How to Play Numero

Numero is simple to play. Numero, at all levels, has only three rules. These rules govern all levels of play. In junior primary schools Numero is introduced in its simplest form and allows opportunities for students to develop very early number skills, as well as significant early problem-solving skills. Children as young as four have used Numero successfully and the developmental nature of the game allows students to develop to more complex stages at their own rate.
