The Math You Can Play books grew from more than twenty years of playing math with children—at my house, at the library, in the park, and in group workshops. The 42 kid-tested games in these books are simple to learn, quick to play, and require minimal preparation.
I love these books because they help even the busiest parents enjoy playing math with their children.
Now that the publication dust has settled and the typos and formatting glitches have been sorted out, I’ve updated all the Math You Can Play ebook files to match the paperback editions.
The August “Let’s Play Math” newsletter went out last week to everyone who signed up for Tabletop Academy Press math updates. This month’s issue focuses on logic puzzles for all ages, including a newly-discovered deleted scene from Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone. What fun!

Murphy’s Law struck today, and the paperback books that looked so good in the proof copies turned out to have a cover glitch, at least in the ones I ordered from Amazon.

As with any print-on-demand glitch, if you got a badly printed book you can ask Customer Support to replace it.
It could be worse. The interior of the book is fine, at least in my copy. And of course, the ebook versions are totally unaffected.
If you are trying to use the discount code for newsletter subscribers, remember that it’s good through the end of the month. I may even extend the expiration date, if this cover problem persists, but I sure hope to have it fixed in a couple of days.

With the Math You Can Play series, your kids can practice their math skills by playing games with basic items you already have around the house, such as playing cards and dice.
Paperback editions of the first two Math You Can Play books will be out any day now. If you’re subscribed to my Tabletop Academy Press Updates email newsletter, I’ll be sending you a 30% discount code by Thursday, or as soon as both books pass through the last few publishing hoops…
