Back to School Already? - Back to School - Educational print-and-play STEM games

It’s already Fall! Have you been busy getting ready for a new year of school? New clothes, backpacks, and other supplies have been top topics around here for the last while. But we also have a game design update!

A New Look for Back to School

It’s been 3 years since we launched with “The Bone Game” as one of our first games – designed by our daughter to help make learning the human skeleton more fun. This fast-paced card game has a new card back and background to the card faces. The game play remains just as fun, including all the shouting! 🙂

Check out the new cards in our print-and-play Teachers Edition of “The Bone Game”, along with the human skeleton activity sheets, on our website.

More Educational Print-and-Play Games

We have 20+ games and activities for families with younger children and for elementary classrooms to add to their back-to-school STEM games library. Games like:

  • Chess Attack” (all) – a playful chess-teaching game which emphasizes strategic thinking but without the automatic piece taking – the chess pieces must fight for the right to win a combat.
  • Probability Battleship” (all) – a dice-rolling battleship game where players have the opportunity to see how probability changes each time a ‘hit’ is made.
  • The Royal Three” (4+) – three different mathematically inclined games designed for two players using a deck of regular playing cards.
  • Elemental Minions” (6+) – four games in one that require strategic thinking and utilize basic math for sums and number comparisons while players seek to master their elemental minions.
  • Pirate Ship Paper Craft (7+) – an activity to make a 3D ‘board’ for our dice-roller, “Pirates vs. Skeletons”, but it is also a fun craft in its own right.
  • Target Zer0” (7+) – a straightforward dice-rolling competition where players use a pre-determined set of mathematical operators to construct an equation to produce a result as close to zero as possible.
  • Hotel Escape” (8+) – a dice-rolling race-game using positive and negative numbers where the players are trying to escape a burning hotel as quickly as they can. Choose to play “Classic Edition”, “Zombie Edition”, or “Rescue Edition”.
