I just got this Sum Swamp Addition & Subtraction Game for my odest son (age 5) and it is very fun! It's super cute--I especially love the swamp pieces that you move--they are a snail, snake, turtle, or frog. You roll two number and one sign (plus or minus) dice. You add or subtract the numbers you roll and move forward that many spaces. If you land on a number, you roll the sign dice to see if you move forward or back that number of spaces. If you land on an "even" or "odd" space, you roll one dice to see if the number you roll is even on an "even" space or odd on an "odd" space. The game moves quickly and is unpredictable. I also love that my son is really starting to understand adding and subtracting in a fun way.
