Block Google Search Games
We are having a lot of issues with kids playing the games that you can play simply by doing a Google search (Snake, Pacman, etc.). However, if you block the url that comes up when the students search for these, it blocks ALL Google searches. Because these games are embedded in the page, it makes it impossible to keep students off of them other than by playing close the tab all day long. I know this is probably something that will never be fixed because it's really a Google thing, but I have to try to bring this to someone's attention. As the only IT guy in the school my email gets blown up about this daily.

We have the same issues and I would love a solution to this problem too. If anyone finds one, please let the rest of us know.

I have not been able to confirm this as it is the weekend and I am not our district's IT Specialist, just a teacher who uses scenes quite a bit, but I have read that if we block
then the games just don't work. I will try to confirm on Monday if this works.
Edit: It does not work.
I need the same answers. Students get around the blocked sites simply by using google games. I tried using *games or games* and it simply does not stop the games.
