Games and board games

Since June 2018, I’ve been making adaptable games and board games for use in the language classroom. All games are made using Excel, which as a spreadsheet program, isn’t really designed for such purposes. However, it remains true that spreadsheets are generally versatile tools which allow us do things which would otherwise be difficult or even impossible.

Although a few of these games have been exported to PDF, the majority remain as spreadsheets. This is because they are generators, which allow you to adapt the content to fit the needs of your class. For example, this generator: Snakes and ladders generator: world capital cities allows you to add your own content. However, if you leave the data source blank, it auto-generates questions and answers on world capital cities. On the other hand, this generator: Snakes and ladders generator does not auto-generate in the same way and requires you to add your own data, i.e. questions, conversation starter statements, etc.

Here is a compilation of all games and board games available to download on this blog:
