How does Crew in a Stew work?

Be the first to assemble a pirate crew.

Roll both dice and multiply the numbers. The answer might help you gather your crew. But it won’t be easy!

With mischief and conflict, it could all go wrong. Worse, RATS could infest your ship. So make sure you recruit a CAT, preferably the fearsome Admiral McClaw…

Conflict!

Beware of your rivals, they’ll scheme to disrupt your crew.
You could be embroiled in DUELS, or be forced to WALK the PLANK.
A putrid pirate might even sink your ship. Roll the dice, and let the battle begin!

TIMES TABLES ARE IMPORTANT!

Being able to recall the times tables quickly, randomly and flexibly, is important for building solid foundations in maths. Accurate recall of times tables facts will help with other important aspects of maths beyond the primary years, such as algebra, measurement and trigonometry. Secondary teachers complain that many children lack an effective grasp of times tables, which can slow progress and increase maths anxiety.
Crew in a Stew is a really fun way to practice and memorise times tables, and is great preparation for the new KS2, year 4 multiplications check (MTC).

Have fun playing, and GOOD LUCK!
