I wanted a ‘family feud’ style gameshow in keynote, but it was a bit complicated trying to make the right answer appear. I found the best way to do it was to have 25 slides with the different possible combinations of hidden/shown answers, then a heap of hyperlinks between various slides depending on what answer was picked. It worked out well.
To change the answers, go to the master page, and edit the text fields that have the answers, be careful not to move any fields around, just edit the text in them.
To play the game, start the slideshow at slide number 6.
If there is a corrrect answer guessed, click on the appropriate box to reveal that answer – complete with sound efffects!
For a wrong answer, click anywhere on the background.
Here is a link to the keynote templates – there are two versions:
This is a very big version that takes a long time to load but has the ‘wrong’ sounds in it:
This is a smaller version that needs the ‘wrong’ sounds to be played from an ipod but is much faster to load.
Here are the rules from wikipedia:
Let me know how it goes!
Here’s a goot tip from Stacey:
Thank you so much for your work! This is awesome – perfect as a review game for my students. But, I was able to make more questions on the same presentation rather than saving a bunch of files. I just copied the two master slides (“Sound” and “No sound”) and renamed them (“Question 2 Sound” and “Question 2 No Sound”). Then I typed in my second question on the two new master sides. Next, I copy/pasted the sequence of 34 possible answer slides and reapplied the “Question 2 Sound” and “Question 2 No Sound” to the appropriate slides. I ended up making about 25 different questions in one file. Thanks again!
