Students love playing matching games! They are fantastic for developing one’s memory, as well as testing and practicing a wide variety of different educational topics! With this generator you will be able to create fully customized and interactive matching games with ease!
Please note that this generator is intended for Commercial Use. You can use it to create matching games to sell on Teachers Pay Teachers or any other platform of your choosing. I also have a version of this generator that is meant for personal use available at a significant discount. Click here to check it out!
Before you decide whether or not to purchase this generator, please test out my free sample first to check that it works with your version of PowerPoint.
How the generator works:
All you need to do is add your pictures (I have made this super easy!) and/or text – and then customize the game to your hearts content. Once you are happy with the game, hit “Generate Game” and your matching game will be created!
- You can create your matching game with matching pairs containing identical cards OR cards that match because they are related (e.g. five matches 5)
- You can create your matching game with up to 5 different levels, with a varying number of cards in each level.
- You can make cards with pictures, text or pictures with captions – and you can use a combination too!
- You can customize the cards and game appearance fully – change fonts, backgrounds, colours etc.
- When the game has finished generating, it works entirely with animations – NO MACROS NEEDED! This means that you will be able to save it as a regular PowerPoint file (not macro-enabled) so that players will not need to worry about macros at all.
- When playing the game, a reinforcement message pops up whenever a match has been made, letting players know that they got a match and what the cards were that matched. This is fantastic for ensuring that students learn as they play!
- Players can choose to play in 1 player or 2 player mode. In 2 player mode, they can give themselves a point each time they get a match!
- 3 different versions of each level is created – so players can play the level 3 times over, and it will be different each time! If they click the “play again” button for a third time, they get taken back to the first version of the level and they can replay it.
- If you protect the game with a password (instructions included on how to do this), the clipart is protected!
