Matthew Tidbury

Matthew is an award winning product designer who designed the world’s first cordless kettle back in 1983 while at Design College. 

Matthew has always had a love of gaming with many fond and happy memories playing a wide range of board and card games with friends and family as a child.

Matthew designed his first game, City of Zombies in 2008 as a way to help his children improve their maths without them realising it.

The game was self published in early 2014 and is currently on it’s third edition. It’s being used in homes and schools all over the world to help children of all ages and maths abilities improve their numeracy through play, from the UK to Singapore, Korea, Australia, Iceland and the United States.

Matthew runs ThinkNoodle Games and has self published 3 game titles so far - an all round maths game: City of Zombies, a Times Table game: Times Square and most recently a maths game for preschool children Alana’s Animals. 

Matthew runs math workshops and gaming events in schools across the UK and has plans for a tour of schools in Iceland and Canada later this year.

Matthew’s games are fun and have great replay-ability, they engage and inform, making a real difference to a child's learning and understanding. All of Matthew’s games can be played in a number of ways to engage players of different ages and abilities.
