I'm looking for games my daughter can either play by herself or with me as part of math to practices her multiplication facts. We've done multiplication war, but would like some other options. I want something with mixed fact practice (so not something that focuses on a single times table at a time). I also don't want a computer game or app,

- Yahtzee (or Triple Yahtzee) -- works with multiplying sets of die numbers (1-6) x 3 or 4 (most frequently), plus adding up of dice totals

Activity Book -- workbook/puzzles/activities/games to practice multiplication facts:

Other math fact helps:

I really like Blockout, and the kids in my classes enjoy it: 


I've generally tried to use games that actually illustrate multiplication, and don't only drill the facts, which is why I really enjoy Blockout. 

Also, have you seen Prime Climb? It's a game by the people who made the Math for Love website I linked, and it's really pretty good. Not, like, the best game ever, but fun enough, and LOTS of math content.

Have you seen the Multiplication Facts that Stick unit study here on Well Trained Mind.   It's game based (4 similar games played every week after a short lesson...you can just use the games but the lessons are good too).

There's also some printable multiplication game here:

And Kingdomino is fun but generally only deals with smaller multiplication problems.
