Numbers-League Today, we review a math skills game called Numbers League for the iPad. I hesitate to call it educational, because it's so much fun to play that your kid won't realize she is sharpening her arithmetic skills as she adds, subtracts, and multiplies numbers to vanquish super villains. It's $3.99 in the iTunes store. If you're an app developer and would like to have Jane and I try one of your apps for possible review, email a redeem code to appsforkids@boingboing.net.
