What is Numbo?
Let's start with a video...
Numbo is a card game for 6-12 year olds. Its purpose is to help improve times tables skills.
The first deck of Numbo cards have been produced as a limited release - denoted simply as Numbo Season One. The deck consists of 48 character cards, each with a unique character name, illustration and set of statistics. There are 2 blank cards in each deck so that the creatives amongst the tribe of buyers can draw and colour their own. The reverse of the cards each have a number grid. The cards come supplied in a protective, gloss laminated tuck box. It looks cool. See more photos on the product page
Numbo began as Cosmic Crowd back in 2007. I'll write more about the history in a blog post and link to it here. It went through a few names and styles before evolving into the game it is today.
There are a number of decks planned for future release, all dependent on the success of the initial deck. At the moment the intent would be that new decks can be mixed with the existing deck to create a much bigger cast of characters all 'living' in the same universe. Although this might not be the case forever.
