Dear teacher, I saw your enjoyment playing GIMATRIKS, and mostly, because I knew that you will by introducing GIMATRIKS seriously widen your range of good educational products
I thoroughly learnt you nice web-site and saw even more than one "niche" "Gimatriks" could easily fit into
As we know, Gimatriks" consists of only two basic components: letters and numbers
Kids actually start "finding out" about letters and numbers at an early kindergarten age
Gimatria, connecting letters with numbers, is learnt in the Israeli elementary school, in the second grade, average kids of 7-8 years old
The level of "hardness" starts from almost "insulting" steps like putting the numbers in a row, learning that they "go" from one to ten, "jumping" from ten to hundred in tenth margins, and from hundred to eight-hundred in margins of hundred
The second step is to put the letters in a climbing order row, finding out both the right order of the English letters (in this case), and their logical value based on the ancient gimatria, the concept used both in Greek, Arabic, and Hebrew cultures
Next, kids that just started to learn reading and writing , do not play at first using the "scrabble" part of the game, but find "equations" standing by their own justification, like their name and its value , or even simpler like "c=3"
Like the king of games "CHESS", the hardness levels are no reason to not expose the game to little children, on the contrary
Children , if not teased and shamed, but encouraged, find original ways , what I would call "out of the box" thinking to invent ways to overcome "hardships" the game puts in front of them
For example, the kids gladly "barter" and exchange double letters or numbers they pulled out from the bag, they suggested the blue "equal" tile could be used as "Joker" replacing a letter or a number, something all players have to agree upon, and last but not least, a repeated remark to me was, to double the amount of zeroes In the bag, making the game much easier without influencing it's activating both brains hemispheres.something I will probably adopt
"Gimatriks" has therefor two, not contradicting, "niches": the educational market, quite a stagnated niche, that is eager and thirsty to put in front of the kids not only new types of computing gadgets, but original "out of the screen" quality time sharing tools. "Gimatriks" fits exactly there, and with your reputation, the introduction of such an original game will be, no doubt, very awarding.
The second niche, the retail one, mainly sold in game and toy shops, will be encouraged also by the fact that children will ask their parents to buy it for the family, as they were introduced to it by their math and language teachers, and by their class mates
In any case, as we here celebrate our "Passover" evening tonight, let me wish you and your lovely team a nice "Easter"
