Sunya – The Magic and Wonder of Math and Science Adding & Subtracting
This hot off the presses, educational game can be played either alone, in a group or during family fun time.
“Sunya is a word from Sanskrit, the ancient and classical language of the Hindus. Sunya means empty or void of any quantity. In the game of Sunya, the first player to play her/his card to make a number sentence and go out of cards to win, says “Sunya” (I am out of cards).” -Sunya Instruction Book
To play, first remove the plus, minus and equal signs from the deck. Decide whether you will do a ‘minus’ or a ‘plus’ game.
Then make a true math sentence.
Shuffle the cards well and deal four cards to each player.
The first player examines his/her cards to see if they can make a true math statement from their cards. If they can, they lay them down.
If they can change two of the cards to make a true math statement they put them down. If they can’t make a move, they draw a card from the pile one at a time until a sentence can be made.
Once the cards are put in play, the next person goes.
The person playing their last card calls out “Sunya” to win. That person then draws from the Math and Science Facts and Riddles pack and answers a fun question.
Our Experience with Sunya – The Magic and Wonder of Math and Science Adding & Subtracting
We played the Adding & Subtracting Game with single digit whole number 0-9.
While it was easy for my older kids to do the math, my 6 year old was intrigued by this challenge. The provided number line helped him keep up with his siblings.
There are several variations to the game including the 0&1 Rule, Reverse Play, Exchanging cards plus more options. Plus options for preschoolers too. Tailor the game to fit your game players!
My kids enjoyed this game. Please check out what other crew members had to say about Sunya – The Magic and Wonder of Math and Science Adding & Subtracting and Sunya – The Magic and Wonder of Math and Science Multiplying & Dividing.
