Why order games for your school?
School is the most immersive environment from which children learn to interact with one another. Creating opportunities for safe, inclusive, constructive play gives children a healthy venue through which to develop a huge range of social skills. While stimulating creativity and critical thinking, games also help establish teamwork, confidence, empathy, communication skills and trust. In addition, educational gameplay can be easily worked into the curriculum as a highly effective support tool.
The game packages we offer are carefully chosen to provide to the needs of the classrooms and the extra-curricular venues while engaging the interests of school students.
Game club kits
Recess Kit: A focus on quick, puzzle-themed games with a broad age range and wide appeal.
Strategy Club: A selection of challenging 2 player and multiplayer games with an emphasis on advancing strategic thinking.
Dungeons & Dragons Club: Roleplaying games are highly effective in helping to develop communication skills, math competency and the ability to make wise choices. We encourage middle schools to consider making a D&D club available for interested students at lunch or after school. We will provide the starter kit including dice and necessary books, run an introductory campaign, and train one of the students as a dungeon master so the group can continue independently.
Library Upgrade: Having a relevant and modern selection of games available for use within your school is a resource that will prove its value daily. Like books, games are an effective tool for learning, with the additional benefit of encouraging healthy social interaction. We work with your school to customize a game package to fit your specific school needs and budget.
