Sumoku is a crossword-style game that involves numbers and can be played with 1 to 8 players. The players roll the die to determine the Key Number (3, 4, or 5) which they use to create multiples in a grid format. Players create rows and columns of 2 to 6 numbers that add up to multiples of the Key Number. There are five different versions of this game: Sumoku, Speed Sumoku, Spot Sumoku, Team Sumoku and Solo Sumoku. Solo Sumoku can be played solitaire or in a group and is a great way to begin getting students comfortable finding multiples. Speed Sumoku and Spot Sumoku are more challenging games, which work better once students are more comfortable working with multiples.
