This question (from the forum)
"I'm trying to create a board for a game. In the game there is a red team and a yellow team. Once a team has control of the "board" the subsequent points earned should go to that team"
sounded like a challenge. And I like challenges, certainly when advanced actions in Captivate have to be used. Until today I had never imagined using Captivate for such a goal. And I had some difficulties to understand the rules of this game. The user gave me his graphics and was very patient explaining those rules. It took less time to create the advanced actions :-) . For those interested in the creation of the actions, I did publish an article explaining in detail those actions, here is the link:
In the article you can download the cptx-file and the cheat sheet for the moderator.
- The board is used by the moderator of the game, not by the teams
- Two teams are playing: the 'yellow' and the 'red' team
- A toss decides which team is starting: the moderator enters the result by clicking on the red or yellow rectangle
- Each round corresponds with one slide and has one question
- There are different correct answers, but not always the same number (first round has 5 correct answers, second 6, last 3); a round is finished when all correct answers have been given; total score for each round is 100 points, but the score for each correct answer is different.One example for first question: since 'dog' is the most popular pet it gets a much higher score than a 'rabbit' that is less popular.
- The moderator has a cheat sheet, with the place of the correct answers; if the team gives a correct answer he clicks the corresponding rectangle: the answer is displayed with the corresponding score and this score is added to the result of the team.
- If the answer is incorrect, the moderator clicks the last rectangle (bottom right); a big black cross shows up with the number of attempts left. When the team has given 3 incorrect answers, the other team can continue and gets the score already obtained by the first team.
