Maths by Stealth
“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.”
” 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“
Welkers – Amazon
“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.”
“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!”
How does it work?
Combine dice using addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division.
Even squaring and square roots can be used to reach the number on the Zombie card to ‘defeat it’.
Times Square is fast and fun, and playing is as easy as 1, 2, 3…
1. Roll your dice
2. Combine your dice
3. Defeat Zombies!
A Game that makes Maths fun for everyone
“The kids love the game and want to play it everyday since we got it.”
Welkers – Amazon
Learn your times tables as you play
Players work together to defeat the Zombies by rolling and combining dice and using addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, and even squaring, and square roots to match the number on the Zombie card. If they can match the number, that Zombie is destroyed!
Times Square is the perfect maths card game for school maths lessons, maths clubs, or for home education with the family to sneakily improve maths skills!
Top Marks for this maths Card game
PLAY AGAINST THE GAME, NOT EACH OTHER
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!

“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
