CodeWeavers and Wizard101!

Wizard101 and Codeweavers have been working together for years to bring the magic of the Spiral to players on Mac computers.  So when they posted the “Top 3 Reasons We Let Kids of CodeWeavers Play Wizard101” on the CodeWeavers blog, we had to share!

A few of us at the CodeWeavers Ranch have been playing…er…testing… Wizard101 since 2011. Since the beginning of our
“testing” of Wizard101, an exclusive group (those of us with kids) has happily introduced our children to the game. So when I was asked to write a blog post about our upcoming promotion with Wizard101, it was only natural for
me to write about why us parents love Wizard101.

1.) Reading, Math, and Creativity – Oh My!
Wizard101 is not a game that was designed specifically to teach math or reading skills, but a side effect of the game is its educational value. With over 50,000 lines of text in Wizard101, players are constantly exercising their reading skills to complete quests. While technically not a math game either, math and reasoning skills are improved as players learn how
to solve problems, reason out solutions, and figure out which combination of spells are needed in a given situation. 

Perhaps most importantly, Wizard101 nurtures creativity. While Wizard101 is not technically an art game, it has inspired thousands of pages of creative stories written by players as well as art submissions sent to the KingsIsle office. A game like Wizard101 can ignite a future passion for computer programming, digital art, and engineering.

2.) Sustains Relationships when Distance is Involved
Instead of just chatting with relatives through Skype or Facebook, why not play a game with them? Wizard101 can encourage stronger connections with friends and family from afar. Wizard101 gives children the opportunity to play a game with grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins that are spread out across the country. Grandparents and grandchildren can meet and play online, using the in-game chat to catch up on daily life and do fun quests together.

3.) Teamwork
Many of the quests can eventually be completed solo, but Wizard101 makes it possible to team-up in many different ways. Playing together can be a lot of fun too! Call your friends to action, wait near the sigil or press the “Team Up” button to join a group. You can complete quests faster and have a much more rewarding time playing in a group.

    I love Wizard101 but I’m not a member and can’t go to any of the paid areas. So I’m missing a huge part of the game, making it boring and all.. I really want a membership and some crowns..
