Which games aren’t blocked at school? With the increasing sophistication of school internet filters, it’s becoming harder and harder to answer that question, especially since blocked games vary from school to school.
However, some kinds of games are much less likely to get blocked than others. Here’s a list of ten games you should try out!
Sudoku puzzles might sound boring, but they’re worth trying out to see if you like them. There are almost certainly going to be some Sudoku sites not blocked by your school – have a search on Google and try some of the sites it lists.
3. IQ Tester
Are you always arguing with your friends over which one of you is the smartest? Try out this game to see which one of you is correct!
4. Medical School
This game lets you step into the world of medical science! Your school might let this game through the filter since it will demonstrate some educational value.
5. Food Fight
Food Fight is a game produced by Brain Pop, a site for educational games. Food Fight is just an example of one of their games your school may not block. Many of the games are good fun, containing action and strategy.
Want a simple game of hangman? Like Minesweeper, Hangman does not require flash and is often powered by Java Script, meaning it’ll be easy to search for and unlikely to be blocked by your school!
7. Save the Paintings
Another game with an ‘educational’ value! If you like puzzle games, you’ll enjoy this – you have to drag together pieces of a canvas to make the full painting.
Here’s another puzzle game. The aim of this one is to make words by putting blocks together, but this is essentially a puzzling, strategic game, so don’t think it’ll be completely boring and educational!
Tetris is one of the most famous games in the world, and it is available on the internet in abundance. Type ‘Tetris’ into Google. You’re almost guaranteed to find at least one Tetris site your school doesn’t block, simply because there will be so many of them.
Minecraft is a great free game you can play at school. If you can’t access the Minecraft website at school, you can download a dedicated client for the game at worldofminecraft.com at home, and run it off a memory pen (or some other storage device) at school.
