If I purchase the game, will I be able to open in on different computers?

For example, I would like to work on creating the game on my desktop. Then, I would use my laptop to play with students.

Hello!

Thank you for your interest in my products! Yes, the license is for a single teacher to use on their computer at home and school. The file can be easily transferred between your computers with a flash drive.

As long as the file isn't posted to a school or district-wide server OR the internet, then you should be good. :)

The Primary Primer  (TpT Seller) re: PowerPoint Games Pack - 5 Customizable TV Game Show Templates
These games look awesome! Do you know if they will work with a SMARTBoard? I have other "Jeopardy/Millionaire" powerpoint games that are not compatible with the Notebook software. My kiddos have to use the laptop in order for the links to work properly. The links don't work on the Smart Board - which kind of defeats the whole purpose! Looking forward to your response. Thanks so much!

Hello! Thank you for your interest in my products!

I don't import or convert these PowerPoint files into SMART Notebook in order to play the games because, you're right, it does funny things to PowerPoints!

I just open them as a PowerPoint file and project them on my SMARTBoard. That being said, they work well on my SMARTBoard and my colleagues use them, too. Also, I've never had a buyer claim that they didn't work on theirs as long as they were using PowerPoint.

I hope that helps! Happy teaching.

Hello Roxanne,

Thank you for contacting me! That is very odd--I've never heard of this issue before!

Try copying "Slide 4" (question 2 slide), then, delete "Slide 3" (question 1 slide), then paste the copied version of "Slide 4" into the "Slide 3" spot.

Essentially, you're just replacing the erroneous slide with a copied version of a slide that works.

If you do this, you will have to replace the answers for "Slide 3" (question 1 slide), but the animations should work again.

Please let me know if this solution works for you!

Hello,

Thank you for your interest in my products! Some Mac users have purchased my games and said that they worked for them, however, I know this is not always the case and I don't want to suggest that anyone purchase something they may not be able to use.

That being said, the main issue is with the score boxes not working on Macs (they use a function that Macs do not support). The "Connect4", "Are You Smarter Than Your Teacher?", and "Battleship" games do not use that function--just simple PowerPoint animations (fade, appear, etc.). If you're interested in trying a game, these products might work for you.

If not, TpT can always provide you with a refund!

Again, thank you for your interest in my products.

Hello,

Thank you for your interest in my product! Yes, you could insert pictures into the question slides using the "Insert" > "Picture" function in PowerPoint. If you look at the product page, the third picture represents what the question slide looks like and approximately how much room you have to work with. You could delete the text box or move it around to fit your needs.

Note: I do not recommend this PowerPoint template for use on Macs, so I hope you have a PC!

Hey! I just downloaded some of your games. How do I get all of the hyperlinks to work in the jeopardy game, I am not sure how that works exactly. And for the millionaire game how can I change the boxes of the colors because one green will give the answer away. Thanks!

Best Teacher Resources
Best Teacher Resources  (TpT Seller)
Hello!

Thank you for contacting me!

What do you mean when you ask how to get the hyperlinks to work in the Jeopardy game? All you have to do is click on them while you're in "Slideshow" mode and they will take you to the question slides.

You don't have to change any of the colors of the boxes in the Millionarie game. All you have to do is edit the text in "Edit" mode, and while you're playing the game in "Slideshow" mode, the green (for correct answers) and red (for incorrect answers) will only show when one of the boxes is selected.

If you're still having trouble with these elements of the games, please let me know if you're using a Mac or a PC. Also, which version of PowerPoint you have. You might also try using the games on another computer in order to determine if the issue is with the files or the settings on your computer.

There are complete instructions for editing the game files and playing the game in the "Notes" section of each slide in case you have any other questions about these templates. :)

Hello!

Thank you for your interest in my products! This does not have the Who Wants to Be A Millionaire? intro music, because I do not have rights to use that, however, there are sounds for correct and incorrect answers.

If you purchase this game template, you'd be able to make as many games as you need for as many subjects as you need. There would be no need to buy more than one template, unless one of your colleagues wanted to use it.

Hello Buyer,

Yes, these are intended to be printed double sided. You just have to make sure that you put the paper back in the tray the right way!

I purposely made the artwork for the backside of the cards larger than necessary to allow for some wiggle room. Any excess can simply be cut off after laminating.

Hello Buyer,

You could copy the slide with the letter board on it as many times as you'd like, then edit the letter board with the word or phrase you want to review. You'd just have to make sure that the button that takes you to the "Wheel" links there on each copied letter board slide, and the "Back to Board" button on the "Wheel" slide links to "Last Slide" (as in the last slide you were reviewing).

I hope that helps!

Hello Buyer,

Many of the games make use of PowerPoint macros, which are incompatible with some versions of Mac's PowerPoint. I've had customers unknowingly purchase my games who use Macs and were able to use the games, however, I **do not** recommend that Mac users purchase them because there's no way to be sure. I would hate for anyone to be unsatisfied!

