What's Your Question?

Where to Purchase PowerPoint

PowerPoint software is used to create slideshows, and it’s part of the Microsoft Office Suite. You can buy it as part of the Office Suite or as a standalone product. It’s available for purchase directly from Microsoft, brick-and-mortar retailers or online shops.

Buying PowerPoint From Microsoft

If you’re interested in purchasing PowerPoint directly from Microsoft, go to the Microsoft PowerPoint web page and read through the description and terms. You can read the overview to make sure it’s what you want, the system requirements to make sure your device can handle running the program and reviews to see what other users think of the software program.

Free PowerPoint Templates

While you typically can’t find the PowerPoint program for free, you can find many different free PowerPoint templates to use when creating your presentations. Some marketing companies make free versions of templates for PowerPoint slides available, and you can also go directly to the Microsoft Office website to select free PowerPoint slide templates to use in your presentations.

Price Comparisons

You can sometimes get a better price on an Office subscription, which includes PowerPoint, by buying it from a reliable third-party retail store or website rather than by going directly to the Microsoft website to get it, according to TechRadar. This applies whether you’re in the market for Microsoft Office 365 or an older version of the software, such as Microsoft Office 2016.


One thing that’s changed about the Microsoft Office Suite of tools, such as PowerPoint and Word, is that it’s no longer on a disk you buy and install in your computer. It’s now a subscription-based program that you pay for on a yearly basis, though you may be able to arrange to make monthly payments if you buy directly from Microsoft. Prices are typically based on a one-year subscription for use on one device, according to TechRadar.

Office 365 Advantages

If you buy Microsoft Office 2016, you still pay for the software once, but there are also some advantages to buying the Office 365 program. The newest version comes with 1 TB of cloud storage called OneDrive. This provides a way to store a lot of data without filling up the hard drive in your computer or mobile device. You can also access your work from anywhere when it’s stored in the cloud. This is handy if you’re proofreading something at the last minute and need to make changes. For example, if you created an important presentation at home on your computer and caught an embarrassing typo while waiting to give your presentation, you can make quick changes from your mobile device.

The 10 best PowerPoint Games to play in Workshops, Classrooms & Presentations

01.01.20   •  #fun #game #powerpoint #presentation.

In our last blog post, we talked about tools and tips on how to boost the audience engagement in your presentation. One of our recommended ways to do so was to play games, as they release tension and function as a fun element that lightens the mood. That’s why today we are going to list the Top 10 best games to play in your presentation.

1. Would you rather

Is it a game that everyone knows already? Probably. But did we have to include it on the list because it is just perfect for playing with your audience? Definitely. The game is pretty much self-explanatory – You give your attendees two (or more) scenarios and they have to choose which one they’d rather experience. Combining the Would you rather – question with your presentation topic is usually very easy, but we also thought of some questions you could use for any topic (e.g. as an icebreaker, to get to know your audience a little better, to ask about their opinion or just as a fun element in between). You can let your audience vote by letting them raise their hands or by using an interactive poll tool such as SlideLizard .

  • Would you rather A. travel back in time OR B. travel to the future OR C. stay in the present
  • Would you rather A. have a long lunch break now OR B. have a short break and finish early
  • Would you rather A. be able to read minds OR B. be able to fly OR C. be able to turn invisible
  • Would you rather A. receive a letter from Hogwarts OR B. join Frodo on his journey OR C. Hog-what?
  • Would you rather A. never be able to go on Social Media again B. never be able to read a book again

2. Charades

The popular game is not only great for your family’s game-night, but also for your presentations and workshops. Prepare a few cards that have words related to your presentation’s topic on them, let some volunteers in your audience draw and act them out. The rest of the audience has to guess the word. You can be sure that these terms and the associated performances will never be forgotten!

