My "Watzit Say?" PowerPoint (Windows) games are similar to the famous TV game, Wheel of Fortune. The purpose of each game is to determine an unknown phrase. Students choose letters as the teacher makes them appear on the screen. The first player or team to identify the phrase wins the round. A game consists of either 16 rounds (4 categories) or 25 rounds (5 categories). There is a feature that allows for scores to be maintained for up to 12 players or teams. A Presenter's Guide is included that provides step-by-step instructions. The algorithms that make the features of the game possible involve the use of "macros," which are small subroutines written in Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) programming. This language is an integral part of all Microsoft Office applications. There are malware programs that can be downloaded from the Internet that have been found to use macros. Therefore, some schools prevent programs that include macros from running on school-owned computers. You can adjust the settings on your computer to allow macros to run with the permission of your employer. Directions concerning how to do this are included with every game. I have provided a free evaluation version of each game that can be downloaded so that you can examine how the games work and how the macros function. Please download and test the evaluation version before considering the purchase of any Watzit Say? game. Macros must be allowed to run for the evaluation versions, too. Since these games run within your PowerPoint application, you do NOT need to install anything new on your PC. The games have been tested on PowerPoint 2013 and 2016. Games with your customized content are available on request. Your comments, questions and suggestions are welcome (email@example.com).
