Crossword puzzle

I have seen a couple posts from people that have to do with crossword puzzles, but not many answers for Storyline.  

We have a client that is wanting to create a crossword puzzle to use at a sales rep training meeting. We already have one laid out but I am trying to figure out if it is possible to create it with in Storyline. 

What my initial thought was to use text entry fields and set a variable to each field and then some how say when all variables of a set of fields equals true then make the set correct and show a layer for correct.  That didn't even make sense as I said it but my mind was going all towards if/then statements.

My second thought was to use an image of the crossword board with each potential word cut out and made into hot spots.  When they click on the word they want to solve it brings up the question for that word, and if they get it correct it shows a layer that has that word in the correct place and awards them the points.  I think this will be the easiest but I am trying to figure out how to make it happen.  I know I could make a page with the hotspots and then when they click on the hotspot it either takes them to the question or shows the question.  Can I put questions on layers?  I am just lost as to where to start right now. 

They also would like to make it a 2 player thing but not even sure where to go with that one right now.  Thanks for the help.