The best bet is to use the games with a PC. I'm sorry for the inconvenience!

Hello!

Thank you for contacting me about this product!

Are you using a Mac or a PC to edit/play this game?

What do you mean about the check marks on the main slide? Are you talking about the question marks on "Slide 2"? I'm not familiar with any check marks anywhere in the game.

When you're playing the game (in slideshow mode) all you have to do is left-click on a space on the game board and one of the checkers will appear. They first appear as a black checker, and then turn red if you left-click again.

If you're still not able to get these functions to work, go to "Slide 2" in "edit" mode, then click on the "Animations" tab, and then "Custom Animations". You should see a series of different animations on the left-hand side of your screen. If you don't let me know.

You can always try downloading the game to another computer (PC) to see if you can get the game to work there. All computers have different settings and drivers and sometimes they prevent certain functions from working.

Feel free to email me at bestteacherblog@gmail.com. Looking forward to getting this figured out for you!

Hello Caitlin,

Thanks for reaching out to me! The red cards are the only ones that printed out incorrectly? That is very strange... They're designed exactly the same way as the other cards. I've never heard of this issue before!

Is there a way that you could try to print them (even just a single test page of red cards) from a different computer/printer? It would help determine if the issue is with settings on your printer/computer OR if the issue is with the file itself.

Do you have the most up-to-date version of Adobe Reader? If not, it might be worth updating the program to see if that helps.

Hello Citrodavis,

When you say you are unable to go back to "it", what do you mean by "it"? The game board where the letters are?

My guess is that you'd have to change the "Back to Slide X" button link to "Back to Last Slide", but, again, that's based on my limited understanding of what you're asking. :)

I'm sorry I'm not following! Please feel free to email me at bestteacherblog@gmail.com and attach your newly edited version of the template. Maybe that'd help me figure out what you mean!

Hello Kimmi,

Yes, this template is customizable in that you can set the subject and vocab words to anything you'd like.

The nice thing about this template is that you can easily change the subject and vocab words on-the-fly (while playing) because it doesn't take very long for students to guess a single word. This way, you just keep changing the vocab words as they guess them to keep the review going.

I hope that answers your question!

Hello emersoj,

When I play this game with my students, I usually let 1-2 students answer each question. Sometimes I just take volunteers for a small amount of extra credit. This way, multiple students are involved in the review game.

The answers are customizable, so you don't have to keep track of them. Once you edit the game template, they're there for your students to choose from.

Hi, i've just purchased your product and I'm designing my own version of it.! It's really useful, thanks! But I have a question! When I finished editing the powerpoint, I test the it by pressing the SCORES on slide 2, it turns blue.(it's good that students can see which questions was chosen.) But how can I turn it into white again? Coz I'm not using it at this moment. Thanks a lot.

Hello lphmione,

As far as I know there isn't a way to turn the clicked hyperlink white again aside from reopening the PowerPoint. It changes blue because the text was clicked (and cannot, therefore, be unclicked). My only guess is that you could change it blue with another action animation, but, I'm not entirely sure how that would work...

Best of luck to you!

Hello ttownsend417,

Thank you for your interest in my products! Unfortunately, I do not recommend these PowerPoint games for Mac because many of them make use of PowerPoint Macros for the interactive functions and scoring.

PowerPoint Macros are not available in the Mac version of PowerPoint, so even though you have Microsoft Office, it's likely the games would not work in their entirety.

I apologize for the inconvenience--I just don't want anyone to be disappointed with their purchase! I hope you understand!

Thank you, completely I understand.

We do try to hold to the no external link policy as much as possible, because we have a lot of children roaming or site every day as well as teachers and parents and would not want them to get "lost" on the internet (it can be a scary place if you're not careful). :)

But we will surely let you know if anything changes. We may be having some new options in the future for teachers as well.

Thanks again!

Hello!

We saw your freebie, and would love to put it up on TinyGrads.com as a free download there as well by our large community of teachers and parents.

Though our policy of no "external links" prevents us from "linking" to your TpT store directly, we'd love to give you credit, put your name and TpT ID picture up there, and use text to point our parents and teachers to your store where they might want to purchase your “for sale” items from there.

We thought this might be a great a way to give you a little “free advertising” and for our community of parents and teachers (and the children they teach) to be able to enjoy your work as well.

We'll take care of loading your freebie up there, all we need is your permission.

Hope you have a great day!

Looking forward to hearing from you soon.

Thanks!

Buyer re: Parts of Speech Game - Expansion Pack
Can't wait to use this during the week, but when I printed out the cards, Slides 15 & 16 of the Fronts (yellow) have exactly the same information. Are they supposed to? I triple-checked this, as no one else posted this in feedback comments. Thought you'd want to know. Please let me know...In regular UNO, there are no duplicates within the same color set. Great product idea, however!!

