Cube-Or-ACK! is a cube-building game where players have to attach their playing pieces to each other while staying within the constraints of a cube and avoiding their own colour. The maximum size of the cube is determined by the number of playing pieces available. Players may choose to approach this game in a competitive or a cooperative manner
This game’s main mechanic is connecting together interlocking cube-shaped math manipulatives. Players attach small cubes to each other in order to build a larger cube.
Educational: Players will have the opportunity to learn terminology used to describe 3D shapes, what it means to cube or cube-root a number, the number of units or pieces it takes to build a solid 3D shape, and to tally up scores.
