Thank you for researching... that explains a lot. I think it's a great idea to add that detail to the description. If you don't mind looking into the refund, I would appreciate it. I wish I could have used the game...it looks really fun.

HI Mike, Thanks for your first response regardingThe Big Wheel. I have Powerpoint for mac 2008. I tried your suggestions and attempted to run the spinner and reveal the letters both in and out of presenter mode...still not working for me. The wheel does spin on the first slide. Do you have any other suggestions?

Arrggh . . . I have Mac PowerPoint 2011 on one of my machines and everything was working fine. I did some research and found out that the methods I use to create the animations (wheel spinning, etc.) do not work on Mac Office 2008 ... so it appears there is nothing you can do to get it to work. So sorry about that. I am happy to see if TpT will issue you a refund if you would like. I would offer other products, but most of my review games use that kind of animation. I will try to add that to my other product descriptions that Mac PowerPoint 2011 or later is required.

Hi Mike,
I purchased Big Wheel Review Game. I click on the spin button and it does not spin, and I also cannot reveal the letters. I can reveal them while in edit mode on powerpoint but not in slideshow mode. Please help. What am I doing wrong?

Are you on a PC or a Mac? It will not work on Keynote, but it should work on a Mac if you are using PowerPoint, but you may have to change it out of presenter's mode. If on a PC, let me know what version of PowerPoint you are using.

Mike, I don't have a question...just a comment. I accidentally posted that I changed your web address to a QR code. I had my assignments mixed up. BUT, I would like to say that my students did enjoy your activity. Thanks so much!

Buyer re: 21 Interactive Powerpoint Review Game
Hi! I am new to TpT and it's amazing! I am almost ready to retire, therefore not very adept at technology. Our classrooms all have Smartboards now and I am learning to use them. Do I use this game on a computer (powerpoint) and then it will be displayed on the Smartboard? Thanks!

Yes. That would be a perfect use of the game. In rooms without smart boards, I just have a student run the game and reveal the point values while the game is projected on the screen, but with a smart board more kids could reveal the scores.

OOPS!! I didn't see the "Product Overview" before I sent my question about your resource. I am new to the TpT website so I am still finding my way around it! THanks again for the fantastic download!

LOVE this unit!! Do you have your students search a certain website for the answers or do you have them watch a certain DVD? Just curious what your resource is for your students' responses.

It looks like you might have found your answer already, but if not, the best resource I have in my state is CultureGrams. Our State Office of Education has purchased rights for our entire state to use it for free. It has answer for most (but not all) of the questions and students can try to find the others on their own. I usually have to provide a few of the answers for them.

Buyer re: 21 Interactive Powerpoint Review Game
Also re 21 Interactive Power Point, when I click on a box to show the point value, it shows ALL the point values in all the boxes, not just the one box selected. That's not the way it should work, right?

Suggestions on how to correct this? I'd really like to use your game in my French class, but am struggling with this.

Buyer re: 21 Interactive Powerpoint Review Game
I purchased and downloaded this file onto my Mac iBook but there seems to be a problem. There are only 5 slides total yet your directions reference 7 slides. This seems to be incomplete.

Can you help me?