cool powerpoint games

Small Trivia quizzes are perfect for checking and manifesting the audience’s knowledge at the end of your presentation. Instead of repeating and summing up what you have already said, you can let your participants test their knowledge right away. However, you can also use a quiz in the beginning to test your audience’s existing knowledge about a topic. But there are not only trivia quizzes: Questions about personality can also be interesting and work well as an ice breaker in the beginning. Again, we recommend a tool for poll creation, as that is the easiest way to conduct quizzes. In a recent article we listed 50 great questions (a mix of personality and trivia) , that you could use for your next presentation! And if you're a fan of quiz game shows, we also got a full Who wants to be a Millionaire PowerPoint template for you to download for free! You'll see how it looks like in the following video (be sure to turn up your sound!):

PowerPoint can be used for way more than most people know. Even we were amazed by people on the internet who created extensive games by animating content using PP. We don’t want to go that big today, but we are going to provide you with a free-to-download template of memory. You only have to add it to your presentation and customize the pictures or terms you want under the cards. Download free PPT Memory Template

5. Two Truths and a Lie

Here is another game that is just perfect when you play it with interactive poll tools. It is great for getting the audience to know you as a presenter better. Think of a fun, interesting or astonishing fact about yourself, and then invent two fake ones. Your attendees have to vote which statement they think is true. Be prepared to see some very surprised faces in your audience!

6. PowerPoint Karaoke

PowerPoint-Karaoke is the perfect improvisation game. Players are confronted with a set of slides they have never seen before and try to give a presentation as convincingly as possible. If you want to know all about this game and get some slides you can use for playing, check out our detailed blog post on PowerPoint-Karaoke .

7. Where do you stand?

For the game “Where do you stand?”, your attendees will actually have to stand up. Therefore, it is only convenient if you have enough space. If you want to get your participant’s opinion about something and get them to move a little, look no further! Create an imaginary line across the room. One end stands for one opinion, the other end for the exact opposite opinion. Your attendees can now place themselves on this line wherever they like (right in the middle, on either end or somewhere in between). You can then even interview people on the line (it is always interesting to choose two from opposite sites) and learn about their views. If you’re a little overwhelmed now, here are some examples you could use for this game:

cool powerpoint games

Attention – you can of course ask about political or more controversial topics, but that may escalate and turn into a fight, which is not the purpose of the game or your presentation.

8. Describe That

Let your audience draw from cards with words on them and then describe it for the other attendees. It is basically like charades, but with words instead of acting. Some may find that too easy. In that case, you can either choose terms that are extremely hard to describe or add some “Taboo-words” to the card that can’t be used for describing.

9. True and False

Have you ever heard a crazy, bizarre fact where you didn’t think that it could be true? Perfect. You can use it in the well-known “True and False”-Game. You pick out a fact (ideally something related to your presentation topic) and then let your audience vote (you know – via an interactive poll tool like SlideLizard ) if they think it’s true or not. A tip for making statements false: Change little things about the them, like numbers, dates or names or use common misconceptions and see how many of your attendees buy into them, e.g. “Bulls are enraged by the color red” (which is false, bulls are simply enraged by movement, not specific colors).

10. The never-ending sentence

The never-ending sentence is a great game that incorporates many of your attendees and awakens their brain cells. It is perfect for keeping up their engagement and interest, especially for long presentations or workshops when you feel like some people are getting a little tired. Simply start by saying a word – it can be related to the presentation’s topic if you want – and ask a person in your audience to repeat that word and add another one – the next person to repeat those two words and add another one as well , and so on, until a sentence forms. As it gets longer the game gets a lot more difficult, because there is a lot more to remember and to repeat. The sentence can’t be ended, it has to be continued until someone makes a mistake (or until the last person in the room has added a new word). We promise that you will be left with a lot of fun, creative, and straight-up weird sentences that will make your audience laugh a lot.

Is there any event that hasn’t been immediately improved with some trivia?

A live quiz is an evergreen, ever-engaging way to consolidate your presentation’s info and check the understanding of it all amongst your audience. Expect big laughs as your audience competes fiercely over who was listening to your presentation the most complex.

