Hollywood Squares

Purpose: The purpose of this program is to answer questions correctly to form 3 X’s or O’s across, up and down, or diagonally.  This program is excellent for classroom instruction because you can have 1 or 2 students take up each square and also have 2 contestants.  This allows for up to 20 participants at a time.

How to Play: Have one to two students assigned to each square.  One of the two contestants picks their first square.  Let’s say Susie goes first and she is X.  She chooses square 5. Click on the person in the square in order to go to the question for slide 5.  After clicking on the person, the question for that square appears.  Let’s say the question is “What year did Columbus come to America?“  The person who you have assigned to the middle square then has to answer (or bluff) to that question.  Let’s say that Johnny is square 5 and says “1998”.

Susie then has to agree or disagree with Johnny’s answer.  After she has made her decision, you click the mouse again and the correct answer appears.  Click on the menu arrow to return to the main game board.  If Susie agreed with Johnny, she was wrong.  Therefore, you would put an “O” in the black box in square 5 by clicking in the black box and typing and uppercase “O”.  If Susie disagreed with Johnny, you would put an “X” in the black box in square 5.  Alternate contestants until someone has made 3 in a row.  When that has happened, you can type in a “1” in their scoreboard section by clicking in the black box and entering the “1”.  If you aren’t familiar with adding more slides to the presentation, you can now click on the “Click here if X wins” button to go to the winning slide.  If you want more than one game, you can either copy additional slides, or just create multiple presentations.
