This game features a game board with forty animated frogs, four-question types of eight each for a total of thirty-two questions, two scoreboards, rewards and penalties for correct and incorrect answers, hidden Easter eggs in the form of frog princes with extra rewards, and a winner celebration slide for a total of forty slides. All of the slides have sounds triggered by a button or transition to the slide. Every game slide has buttons to go back to the game board or the instructions.
How to Play:
If you play with teams, choose them randomly by whatever method you wish. Each team must select a team captain that will choose a team number, question numbers, question answers, and other selections for the group. With each turn, the captain can be rotated to keep all players involved. You can also play with eight singles/groups or give more than one character to a player or group. Just do whatever suits your class’s needs best.
Players must choose a number to represent them. All numbers have one scoreboard for keeping track of flies won and one for boiling pots received. The first player/team will click on a flying frog. This The frog will fly off the screen and reveal a crown in its place. Players must click on the crown. The crown will disappear and one of two things will happen. They will either be linked to one of the four question types, “When Frogs Fly” or correct-incorrect, “Possible Ponds” or multiple-choice, “Missing Toads” or fill in the blank, or “Leaping Lilies” or describe the photo or the disappearing crown will reveal an Easter egg frog prince.
When players are on a question slide, they must choose the option they think is correct and click it. Players must remember the question coordinate, for example, 1A so that when they are directed to the “Fly Traps”-correct answer slide, or the “Boiling Pots”-incorrect answer slide, they know what covered box coordinate to click on for their reward or penalty. After receiving the reward or penalty, players need to hover over the square again until a hand appears. They need to click again to recover the reward or penalty. They then need to click on the “Back to Board” button and either add the flies or boiling pots to the appropriate scoreboard. After players add their flies or boiling pots, play passes to the next player/team.
If players clicked on a crown and it revealed an Easter egg frog prince, they need to click on the frog prince. This will direct them to the “Royal Reward Spinner”. Once there, players will click on the spinner to activate it and click again to make it stop. Players will remember the coordinate the spinner landed on and click on the “To Royal Rewards” button. This directs them to the actual “Royal Rewards” slide. The player must click on the coordinate the spinner landed on to receive their reward. After receiving the reward, players need to hover over the square again until a hand appears. They need to click again to recover the reward or penalty. The player must finally click on the “Back to Board” button and either add or subtract the flies or boiling pots they received or take another turn by clicking on another frog.
Players will take turns clicking frogs on the board as above.
There are a couple of ways to determine a winner. One is when all of the questions have been answered, the players must deduct the number of boiling pots from their flies total. The player/team with the most flies wins. The second option is to set a time limit for the game. The player/team with the most flies when time is up, wins. Regardless of the method, the winning player/team gets to click on the “Pond Party” button on the game board to celebrate!