Hello lynneo,

Yes, those sheets are the same by design. I included a couple of sheets of extra cards so that there were more cards in play. In my experience, if there weren't doubles of those slides, there weren't enough cards to play a full game.

Thank you for taking the time to leave feedback, though! I really appreciate it.

On November 20th you answered my question. I am sorry it took so long to get back to you about the colors of my parts of speech in my grammar program. These are the colors I use:

nouns are green (primary green)
verbs are red
adjectives are blue
prepositions are purple
adverbs are orange

Thank you for asking... let me know if something can be done. I appreciate your time.

Hi, Best Teacher Resources Team!
How are you?

I want to know if you have this product in Portuguese (Brazil). If yes, good!!! If not, do you have a editable template that I can use with my Brazilian students?

Thanks a lot for your attention and for sharing your brilliant ideas with us.

I am considering purchasing one of your game packages to use to review various topics. I noticed that some of the templates are built for a specific number of questions. Can questions be added and removed without hurting the functionality of the template? Also, can you give more detail on how the manual scoring works? Thanks!

Hello IDesigner,

Thank you for your interest in my products! Unfortunately, no, it will not be easy to add and remove entire questions without redesigning parts of the template. Editing the questions is very easy, however!

The manual scoring simply refers to the fact that you have to type the score into the score boxes. They do not automatically add, subtract or keep score for you because PowerPoint does not have that kind of functionality.

The score boxes are nice because they do not reset when you move to other slides. They remain unchanged until you need to update a team's score.

I hope that answers your questions! Please let me know if there is anything else I can assist you with.

I have a HUGE question... I purchased one of your UNO games for parts of speech and I am looking another UNO-like product. My question is: is it possible to change the colors on the noun/verb/adjective parts?

Here is why I ask: I am working on a grammar system that I am developing as I go. It is really working with my students and it is color based. Unfortunately the colors don't match the colors in your game. For example: nouns in my system are green.

I realize this is a HUGE question. I would be willing to change the colors myself if I have the correct program to do it in.

I appreciate your time and consideration. I am just trying to make all the pieces in this system fit together and I love your games!

Thank you,

Hello Shelley,

Thank you for your interest in my products! I created these games in Adobe Photoshop and it's not particularly easy to make big changes like that. It would require a decent amount of familiarity with Photoshop.

Which colors correspond to which PoS in your system?

Hi loslacky,

I'm sorry you're having trouble with the template! Are you trying to edit the white area of the game board DURING gameplay (i.e. in slideshow mode)? That's when the "letter spaces" can be edited.

Do you know if your PowerPoint Macros are enabled? They are usually enabled by default, but I've encountered a few customers who had them disabled for whatever reason. There is a link in the file you downloaded that shows you how to enable them, but here's the link for your convenience:

Just curious, have you had someone try your templates on Office for Mac 2011? I really love these, but my computer at home is a macbook. At school I do have a PC but I do most of my editing of templates at home on my mac.

Hello khellman!

Thank you for your interest in my products! I have tried these templates in Office for Mac, however, some of the important functions don't work because Office for Mac doesn't offer them.

I would LOVE to create versions of these games that are compatible with Macs. However, these games use a very important function called "PowerPoint Macros" that does not work on Macs. (Even if the Macs have PowerPoint installed.)

This function is primarily used with the scoring boxes and any time content can be edited DURING gameplay. So, very integral parts of some of the games like "Classroom Feud", "Classroom Jeopardy" and "Wheel of Riches" would not work.

I am terribly sorry for the inconvenience! I just don't want anyone to be dissatisfied with their purchase, so I advise against using these games on Macs. Again, thank you for your interest in my products.

Happy teaching,

Mrs. S

Hello Aubrey,

Thank you for your interest in my products! Several of the PowerPoint templates use the PowerPoint macro function for scoring and other on-the-go game elements. Unfortunately, PowerPoint macros are not compatible with Macs and I can't, in good faith, recommend these templates for Mac users (even if they have the right program). I'm sorry for the inconvenience!

Are you on a PC or Mac? This template requires that you use a PC.

TEACHING EXPERIENCE

My name is Mrs. S. and I love creating teaching materials! I've been in the education industry for 15 years, with experience in teaching middle school and high school.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I think that kids learn best when they're focused, engaged and having fun--don't you? It's just too easy for students to give up or drift off when their worksheets are ambiguous, bland and boring. Yuck. Over the last 15 years, I've learned that taking the time to put together learning tools that the kids ACTUALLY want to use makes all the difference. That's why I strive to make materials that are easy-to-use, eye-catching and entertaining! But, don't take my word for it! Take a look at what I've posted and judge for yourself.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

My favorite teaching moments are when students BEG to "do this again!" These moments are the ones that drive me to make the best teaching materials I can.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

B.S. Education Minors in English, Biology

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I create a lot of materials for other subjects when teachers at my school ask me to help them out (it's kind of my thing!). That's why you'll see materials that aren't specific to English or science!
