Your school might use a filtering system to block websites on their internet connection. These systems use huge lists of ‘blocked’ websites, and if you try access a blocked site you will get refused. Luckily, these filters can struggle to stay up to date.
Here are a list of new games sites that may not be blocked – try them out!
Your school is likely to block the Minecraft website, but there is, potentially, a way around it. Firstly, login to worldofminecraft.com and download the World of Minecraft Client. Put the client file on a portable device, such as a memory pen. Take the device to school, and then run Minecraft through it! If Minecraft appears to be completely blocked, you can search for more ‘indie’ games your school may not be aware of – for example, take a look at http://indiegames.com.
The reason I list this site is because it’s an example of a site that doesn’t contain any ‘buzz’ words in its domain. A school is more likely to block a web address that contains any ‘stop’ keywords such as ‘games’, ‘free games’ and so on. If Zuwix is blocked, try researching lists of gaming sites that do not contain any gaming-related keywords in their domain name, and try them out at school!
3. Cube Arcade
Another trick to access games sites at school is to try searching for newly-established sites that your school’s filters have not picked up yet. Cube Arcade is, possible, an example of such a site. There are numerous sites where people post their new arcade websites for people to try out, such as at talk arcades (http://www.talkarcades.com/site-showcase-reviews/). Just search through the list of threads on the forum, see which users mention any new arcade websites, and then try them out at school!
5. Nobel Prize Educational Games
If you’re struggling to find any normal games websites, consider trying out ‘educational’ game sites such as the one listed above. It may seem like a last resort, but some ‘educational’ out there are actually great fun! Have a look at the Nobel Prize organization’s site and see if any of the games appeal to you. If not, search Google for “educational games” or something similar. You should be able to find games that are technically ‘educational,’ but in a practical sense play like any normal online game.
You should be able to find something at one of those five sites. If not, try these 10 games that are not blocked at school.
