HYPERLINKS AND CUSTOM ANIMATION

These games take advantage of hyperlinks to move between slides or perform other special functions. Do not delete any buttons as this may negatively affect the functionality of the games. Close and restart a game to reset the hyperlinks OR exit slideshow mode to reset the custom animations.

GENERAL EDITING

These files are not protected and can be altered and edited as needed. Always work from a copy of the original game so any changes or edits can be easily fixed by starting again from the original game file.

HOW THE GAMES WORK

Below are sample game screens from various games to demonstrate how the different game features work. Not every game has all the features listed below.
Below the general instructions below are specific instructions related to games in Volume One. Instructions for the InJeopardy3D game are in a separate PDF document.

HOME SLIDE

All games will have a Home slide to get things started. Typically you’ll return to the Home slide after posting scores for each question.
Edit topic boxes to customize the game name or question categories.
Buttons at the bottom of the screen will take you to the game’s rules/ instructions, scoreboard or return to any used questions.

Remember to keep the game in slide show mode while playing. Moving into edit mode will reset the question buttons and scoring. If
you need to revisit a question simply use the “Return to Question” button. SCOREBOARD SLIDE
image_002
Most scoreboards will use custom animation to keep score. Click on the transparent buttons to add points. Click through the 0 to
9 sequence to correct an error. The Next Up button can be used to keep track of who is up. Caution: Exiting slideshow mode will reset all of the scores.
Before playing, don’t forget to enter your team or players’ names on this slide. It’s quick and easy to do, so you can even allow teams to come up with their own team names.

QUESTION SLIDES

An optional 30 second timer (top right corner of slide) is available to help move the game along. Click on the correct answer to advance.
The trainer can easily click and type to enter questions, correct and incorrect answers on each slide. Note: correct answer positions vary from slide to slide and may be edited, or
repositioned if you prefer.
image_003
It is also possible to change the question format to a True/False or open-ended
question by deleting (3) possible answer boxes & leaving a True/False or Correct/Incorrect alternative.
image_004
Here is an example of a format changed to a True/False question. This same format can be used for an open-ended question by changing the True/False to Correct/Incorrect and placing the correct answer on the More slide.

INFORMATION AND EXERCISE SLIDES
image_005
Most of the games provide Information and Exercise buttons on each question slide. The Information button moves to a slide designed to provide the trainer with an area in which they can expound on the current question. The Exercise button moves to a slide designed to allow the trainer to introduce an interactive exercise related to the question. In this way your TGI games become a highly effective tool for not only grabbing attention, but for introducing new information, and allowing trainees to more meaningfully engage with your program content. Consequently TGI games are not only great for reviewing program materials, but are useful to deliver program information while increasing learner retention.

From these slides, you can return to the question, go to the scoreboard or back to the Home slide. PRESENTATION SLIDES
image_006
Along the same lines, the InJeopardy Quiz

Show Game offers presentation slides connected to the categories on the Home slide. Here the trainer can deliver a short (3 slides) presentation on each of the game categories before, during or after the game.

ICE BREAKER SLIDE
image_007
Several of the games have a built in ice breaker which can be used at the beginning of a game or meeting. See the instructions on each ice breaker for how they work.

PRIZE SLIDES
image_008

Most games provide a way to award prizes at the end of a game. Trainers can enter their own prizes and let the winners choose a prize randomly. Prizes can be a real prize or perhaps a whimsical prize such as a longer coffee break or applause from the opposing team/s.

Clicking on the Prize Selector button from the Home slide will show a short congratulations slide with music and animation before letting you select your prize. This is a great way to
end a game.

GAME INTROS

Most of the games have a flashy intro that helps to “hype” the game for your group and get everyone excited. Don’t forget to enter the team or players’ names on these intro slides. Intros consist of animation and lively music.

The Quiz Show has four different types of questions that can be used. They are open ended, true/false, multiple choice and match. Also included is an additional information or exercise slide which can be used to add information, images or an exercise either before or after a question.

To create a Quiz Show game, make copies of the question slides you want to use. Questions and information slides should follow the scoreboard slide and you can create as many questions or information slides as you need. The game over slide should be at the end of your questions.

image_021

Peril Quiz Show Game

This Peril board works like a normal question selector in other games except clicking on a topic will start a 3 slide mini presentation which can be shown before any of the questions in that category are revealed. This is optional and does not have to be used. Note: the slides are located at the end of the slides.

Ice Breaker – Team Builder Word Jumble Game

The Next Up button on the scoreboard will rotate a red dot through the teams. This can be used to keep track of which team is up.
Since you can access the scoreboard from any question, the Return to Last Screen button will return you to that question or press the home icon button to return to the Peril screen.

The 30 second timer starts automatically when a question is shown. Click on an A, B, C, D or E button to select that answer.
If you only want to have 2 (true/false) to 4 possible answers then delete those buttons and text during your question entry. Important: make sure that you never delete the Correct Answer selection from a question.

For the first jumble, press the First Jumble button. Subsequent jumbles you will need to press the Return to Jumble button and from the last
jumble, press the Next Jumble button to show the next jumble.
image_025

To create a Jumble game, make copies of the jumble slides to add a new jumble. The End slide should be after your last jumble.
Creating a jumble:

The mixed up jumble goes on the top of the slide. Enter your mixed up word in the top textbox. Placing a space between each letter will make it easier to see. Enter a hint but not too obvious; and then the unmixed up word in the lower textbox. Ideas for words to use: create jumbles that support your training program. If used as a team builder, enter words that are related to team building concepts.
