If you don't like broccoli, it's really hard to cook a broccoli dish other people are gonna like. That's how you end up with the apocryphal “chocolate covered broccoli” in educational game design. If you think math is essentially boring, the best solution to get people excited about math is by adding something NOT exciting on top of it.
On the other hand, if you actually enjoy math, if you see the beauty in puzzles and how things fit together and using it to express truths… then there's no need to add anything to it. You just want to shine a light on what's already there.
Your light needs to work properly, but it's so much easier to get people excited about something you already love than add excitement to something you don't. It's pushing downhill vs uphill.
Push downhill. Find what you love about your problem and show it to people.
