Code Master – The Ultimate Coding Board Game

December 17, 2019 by Paul Shepard

Make programming fun by learning the basics without a computer! In Code Master, your Avatar travels to an exotic world in search of power Crystals. Along the way, you use programming logic to navigate the Map.

Think carefully, in each level, only one specific sequence of actions will lead to success. Code Master was featured in Purdue University's Engineering Gift Guide.

As you start playing, are given maps showing: l) where your Avatar will start, 2) the Crystal locations, and 3) the location of the Portal to the next level. Using a Guide ScrolI and a specified number of Action Tokens, you'll write a program that powers your Avatar across the map to reach the Portal with all the Crystals in hand.

Only then can your Avatar transport to the next level and harvest the next batch of Crystals.

Once you collect all the Crystals and land at the Portal, you win! Playing Code Master won’t just teach you principles behind programming, you’ll also build planning, sequential reasoning and problem-solving skills.
