We have developed NUBBLE! EXPRESS, a new faster version of our compulsive arithmetic game Nubble! The Nubble! Express board is composed of just 25 hexagons. The rules are the same as Nubble!, except that numbers are formed by combining the scores on three (5-sided) dice rather than four (6-sided) dice. A full game of Nubble! Express can be played as a maths lesson starter or plenary. Nubble! Express is also perfect for developing the confidence of less able pupils.

Summary of the Rules
Players take turns to throw three dice and, using the numbers thrown, generate a whole number between 1 and 25. For example: 5 x (3 + 1) = 20. The player clicks the number on the Nubble! Express board and scores points depending on which number they have chosen. The highest numbers score the most points. Players score bonus points by making a Nubble! move. This is when the chosen number creates a triangle of three adjacent counters on the board. Double bonus points are scored by making a Nubble! move on a prime number – this is a double Nubble! move. The game ends when there is a continuous path of counters from hexagon 1 to hexagon 25. The winner is the player with the highest score.
