Ben Orlin needs your help.
Ben Orlin is the author of the funny and strangely addictive math blog, Math with Bad Drawings. (The drawings are his very own.) He is working on a new book of tabletop games that involve, yes, math! He needs gamers to test the games he plans to include, and to send him feedback on how they could be improved. All the games, he promises, will use only simple materials found at home—paper and pencil, perhaps dice. They are designed to be very easy to learn, but tricky to master. Play with your family, or via Zoom with a friend. Get more details and sign up to be a play-tester here. You’ll receive email instructions for a new game every week.
