A game mode to suit every need

Single player

Garage – the questions will only come from the times tables the teacher has set for the week. It will include multiplication and division questions. As pupils start to answer questions, TT Rock Stars works out which facts they take longer on and will give them more of these questions to answer. The Garage is best for getting quicker at a few facts. Players get 10 coins per question.

Studio – the questions in the Studio can be anything from 1×1 up to 12×12. TT Rock Stars calculates the mean response time from their last 10 games in the Studio and translates that time into a Rock Status.

  • Less than 1 second per question = Rock Hero
  • Less than 2 second per question = Rock Legend
  • Less than 3 second per question = Rock Star
  • Less than 4 second per question = Headliner
  • Less than 5 second per question = Support Act
  • Less than 6 second per question = Breakthrough Artist
  • Less than 7 second per question = Unsigned Act
  • Less than 8 second per question = Gigger
  • Less than 9 second per question = Busker
  • Less than 10 second per question = Garage Rocker
  • Less than 11 second per question = Wannabe

Players earn 1 coin per question and the Studio is the place for them to set their best time across all the tables.

If you click on your avatar icon in the top right of the screen and then click My Stats, a heatmap like the one below will load. It shows how successful your child is at each of the facts. At Malvern, we monitor our heat maps regularly and target gaps to reach Gone Green status.

When you play Soundcheck, you get 20 questions each with a 5-second time limit. The questions are multiplication only and evenly weighted in terms of difficulty each time you play. Players earn 5 coins per correct answer.


Rock Arena – The Arena allows players to compete against all other members of their Band (their Bandmates would need to join the same game in order to compete together). A new Arena game starts every 15 seconds and once the clock starts they race to answer more questions than the others. In the Arena, questions will only come from the times tables the teacher has set for the week, similar to the Garage. They earn 1 coin per correct answer.

Rock Festival – The Rock Festival games are open to players from around the world. Like the Arena, there is no limit to the number of players who can join a game; however, unlike the Arena, questions are selected at random from 1×1 to 12×12. Pupils might choose the Rock Festival if they were playing at home (and therefore couldn’t easily synchronise playing against a classmate) or wanted to compete against others not in their Band. They earn 1 coin per correct answer.
