David how can I make a matching game using words from scratch. The
one where the squares turn around when you press on the number.
Comment by jairus on March 13, 2008 at 3:01am
I have the same question I want to make a memory/matching game
using flags how can I do that?

This is not easy and that's one problem with flash, the amount of
knowledge you need to make a game as oppossed to the less versatile
ppt but easier to change. Let me think about it. I'd like to see
something where the students drag the items (pictures / words) and
if they match , both disappear. I'm going to try that when I get
some extra time. As of now, no template for what you are mentioning
other than constructing it from scratch in flash. I'll try to come
up with something! David

I really liked your BAAM! game and wanted to use it as a review for my class. How to I change the questions so that they are applicable to what we have went over in class? Thank you!
Comment by Andrew on May 30, 2008 at 1:45am
Dave...I'm having trouble accessing the Memory games? I keep getting a message in Korean about the site or downloading. Is the site down?
Comment by Emmalyn Hicks on December 19, 2008 at 4:02am
I think the school may have blocked the site because it has the word"games" in the URL...mine does the same thing.

Hi David, my school computer won't let me use BAAM!. i just get crosses over the numbers, and it won't work! Do I need something to combat this? or is it a hopeless case?
Thanks

What happened to the battleship game. It seems like a really neat idea but the link doesn't seem to work. :(
Comment by Chooch Mangione on June 26, 2009 at 2:25am
bomb game jobs.pptmbomb game what will you do this summer.ppt

EPIK crew!


i've attached two PPT games for 6th grade lessons. one is for "What Will You Do This Summer?" and the other is for "My Father Is a Pilot".
It's called the Bomb game (similar to BAAM) and my kids went crazy over it.
it's really easy. at least 2 teams though 3 is fine. team chooses a letter (slide 3). it will take them to a question. the team must answer in unison. if they are right, they get the reward. if not, it passes to the next team. click the little "u-turn" button to get back to the alphabet page. next teams turn.

the rewards are points (1-5), a bomb (which brings their score back to 0 points, dynamite (which they can chose to bring another teams points back to 0), and a man (i found out theif is a pretty bad word to Koreans... the man can take 3 points away from the other team(s)... all 3 pints from one team or they can take up to a total of 3 points from multiple teams).

give it a shot. it really is fantastic. l
Comment by Sean on June 30, 2009 at 2:13am
I'm using some BAAM games this week for my classes. It's the week before exams and the students have no patience for regular, academic work.

The problem I'm having is that after I download and run the games, they don't work a second time. Once they're closed and opened a second time, then the numbers are all "X-ed" and clicking on any one of them simply takes you to the first question. This happens with all the BAAM games.

I've tried both PowerPoint and OpenOffice and tried it on two different computers. My friends also have this problem. Any idea as to how to fix it? It's better than downloading it every time or running it from an archive (read-only).

Comment by ddeubel on July 2, 2009 at 2:10am
Sean,

How do you download? Right click the game and "save as". This will put it on your desktop . Open and then I suggest once again, "save as" and save it under a different name. This will make it not read only and your own copy....

If the games aren't working a second time, it seems it must be on your end. Are you using ppt 2003. Unfortunately, 2007 WILL screw up a lot of ppt games with many actions... hope this helps some...
Comment by Christopher Chung on September 4, 2009 at 6:33am
just a note to the creator of the "fling the teacher" quizzes. In the "general knowledge" one, the 3rd question's answer is incorrect. In the movie, "Scent of a Woman" it starred Al Pacino, but the answer says Robert De Niro.
Comment by Linda Moy on September 20, 2009 at 8:41am
The BAAM templates do not work. None of the text i put into the slides show up except for the first one. I've tried it on several computers and they are all like that. What's going on?
Comment by Ellen Pham on October 25, 2009 at 4:03am
Linda, could the problem be you are working with a read-only copy? As David suggests above, try saving the powerpoint using "save as", and make sure you are saving it in powerpoint 2003 format (PPT 2007 gives you the option to save in several different formats)
