# KS2, Multiplying, Games

**This is another of our clean-and-simple, fun maths games.** It is a 'three in a row' type game with a tight focus on practicing/using multiplication facts.

The game board features a grid of 25 numbers, children work in pairs using different colours of counters and a set of digit cards (2 to 9). They take it in turns to reveal a card, and then put a counter on** any multiple** of that number on the board. **Read more »**

**Here's a unique slant** (as far as I can tell) **on a very old game.**

**First**, pick your ordinary, everyday, everyone can play game, Naughts and crosses (or TicTac Toe). Second, boost it with a mathematical link (in this case times tables).

The result is a fun, educational maths game focussed on helping children practice those 'hard' times tables, the 6x, 7x, 8x and 9x. **Read more »**

**This is another clear board game designed to help children develop confidence with products and factors.**

**Here's a quick and easy maths game to help children practice mental multiplication** in the context of a game. The children have a collection of coloured counters and a game-board. The game-board features a 4 by 4 grid of numbers, and seven separate numbers (in red). The red numbers are factors; the numbers in the grid are products. The children take it in turns to find two red numbers which, when multiplied, will match a cell on the board. **Read more »**

**This is a simple 'Track' game which encourages children to practice multiplication problems**. There is a very strong focus on identifying factors and (as usual) on the accurate use of vocabulary.
