. It is used in primary and secondary schools across the UK and beyond!