How to make it…

  • Set up your questions on free quizzing software .
  • Present your quiz to your players, who join by typing your unique code into their phones.
  • Take your players through each question, and they race to get the correct answer the fastest.
  • Check the final leaderboard to reveal the winner!

Learn how to set up your presentation quiz for free in just a few minutes! 👇

Put your audience in your shoes. Give them a scenario related to your presentation and see how they would deal with it.

Let’s say you’re a teacher giving a presentation on dinosaurs. After presenting your info, you would ask something like…

A stegosaurus is chasing you, ready to snap you up for dinner. How do you escape?

After each person submits their answer, you can take a vote to see which is the crowd’s favourite response to the scenario.

This is one of the best presentation games for students as it gets young minds whirring creatively. But it also works great in a work setting and can have a similar freeing effect, which is especially significant as a meeting ice breaker .

  • Create a brainstorming slide and write your scenario at the top.
  • Participants join your presentation on their phones and type their responses to your scenario.
  • Afterwards, each participant votes for their favourite (or top 3 favourites) answers.
  • The participant with the most votes is revealed as the winner!

No matter the topic of your presentation, there’s sure to be a lot of numbers and figures flying around.

As an audience member, keeping track of them isn’t always easy, but one of the interactive presentation games that makes it easier is Key Number .

Here, you offer a simple prompt of a number, and the audience responds with what they think it refers to. For example, if you write ‘ $25′ , your audience might respond with ‘our cost per acquisition’ , ‘our daily budget for TikTok advertising’ or ‘the amount John spends on jelly tots every day’ .

  • Create a few multiple-choice slides (or open-ended slides to make it more complicated).
  • Write your key number at the top of each slide.
  • Write the answer options.
  • Participants join your presentation on their phones.
  • Participants select the answer they think the critical number relates to (or type in their answer if open-ended).

If keeping track of numbers and figures is challenging, it can be even tougher to follow entire processes or workflows explained in a presentation.

To cement this information in your audience’s mind, Guess the Order is a fantastic game for presentations.

You write the steps of a process, jumble them up, and then see who can put them in the right order the fastest.

  • Create a ‘Correct Order’ slide and write your statements.
  • Statements are automatically jumbled up.
  • Players join your presentation on their phones.
  • Players race to put the statements in the correct order.

A slide after players have voted on which of 3 stories is the lie.

You might have heard of this one as a great icebreaker, but it’s also one of the top presentation games for checking who’s paying attention.

And it’s pretty simple to do. Just think of two statements using the information in your presentation, and make another one up. Players have to guess which is the one you’ve made up.

This one is a great re-capping game and works for students and colleagues.

  • Create a list of 2 truths and one lie covering different topics in your presentation.
  • Read out two truths and one lie and get participants to guess the lie.
  • Participants vote for the lie either by hand or through a multiple-choice slide in your presentation.

#6: 4 Corners – Interactive Presentation Games

4 corners: one of the presentation games that helps get audience attention.

The best presentations are ones that spark a bit of creative thinking and discussion. There’s no better presentation game for evoking this than 4 Corners.

The concept is simple. Present a statement based on something from your presentation that’s open to different points of view. Depending on each player’s opinion, they move to a corner of the room labelled ‘strongly agree’, ‘agree’, ‘disagree’ or ‘strongly disagree’ .

Maybe something like this:

An individual is shaped more by nature than nurture.

Once everyone is in their corner, you could have a structured debate between the four sides to bring different opinions to the table.

  • Set up the ‘strongly agree’, ‘agree’, ‘disagree’ and ‘strongly disagree’ corners of your room (if running a virtual presentation, then a simple show of hands could work).
  • Write some statements which are open to different opinions.
  • Read out the statement.
  • Each player stands in the right corner of the room, depending on their view.
  • Discuss the four different viewpoints.

word cloud slide as part of presentation games on AhaSlides.

Live word clouds are always a beautiful addition to any interactive presentation. If you want our advice, include them whenever you can – presentation games or not.

If you do plan to use one for a game in your presentation, a great one to try is Obscure Word Cloud .

