# Name that online multiplication practice game

October 2, 2007

A while back, I found a cute online game for practicing multiplication facts. It involved a cartoon-style ninja fight, and by answering several problems quickly, you could earn special moves. I haven’t been able to find it again since. Does anyone know the game I am thinking of?

my 3rd grade kids love this site!

I don’t know the game you describe. It sounds fun!

I did a search and found a downloadable game. Doesn’t look like it has cartoons, but the levels are by karate belt color—my kids will like that. Otherwise, it looks like a basic flashcard-style game:

Yeah, I had found that, and it’s not the one. I’m guessing the one I am looking for is no longer available, for whatever reason.

Here’s what I did find:

Arithmetic Game — you can set the parameters for which facts you want them to work on. Very simple, basic, to the point. Offers all 4 operations, mixed together or separate.

Math Magician Games is another basic one that offers all 4 operations.

Math Trainer – Multiplication is nice because it keeps track of which facts you get wrong, and which you get right, and gives you a nice visual of your strengths and weaknesses. Only for multiplication, and allows you to work on “chunks” of the times table at a time.

There’s more here that I have bookmarked, but I haven’t really looked at them.
