A cooperation game aimed at younglings with age 8+ years, each player is part of a resistence group in a stronghold under assault by never-ending hordes of zombies. Fortunately, help is on the way under the form of an airlift but it will take some time for it to reach them. Till then, they must hold out against the advancing undead army.
And this is where the main mechanics of the game come into play.
Each zombie sports a number on their card, representing the number to match in order for it to be defeated. To that purpose, each player rolls three dice and then, using sums, subtractions, multiplications, divisions, powers and square roots, tries to manipulate the numbers to reach those desired numbers. As an example, imagine a zombie appears with the number 25. You roll the dice and out come a 2, a 4 and 5. Using the five, you multiply it by itself (a power of two) and hit the desired 25. Each die use is removed from the pool (in this case, the die with the 5), leaving the remainder of dice to be used.
You keep the horde back for 15 turns and your group is rescued.
Talking to Matthew, he told me that (fortunately) schools seem to have a keen interest in it, with him performing demonstrations on multiple schools.