It works on the same concept as the popular UK game show Pointless . Your players are given a statement and have to name the most obscure answer they can. The least-mentioned correct answer is the winner!

Take this example statement:

Name one of our top 10 countries for customer satisfaction.

The most popular answers may be India, USA and Brazil , but the points go to the least mentioned correct country.

  • Create a word cloud slide with your statement at the top.
  • Players submit the most obscure answer they can think of.
  • The most obscure one appears most diminutive on the board. Whoever submitted that answer is the winner!

#8: Heart, Gun, Bomb.- Interactive Presentation Games

cool powerpoint games

This one’s a great game to use in the classroom, but if you’re not looking for presentation games for students, it also works wonders in a casual work setting.

Heart, Gun, Bomb is a game in which teams take turns to answer questions presented in a grid. If they get an answer right, they either get a heart, a gun or a bomb…

  • A ❤️ grants the team an extra life.
  • A 🔫 takes away one life from any other team.
  • A 💣 takes away one heart from the team who got it.

All teams start with five hearts. The team with the most hearts at the end, or the only surviving team, is the winner!

  • Before starting, create a grid table for yourself with either a heart, gun or bomb occupying each grid (on a 5×5 grid, this should be 12 hearts, nine guns and four bombs).
  • Present another grid table to your players (5×5 for two teams, 6×6 for three groups, etc.)
  • Write a figure stat (like 25%) from your presentation into each grid.
  • Split players into the desired number of teams.
  • Team 1 chooses a grid and says the meaning behind the number ( for example, the number of customers last quarter ).
  • If they’re wrong, they lose a heart. If they’re right, they get either a seat, gun or bomb, depending on what the grid corresponds to on your grid table.
  • Repeat this with all the teams until there’s a winner!

#9: Match Up – Interactive Presentation Games

Here’s another quiz-type question that can be a great addition to your roster of presentation games.

It involves a set of prompt statements and a set of answers. Each group is jumbled; the players must match the information with the correct answer as quickly as possible.

Again, this one works well when the answers are numbers and figures.

  • Create a ‘Match Pairs’ question.
  • Fill out the set of prompts and answers, which will automatically shuffle.
  • Players match each prompt with its answer as fast as possible to score the most points.

If there’s a more versatile presentation game tool than the humble spinner wheel , we aren’t aware of it.

Adding the random factor of a spinner wheel might be just what you need to keep engagement in your presentation high. There are presentation games you can use with this, including…

  • Choosing a random participant to answer a question.
  • Choosing a bonus prize after getting an answer correct.
  • Choosing the next person to ask a Q&A question or give a presentation.
  • Create a spinner wheel slide and write the title at the top.
  • Write the entries for the spinner wheel.
  • Spin the wheel and see where it lands!

Tip 💡 You can choose the AhaSlides spinner wheel to use your participants’ names, so you don’t have to fill in the entries manually! Learn more interactive presentation techniques with AhaSlides

#11: Q&A Balloons – Interactive Presentation Games

Foil Balloon Question Mark by PixelSquid360 on Envato Elements

This one’s a great way to turn a regular end-of-presentation feature into a fun, engaging game.

It’s got all the hallmarks of a standard Q&A, but this time, all the questions are written on balloons.

It’s a super simple one to set up and play, but you’ll see how motivated participants are to ask questions when it involves balloons!

  • Hand out a deflated balloon and a Sharpie to each participant.
  • Each participant blows up the balloon and writes their question on it.
  • Each participant bats their balloon to where the speaker is standing.
  • The speaker answers the question and then pops or throws away the balloon.

So, how do you feel about AhaSlides’s creative ideas for presentations? Being by far the most popular presentation tool on the planet, you may want to know if there are any presentation games to play on PowerPoint.

Unfortunately, the answer is no. PowerPoint takes presentations incredibly seriously and doesn’t have a lot of time for interactivity or fun of any kind.

But there’s good news…

It is possible to directly embed presentation games into PowerPoint presentations with free help from AhaSlides.

