FAQ
How do I assign a question set as homework for students to do on their own?
First, choose a question set by finding one in the Discover tab or creating one in the Create tab and then view it in your Dashboard. Now, click Host on this question set and select Tower of Doom, Factory, Crazy Kingdom, Tower Defense, or Café mode (these modes currently have homework options). Then, click Assign HW and it will walk you through the process. Finally, it will give you a link that students can click to play the game on their own time. All they have to do is click the link, they don't need an account.
How do I share a question set I've created with another teacher?
Navigate to your dashboard and locate the set you would like to share. Then, click/hover over the Gear/Cog icon to the right of the trash can. Once this happens, a few buttons should show up above it. One of them may say Link. If so, click the Link button and it'll copy the link for you to share. If the Link button does not appear, your set is Private and you must click the pencil icon to edit the set, then click Edit Info and change the privacy setting to Public.
How do I host a game?
First, choose a question set by finding one in the Discover tab or creating one in the Create tab and then view it in your Dashboard. Now, click Host on this question set and select a game mode. From there, it will walk you through the process of creating a game. Once this is done, you'll get a Game ID that you can share with students so they can join the game!
How do I change my profile Blook/banner/title on the Stats page?
Just click on the Blook or banner/title that you want to change and it will open a pop up where you can choose a new option! You can unlock new Blooks, banners, and titles in the Market.
Do students need an account to play?
Nope! Only the teacher needs an account. You'll be able to host a game and any student can use the Game ID to join without logging in. However, students who do create accounts will have the ability to unlock new Blooks and track their stats.
How can I debug connection issues?
Before trying anything else, run our debugger at:  https://debug.blooket.com/
This will make sure all images load and you are not blocking any essential services for the live games.
The images/Blooks aren't showing up?
This tends to be an issue with school networks and school-issued devices. The way to get the images to show up is to simply get someone who can edit the school network to unblock res.cloudinary.com and images.unsplash.com. These are the two services that deliver our images, so if they are being blocked then the images will not show up!
I can't login/join a game/host a game?
These errors can occur for a few reasons. The main one is that a Chrome Extension such as an AdBlocker or other service is blocking part of the site's functionality. While we don't run ads, these can still interfere with some parts of the site. Second, if you still can't join or host a game, you may need to make sure firebaseio.com is unblocked on your device. We use this site for part of our backend, so if there is a firewall blocking it you may not be able to use parts of the site (however, this will not affect your ability to log in).
Is this thing free?
Yes! All of our essential features are free! You can create an unlimited number of questions set and host a game with up to 60 people (300 people for Plus members (except Racing and team modes)). If you do want some extra features to enhance your Blooket experience (or just to support us), you can upgrade at https://dashboard.blooket.com/upgrade
How do I hide the notification asking students to create accounts?
After finishing a game, students are asked to create accounts (if they don't already have them) to track their stats and unlock new Blooks. Creating an account is totally optional, but some may not want their students to see this. If you would like to hide this notification, then before you host a game on the Host Settings page (after you select a game mode) uncheck the option that says “Allow Student Accounts” and it won’t show the notification.
