I recently decided to return to all my games and learning tools to see how they can be updated and any errors that needed to be fixed. My main goal was to make everything easier to use and share with other teachers.

I am particularly happy to say that all files (with only one exception) have been updated to not require any additional fonts. This will make them far easier to take from classroom to classroom and share online.

Click here to view a list of all files with download links and details about how they have been updated. I have included all these files into a single “archive” so that you won’t need to download each file individually. Since I use more advanced features of PowerPoint there is sometimes some confusion about how to use my games. Over the next few weeks I will be uploading videos describing how to use each file on my Facebook page.

Thank you so much for playing my games and I hope they can help make your life as a teacher easier and as rewarding as it was for me!

thanks for this man, great game! used it today in class and my kids loved it  8)

one issue though is with the font/writing.

i teach in the homerooms so it's not feasible for me to install that font on every computer. problem is, if you don't have that Handfish White font installed it seems to default to a font with 'a' and 'g' that is pretty difficult for the kids to read.

i think changing the font to a more standard one like Century Gothic or Aharoni would solve this problem. i would also recommend taking away the 'halo' that is around the words, as well as changing the color to just plain, solid white.

i think that would really increase readability and compatibility.

My favorite font is Comic Sans MS - it's one of the few fonts which uses a cursive a, rather than the print version (it's a common practice for students to copy whichever 'a' they see - so they end up with very weird 'a's otherwise).

this is exactly what my students ended up doing.

i think the font just defaulted to calibri, which is, well, the default font. and you can see from the picture the problem this caused, especially with 'g'.