You can import your PowerPoint presentation to AhaSlides with the click of a button, then place interactive presentation games like the ones above directly between your presentation slides.

10 PowerPoint Games

There are several benefits to using powerpoint games in the classroom..

They provide an opportunity to model an activity or a game (especially with large classes), they can be fun to play, they are easy to create or edit and they don’t require an internet connection.

Since tekhnologic started over two years ago, I have shared several PowerPoint games that I have created. Now, as 2016 draws to a close, I wanted to put together a bumper pack of PowerPoint games to thank everyone who has been following this blog.

You’ll find a few some new games as well as some old favorites.

I hope you will enjoy playing them.

Game Number 1:



Download the tic-tac-toe  PowerPoint

I wrote about playing tic-tac-toe to set discussion goals back in April 2015, but I originally designed the template in Excel. This year, I wanted to create a template in PowerPoint that could be used to model to activity to the whole class.

When you open the template, you will see nine numbered squares. You can either play the game with the numbered squares or you can edit those squares and add words or phrases for the students to use in order to claim the square.

Divide your students into two teams. Decide which team is circles and which team is crosses.

Circles go first. One student from the team nominates a number or word. If they produce a sentence or answer a question, the team can claim that square.

Click on the square once to reveal a circle.

Then it’s the crosses turn. If they produce a sentence or answer a question, the team can claim that square.

Click twice on the square to reveal a cross.

The team with three symbols in a row wins.

Click on the ‘play again’ button to reset the board.

Game Number 2:

Mystery squares.


Download the Mystery Squares  PowerPoint.

This is a new PowerPoint game, but it is a variation of Trick or Treat .

Trick or treat was a Halloween themed game inspired by games such as Typhoon and BAAM. The central concept of that game is that points can be halved or lost if the students revealed a particular icon.

I wanted to create a variation where students could gain more points if they reveal a particular icon. I created a board of 20 squares and under each square there are hidden coins.


The students don’t know where the higher value coins are, so like ‘treat or treat’  the game has a random element. This means that stronger students won’t dominate the game.

Type a word, grammar structure, or number into each square.

  • Encourage students to make sentences with words you added.
  • Encourage students to use the grammar patterns and make a new sentence.
  • Encourage the students to call out and number and answer the corresponding question.

Note: You can change the placement of the coins, but you will have to adjust the animation triggers. If you move a coin from under square 7 to square 3, you will have to change the animation trigger from square 7 to square 3, otherwise the coin in square 3 will only appear when you click on square 7.

Game Number 3:


Download the Pair Up PowerPoint

Pair Up is a new PowerPoint game. I have used a similar game in the past, but I haven’t released a version on this site before.

The aim of Pair Up is to introduce, practice and test common collocations with students.

This game works well with both large and small classes. It works well with both teams and individual players. Divide your class into suitable numbers.

At the bottom of the slide, there is a hint that tells the students how many matches there are. In the center of the slide, there is a white box that can contains part of the collocation.

If the students choose a word that they think completes the collocation and it is incorrect the box will turn red. If the students choose a correct answer, it will turn green.

How to change the fill animation to a different color

All the surrounding words are set to change to red as if they were incorrect answers . Once you have added in your words, you will need to change the color for the correct answers. Follow these steps:

Changing the Animation Color.png

  • After you have written your words and its collocations (some correct, some incorrect), select the box(es) with the correct answers.
  • Go to the Animations ribbon
  • Click on Effect Options and change the color to green.

If your word has two or more matches, you will have the change the fill animation for two or more answer boxes.

Game Number 4:


Download the Bullseye PowerPoint

I created the bullseye template as a variation from the grid layout used in other PowerPoint games. The design of the board is similar to both Jeopardy and Mystery Squares in that there are different points awarded for each section of the board.

  • The outer ring is worth 1 point.
  • The middle ring is worth 2 points.
  • The inner ring is worth 3 points.
  • The bullseye is worth 5 points.

The value of points should reflect the difficulty of the questions.

However, there are no questions and answers in this template, it is just a way of keep track of points. You will need to create your own questions that reflect the content of your course.

