This advanced 3D expansion to the classic competitive table-top learning game will take you to the next dimension of challenge. With the accompanying physical blocks that must be purchased from blocksrock.com (each player needs a complete set), the app enables players to build complex and fun patterns that will make their brains light up! By merging the physical with the digital, Blocks Rock has entered a whole new world of learning possibilities.
Accuracy is key, and a player only wins the round when the structure is completed successfully. The player with the most points at the end of the game wins!
Play solo, one-on-one, or in teams. Advanced functionality allows for users to connect multiple devices and for teachers to play the role of judge.
In 2016, researchers of the Indiana University Department of Psychological & Brain Sciences conducted a comprehensive study that showed Blocks Rock! to be highly beneficial to STEM learning. This study corroborates with past research that structured block play needs to be a part of every young student's classroom experience. By playing block-building games like Blocks Rock!, students will develop greater spatial reasoning abilities.
Students with greater spatial reasoning abilities will have a higher likelihood of furthering their education and developing future careers in STEM, a field that the United States so desperately needs to improve.
Blocks Rock! can help with color identification, shape identification, hand-eye coordination, math skills, and spatial skills.
Blocks Rock 3D now has an improved interface for users on an iPhone X. Block on!
Ratings and Reviews
We LOVE this game! My 6 year old has so much fun playing the game!
My son loves playing the simple tabletop game and competing with himself on the 3D app. He will play for hours by himself building patterns of the 3D app. We also have SO much fun playing together. I love having this game for him to play, because I know his brain is working and he’s working on those important STEM skills. HIGHLY RECOMMEND for FAMILIES and TEACHERS and LIBRARIANS. Blocks Rock is truly a fun game the whole family can have!
Excellent advanced challenges
We have had a lot of success (and fun) with the classic card patterns that come with the Blocks Rock! package, and it has been really cool to have the students try out these much more advanced 3D cards. The app is simple and stable... kids have a lot of fun working both in competing groups and solo play.
For those who don't know, this is a companion app that requires the physical blocks sold separately online. It's worth it, though. Once you have the blocks, students can play with the included card packs, then graduate to the more advanced app designs. Definitely an asset in developing STEM skills and team building. I would add that the game can be extremely competitive, which makes the kids really enjoy it.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
