Challenge your mental acuity and test your dexterity with this puzzling game of strategically stacking tiles.
Pieces of the Puzzle
In every game of NMBR 9, players attempt to score the most points by creating their own displays of uniquely shaped number tiles. Tiles on higher levels of your stack score more points, but you must be careful how quickly you build upwards. Without a solid foundation, you’ll quickly run out of space for more valuable tiles. Each of the ten types of number tiles covers a different amount of space and no part of a tile can hang over an edge without anything below it. Properly consider all the factors and cleverly place your tiles to get to the bottom of this intriguing puzzle.
Take it to the Next Level
With just a deck of cards and a pack of number tiles, NMBR 9 presents a unique and varied challenge every time you pay. During each round, a card drawn from the deck determines what number tile you need to place. With only two copies of each of the ten different of cards in the deck, the farther you go into the deck, the better idea you have of what cards are coming. Use all the information available to you and move quickly to build the display worth the most points. There are many solutions to the puzzle at the heart of NMBR 9, but only one of them will win.
