Description

Mathematical word problems is a difficult lesson for
children to grasp. Children who have a better
command over the language tend to solve the questions with ease. However, as a
topic it is quite boring for children and they usually donâ€™t enjoy solving them.

Game Play

The youngest player starts first by rolling the die and moving her/ his pawn in clock- wise
direction. Depending upon where she/ he lands action has to be performed.
Following are three places where a player can land on:
Numbered places- On this place draw the number of cards from resources pile to increase
your inventory.
Red Numbered places- Loose these many cards
Secret Wish Card- Draw a card from the secret wish card pile. Can use the card in the next
or any other turns
If the player lands on the Barrier points he/ she has to try to get over the barrier by solving
the math problem.
If the answer is incorrect or she/ he is unable to solve/ not eligible to solve then the she/ he
has to draw a one card from the penalty pile.
However, you need to have a minimum of 15 food items, 15 water sacks and 15 medicines
to gain a relic which then unlocks the hidden treasure.

Winning Condition

The Banjara who gains the relics fastest and finds the treasure by getting over all barriers
wins the game.

Special Condition

problem or the secret wish cards.
