Review based on:
practice of skills and understandings
I've used the "24" game with my students and math club extensively; this is a great alternative that kids can use at home. This version could be even more game-like, and therefore more engaging to students, if there was a specific cell for the students to work out the problem, then press enter to see if they correctly got to 24. If this cell was pre-formatted so the text was as large as the given numbers, it would be an effective whole-class game with a projector.
What math does one need to know to use the resource?

How hard was it for you to learn?
I was initially looking for a specific place to key in my solutions, then realized it wasn't there, or it isn't labelled.
Ability to meet my goals:
Math 5: Operations with numbers, Number sense
Math 6: Operations with numbers, Number sense
Math 7: Operations with numbers, Number sense
Algebra: Integer Operations
