We love PowerPoint at BrightCarbon. It’s such a versatile application and can be used for so much more than ‘just’ designing presentations. You can create videos, printed collateral, interactive eLearning, animated GIFs and so much more. But did you know you can create games? We’ve built one for you, using VBA, and it’s free to download and adapt.
Introducing the PowerPoint memory game
You’ve probably played this game as a kid. If you’re as old as I am, you might even have played it with physical cards! The objective is simple, turn two cards at a time to find a pair. If they don’t match, remember where they are and turn them back over.
Using just one PowerPoint slide and a splattering of VBA magic, we’ve built all the game logic for you so you can play the game and then adapt it to make it your own.
All you need to do is download the game, start the slide show and you’re off.
Making it your own
The second slide includes instructions on how to modify the game. You can rebrand it, change the pictures under the card faces and increase/decrease the number of cards you have on a slide. The VBA code is a little more complex to adapt so if you’d like us to help out with that, do contact us.Leave a comment

Pictures in PowerPoint can be tricky to get to grips with. Choosing the right size has an impact on both the file size of your presentation and the maximum monitor/projection size you can use without degrading quality.
