Orchard Toys - Jeu de Chaudron Magique "Magic Cauldron" - Langue: anglais
There are two versions of this magical, award winning game, which is designed to help children with basic maths skills in a fun way. In both versions, each player takes a cauldron board. The idea of the game is to be the first to fill your cauldron with enough magic ingredients to make a spell. In one version, the small spell ingredients cards are shuffled and placed picture side up in a pile. The bigger sum cards are spread face upwards on the table. The first player picks up an ingredient card and looks at the number on the reverse. They then have to search the sum cards for a sum which they think gives the same answer as the number on the small card. They can then rub the magic black ghost on the back of the sum card to see if it reveals the same number as that on the small card. If the numbers match, the player can add the small card, picture side up, to their cauldron. If the numbers don't match, the small card is returned to the bottom of the pile and the sum card is returned to the table. Play continues until one player has filled their cauldron with ten ingredient cards. The alternative version of the game is played in the same way, but the sum cards are placed in a pile, face up, while the small ingredient cards are spread, picture side down on the table. Players have to find the small card that correctly answers the sum they have picked from the pile, and rub the magic black ghost on the back of the sum card to check their answer. Children love the novelty of rubbing the magic ghost to reveal the answers, while learning to do simple addition, subtraction and multiplication sums. The game is made from durable thick card, which will withstand pleanty of handling.
