Join us at the 2019 National Math Festival for a chance to “show and play” your favorite math-related board games. Haven’t got a favorite to bring? No worries! Instead, discover someone else’s and play along…
As a maze lover, I personally have spent hours playing Labyrinth (opens new window) and Tsuro (opens new window)
I’m very curious to see what mathy board games you will bring to the Festival to share!
