Yet another use for Storyline...

Hey all... thought I'd share a sample of the birthday scavenger hunt I'm making for my son's birthday and the BINGO tracker I made for his school Bingo night (which proved to be super useful). You click the number to mark it... double-click to unmark. The scavenger hunt is made to run on his iPod so it's sized for that. He'll have to use it to decipher where to go... It still has a little development to go. I've included both source files.

Hope this spurs on some ideas for things like... kids games... and Halloween candy hunts.

Hey, Rob. Tx for sharing. You mentioned the Bingo game was super useful at his school's Bingo night. I'm curious how it was used. I mean, I "get" how Bingo is played, but more wondering what the implementation was with Storyline/a computer. It works well...did you at times become impatient with all those triggers?

Love the music on Reid's birthday story.

great question... so the problem with the "ball tracker" system they have been using could not really be seen by the players. I projected the Articulate version on a screen so the entire audience could see and keep track. We ran both trackers and the manual tracker had some mistakes... which was what gave me the idea to make one to project on a screen. An informal poll of the parents and kids was that it was a way better experience and there were fewer mistake BINGOs... saving us a ton of time between rounds.

Well, that is REALLY cool. If you go to market with that (I'm sure there are a lot of churches and schools out there who'd be interested) do you have to share a cut of the profits with Articulate?


never even thought of that... I really built it out of a frustrating experience...
