Game-Based Learning

Players can build teams, climb the leaderboard, follow friends, and see all the action on our live feed. Nothing beats a little friendly competition!

Research-Based Mechanics

Our games are based on decades of research on how great learning happens in games. These principles form the backbone of every game we make.

Custom Badges & Content

Give your players a custom badge when they complete your game! (This is great if you want to run a series of games, or an annual game.)

iOS & Android app

Players with Apple (iOS) and Android devices can join the game by downloading the game app to their phones.

Reporting & Analytics

Understand everything that happened in your game. We offer detailed analytics in an engagement report after your game has concluded.

Pricing is up to you!

We've run our games as fundraisers and as free public awareness campaigns. What you charge your players to join your game is completely up to you.
