How many Bloxels Gameboards do I need for home use?
We generally recommend one Gameboard per player, although an extra Gameboard will allow the player to build faster. Because the Gameboard can be cleared and used over and over, even for the same game, the creator will not be limited by having only one Gameboard, and sharing a Gameboard works as well.
For classrooms, students working in groups should have a Gameboard for each student and a single device per group.
Team Builder packs (5 total Gameboards) and extra expansion packs are available for purchase at a discount over buying single box sets.
What are the specifications of the Bloxels Gameboard and blocks?
The 13x13 Bloxels Gameboard is 10.25" x 10.25" x 0.5" and is made of ABS plastic (similar to LEGOs). The blocks (made from the same material) are 1cm cubes and are safe for children 3+. The Gameboard and packaging are manufactured and assembled in Shenzhen, China.
Why is the Gameboard on a 13x13 grid?
We considered Gameboard size, block size, and even vs. odd block numbers when deciding the best size for Bloxels. Ultimately we wanted to make sure the blocks were choking safe (they are safe for 3+), the Gameboard would fit in most backpacks (it does) and we really wanted a "middle point" on the Gameboard (which it has).
