Nubble! Single User
"Nubble! is the best game, (indeed, piece of software of any type) that I have come across. It is such good value for money."
Ed Crocombe Head of Maths, Ferndown Middle School
"Nubble! is a very flexible tool for all abilities to develop thinking skills and strategies, whether playing competitively or cooperatively in a team. It is excellent value for money, but watch out, this game is addictive!'
Home Education Advisory Service, August 2007
"Nubble! is so good that the staff play it at lunchtime!"
Ruth Lowe, The Friary School, Lichfield
Summary of the Rules
Players take turns to throw four dice and, using the numbers thrown, generate a whole number between 1 and 100. For example: (6 + 4) x (3 + 1) = 40. The player clicks the number on the Nubble! board and scores points depending on which number they have chosen. The highest numbers score the most points. Players score bonus points by making a Nubble! move. This is when the chosen number creates a triangle of three adjacent counters on the board. Double bonus points are scored by making a Nubble! move on a prime number – this is a double Nubble! move. The game ends when there is a continuous path of counters from hexagon 1 to hexagon 100. The winner is the player with the highest score.
The Nubble! software offers text in English, Welsh, French, German, Dutch, Italian and Spanish
