    HurriCount is an effective tool that helps preschoolers to learn how to count and compare numbers while playing an exciting game. By regularly playing the game, schoolchildren get a chance to develop and improve their counting skills. Additional cards with greater difficulty levels help you to adapt the game to the players’ level. If you don’t want your kids to excel you at counting, join the fun! Adults enjoy playing HurriCount just as much as kids do. This game is an excellent activity that brings together the whole family for an evening of smart fun.

    Hurricount Box

    Play and get smarter.

    The game is organized in such a way that the learning process happens somewhere in the background, so it won't be hard to convince your child to sit down and play. Kids don't just master the counting, they learn to determine the number of objects on any card, and this compares favourably in their mind with annoying drills. Soon, addition from 1 to 10 won’t require any mental effort. HurriCount develops your child’s attention and logic, and improves mental processing and response time.

    HurriCount has a sequel called HurriCount Mathitude that contains more challenging tasks. The cards from this game can be added into HurriCount, making it more difficult, they can also be used as a separate playing set.

  • Rules of the Game - HurriCount

    How to Set up

    The game contains two decks of cards – one deck with animals (birds, hedgehogs and frogs), and one deck with conditions (e.g., frogs > 3). Shuffle each deck.

    Divide all the animal cards among the players. Each player places in front of him a set of animal cards, stacked face down.

    Place the first condition card in the middle of the table.

    How to Play

    Players take turns opening the top cards in their decks. Each new card is placed on top of the previously opened card, covering it. Only the top open card is relevant for the purposes of the game.

    Each player tries to be the fastest to notice whether, after someone’s turn, the opened cards meet the condition on the condition card, cover the condition card with his palm, and yell “GOT IT!” Decision on whether the condition is met must consider all open cards on the table. For example, in a game with two players, if one player has a card with 2 hedgehogs open, and the second player opens a card with 4 hedgehogs, there are now 6 hedgehogs on the table.

    The player who covers the condition card first takes all the open piles of cards (his own and those of the other players) and places them at the bottom of his deck. If a player covers the condition card mistakenly (or even touches it), he must give one card from his deck to each of the other players. If there are four or more players, then the player who made a mistake only has to give his cards to his neighbors to the right and left.

    Every time someone wins a round and takes the open cards, a new condition card is opened and the used condition card is retired for the rest of this game.

    If a player runs out of cards, he is out of the game. His open pile stays in the game until it is claimed by the player who wins the round.

    How to Win

    The game is over if:

    • All players except one run out of cards
    • All condition cards have been played – in that case, all players count their cards and the player with the most cards is the winner

    For a shorter game, take out some of the condition cards out of the game pile prior to start of game.

    Types of Condition Cards

    The condition cards have three types of conditions on them:

    1. Exact quantity.

    If any of the three animals, together across all the open cards, matches the number on the condition card – be the first to cover it!

    2. Comparison to a number.

    In this case, the condition refers to only one type of animal.

    3. Comparison amongst two animals.

    This compares the total number of one type of animal to the total number of another type of animal on all open cards.

    If one type of animals is entirely absent from all open cards, it means that there is zero of that type of animal, and thus less than every other type of animal. The example in the picture below meets the condition “birds less than 1” because there are zero birds.

    How to Play with Younger Children

    One option is not to play for speed but give younger children a chance to think longer. In this case, only the player who opens the last card can yell “GOT IT!” If the player who opens the card doesn’t notice that the condition is met, the cards stay in place and the turn moves to the next player.

    You also will notice that all animal and condition cards are marked with either one, two or three dots, indicating a level of difficulty of playing with them. A second option for younger kids is to start playing with only the simple cards, marked with one dot.

  • Hurricount

    Hurricount is ook een wiskundig spel van The Brainy Band waarin de kleinste spelers leren rekenen. De speler die het snelste de egels en de vogels kan tellen geeft een gil, en mag de kaart nemen. De ongebruikelijke maar leuke manier van tekenen trekt zowel jong als oud aan om dit spel eens te proberen.

    Papa spricht über … Lernspiele von The Brainy Band

    Wie einige vielleicht mitbekommen haben, war ich im Februar in Nürnberg auf der Spielwarenmesse, um mich über die kommenden Kinderspiele zu informieren. Als ich also so durch die Gänge schlenderte, und mich wunderte, was alle an diesen Miniaturen-Spielen von Asmodee/Heidelberger so finden, sah ich hinter mir einen kleinen Stand. Über dem Stand: The Brainy Band-Educational Games. Warum nicht, dachte ich.
