Addition always rounds up to the next odd number, even when the odd number is in the tens place as evidenced by 11+11=33.
Subtraction does the opposite. 9-3=5.

Still two operands though?

?

There is still multiplication and division.

It seems that a design by committee isn't the best method for creating actually playable games.

### Re: Math without even numbers?

Basically, in this kind of math, the universe hates even numbers. Yet it still uses base 10 (an even base)? In odd bases, though, there are numbers that odd but end in an even digit... on the other hand, in odd bases, if you have an odd number where all the digits are odd, then there's an odd numbe...

### Re: Math without even numbers?

So if you're going by digits (since you're disallowing e.g. 23), and treating 0 as odd, then does that mean that you're treating 10 (and 30, 50, 100, 37050, etc.) as odd? (In which case, it's actually, math without numbers containing the digits 2, 4, 6, 8?) Oh, *smacks forehead* right. 0 is even. B...
