Here is the matching pair memory game produced using the methods shown in the video tutorial:


You can download the PPTX version here: MEMORY GAME

Great stuff!
It works smooth and the levels are really getting harder with the increased no. of cards!

I was so eager when playing I accidentally clicked on a 3rd card before covering the previous 2. Of course it uncovered. I realized there might be (a lot of) people who will accidentally click on a 3rd card disclosing it and even become tempted to uncover more cards. Is it possible to prevent the uncovering of a 3rd card if the uncovered pair doesn't match? Or disable the clicking? Or after a click on a 3rd card automatically cover the mismatched pair prior to uncovering the clicked card? Or automatically cover a mismatched pair right after the 2nd card turns out mismatched? Or something else to prevent such easy access to the uncovering of subsequent cards?

There might be a way to do something along the lines you suggest but it would be hugely complicated and I can't really see how it could be done at the moment. If you have seen the tutorial, you will have seen that each 'card' is made up of four elements already. It may be more feasible with VBA - but I don't do VBA!

If playing solo, the third card can be the first card of your next try. If it's a 2-player game, it could give an advantage to your opponent's next turn. You could play it where you can click on four cards at a time (especially on the bigger game). Or just click on it, turn it over, and carry on.

One issue I've encountered is that some cards occasionally remain in view and you can't get rid of them - not sure why. They work perfectly the next time the game's played.

But it is just a game! Very Happy

PS - Good to have you back!

Thank you.

As a slight aside, my 4 year old grandson is phenomenal with this kind of memory game, usually with physical cards but also with this one on PPT. I've never seen anyone beat him.

That's so true. Children have magnificent memory. I'm always surprised by how well they play memory games. Keep up the education with your grandson! I still don't have any and it seems I'll have to wait a while longer. Than I anticipated.

Best way to check out a new game is by giving it for testing to the kids. They'll be frank enough to say what they think of it and provide good testing ground for developers.
