Now children, remember, don't try this at home. And never, never, never play with fire!

Ah, it's fun! If only I could have learned to count like this ...

Like always, and like I always say, a brilliant job.

### Re: One for the young'uns: Fireworks counting

Can someone help me out with the 3rd level?

Good game.  I suggest more complex levels, perhaps going all the way to the hundreds or higher.

Or alternatively, different rules.

Once one has completed the game.

We could have things like

√23, 263/55, 5-(1/5), 1/0.21, 3π/2

### Re: One for the young'uns: Fireworks counting

I (eventually) want to make lots of games like "fireworks" for Kinder, 1 and 2. Things with cars and dogs and cats, etc.

I will have a separate index of them, but what should I call the collection? "Primary Games" "Elementary Games" "MathKids" ... they seem rather boring titles.

### Re: One for the young'uns: Fireworks counting

Here is another one I just finished: Counting Bugs

Go on ... challenge yourself!

Any ideas for what to call the collection? "Young Mathematics" ?

Did about 300 or so to test for bugs, none found.

Very good game.

### Re: One for the young'uns: Fireworks counting

300, and no bugs? Is that a bug?
