Hack my Password

Hack my Password – AD sent for review and giveaway

disclosure:  we were sent the item mentioned for the purpose of review and giveaway

As you all are well aware, my nearly eleven-year-old is a very reluctant reader and writer so I have to look at encouraging him in any way possible.  We were recently asked if we’d like to look at the Tactic Games Hack my Password, I thought it might just help on both fronts as well as being a bit of fun.

Hack my Password

The game is aimed at players aged eight years and over and can be played as a two-player game or in two teams.  play times typically lasts for around twenty minutes.  Hack my Password comes with a game board, two firewalls, fifty playing cards, two card order tokens, two word split tokens, two question mark playing pieces, two whiteboard markers, a sponge and instruction leaflet.

The aim of the games is to crack your opponent’s firewall and decode their password or be the first player to reach the finish line on the playing board.

Place both question mark playing pieces on the start.  Each player picks up two playing cards and creates their password on their firewall based on the prompts provided.

Then encrypt your password and you’re ready to play. Make sure you encrypt each word separately rather than totally jumbling up all the letters and put a mark against the last letter of the first word and first letter of the second.

For an easier version of game-play in Hack my Password you could play without encrypting your password, and we’ve had fun playing both versions.  Then place your password hint cards face up on the table for your opponent to see.

Players then take it, in turn, to guess letters in their opponent’s password.

Guess correctly then your opponent lifts the relevant firewall door for any matching letters and you can try to guess the password.  If you guess one of the two words then your opponent must tell you.

If you don’t guess correctly your opponent gets to move one space on the playing board.

You do need to read all of the rules for Hack my Password as it doesn’t really explain the use of the word split and card order tokens unless you do.  We’d played the first game without making use of these tokens at all. you can move these tokens to different playing positions on the board to raise or lower the difficulty of the game depending on the age of the players.

I do like the idea of having different levels of gameplay to increase the longevity of the game, and Hack my Password is a fun way to get children thinking about their spellings without realising it.
