Potato Pirates - Screenless Coding Card Game

Potato Pirates is a card game that teaches coding skills to kids aged 6 and up. They are currently raising funds on Kickstarter and doing rather well. The project is already fully funded and it looks awesome.

Lots of people are trying to find creative ways to teach kids to code! Potato Pirates is doing it through a screenless, family-focused, card game. You play the game as a potato pirate with ships and a crew and you win by collecting 7 cards hidden on the deck. You use control cards to power up your attacks. Throughout the game, you learn computer programming concepts like loops, conditionals, if-else, functions, boolean statements and more.

Codomo is the company behind the card game and their mission is to give more students access to learning coding skills and make it fun, sociable and impactful. "It teaches anyone age 6 & up, 10 hours worth of programming concepts in 30 minutes, all without a computer!"
