micro:bit projects: Board Game @microbit_edu #microbit #microbitlove #microbitmonday

via micro:bit gadgets

Check out this quick and easy project, made me, Sam (and inspired by this BBC tutorial), which will teach you to use some of Block Editor’s nifty tricks. Replace that boring, plastic, six-sided cube you usually use when playing board games and replace it with your brand new micro:bit!

I’ve even designed a special BBC micro:bit snakes and ladders board for you to print out and use.

This project might appear simple but it will, in fact, teach you important fundamental rules about coding. And, because it uses Block Editor, it’s easy to visualise how the code functions. Once you feel like you’ve got it, why not try and recreate the code using one of the other languages!

For this project you will need:

Project Time:  25 minutes

Skills required: Coding, Craft, Luck
Age: 11+
Difficulty Level: Beginner

  1. As this snakes and ladders gameboard design is not yet available, you can download the CodeBug Snakes and Ladders gameboard released a couple of years ago 😀
