About this game

We believe that children are capable of amazing learning progress when they’re given the right opportunities and the proper challenges. Multiple studies have shown that for children, playing is the most effective means of learning interdisciplinary concepts for becoming tomorrow’s thinkers and developers. Here, STEAM  plays an important role in preparing children for today’s challenges. It  integrates five main disciplines (science, technology, engineering, art, and maths) with all other areas of development, including critical thinking, cooperation, creativity, and problem solving. STEAM is the perfect approach that invites children to a meaningful, attractive, fun and  engaging learning experience while fostering their curiosity and social skills, preparing them for later academic and professional success.   Tony’s grocery shop supports children’s learning in 5 main areas:  

1. Numerical visual representation.

2. Meaningful object counting.

3. Progressive arithmetical operations: addition and subtraction.

4. Problem-solving and mathematical reasoning. 

5. Social  and cooperative development. 

Goal of the game

Be the first one to complete the six items in your shopping basket.

How to play the game

1. The youngest player goes first with play proceeding clockwise thereafter.

2. The player throws the die, and takes a banknote depending on the color the die shows . 

3. The player decides whether to buy an item from the shopping list or to save the money for their next turn.

If the banknote obtained surpasses the cost of the desired item the player can take the change from the cashbox and keep it for their next turn. 

Each player can buy only one item from the shopping bag per turn and cannot choose an item that belongs to another player.

4.If the die lands on the “donation” symbol all other players must give back one of their collected items to the store.
