    coolmathgames.com is categorized as Educational Institutions, not as Games.
    https://domain.opendns.com/coolmathgames.com
    You add coolmathgames.com to your "always block" list.

    "will be blocked on Safari, but not on Chrome."

    Ensure that you disabled the Data Saver add-on in Chrome.

    You can block the Google games sites by adding sites.google.com to your blacklist, same as weebly.com if you want to have this blocked.

    Dear @rotbliyz,

    Thank you for responding. So I blocked Educational Institutions but coolmathgames.com was still accessible through both Google Chrome and Safari. I also put sites.google.com and weebly.com on my blacklist, but nothing worked. Could you give me any other options?

    Oh, I am sorry. Actually it was www.coolmath-games.com... That hyphen makes a big difference! But when I search up https://www.coolmathgames.com/, the website shows up.

    If you want settings changes to take effect immediately, you must clear your two local caches, else you will be served out of them.

    And yes, you must enter domains exactly as they are spelled, but ideally without the www. subdomain prefix, else only the www subdomain is being blocked.

    Yes, this is what I said already.  Not sure why you repeat it...
