Resource Description

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 Individual Classroom Use ONLY. You MAY NOT use it to create bingo games to sell on Teachers Pay Teachers or any other platform or to use commercially in any other way.
I have created this FREE SAMPLE so that you can test whether the generator works with your version of PowerPoint. It is not designed for you to be able to create a large matching game.
Once you have tested it, if you are happy with the way it works, please go and check out the full version of the generator:
Go to my store to find the PERSONAL USE and the COMMERCIAL USE versions of my matching game generator!
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!
Fantastic features:
  • 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)
  • In this FREE SAMPLE you can create a game with 1 level that has 6, 8 or 10 cards
  • 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.
This Matching Game Generator FREE SAMPLE includes:
  • Macro-enabled PowerPoint file for you generate your matching game
  • Instructions on how to use the generator
  • Link to and instructional video showing you how to use the generator.
