Tarquin's new games, the 6 packs of Maths Trumps, are launched this month. Using games well in education is never easy. But revision and reinforcement are often dull and verging on rote and repetitious.

Perfect as gifts for mathematicians, as centrepieces of mathematics rooms in schools and colleges or as a very personal reminder of the wonders of the universe!
