Merry Krampus Game Template

Christmas is nearly here, so I figured a Christmas-themed game was in order.

This is blank, so you can insert pictures and questions relevant to the Christmas lessons you're doing with your classes.

For this one, after a team answers a question, they're presented with two gifts.
Before they know what the gifts contain, the team has to decide which one they want to keep, and which one they want to give to another team.
Next, they choose which team they want to give a gift to.
Then, you click the gifts to reveal the contents.

As usual, I ran through the whole game on my personal laptop to make sure everything works, but there might be stuff that doesn't work on your work computer / older versions of powerpoint. Try it out before using it in class.

This is a really great template, thanks for sharing! I'm new to posting or I would have just messaged, but could you possibly explain how to set up a repeating cycle of objects (like the scores and avatars on page 2)?

Again, thanks! I will be using this template for my final lessons this week :)

I'll try. Hopefully my explanation will make sense!

Okay, let's say you have three pictures you want to cycle through. We'll call them Picture 1, Picture 2, and Picture 3.

Go to the animation tab.
Select "Picture 1."
Choose "Disappear" from the animation options.
Go to "Trigger" in the Animation bar, and select "Picture 1."
Now "Picture 1" will disappear when you click it.

Now, select "Picture 2."
Choose "Appear" from the animation options.
Go to "Trigger" in the Animation bar, and select "Picture 1." (Not 2!)
Next, go to the "Start" options, and select "With Previous."
Now "Picture 2" will appear when you click "Picture 1."

Now, with "Picture 2" still selected:
Choose "Add animation" from the animation bar, and select "Disappear."
Got to "Trigger" and select "Picture 2."
Now "Picture 2" will disappear when you click it.

Next, select "Picture 3."
Choose "Appear" from the animation options.
Go to "Trigger," and select "Picture 2." (Not 3!)
Then go to the "Start" options, and select "With Previous."
Now "Picture 3" will appear when you click "Picture 2."

Then, with "Picture 3" still selected:
Choose "Add animation" from the animation bar, and select "Disappear."
Go to "Trigger" and select "Picture 3."
Now "Picture 3" will disappear when you click it.

Finally, go back and select "Picture 1."
Choose "Add animation" from the animation bar, and select "Appear."
Got to "Trigger" and select "Picture 3."
Then go to the "Start" options, and select "With Previous."
Now "Picture 1" will appear again when you click "Picture 3."

With all that done, you will be able to cycle through the three pictures by clicking on them.

If you want to use more than three pictures, just remember:
- To make a picture disappear, the Trigger has to be the picture itself.
- To make a picture appear, the Trigger has to be the picture BEFORE it in the cycle, and you MUST select "With Previous" from the Start options.
- For the FIRST picture in the cycle, the "appear" trigger has to be the LAST picture in the cycle. if you don't do that, then the cycle will end with the last picture.

If you want to do it with numbers, just do the same as above, but with Text Boxes instead of Pictures.

I hope that was clear enough!

Have you posted this game anyways else yet? I want to do a lesson on Krampus and this sounds perfect. Maybe google drive?