Once you have prepared your questions, start the presentation and you are ready to play.

Divide the students into teams.

Ask one student from the first team to nominate a section of the board.

All students in the class are free to answer the question. How the students respond is up to you, but you could tell the students to use a buzzer, ask them to raise their hands or write the answer on a mini board.

The student who answers the question associated with A3 correctly, they win 3 points for their team.

Click on section A3 and it will change color to yellow.

Game Number 5:

Quiz questions.


Download the Quiz Questions 2016  PowerPoint

In September 2015, I wrote Part 2 of my Make Your Own Quiz post. These were multiple choice question templates. Traditionally, the question cards have always only had four options for the answers (A,B,C and D), however, recently I have received a few comments about how to create additional letters and options.

As a result, with this latest version, I have included templates for four answers, six answers and eight answers.

To create your own class quiz, copy the slides you need into a new PowerPoint and write your own questions and answers. When your PowerPoint is ready, you are ready to play.

Divide your students into teams.

The student/team who answers the question correctly, wins a point.

Game Number 6:



 Download the Battleships PowerPoint

Last September, I was inspired to make a PowerPoint version of Battleships after reading this blog post from ELT-CATION.

When you open the template, you will see twenty-eight squares labelled ‘WORD.’ Edit each square and write a word or phrase that you would like the students to use in order to claim the square.

The students choose a square using a letter and number combination e.g. D3, A4, C6. Encourage the students to make a sentence with the word or phrase in that square. If the student is successful, click on the square to reveal whether there is a ship underneath.

You can reward the student or the student’s team with a point if they hit a ship. You can reward the student or the student’s team with several points if they sink the ship. For example, if the ship covers three squares, award the students three points.

Read the original post for more information about how to edit the PowerPoint, move the ships and play the game.

Game Number 7:

The football game.


 Download the Football Game PowerPoint.

ELT-CATION and tekhnologic worked together to produce the Football Game .

When you start the presentation, a soccer ball will appear in the middle of the slide.

Click on each of the green strips of grass to move the ball.

When a player or team scores, click on the team buttons to record the number of goals.

During a real football game, players tackle each other and take control of the ball. An easy way to simulate this is to use a dice. Roll 1/2 and the ball moves one space, roll 3/4 and the ball moves two spaces, roll 5/6 and the ball moves three spaces. This will make it more of a challenge for the students/teams to score a goal. The greater the challenge, the more exciting the game is.

The Football Game is also a very versatile PowerPoint game because it can be used with any set of questions. Additionally, the game can also be transferred easily to the students. There is a paper-based version available to download from the original post .

Game Number 8:


Download the  Jeopardy 2016  PowerPoint.

I wrote about 5 ways to play Jeopardy back in January of 2016, since then I have updated the PowerPoint template.

Jeopardy is a game where the players are given the answer and are asked to form the question, however many ESL quiz games ask a question, so the teacher can judge if the students have understood the material by the answer they have given.

This template can be suitable for both quiz forms. The template is called Jeopardy because of the board layout.

Open the template and you will see the menu board. Each square is linked to a specific slide in the presentation. Click on red 1 and you will move to the red topic and the question that is worth 1 point .

Each question slide has one box for the question and one box for the answer. Add your own questions and answers to the template and you are ready to play.

Start the presentation.

Click on one of the squares on the menu board to go to a question slide.

Click on the question box to reveal the answer.

Click on the answer to return to the menu.

I hope you will enjoy playing Jeopardy.

Game Number 9:



Download the Concentration PowerPoint

I created the Concentration template as part of the post entitled ‘ 5 activities to make your PowerPoint more engaging .’

Concentration is a memory game where the students try to remember the location of matching pairs. This activity encourages the students to remember collocations, definitions and meanings.

The template contains 3 slides. Each slide represents a different difficulty. The first uses colors and numbers as a guide to match the cards. The second only uses colors while the third doesn’t use either numbers or colors.

