Drench is a highly addicting, entertaining problem-solving game for players of any age. The concept is straightforward: use the buttons to change the colors in the square and drench the square with one color within the prescribed number of moves to complete the game. Each game begins with the square in the top left-hand side of the large square. Click on one of the colors in the circles next to the square that touches the starting piece. Continue expanding the block of colors to fill in the large square with one color. Upon successful completion, move to a different level that becomes more challenging by offering fewer opportunities to drench the square.

tag(s): brain (55), classroom management (128), game based learning (173), logic (165), problem solving (225), social and emotional learning (83)

In the Classroom

Add Drench to your resources to share with students for quick brain-break activities that encourage problem-solving through gameplay.
