What’s It Like? The Counting Kingdom is a math game that helps kids hone addition skills. The game begins with a brief animated story about monsters invading the castle towers. To protect the castles, kids have to link numbered monsters together to produce sums, which are displayed on pages from a spell book. If they get the sums correct, magic spells are cast and the monsters are destroyed. However, with each passing try, any remaining monsters get closer to the castle tower.
Pros: Kids solve challenging math problems and build critical-thinking skills as levels progress in difficulty.
Cons: Navigation can be a bit tricky to figure out.
Bottom line: With engaging gameplay and solid math content, it’s an excellent way for kids to learn and use addition and problem-solving strategies.
