I am looking for online games or puzzles which have a mathematical flavor and are suitable for general audiences. A classical example is the online version of Set Card Game. Or this game that has some aspects of graphs.

A related question.


I'm very interested in these as well as physics games. I think they are accessible ways to get students or citizens involved in doing mathematics as mathematicians do it. The following are some of what I have found and collected online with eye towards encouraging reasoning. Stack Exchange wouldn't let me post too many links here, so I collected them in a Tumblr post: http://mathhombre.tumblr.com/post/45269554617/online-games-with-some-math-content

Traditional: Minesweeper and Lights Out.

New, in rough order of how much I like them.


  • Entanglement
  • Grow
  • Animal Mazemaker


  • Refraction
  • Loops of Zen
  • hexxagon
  • Paths
  • Stepping Stones
  • Z-Rox

I'll also mention Robert Abbott's lovely logic mazes, http://www.logicmazes.com/


Poker has some serious mathematical aspects, so I think online poker qualifies.
