Educational Potential
This is a game with mathematical tasks. The goal is to go up a social ranking by answering mathematical tasks and riddles in a medieval surrounding. The player can collect stars and medals and can see the results of friends and family. The player can choose from different chapters (Counting, Addition, Subtraction,…). Within a chapter the tasks (operations) are getting more difficult. In each task, the player has four possible answers in which one is correct. There ist no time limit for answering the questions, so it is easier for younger players. You get feedback if an answer is not correct and you have another try.

Children practice mathematic in a playful way and learn through repetition. The game could be used within school lessons or for playing at home. There are no misleading information or violence in this game.
Learning Object / Suggested activities with students
Students could divide in groups of two. Each group goes through one chapter which is interesting for the lesson. The teacher once goes to each group and looks if there are problems and at wich section (with wich operations). If there are problems, the teacher addresses them after playing the game for all students. Otherwise he/she summarizes the operations for all after playing the game.
