Sounds like a challenging and fun way for kids to practice their mathematics. Your English wasn't too bad and I was able to understand the rules fairly clearly. There were a few mistakes here and there but nothing that made it confusing. Is there any other way you could flush this game out to make it a little less random? Perhaps add cards the players can play on each other that make them do another math problem or switches the problem from addition to multiplication? Just a rough idea to help flush it out.

Is a good idea, perhaps, i could ad one kind of square, that allow you to get a game card, to push your opponent to answer your question, or switch like you says, adds by subtraccions and products by divide, and viceverse. is a nice idea to have in mind! Thanks a lot!

This would be a great game for teaching. I agree with it needing some way for players to be able to affect each other though, and maybe even affect themselves. If you did add a deck, what if there were cards that allowed a player to increase the time they are given to solve a problem, or even decrease the time for another player?

that was a nice idea too, affecting the time of to answer the question, changin the question or giving it to your oponent, the only card i will not put in the game could be a " pass " card, because the objetive is for learning, and has no sense to avoid questions :D

Thanks for all the ideas!
