Product Description:

Hacker goes beyond most programming games, with a three-phase game that challenges players to code a program, then attempt to hack their program, and finally secure their program to avoid cyberattacks! The puzzle is made up of a gameboard with rotating platforms, a “control panel” card, a challenge booklet with 40 coding simulations, movement and transaction tiles, tokens to place on the gameboard and a solution booklet (with each phase of the coding simulation located in a separate area). The challenge booklet provides an outline of how the gameboard pieces will rotate, and where to place tokens initially. You must design a program to ensure that the agent token can navigate through the gameboard, pick up the data files and then exit. In phase 2, you look for weaknesses in your program and try to alter it so that the agent reaches the virus token instead of the data files. In Phase 3, you place security measures in place to prevent hacking. Kids who are interested in programming or tricky logic puzzles will love the multi-phase puzzles. Because there are no actual digital elements, you can play anywhere – with no screen time! ~ Jess
