Click image to run the MS PowerPoint show.
This Bible puzzle verse game has been programmed using Microsoft Visual Basic for Applications
in the context of a PowerPoint show. You will need Microsoft PowerPoint to be installed on
your computer to run this game. Click the image on the left, and decide whether to
open the file with PowerPoint directly, or whether to save the file to run with PowerPoint later.
When the PowerPoint show commences a macro security alert will
be displayed. Select the button to enable macro content, otherwise the game will not run.
Puzzle Verse is a variation of the traditional Hangman game. The game was designed to be played in a church All-Age or Family Service, by the entire congregation or a smaller group. The presenter interacts with the program to implement the choices of those playing. However, the game can be played successfully by a single individual operating the computer themselves.
The following instructions assume that the PowerPoint show has started running, with macros enabled.
When completed the puzzle displays a picture of a tin of chocolate sweets. The game can be made more exciting by awarding the sweets as a prize if the congregational players win (otherwise the presenter keeps the sweets for himself or herself).
