What is it
Top of the Tables! is a Times Table game where you can learn to master multiplication by shooting and scoring! This unique football themed game has players focus on individual times tables from 2 to 14 as they spin the spinner to create equations. Three-a-side football teams encourage strategic thinking too! Place a number card within the stadium, put the football player markers in position and take turns spinning the spinner to create an equation. Children can then take a shot, defend their own or block an opponent as they make their way to the goal zone before answering a word problem to score. As well as promoting important mental multiplication skills this game keeps kids off the sidelines and learning happily for hours.

What our experts think
Girls and boys really enjoyed playing Top of the Tables! By lower Key Stage 2, children will be learning to memorise their 12 times tables, so this is a very useful game for children at this level. The set introduces a football theme, providing a fun and engaging way for children to practice their times tables, with different levels of difficulty to help children progress.
Children love a challenge, so pushing themselves in the ‘Premier league’ levels is a great way to get them practicing their 13 and 14 times tables. They game also offers a competitive element, so children can learn to win and lose in a friendly way, and practice taking turns. It requires children to think strategically too.
