Karla says, “The Bloxels kit is made up of two main components: 1) the 13×13 plastic design board with little cubes of various colors, and 2) the downloadable Bloxels game app. Bloxels is a complete game in and of itself, with no building or designing necessary to actually play it. However, the building and designing options are what makes this game unique.” Read the rest of the review at Roads to Everywhere.

Alicia says, “I cannot even believe I’m saying this, but my new favorite toy of 2016 is a game–a video game. Yep, I said it. The mom who reeeeaaaaaalllly doesn’t like gaming is writing about a game…that she loves. Bookmark this one. Technically isn’t not really a game. But you make a game, which is even cooler.

I wasn’t ready to look it over yet but I decided to let them take the reigns and just go for it. Which is what they did.” See what they thought at So Every Day.
MaryAnne says, “My kids were super excited when they found out that Timberdoodle had sent us Bloxels: Build Your Own Video Game to review.
