Playing Classcraft

Increases motivation

Teaches meaningful collaboration

Makes learning fun!

Classcraft is a free online, educational role-playing game that teachers and students play together in the classroom. Acting as a gamification layer around any existing curriculum, the game transforms the way a class is experienced throughout the school year.

Our heroes

Here are some of the most courageous Classcraft adventurers we’re seen. You’re why we do what we do!



Classcraft founder and high school physics teacher Shawn Young tapped his unique background in education, gamification, and web development to create an online role-playing game that teachers and students can play together in the classroom. Young joined forces with his father, 35-year business veteran Lauren Young, and brother Devin Young, a creative director with an extensive background in design, branding, social media, and developing and producing websites and web apps. From a belief in the power of game-based learning, the Classcraft team has built a game with real-world risks and rewards. As Shawn says, “Changing motivation changes education."
