The games are all designed to be played with a partner learning to take turns and manage self.
Students are learning to read and follow instructions. They are learning to respond to texts presented in a variety of formats.
It is this distributed practice, repeated practice of the division facts over time, in multiple different scenarios that eventually helps a student to lodge the facts in his/her long term memory. These games are intended to be another scenario different from on-line practice.
As basic facts are stored in verbal memory, interacting verbally with a partner about division while playing is beneficial.
