David, I see a lot of work has been done here!! Now it is much more transparent and I love the level system - a priceless thing for learners. Wow!
Comment by Felix Im on December 2, 2009 at 12:49am
Why isn't there a game of the week every week?

Hey Felix, while you are waiting... : ) I saw on your profile that you like Chopin. On the second video here, Benjamin Zander does something with a Chopin piece that amazes me. You have to be a little patient to get to it.

What do you think?
Comment by Denise Stewart on March 2, 2010 at 2:42pm
What a great collection of language games! I tried Draw My Thing and found it a fun vocabulary builder. I think my beginners will enjoy it.

Is there a template available for Top 5?

Supporter
Comment by ddeubel on March 5, 2010 at 8:09am
No template Jason but just take a game and edit to your heart's content. That will do the trick . You'll have to come up with your own categories and possible correct answers. More on Top 5 and better edited games on the Top 5 page.
I find the game works best with the worksheet. Individuals track their own and then score also as a group.
Comment by Ana Lúcia Ramalho on March 12, 2010 at 8:17pm
Thanks a lot for your generosity in sharing so wonderful games!!!!!!!
Comment by Luke Percy on March 25, 2010 at 5:00am
Hi David, this may come as a very stupid questoin, but how do you use 'fling the teacher'. I have installed the generator and made a game, but how do i now load it into the actual game? Thanks

Supporter
Comment by ddeubel on March 25, 2010 at 7:37am
Luke,

If you've made or generated a game, just right click on the .swf file. It will play in any web browse. right click and select Open as .... the select Internet explorer or whatever browser you have....

If you saved your questions as .txt you can reload them into the generator, change and then generate a different game using that data.

Hope this works!
Comment by Luke Percy on March 28, 2010 at 11:56pm
Well all i have manged to do is download and install the generator, and create a list of questions which has been saved as a .txt. file. I have scoured the web looking to download the actual game but i just cant seem to get it right?

Comment by ddeubel on March 29, 2010 at 12:49am
Luke,

Did you click the blue joystick in the bottom right corner to generate the .swf game? It will then be stored in a folder on your computer. Did you follow these instructions?

You could check this one out - one of my all time favs. http://playspent.org/   However it is not customizable.  

We also have a few Price is Right powerpoint games where students guess the prices about items. Find those in our Powerpoint game resources. 

That's about all I can think of for now... let me think a little more.
