This is an old game that never really gained mainstream popularity. It is very similar to Scrabble, except it plays much faster and the scores are much higher. What Scrabble does for spelling, Numble does for adding and multiplying.
There are many games available today that encourage math skills, but none as basic as this.
Numble does have a degree of strategy involved, which a lot of learning games seem to lack. I would recommend this for anyone who wants to help their child feel a little more comfortable with adding, as well as using multiples of three.
Numble is played on a Scrabble-like board with tiles numbered 0 through 9. A valid 'word' is a monotonic (i.e., increasing or decreasing, with repititions allowed) sequence which sums to a multiple of 3. There are triple and double number and sequence spaces on the board, and a 10 point bonus for clearing your rack. It's extremely high-scoring when compared with Scrabble--scores of 700 or so are easy to achieve.
