The Engare is a math-based design game that encourages consumers to become familiar with numbers in order to create intricate patterns inspired by Islamic architecture. The designs feature repetition in curved, swirled and circular shapes to create beautifully colorful and symmetrical designs using mathematics.

Many consumers shy away from the notion of math because it can seem to be complicated and overwhelming. The Engare game engineered by Mahdi Bahrami presents numbers in an approachable way by teaching users how algorithms can be used to create interactive visual patterns. The game features a variety of levels in which consumers are instructed to complete a pattern by mimicking its shape using numbers. As the levels increase, the patterns become significantly more detailed turning into beautiful mosaics.
