Math Scrabble is just like Scrabble, but instead of letters, players get numbers and arithmetic operators. There is a pile of equal signs that players can freely draw from. Players will always need at least 1 equal sign, therefore they are extremely important and players should never be stuck not having one. With regular Scrabble, there are vowels, that are required for every word, but with a variety of vowels to choose from, the chances a better you’d be able to use a vowel are higher. Tthis is not true for equal signs, of which there is only one.
For example, if a player has 2, 5, 7, 1, 3, +, and * they could play a variety of things…
- 2 + 1 = 3
- 5 + 2 = 7
- 5 + 7 = 12
- 5 * 3 + 2 = 17
- 09 + 4 = 13
- 2 / 5 + 3 = 1 / 4

EDIT: It was just brought to my attention this game basically already exists. Sad face. I’ll probably pick it up at some point and try to improve on it. A lot of the reviews I read said something along the lines of “Great idea, poor execution”. I happen to think I’m great at executions. … … Yeah, that’s right.
I absolutely LOVE the idea of this game, and will GLADLY playtest it with you! 🙂
Yup. That was ME who brought that to your attention. 😛
