This is one of the most fun–and educational–games we’ve seen in years. And not a battery or an LED in sight. There’s a whole backstory to the game, about sheep herding, but the basic idea is to use cards to add one to the previous player’s total.

Start with cards numbered 1, 2, 3, and 4 face up on the table (as in the picture). Using at least two cards, you can add, subtract, multiply, or divide but can use any card only once. So the first player might start with 4-3 = 1. The next says 4-2 = 2; the next says 2+1 = 3. It’s very easy at first, but the higher you go, the harder it gets (4×3 is 12, minus 1 is 11, times 2 is 22, for example). Once you max out what you can do with 1, 2, 3, 4 (somewhere around 36: 4×3 = 12, 2+1 is 3, 3×12 = 36), add a 5 and keep on counting, one number at a time, getting more and more challenging as you go.

Albert’s Insomnia is great for teaching math skills because all the calculations have to be done in your head. It's a great car game that keeps the kids (and adults) busy and entertained for hours. Ages 6 and up.
