# Introduction to MELENCOLIA

**Quxacto International Games has spent years of research to bring you these math-based games. Our MELENCOLIA games have revolutionized the way students learning and practicing mathematics. Finally, a strategy board game designed specifically for the purpose of practicing maths is now available for students, parents and educators. We hope teachers will use MELENCOLIA to supplement their STEM teaching curriculum; students will enjoy the games while improving their analytical and cognitive learning skills; and parents will be able to realize the mathematical potential of their children. Our MELENCOLIA Players Manuals are freely downloadable for all existing game owners and you can browse our website for more information. Please read our brief introductions of each game below:**

**Triple-Sum-Assault** **is a fast pace arithmetic pattern matching game for 2 to 4 players. You are to create lines of three connected discs on the Qu-MAT with sums equal to a special set of consecutive integers. You can build the "line of 3" in horizontal, vertical and diagonal orientation. In this multiplayer strategy game, players will be able to train their mental arithmetic skill while solving a"cross-number" puzzle at the same time.**

**Mystic Stacker** **is a game for all audiences. It combines the elements of blackjack, poker, ludo, mental arithmetic, memory and deduction. To increase your chance of winning, you will need to outsmart your opponents with good memory, luck and bluffing skills.**

**Thirty Sum Think!** **is a game of intense player concentration. The increased demand on mental arithmetic skill makes this game a bit more difficult. The connected group of 4 discs can linked together adjacent in any combination of horizontal, vertical and diagonal positions. Players will need more time to think before and after placing a disc on the Qu-MAT.**

**Triginta Genus** **is a math puzzle race. This is a real-time mental arithmetic race among players. Your fast reaction time in solving the numerical puzzle on the Qu-MAT will put you in the first place.**

**Ketten Max** **is a movement strategy game based on addition. Not only you need to do addition and to guess on the hidden numbers, you will also need to plan your moves to win.**

**Match Up 17** **is a math game for children. Your goal is to find a pair of number discs which adds up to a sum of 17. This game trains your memory and simple arithmetic. We've included rules for a more difficult version of this game for advance player. **

**Prime-A-Pair** **is a strategy game based on simple prime number generation. To win, you must observe both the exposed discs and the hidden discs on the Qu-MAT to create more prime pairs.**

**Eyes to Eyes** **is a simple strategy puzzle game. Players can change the outcome of the puzzle based on the cyclic property of each number's binary representation. Winning the game requires careful manipulation of each number disc. It is not as simple as it may seem.**

**Magic Link Go - Three in A Row and Quadrilaterals** **are based on the concept of anti-magic square integrating into a 3x3 puzzle challenge. In "Three in A Row", you will be playing Tic-Tac-Toe using the property of anti-magic square. In "Quadrilaterals", you will be building a quadrilateral inside the 3x3 grid. These games demand mental arithmetic as well as pattern formation using duo layer strategy. **

**Magic Slider** **is a game beyond puzzle solving. Your objective is to move each number into their designated locations while competing for the highest score. You will definitely sharpen your visual scanning ability.**

**Arithmetic Warlords** **is the ultimate mathematics war game. You will need to launch your attacks with mathematical formulas using your number pawns. Don't underestimate your enemy as they may surprise you in future battles. Your mental arithmetic and strategic planning are tested in this game.**

**Nummerfest** **is a game for those who love crunching numbers. Your objective is to eat as many numbers off the table as possible and to force your opponents to eat the scraps.**

**Eyes on Paths** **is a strategic planning game of which players must make the best moves to win. Each player's move will affect the subsequent moves.**

**Tit-for-Tat** **is the perfect math game for all ages and especially for kids learning negative number arithmetic. Players have two layers of objectives to achieve within a given set of numbers. This game demonstrates the popular gaming theory called "tit-for-tat."**

**Tug of Sum** **is the mathematically equivalent game to the physical game - "Tug of War." Besides mental arithmetic, strategic placement is the essence of this game.**

**Number Mines** **is no ordinary guessing game. Players are required to perform mental arithmetic, visual mapping, short term memory, and strategic placement at the same time.**

**Serial Linker** **is a one of a kind strategy game based on the concept of simple number series. Your task is to build a sequence of 4 consecutive integers on the Qu-MAT. You will need to master the art of number manipulation against your opponent. **

**Binary Foe** **is a pattern matching game that requires logical reasoning and some luck. The more you use your logical reasoning ability, the more lucky guesses you will have.**

**Toll Positions** **is a non-math strategy game solely based on logical placement strategy. You will need to build your own portion of the maze in order to claim your fortune. Your opponents will try to grab your share of the fortune wherever it is possible.**

**Feudal Magic** **is a placement strategic math game that requires in-depth thinking as well as mental arithmetic. **

**Deceits** **is a challenging game for all ages focusing on logical thinking and visual deceptions. **

**Swivel Pass** **is a competitive movement game of maze formation based on binary logic.**

**Cyclic Bits** **is the advance version of Eyes-to-Eyes based on two bit binary logic.**

**Magic Defuser** **is "bust-or-pass" strategy game based on mathematics inferences. **

**Magic Sums of Four** **is an intense goal-seeking game based on mental arithmetic.**

**Evens And Odds** **is a numerical guessing game based on the addition of even and odd numbers.**

**Fractional War** **requires players to exercise their understanding of fractions, the use of lowest common denominator method for value comparison, and logical placement strategy.**

**Product Fights** **is an interesting strategy game based on the multiplication table of values between 1 to 16. **

**Eye Opener** **is a matching game based on cyclic binary patterns with the option to include addition for advance players.**

**Winning Streak is an unique game to challenge your mental multiplication, logic, and probability analysis skills.**

**Guesstimatrix is a simple game of number guessing using simple logic.**

**Feudal Magic Swap is a dynamic puzzle game of number solving through swapping or moving.**

**Lockstepper is an easy but challenging game of base capture with both logic and luck.**

**Make a Difference is an exciting math game based on simple subtraction. It will boost your analytic thinking skills.**

**Octet Ruler is a game which players will try to match 8 different sums on the Qu-MAT through swaps and moves.**

**Sum More Sum Less is an "in situ" speculation game of 8 sums on the Qu-MAT.**

**Risky Guesser is a simple game of guessing your opponents' hidden number through their movement cues and clues.**

**Magic Skewer is a speedy game to improve the players' quick observation skill and mental arithematics.**

**Quardo Durado is the advance version of the original "Hidden Flush" game in which the players will continue to play the game through swapping two adjacent discs.**
