You’ve played games forming words from letters, but how well can you form equations from numbers?
Numbler is a game where players build math equations in a familiar crossword style board. All the mental fun of popular board and online word games, but with numbers instead of letters.
• Simple and addictive gameplay that people love from well-known word games
• Challenge your friends with Pass & Play or test yourself against the computer
• A fun and educational way for students to sharpen their math skills
• Suitable for all ages: children to adults
Players take turns forming or extending equations in a horizontal or vertical direction. Tiles must be placed according to the following rules:
1. Each turn must use at least 1 tile from the board and 2 tiles from your hand
2. All adjacent tiles must be part of a true and complete equation
3. Tiles cannot be moved once they are played
4. Players may choose to pass and forfeit their turn
5. The game ends when both players pass their turn in succession with no tiles remaining in the pool
The score for a turn is the sum of each digit in the equations formed or extended during that turn, according to the following rules:
1. Operator and equal sign tiles have no score value but do help capture bonus tiles.
2. The value of two consecutive number tiles is the sum of their individual values. So a 1 and 2 tile placed beside each other has a value of 3, not 12
3. The value of a created or extended equation is increased or multiplied by bonus tiles covered by tiles placed during the turn

Ratings and Reviews
Numbler has been a blast since losing my very first game! I discovered this app on Zite, and, as a nerdy Scrabble-junkie, latched on immediately. Unlike Scrabble, Numbler enables players to develop without having to study outside resources. Being able to decompose numbers improves with practice and a willingness to think creatively. I highly recommend Numbler to anyone looking for a challenging and highly addicting past time.
If you think you are good with numbers try playing with out paper or pencil and still use big numbers and multiple operations. Don't try playing on HARD mode until you can figure how to get 40 to 50 points on your turn.
I'm 71 years old, and I approve this game.
Probably worst development I've ever seen
I really like the game itself. Fun, engaging, playable with my friends, strategic.
Whoever programmed the multiplayer turn and point system might want to incorporate *any* amount of testing into their development process. My points count for my opponent- sometimes. I occasionally get two turns in a row. My moves get UN-moved. Sometimes the game tells me it's my opponents turn but let's me play anyway.
I guess if this game has taught me any math it's got to do with probability.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
