Build as many valid equations as possible
E-PAK can be played using physical tiles or on PC/MAC or mobile (under development) versions of the game. The game starts with a given set of tiles distributed or displayed on the screen. The objective is to build as many valid equations as possible using only the given tiles.
Number Tiles. Each player can draw unlimited copies of the given number tiles. For example, if the given set is 1, 4, 5, 8, the player can draw as many copies of these numbers as needed.
Function Tiles. Each player is allowed to draw additional function tiles, for immediate use only.
Game Duration. Players agree on the duration of the game.
Winner. A winner is the player that builds the longest equation using only the tiles present in the initial tile set. To resolve possible tie-ups, a player with the biggest number of unique equations is a winner.
The entry E-PAK game sets include only addition and subtraction and are intended for younger players.
The intermediate E-PAK game sets are based on short arithmetic equations that can include basic arithmetic operations and symbols: addition, subtraction, multiplication, division and parentheses.
The advanced E-PAK tile game sets are created from number and symbol tiles expressing unique algebraic or arithmetic equations.
