Did you really think that there is only one Santa? He would’ve never managed to get all this work done all alone! Many tiny Santas worked their warm knitted socks off trying to make enough Christmas baubles just in time for the Holidays. But there’s no time for a break! In the summer they are busy cooling off the ice-cream for the children… Join these little fellows and have some fun while practicing the basic arithmetic operations. 

Game overview: Basic math turned into a game! Practice addition, subtraction, multiplication and division while playing.  A bright and colorful design that will attract children of all ages and adults. Double-sided game boards: choose between the «summer» and the «winter» side — or play the crazy «mixed» game mode!

Do YOU think you have a way with words? Then this is YOUR chance to show off your vocabulary! Lexit is a word game with a twist! Do not bother looking for words on the cards — you won’t find any! Instead, turn the top card of the deck over and take a close look at the picture: everything that you see can be put into words. Easy, right? Now it is time to change them up! Write these words down and turn them into other words using one, two or all three modifications available in this round. During the game, you will come across four modifications: add one letter, remove one letter, replace one letter and shuffle the letters. Remember: the longer the words are, the more points you get!

Expands the vocabulary, develops verbal skills. Can be used as a learning tool. Language-independent: play Lexit in multiple languages! Very easy rules.

Macroscope is a truly international game. First stop: Denmark. Martin Nedergaard Andersen, an amazing game designer and a good friend of ours came-up with the idea and we liked it from the very beginning. We were set on making it happen!
Next stop: Russia. The only problem was - we were not sure how to make the device itself. In earlier prototypes we had a simple box with some holes punched in it. It was not an ideal solution from a production point of view. A few alterations later, the Macroscope you know today was born! We worked with four different illustrators (Irina Pechenkina, Maria Kaplieva, Oksana Dmitrienko, Alena Naumova) to make sure that we have different styles of drawings. Our team spent many days testing the game and making sure that all pictures are recognizable though not too simple. It was one of the most demanding games, but in the end we were very happy with the result!
Next stop: China. We produce our games at a specialized factory in China. They pay attention to details and their quality is very good.
Next stop: UK? Macroscope is already on the shelves in Russia, Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Italy, France, Japan. Will soon be released in USA, Canada, Czech Republic, Slovakia, China, Taiwan, Korea. Join us and the rest of the world! Play a game of Macroscope!

1. What does the game involve? 
Macroscope involves wits, imagination and a tiny bit of luck.

2. What skills can you build/gain from the game?
Pattern recognition, spatial/visual thinking.

3. What's your favourite tactic or are there any tricks you can teach us?
Always pay attention to the small arrow in the corner of the card. It shows the orientation of the picture and helps a great deal!
