Great news: This award was presented to Paxel123 in Brussels , on the Global Safer Internet Day February 11th 2014: Adult non-professional – Paxel 123 games for entertaining, educational games for children in pre-school & primary school; developed by a teacher Anna Margrét Ólafsdóttir from Iceland.http://ec.europa.eu/avservices/photo/photoDetails.cfm?sitelang=en&ref=024961#13
Because of security problems with Java software we have temporarily removed three games. The are: Hidden Words, Lottery of Rhymes and Shape Puzzle. All other games are programmed in Flash. This is temporary, they will be back up again as soon as our programmers have made sure these security problems with the software have been fixed.
Your computer might ask you to update your settings and for a permission to run Java on your computer before playing some games. We are working on a solution to this inconvenience. This applies to three of our eleven games, i.e. those using Java.<
Happy new year 🙂 A new game is now almost ready and will come on the web the very next days. I was playing the game and it´s looking good 🙂 It´s a game with shapes and some magic. Look forward to it very soon 🙂
paxel123.com wishes you all a very Merry Christmas and a happy new year 🙂 Thank you for all the visits in the year 2013 and we look to see you all again in the year 2014. Two new games are coming in January/February so you can look forward to it 🙂 They will also be available for iPad. One of the game is made together with Anna Margret and a group of five year old children and the children have been drawing pictures that will be used in the game 🙂
Our Pattern Game is one of our most popular ones. Now it is available for iPAD. To get the app follow the link below. and please rate it as well. The game costs $2,50. Because paxel123.com is and will always be free and without adds we hope that by making some of the games for iPad money will come to maintain this gamesite 🙂
I´m proud to tell you that very soon the game Pattern will be available for iPad 🙂 We have made the graphic better looking and we look forward to see how this will work out. Two games coming soon here on the web will also be programmed for iPad.
Now you can find the directions for the game “Type words” in all languages but Greenlandic where the directions are in Danish. Translation for Greenlandic will come later. We have started on programming the next game that we call “Magic pictures”. We look forward to that game but there we focus on different shapes and little magic 🙂
A new game is now available. It´s called “type words” It´s not ready in all languages but will be soon. Instructions on how to play the game will be translated to all languages soon but the game is about typing words. In level one there are two and three letter words, four and five letter words in level two. There you can see below the picture how the word is written and you also see the first letter in the word. In level four there are two, three and four letter words, you can see the first letter in each word but nothing else. In some languages there are so few short words that there will only be level two and three
The adding game is now up and running. Just how many ways are the to add up to six and ten? Also, nine of our games are now avaliable in Polish. Please share that information with your Polish friends

More printable worksheets are now available and more coming soon. The adding game with adding to 10 is little later then planned but will be ready very soon. Programming has also started on a new game that is made with help from five year old children and the children have drawn figures that will represent the mouse in the game 🙂 It´s a simple shooting game where you have to shoot down different shapes.
This weekend or early next week the “Adding game” will also have the possibility to add to 10. There are 42 different ways to add to 10 and it is a good extra choice to adding to 6 like you can do now.
I´ve added new worksheets in Icelandic, Danish and English and more are coming the next few days 🙂 For those of you speaking other languages you can use most of the worksheets in your language too. Just read the instructions on English or Danish and then you use them with your children 🙂
