Giveaway - Rival 5 Game

During the summer, I always think that I'm going to keep reviewing school work. I don't want my children to forget their hard-earned skills. How hard would it be to review multiplication flash cards each morning after breakfast?

Apparently, very hard. Somehow when we end our school schedule, all my consistency falls apart. I think we've done flashcards only three times in the last month.

But on warm afternoons, my children like to sit in the cool house and play games. I like to think that game are a great way to practice math skills. Logic, strategy, adding up scores = painless math practice.

Rival5 Board Game
Last winter we bought a Rival 5 game. This game was invented by a teacher at a prison who was looking for a fun way to practice math facts for her adult students. The game can be played by all ages, as long as they know basic math facts. A child that knows how to add and subtract will be able to join adults with higher math skills.

Rival 5 is easy to learn and was absorbing enough that I wasn't bored with the game when playing with the children. In some games my children are so competitive they can be mean to each other, but I observed that with this game, my children were working together to find solutions.

I love to help spread the word about new products invented by someone who saw a need and is filling it. I was offered a free copy to give to one of you. Go over to the Rival 5 website and then come back here and let a comment sharing one of you favorite games. I'll draw one random winner to receive a free copy of Rival 5 courtesy of the inventor.

Please give an email address in your comment where I can contact you. The giveaway is open to US mailing addresses. Giveaway is open for one week. Don't forget to visit the Rival 5 website before leaving a comment.

Disclaimer: I purchased my own copy of Rival 5 several months ago. A free copy was offered to me to give to one Home Joys reader. All opinions expressed here are my own.

  1. One of our favorite games is toss up. It is a game using colored dice that is easy for children and adults to play. My children use to play it at a nursing home with the residents and it was easy for both age groups.

  6. Quirkle is one of our last new games. Our 6 year old, who has not yet started school, enjoys this game as well as the adults. This game is a great strategy exercise. The colorful tiles are also fun for practice in matching and counting for preschoolers.
