“With three kids 8-11 years old, mathematics is a huge topic in our house and my kids and I love Race To Infinity. It’s a fantastic game that lets us play with mathematics while also having a lot of fun and competing against one another while practising all of our functions on numbers and we really like it and enjoy it a lot...
It’s always a challenge to make mathematics fun for children such that they can practice and get engaged with mathematics in a way that keeps their attention and keeps them entertained.
And frankly I’ve not seen anything that compares to Race To Infinity to make that happen. It’s a wonderful game that my kids ask me to play and they don’t even realise that they are practising their multiplication tables and their division over time. I highly recommend the game to anyone that is trying to make mathematics easy and/or fun to practise and learn. Good luck.” - Roy Vella, Parent & School Governor for Numeracy

At BeGenio - Easy Maths Skills, we have developed a new, exciting, fun Maths Board Game, fun maths programmes and workshops that help children love Maths, build confidence, enjoy maths more, increase their proficiency in maths and reduce mathematical anxiety. Our mission is to turn maths into a game that every child will love to play every time.
This game, Race To Infinity was developed to combat the problems that we see affecting children and parents where Maths is concerned. We've been in this arena of maths games for kids since 1997 and the 3 most common problems we found are that many children:
1. Hate Maths, don't see the point in doing it, or find it a boring chore.
2. Don't believe they can get good at it. (Usually because they've been inadvertently told that by a parent or a teacher).
3. Do not have effective, creative, fun methods of doing maths at school and at home.
Sadly, many children experience low self-esteem and low self-confidence as a result, which can affect their life and future.
The bigger problem is that many parents are afraid of maths themselves and don't know how to help their children. Teachers also don't have the effective resources they need to help children master maths in a fun, easy way.
We created this board game to solve these problems, where teachers/parents and children will be able to play together without stress, pain or struggle. Teachers and parents can now help their children effectively and make a positive difference in their children's lives, without the fear of not knowing enough maths or the fear of confusing the child with old methods.
Benefits of this board game are summarised below:
- truly fun
- very engaging
- very entertaining
- children learn and improve their maths skills without realising they are learning
- develops analytical skills
- develops decision making skills
- develops critical thinking skills
- develops creative thinking skills
- develops logic
- develops social skills and interaction skills
- extensible to make the game harder or easier
- covers the most fundamental parts of the curriculum, including the multiplication Timestable and the other three operations.
- has time-telling expansion decks
- has maths tricks and shortcuts expansion decks that make calculations lightning-fast for children.
Our board game was specifically designed in such a way that when children are using it they think are playing, but not realising they are actually learning.
We have conducted over 260 demonstrations in schools, tuition centres and homes in the UK with tremendous results; and have over 400 fantastic testimonials from teachers, parents children, head teachers, heads of Maths/Maths co-ordinators and parents. We have also tested this game in a Special Needs school with autistic children and they were very engaged in the game for 40 minutes solid.
The game was recently adopted by the Maths Lead in the London Borough of Wandsworth for their schools tournament in August 2017, after testing successful with Wandsworth school teachers.
Race To Infinity is different from other games.
The main differences between the Race To Infinity™ game and others are:
1. Excellent, true replayability value that keeps children coming back to want to play over and over again, hence perfectly disguising that they are learning maths and practising and developing all the time.
2. Expandable to include more mental maths, mental tricks and any other set of cards to teach anything and any other subject or topic; even if on the fly.
3. Older and younger children, maths-lovers and maths-phobics struggling with maths, and adults and young children can play together, without any groups or players feeling left out.
4. Two different Levels – Level 1 and Level 2
5. It’s not just a maths game; it was specifically designed to also teach and develop strategy, decision-making, problem-solving, logic, analytical thinking, deductive reasoning, critical thinking, creative thinking skills and related crucial life skills.
With the Race To Infinity game, the element of surprise built in means that anything can happen!
As an added bonus, we also have a special method around using games to increase maths confidence and have been part of a charity who has been doing this successfully for over 20 years. We strongly believe every child should have this game to promote stress-free methods to help increase their grades and maths confidence.
Our founder, Grace, who is the Vice Chair of the Board of Governors of a UK Primary School, and a Director and Trustee for a Central London University's SU Board has also recently been commissioned by the Number Partners Charity (part of Tower Hamlets' London Borough's Education Business Partnership) to roll out this tried and tested, successful not-for-profit Programme out across schools in the district of Essex, England. This has now been set up successfully. We have several written and video testimonials about how pupils' became more confident using this programme, from various schools in the UK.
We are keen to help raise proficiency levels amongst children and across schools globally.

Our game was demo'ed by the UK Toy Fair TV: https://youtu.be/5nV4ApaiMXM at UK Toy Fair 2016.
Recently in February 2017, we were featured in the Toy News UK:
It has also been accepted by the Good Toy Guide. The Good Toy Guide is a major Toy & Game testing and accreditation company in UK. The game passed really well. The Good Toy Guide suggested some tweaks which have been included in the new games, including expanding the Race To Infinity game to have two levels; thereby changing the age range to include 6 years.
Here's the link to a short video on one of the case studies we carried out in the UK with a Head teacher and teacher in a school, showing kids having fun playing the game in their maths class in the UK (We have
We conduct demonstrations in schools. We are going to roll this game out globally, including our online courses and LIVE workshops for parents, children and teachers.
We look forward to hearing from you soon and have attached some more information and added some great testimonial links below.
We have also been endorsed by UK's National Numeracy organisation, the Maths Celebrity Prof Chris Imafidon dubbed by UK media as the Father of Britain's brainiest family, Explore Learning Centre who has over a 100 tuition centres in the UK and abroad, Number Partners (part of Tower Hamlets Education BP) and the reputable accreditation Toy & Games company, the Good Toy Guide.
