The Tackling Tables card game provides a great way for building children’s confidence in learning their times tables. Our testers found them easy to use and there was a real sense of achievement when the children got the answers right – they enjoyed being able to collect the cards they had answered correctly.

Parents liked that the cards could be played both individually and competitively, with more than one child at a time. This is ideal for siblings as the different sections of easy, medium and hard are suited to different age groups. Additionally, this also allows progression as children develop their knowledge and confidence.
