Buzzword Bingo Games

This week's challenge was Buzz Word Bingo Games.

This is my submission:

I chose the topic of Gamification and used content from Wikipedia for my test content.  I took all of the words from the article, pasted them into Word as plain text.  Removed all the punctuation and then dropped it in a Word Cloud generation program online.  This was the result.

I then used some version of the words in the cloud to fill in the squares on my bingo board.

I then gave the player the option of playing live or with a computer narrator.

This is a simple button set, meaning you can only choose one of the two.

The easiest of the two options to set up was Play Live.  I just needed to provide instructions then give each tile two states.

tile states

Normal is the basic tile and marked is the tile with a translucent red circle over it.  I then copied the marked state to "Visited" because visited is a built in Storyline state which turns on whenever a specific object is clicked.

Finally I created a layer to check if bingo was achieved or not and if so, called a second layer to celebrate.

Here are some of the triggers on the check bingo layer for determining a bingo horizontally.

We do the same thing for vertical.  Diagonal is just checking four squares in two different directions.
