Game Powerpoint. These days presentations are everywhere: in the classrooms, offices, on the screens of computers and smartphones, at office meetings, conferences and big events. Unfortunately, most of these ppt are similar to each other and just bore an audience. Often, one makes an impression as if he’s staying at a railway crossing and looking at similar freight wagons...and they never end.
On the other hand, that is not an easy task to keep the interest of a modern audience, especially children. Since these days people live in a controversial and endless stream of information, but the game is not over yet! You can use nontraditional ways to impress your students or colleagues. Create a game PowerPoint presentation and say cya to boring and trivial slides.
Modern presentations have more in common with cinema and comics than they do with written documents.
What is the basic difference of presentation games from ordinary illustrations? That is an active work of a player, the possibility to make his own choice and instantly receive a result. Many teachers already use these games to release the working tension from their students and increase their cognitive capacity. Thus, this is a really win-win solution. Multimedia in a presentation may be used on various stages of an educational process: as a training exercise, to sum up the material and as a home task. As a rule, after a few years of working any teacher has a vast collection of PPTs for different lessons and these materials can be easily modified, becoming more exciting and interesting.
Although, games for presentations and their elements can become an effective tool for any professional field. Since dynamics involves and impresses any audience, whether they are sitting in a classroom, at the conference or at a workshop. If games to play during a conference are just for one volunteer you’ll certainly spark an interest of the whole hall.
Actually, the only problem is that most people don’t know how to make a PowerPoint game. However, it’s not brain surgery. Interactive games for presentation have quite simple algorithm, which begins from a single idea.
Basically, simple animation tools of PowerPoint provide you with lots of gamification scripts, that are limited only by your creativity. It’s quite easy to create huge interactive training materials in PPT with hundreds of slides, breadcrumb menu and other stuff. Actually, these presentations will be like a local website. You just need to determine the purpose of your gamification and create an interesting idea to capture an audience. Look at the most popular presentation games you can craft.
A player has to pick the necessary objects from the picture. For example, there is a soup recipe and a player needs to choose vegetables that are in the list. Or he needs to pick up all the stuff for a camping trip. This game can be a great training to learn word spelling, math or history. For instance, you can show several geometrical figures or historical dates and answer the question.
You can craft amazing virtual quests in PowerPoint presentation games. For instance, a player goes into a mysterious abandoned house and each slide of a presentation is the next room. He needs to think of how to get out of this place, using the stuff he can find there. That may be a key under the armchair or an axe to break the glass of a cupboard where he may find a secret door. You can lay down any logical chain in your game to interest a player.
In games for presentations with hidden objects a player needs to find all stuff to complete the task. These games increase attention span, providing fun and entertainment.
There are different ways to design an ordinary quiz in presentation games. You can imitate any television game show or create your own layout. Quizzes can be used not only for knowledge examination. There can be interesting facts about a company to entertain an audience at the conference.
Cards with hidden images are probably the most popular game PowerPoint presentation to train a memory. There are several pairs of objects, which are randomly arranged under the cards. A player can open only 2 cards simultaneously. When he opens a matching pair it disappears. The goal of the game is to match all similar objects. Another wonderful solution can be presentation games where a player should remember objects pictured on the slide and name one that disappeared.
After you’ve chosen an idea for your game PowerPoint presentation you need to make a template with necessary graphical elements and add bunch of animation effects. Follow these principles creating your template for presentation games:
Get to know the main tools of PowerPoint animation to create gamification of any level in no time and enjoy the process. First of all you need to understand how to use triggers, which are necessary for most interactive games for presentations.
Trigger is an object, when clicking on it certain actions may be triggered such as the sound, text block, image or a video on the slide. You can manage triggers in any sequence.
Games to play during a presentation with triggers provide instant feedback and dynamics. To know how to make a mini game choose the way you’ll use triggers:
Let’s see how to create an interactive PowerPoint presentation on the example of this mini game. The object of it is to learn geographical locations of countries. A player has to find all countries listed on the slide. After clicking on the country the relevant button and the territory of the country changes the color. Gamification of the map can be used in a business PPT as well, to show expansion of export deliveries at different stages of the company development.
All right, now let's learn how to make a game in PowerPoint:
I used a vector world map from this theme to create a game template.
1. Create a new slide with a map.
2. Create the second slide with the same map. I made another ppt and named it geographical game 2, but you can simply duplicate the slide in your presentation.
3. Hovering over the necessary countries click on and color them.
4. Copy all these objects.
5. Paste them to the first slide (geographical game) over the similar ones. You’ll make two layers.
6. Then create buttons and style them you like. For each country you need two buttons of two different colors.
7. Insert text into each button. Make two buttons of different colors for each country.
8. You can miss this step, but I advise you to do it for your convenience. In the tab Arrange > Section Pane > rename all objects you’re going to use for this mini click game.
9. When you hover over the object it’ll be highlighted in the Selection Pane. Change default names of the objects you’ll use in your game to find them easily in the following stages.
10. For the USA I used the following names: Button USA 1/Button USA 2/USA 1/USA 2/Alaska 1/Alaska2.
11. Tap the Animation tab > Hover over an object > Add animation > Appear (choose any effect you like).
12. For the same animation press Trigger > Choose the name of an object which is under the animated one. In my case it's ‘Brazil 1’.
13. Move the relevant button over the second one with the same country name.
14. Hover over the button > open Animation tab > Add animation > Appear (choose what you like).
15. For the same animation press Trigger > choose the button, which is now under the current one.
16. Tap Animation Pane > you’ll see your animations > press on the second one > Start with Previous.
17. Press F5 to check out.
18. Complete the same algorithm for all other countries. You’ll see a lighting sign near animated objects.
19. You can see all ready-made animations in the Animation Pane.
The USA has two separated territories, and we need them both to be colored whether which one we’ll click on. Thus, we need two triggers and three animation objects. Create an animation step-by-step for each element of this group:
20. Alaska > Add animation > Appear > Trigger > Alaska 1 > Add animation > Appear > Trigger > USA 1.
Animation Pane > Start with Previous for each stage, except the first one.
21. USA > Add animation > Appear > Trigger > Alaska 1 > Add animation > Appear > Trigger > USA 1.
Animation Pane > you’ll see your animations > press on the second one > Start with Previous.
22. Button USA > Add animation > Appear > Trigger > Alaska 1 > Add animation > Appear > Trigger > USA 1.
Animation Pane > you’ll see your animations > press on the second one > Start with Previous.
23. These animations will automatically group under the triggers, which you can see in the Animation plane.
24. Press F5 to check out and enjoy the result.
