Take the challenge

Games from around the world make it fun and challenging to master key mathematical techniques and concepts. Math knowledge from games about logic, patterns, networks and more can help us develop advanced problem-solving for use in science, engineering and daily life. Let the games begin!

  • Magic Square: Test your skill with this ancient Chinese puzzle. Solve the Magic Square and find out why this Chinese puzzle has been intriguing people for more than 4,000 years.
  • Kalah: Play the oldest known continuously played game in history—in fact, a board was found carved into the stone pyramid of Cheops in Egypt.
  • Shongo Networks: Play this fun pattern game from the Democratic Republic of Congo to discover whether networks are traceable and, if so, whether there are multiple ways to trace them. You’ll learn an important part of network or graph theory.
