Bloxels Classroom Packs are shipping now!

Can I pay with a purchase order?
Yes, if you have an established purchase order system please click the button below to get started.
How many gameboards do I need for my classroom?
We generally recommend one gameboard per student, although an extra gameboard will allow the student to build faster. Because the gameboard can be cleared and used over and over, even for the same game, the student will not be limited by having only one gameboard, and sharing a gameboard works as well.
Classroom 10, 15 and 20 packs are available for purchase at a discount over buying single box sets.
How many devices do I need for my classroom?
Students working in groups should have a single device per group, this keeps them focused on building together as a group. A second device can be useful for testing games while being developed, but is not necessary.
