Fractazmic! TOS Crew Review!

Are you always on the look out for fun ways to reinforce or introduce math topics? If you are, you will want to visit the I See Cards Website! We recently received the card game Fractazmic from them to review. Last year we had the opportunity to review Pyramath so I was already familiar with their games, and Buster is always excited to try out a new card game. Fractazmic is a fun and easy card game that teaches how to add like fractions. The instructions are short and to the point and were very easy to figure out. Here is a run down of basic game play:
First you need 2-4 players 6 and up. Next you pass out the cards, and players take turns either drawing a card from the deck or discard pile. The object is to make a hand of fraction cards that make a 1. There are 3 sets the Sixteenths(red), the twelfths(blue), and the tenths(green). Any combo of fractions can be used within a set to make a 1. When you make a hand you set it aside, and play continues until someone runs out of cards. The player with the most hands wins. For additional ways to play visit

What I like most about this card game is the helpful pictures that make learning fractions fun and easy. I also like how easy and fast game play is, which makes it an ideal addition to a busy school day! You can also play an online version of Fractazmic here!  
You can purchase Fractazmic and other fun educational games from I See Cards! Fractazmic costs $6.95+SH. For more info visit their website!

Fractazmic was given to me free of charge from I See Cards in exchange for my honest review. No other compensation was given.
