Break Out Boxes: Design a Game


Game Design

Design your own game for your students!


Game design tips from Breakout EDU:

  • Most games are best played with 8-12 players; 2 kits per class, with the two boxes setup on different sides of the classroom, and teams sharing and interacting.
  • Create a compelling story to introduce the game
  • Include clear instructions
  • Determine which locks the game will use
  • Limit printables that will impact prep time; save as PDF files
  • Try to create puzzles that can be used many times
  • Use one Google Drive folder to store everything for the game
    • Consider PDF formats, or force others to make a copy of originals
  • Include reflection questions
