Recognizing Numbers

Will you dare playing Twister… math style?

In this mathematical version of Twister, the colours have been replaced by numbers. The game requires a bit of preparation and space, but it’s totally worth it!

What’s mathematical about this game? You are not given the numbers directly, you have to find them using clues! For example: place your left hand on a number with 5 in the tens position. Two versions of grids and clues are provided, but you can create your own! Other variants are also suggested.