This is a turn based activity, but all students should be paying attention to try and remember the position of the numbers/colors or cards.

If the students are correct, leave the cards uncovered and award points to their team. If the students are incorrect, cover the cards again and give the next team a chance.

*Special thanks to Ellen Simes who collaborated with tekhnologic on the Concentration project.

Game Number 10:

Picture Reveal


 Download the Picture Reveal 3-0  PowerPoint

Picture reveal was also part of the post entitled ‘ 5 activities to make your PowerPoint more engaging ,’ but I original introduce this game back in October of 2014 in the post ‘ The Big Reveal! ‘

A hidden picture is placed under several squares. The first version of this activity only used 9 squares. This updated version uses 9, 18, 36 and 72 squares.

Picture Reveal - Levels

Students are encouraged to guess the picture underneath the square.

This is a turn based activity. Each team choose a numbered square to reveal.

Once the students have stated their number, they must make a guess or say that they don’t know what the image is. The reason for this rule is to ensure that as much English is spoken as possible.

If the student guesses correctly, click on the images to reveal it. If the student guesses incorrectly, ask the next group to choose a square.

This video will show you how to change the image underneath the squares.

Picture Reveal

How would you play these games?

Please leave a comment if you have any ideas you would like to share or if you have any questions about any of the templates., alternatively you can send me a message on my  facebook  page or on  twitter ., thanks for reading and take care.

Great thanks

It’s wonderful!

I really liked the idea of the concentration game but when I downloaded it I couldn’t edit and put my pictures behind the numbers. how can i do that? thank you

Or by reading the original post here.

If you wish to use pictures instead of text, you will need to insert each picture and then use the arrange options on the format ribbon to send the place the images behind the numbers. Alternatively, you can arrange shapes in the selection pane.

Hope that helps.

It happened to me too! I wonder how to fix this . thanks for sharing any updates

  • Pingback: Christmas Quiz 2017 – tekhnologic

This is fantastic- do you have any step by step instructions on how to change the triggers? We tried it in magic squares and things keep turning up black.

Hi Kristie.

I have written how to change triggers in general terms but I don’t believe I have produced a step-by-step guide. Perhaps I did in an earlier post, but I would have to check. For now, I can offer you this:

1. Go to the animation ribbon and click on animation pane. The animation pane should appear on the left-hand side of the screen. 2. On the slide, click on the object you want to change the animation trigger for. 3. Select the animation for that object either from the small numbered square next to the object or from the highlighted object in the animation pane. 4. When you have selected your animation(s), go to the animation ribbons, click on trigger and select the new object/shape that will be the trigger for that animation.

I hope that helps for now. Let me know if you still experience problems and I will try and create a more elaborate guide for you, but it may be some time before I can get round to it.

Thank you so much for getting back to me- that was unexpected (but I was hopeful). I’m still not having any luck. When I move things around, the spaces end up being black so I’m still doing something wrong. This is what my screen looks like when I start-


when I try to change squares 12 and 16 this is what it looks like- (I want to change them because the kids have figured out where the high value coins are)


When I try to show the powerpoint the squares are black.

Again, thank you for getting back to me- I truly love the activities- I just want to be able to reuse them and ultimately introduce your website to even more of my colleagues.

Hi Christie,

Thank you for the message.

The activities are 100% reusable. As we discussed before, the animation triggers just need changing.

The animation triggers for the cover tiles are fixed. The tiles disappear when you click on them, but the coin needs to have its animation trigger set to the new cover tile (if it has moved). You will probably find that a coin is appearing, just on a different part of the slide.

I wrote a step by step guide above to changing the animation triggers of objects. Unfortunately, I will not be available to make a guide or tutorial for several days.

If you contact me via my Facebook page, I will keep you updated as to when a guide/tutorial has been published.

Thank you for creating these games! This will help me out for my classes!

Thank you so much- we’ve figured out our ‘triggers’ and are enjoying using your activities! The students love these!!

Thanks so much for these great ideas and amazing games.

thank you so much! continue to help others by sharing your great works! love it!
