Brief description of play and winning condition:

These games require strategic thinking which may have to be modified according to the outcome of the dice. Each throw of dice which determines the move also offers the player the opportunity  to learn and practice math concepts without knowing that they are doing it. The strategy is to exercise how to bump others off the board and achieve your own goal (you keep their chips when you bump others off) and how to factor your cell number to advantage. Being bumped is the frustrating element of the game. Lucky throw to exercise bumping and factoring (factor your cell number and occupy multiple cells, example, 56 can be factored to 14 and 4 or 7 and 8, or 28 and 2 or 2,2,2 and 7) are exciting. Winning a big bundle of chips of each game is fun. Learning difficult math concepts become part of the fun is the hidden object.

Proposed theme: Educational games for learning math concepts. For school, bingo sheets instead of game board can be used. It is a ow cost and highly effective teaching tool.
