Can I play PLYT with 2 players?

Yes PLYT can be played by 2 - 6 players.

What Standard Should I be at?

There is no defined standard for each age.
The Standard is different for different levels of ability, so you could have one player simply rolling the Master Dice, recognising the numbers and counting round the board, a second may have a Standard of 3 adding - so they roll & add three dice (including the Master Dice), a third player may have a Standard of Fixed Dice on 2 - fixing the red dice on 2 and rolling the Master Dice to practise their 2 times tables and a fourth on a Standard of 4 dice multiplying - so they roll and multiply 4 dice.
The correct standard for each person is one where they get many of their calculations correct but it can still be a challenge.
The aim is then to encourage players to push themselves out of their comfort zone - by offering the bonus for an extra dice thrown - and hence they keep improving. Once they are going for a bonus every time on their turn and getting many correct, change that to their new standard and encourage them to try another dice.
The aim is to keep improving and you will see confidence grow as players start to challenge themselves.

Do I have to be good at maths to play with my child?

The simple answer is No!
Children love to play & try to beat their parents and they love to see them finding it a challenge - the research showed that where parents challenged themselves (and importantly showed children that it was ok to get some answers wrong - as that is how we learn), the children also challenged themselves more and the biggest improvements were made.
The research also proved that both children and adults improve by playing PLYT so you can improve your maths as you play too. 🙂

What is the daily #Plyter?

The daily #Plyter is a quick, fun, multiple choice challenge that we run on facebook and twitter daily at 19.30. All you need to do to be in with a chance of winning the monthly prize is like or retweet and have a go at the question. At the end of the month one lucky Plyter is drawn at random so the more times you enter during the month (only one entry per day) the more chance you have of winning. Good Luck!

How do Coupons work?

From time to time we will run a promotion using a discount code. To receive the discount, simply enter the code provided into the coupon box on the order cart. When you select “apply coupon” the discount is applied to the cost of the game.

If you have made a mistake you can always remove the discount from your order.

All discount promotions are limited to a maximum number of games. If the limit is reached before the promotional end date orders will be honoured on a first come first served basis.
