When the treasures of a small Tibetan village are stolen, the villagers believe it was the work of the yeti. The abbot believes differently and calls upon Joni Savage, Santiago Rivera, Leslie Clark and Owen Lam -- the ClueFinders! Their mission is to travel through the village solving math problems and gathering clues from the villagers. Once all clues are in hand, they tell the abbot which item was stolen, the identity of the thief, and where it was hidden. Retrieving all 24 items lets the user determine the mastermind behind the entire mystery and bring the perpetrator to justice.
Set high in the Himalayas, ClueFinders: Math Adventures encourages learning in a wide variety of math skills including addition, subtraction, multiplication and division, data evaluation, fractions and decimals, equivalents, comparisons, charts and tables, bar and line graphs and pictographs. Intended for the 9-12 age group, it also includes word problems and introductory geometry (area and perimeter, figures and shapes, angles and lines, space, prism and pyramids), as well as nine games and activities with ten levels of difficulty.
A "Real World Adventure Kit" offers a mapmaker, adventure logbook, encoder/decoder, money tracker, club kit for setting up personal clubs, and a sound transformer that allows players to use their own voice (microphone required).
A bonus game, ClueFinders: Mystery Mansion Arcade, is also included. ~ Lisa Karen Savignano, All Game Guide
