BREAKOUT EDU GAMES QUESTIONS

What ages are the games for? 

There are games for players as young as 6 all the way through adults. We also publish templates and resources to help people design their own games. 

How many people can play with a single kit?

Each game has a different number of recommended players and age group. Some games are designed for large groups (20-30), while most are designed for small groups (8-12). Many teachers choose to have multiple kits so that they can break their class up into 2-3 groups and play one of the games designed for a smaller groups. Others use Breakout EDU as a station or classroom center activity. We believe that small group experiences where each player gets to interact and make attempts to open the locks is what makes Breakout EDU such a powerful experience.   

How do I get the password for the games? 

All games are password protected to prevent players from looking up solutions while they play. The password comes with each purchase and is shipped inside each kit. If you want to get a head start, once you order the kit, you can sign up for the current password at BreakoutEDU.com/register

Can I create my own games?

Of course! Creating your own games for Breakout EDU is part of the fun. You can use our official template at BreakoutEDU.com/create to get started.
