I had a friend ask about games that involve fractions or decimals and none came to mind, so I turn to you all.

They don't have to be 'educational'.

Thanks.

When gems are distributed, you must figure out how much each person gets, and then leave the leftovers on the path. Although this is a better example of division and remainders, remainders are truly fractions.

Does this excellent new game count?

You roll a number of dice equal to how many meeples you have placed, and then the amount of food you get is x/2, wood is x/3, brick is x/4, stone x/5 and gold x/6.

This expansion for this educational game (picture is of the base game as there are no pics of the expansion) introduces some simple multiplying by decimals - x 0.5, x 1.5, x 2.5 only.

It's not bad as an educational enrichment for a young child, my daughter is 8 and we're enjoying it. Wouldn't take it to a game day with grownups though.

This game works with halfs. It doesn't require any real mathematic skill for calculations though.

The "adventurous" variant includes decimals as an option, or the goal might be a fraction, or might require a fraction in the solution.

I couldn't find any good close-up pictures, but the cards that let you steal from other players come in 1/2, 1, and 1-1/2 varieties.

Any number of wargames use fractions, especially for deciding things like army morale. In Days of Knights, an army must make panic checks for all units when it loses 25% of its initial point value. When it loses 50% of its point value, all remaining units must make morale checks or route off the table. An army loses when it has lost 66% or greater of its starting value. Usually, when you hit the 50% check, it's all over, because you'll easily lose the remaining few points from failed morale checks to put you over the 66% limit.

This game of mathematical Boggle has both a decimal point (The green 0's with a dot in them can be specified as decimal points or 0's depending on the rules used for the round) and a cube with fractions on it. Also fractions can be expressed by stacking 2 cubes on top of each other:


+---+
| 1 |
+---+ +---+ +---+ +---+ +---+ +---+ +---+ +---+ +---+ +---+ +---+
| X | | 3 | | 7 | | รท | |1/3| | = | | 1 | | 8 | | . | | 5 |
+---+ +---+ +---+ +---+ +---+ +---+ +---+ +---+ +---+ +---+ +---+
| 6 |
+---+


TUF!

Equate is a 'scrabble-like' game using equations. Many of the tiles contain fractions.

The reinforcement for each nation is 1/3 of the number of current units on the board. One difference is the fractions are kept between turns. These fractions are recorded in the upper right corner of the board shown.

So if a country has 4 units on turn 3, they will add a unit now (now they have 5 units) and store the remaining 1/3 of a unit. Assuming they lose no units in the interim, on turn four the nation will add 2 units:

5/3 (for the current units on board) AND
1/3 (leftover from turn 3)

When keeping track of oil, you turn the marker by quarter turns.

Point cards values are in units of 1/3 or 1/2 depending on the exact game, e.g. King is 4 1/3 points, eight worth 1/3 point.
