Board games that allow young players to practice their math facts! Either with or without any modification! Please feel free to add or comment on your own variants!

One of the many uses to which we put our board game collection is to practice math facts with our elementary school children. Sure, sometimes we just do drills and there are plenty of iOS math games. But for the most part the "theme" on math games is very light.

Criteria: the game should regularly present its players with an opportunity to do some math facts, usually addition and subtraction. Other math ideas such as shape, estimation, measurement, reading graphs of all kinds, and multiplication and division are welcome.

Deck builders allow a theme for purchasing and making change. Many other deck-builders have other themes that may appeal to kids.

Addition: single digit, some double-digit in totaling VP at the end of the game. Multiple kinds of resources.
Subtraction: single digit, rarely double-digit.
Multiplication: a few cards give the player 2x purchasing power.

Integration of Math to Play: Highly integrated. Required for play.

Math is somewhat more hidden in this game and is not directly obvious in the placement of tiles. Requires a player to have a mathematical imagination in the playing and scoring of tiles and Meeples. Also has a victory point board that does some of the addition for the player.

Addition: single digit, rarely double-digit except in end-scoring.
Subtraction: none.
Shapes: the game requires spatial imagination.

Integration of Math to Gameplay: Excellent but more hidden. Numbers for scoring are not present in the game pieces.

Resource gathering requires attention to how much various buildings and animals cost. Requires planning and foresight in gathering various kinds of materials and then purchasing them. Victory is obtained through scoring points for various things built or animals acquired.

Addition: single digit, some double-digit in totaling VP at the end of the game. Multiple resources.
Subtraction: single digit, rarely double-digit.

Integration of Math to Play: well integrated but no regular opportunities for serious addition. Aside from gathering and purchasing, the scoring of the game is entirely at the end and has to be kept in view at all times in the game.

We got a lot of use of this game when my kids were younger. Our rule was that after adding your donut you had to say the total out loud. Great for practicing basic addition.

When my kids were learning division, I would play this with them. I would have them do the division of the gems. Whoever came up with the correct answer first would get a bonus gem.

Hey, 24 is a game my kids loved. In fact, there was a county-wide competition where the top kids from each school competed.

This is not really 'math facts' as it is outright computation.. any mix of subtraction, addition, multiplication, and division that gets the player to 24. there are various decks of 24 cards for various skill levels.

Cheers.

Final scoring of this game is all about tables:

Multiplication: tables, especially 3, 4 and 5 times tables (to work out the score for each number)
Addition: addition of a list of two digit numbers

Integration of maths to play: none, but plenty if you make your children do their own final scoring.

OK, this is a mass market game, and gets bad press for that, but it is great for teaching early maths skills to children.

Money maths: Paying by breaking down numbers into change - 10s, 5s and 1s, and higher
Multiplication: At various points in the game tables are required, particularly in Millionaire's Mansion, but also lots of doubling and halving and "X times the number on the spinner"
Addition and Subtraction: Combining all the payouts in a turn into one single payment requires addition and subtraction skills

This game is also great for reading, as it has some quite complex words for young children to learn.

Kindergarten and 1st Grade math level: Can turn in 3 or more numbered cards that create a basic addition equation in order to draw the same number of cards from the deck. So, for example, you could discard a 2, 5, and 7.

Addition: single digit up to 10.
Subtraction: none.
Multiplication: none.
Division: none.

Integration of Math to Play: Moderately integrated - the point of the game is to capture the sleeping Queens with your Kings, so the numbered cards don't play toward that goal. However, the more numbered cards you can discard, the greater chance you have of drawing something more useful to replenish your hand.

2nd, into 3rd Grade math level: The unique one here is division in calculating resources. Want wood? Roll a number of dice based on the number of meeples you have working the space. Take the result and divide by 3. Other resources handled in the same manner - Food by 2, Brick by 4, Stone by 5, and Gold by 6. Also need multiplication for scoring huts and endgame bonus cards.

Addition: into the triple digits while adding up a running game score.
Subtraction: very basic in score tracking.
Multiplication: multiplying endgame modifiers with number in specific categories from bonus cards you own. Also, some huts require you to calculate their value based on the resources used to construct it.
Division: collecting resources based on type and die roll.

Integration of Math to Play: Highly integrated - basic multiplication and addition (and rarely subtraction) are required for score-keeping; division is required for resource gathering.

This is essentially a "Connect 4" type of game. Each space has a number, and to claim a space, you have to play cards that add up to exactly this number.

Very good fun card game. Math used is lots of 2-digit addition and subtraction plus knowing 10 times table, with occasional rounding to nearest multiple of 10, and digit reversal. Math is core mechanic of the game.

No player elimination, plus no downtime if you play with the advanced "same number sneak" rule. Easy to play in multiple rounds to fill whatever time and concentration levels are available. Also helps a lot that my kids are really into Greek mythology at the moment!

A simple but enjoyable race-car themed children's game which uses card play and addition of numbers (positive and negative) to make your cards advance onto track squares with the same number as the sum you create.

Has a basic version (in which sums are always of 3 numbers, a row or column in a 3x3 array) and advanced version (in which sums might be of many numbers in a growing Scrabble/Qwirkle-style tableau).

THE ULTIMATE MATH GAME!

Literally, you roll three dice, and then by using addition, subtraction, multiplication, and/or division you try and find a total that gives an available space on the board.

The zombies are invading and the only thing that stands between them and the utter collapse of civilisation is you and your maths skills!

This is quite a nice co-op, needing some arithmetic and mental agility to succeed.

Addition: Double to triple digits, four times a game (after each Chapter and for final scoring)
Subtraction: Single or double, as needed, to make change with scoring tokens.
Multiplication: Single or single/double digits throughout the game, and after each Chapter.
Mechanics/choices: Draw a tile, place a tile; decisions on when to use your multiplier figures.

Integration of Math to Play: Highly integrated. Required for calculating score and for playing well.

This game (and, I presume, Kingdoms, which B:tM reimplements) includes a lot of single/double digit multiplication and some choices a child may find interesting. I played with my boy when he was 8-10, we haven't played recently but I may need to get it out again.
There are three different layouts with grid patterns; you place tiles with either a number value, or a special modifier (negate scores, move a tile, etc); or a scoring/multiplier token, in each space of the grid until it's full. Once it's full, each player adds up the numbers up/down and left/right from his scoring/multiplier tokens, and multiplies by the multiplier, and scores that many points from a set of point tokens.
This occurs during three acts.
Your 1x multiplier tokens return to you after each chapter; your 2x, 3x, and 4x are usable once per game.
Strategic yet accessible, math-required but not overwhelmingly "mathy".

Not the most common game but I happen to have a copy.
Players are forced to count spaces and apply movement cards as well as total up your drunken sailors. My kid has fun and I can see the little math gears a turnin when we play.

Super simple to teach and play.
