  • Now you can select the kind of game (e.g. hangman, crossword, cryptex) and the source.

Depending on the game, you have 3 options for the source:

a) Use a glossary as the source (all or only one category). Hangman, Crossword and Cryptex all require a glossary as the source.

b) Use questions as the source. The kind of questions are “simple answer”, multiple choice, and true/false.

c) Use a quiz as the source.

Every game needs a different kind of question. For example, hangman needs “simple answer” and millionaire needs multiple choice.
