“This is a fantastic game. My 11 year old daughter (who claims to hate maths) and my 8 yr old son love this game, as do I”
City of Zombies is different to most games, it’s co-operative, which is great when you’re trying to get an 8 year old to practice his maths!
Excellent game. All the family love it. Daughter is doing maths in advance of her school year and my husband is also playing it with his friends!
Alana's animals maths card game

Alana’s Animals

Giving Young children a head start in maths

Alana’s Animals is an enchanting family game that teaches children the key maths skills needed in schools. Recommended by National Numeracy
For 2 to 4 players  |  10 mins  |  Age 3 to 14

So How do you play?

Collect Animals

Start by choosing animals to build your farmyard using any combination of animal cards you’d like.

Earn apples

When you’ve built your farm it’s time to score the Reward Cards and see how many apples you can win.

Count your Reward Cards

Once all the Reward cards have been scored, the player who’s farmyard has the most apples is the winner!

What does playing Alana’s Animals teach children?

Number recognition

Counting the animals as the farmyard grows helps children become more confident in maths. For very young children, it’s about encouraging number recognition, counting, and player interaction.

Rational counting

Collecting different animals helps with rational counting, teaching the ability to assign the correct number to a group of items, and which number corresponds to the total amount.

Subitising

Subitising is becoming an increasingly important maths skill. It refers to the ability to be able to recognise the number of objects without having to individually count each one.

Quantities & magnitude

Helping children with an understanding of quantities and recognising the magnitude of a number. It helps children grasp concepts such as lowest number and number ordering.

Reviews

★★★

“This is a fun game, perfect for young kids, but with a true depth of play that will appeal to even the most tactical game player. The stealth math and vocabulary content don’t get in the way of the gaming elements. Don’t let the cute artwork fool you – this is well worth putting on the table.

★★★★★

“Usually the thought of playing a maths game with the kids fills me with dread, either because it is too complicated or takes far too long to play, but I actually enjoyed this game. There are a few ways to play, and it teaches children without being boring. The cards all have colourful and fun pictures of animals and some have things hidden on them as a little bonus game.”

★★★★★

What a find! Finally, an early years maths game that is great fun, exciting, and educational. I bought Alana’s Animals whilst searching high and low to satisfy my grandson’s appetite for endless game playing and was delighted when it was such a success.
