20 Interactive Presentation Games
- Employee Engagement , Event Planning , Leadership Techniques
Meetings and conferences can be painfully tedious and dull. So much so that the phrase “Death by PowerPoint” has made it into our lexicon. According to Thomas Sowell , an American political economist and commentator, “People who enjoy meetings should not be in charge of anything.”
But if the problem with meetings is that they tend to be boring, the solution lies in finding ways to better engage and entertain your audience. You probably know the feeling of sitting in a meeting, trying to pay attention while one person drones on for an hour.
Even if the purpose of the meeting is to train, disseminate new developments, or even get everyone up to speed on weekly goals, engaging your audience creates a motivation to pay attention.
That’s why interactive presentation games are a great way to re-energizing meetings by involving audiences in the presentation. Interactive presentation turn passive listeners into active participants. Games allow the attendees to learn new skills, think of solutions within a short time period, and solve problems together.
MeetingPulse equips your team with the tools and resources to create engaging events. With that in mind, here’s our guide to a few popular interactive presentation games.

1. Project Jeopardy
This game is designed to make the presentation of reports more fun and interactive. The lead person on the report creates cards that have answers from the report.
For example, the card reads “25%.” The rest of the team is supposed to ask the correct question corresponding to the “25%” answer on the card. The question could be something like, “What was the company revenue growth for the quarter?”
How to play: Give everyone the URL to your MeetingPulse meeting. Display the question on your screen and create multiple choice answers or leave it open-ended. The answers will pop up on the administrator’s screen in real-time, and you can share the answers to see how many people got it right.
2. Idea Box Game
The Idea Box game is excellent for brainstorming meetings where employees can share ideas about a project or product . It helps get the creative juices flowing and might even lead to some usable prototypes. Instead of having one speaker after another speak about their idea, having a team create an idea box creates a space for collaboration to further spark innovation.
How to play: Use the MeetingPulse brainstorming tool to have teams vote and collect feedback about the products. Have each attendee log in to your MeetingPulse link — a virtual Idea Box. Give small groups thirty minutes to brainstorm, then allow submissions.
At the end of the exercise, each team should have the product name, features and functions, marketing taglines, and other vital product details.
Once each team has completed their box they’re invited to share it with the rest of the team who finally vote for the best box. Their ideas will appear on the screen right away, and participants can upvote or downvote in Reddit-style fashion and even submit emoji reactions.
3. The Introduction Game
This game is ideal for a new group of team members meeting for the first time on a mutual project or new hires joining a team. Give the new hires a chance to introduce themselves in an unforgettable manner.
How to play: Ask the new members to bring a personal item or a favorite song. During the meeting, introduce them by letting their song blare for a few minutes on the sound system and then ask them to say something about themselves. If you’re using the personal item, ask them to talk about the item and what it means to them.
4. The talking stick
This activity makes sure that anyone who has a contribution not only gets to do so, but also that they get to speak uninterrupted. Using the talking stick is a great, rapid-fire way to focus the meeting on deep and meaningful contributions.
How to play: Form a circle and make sure everyone’s seated. Before the discussion begins, everyone should agree that the moderator has the power to choose whoever speaks next. Once a member finishes talking, they should put the stick back in the center for the next person.
Use the MeetingPulse audience feedback capability to gain insight right away. Choose up to four emojis and allow your audience to react as they listen to new ideas.
5. Telephone game
The telephone game is used typically as an ice breaker or to liven up a group after a couple of mind-numbing presentations. While it doesn’t really work with a very large group, a sizable number like 10 to 15 people is just right.
How to play: The meeting leader whispers the latest company marketing strategy used to the person on their left who is then supposed to relay the message to the next person and on and on until the last person gets the message.
The last person then gets to tell the rest of the team the final message, and you can compare it to the primary message from the lead.
6. The trivia competition
You can use this game to test the attendees’ trivia knowledge of the company or of general business trends . Create a trivia competition where the members play for points and the winner gets a prize. Project the points for everyone to see the winner.
How to play: Formulate questions related to the company and use them for the trivia test. You can use MeetingPulse to create the questions, and set the timer to begin the game together. To add an extra touch of fun, include images with your multiple choice questions. Visuals add to the level of engagement and give your meetings an extra edge.
7. Fill in the phrase
Check out Meeting Pulse for Cool and creative ways to make polling questions and Quizzes!
This game requires participants to fill in blanks on a survey or report. The survey or report should not be complete until the end of the presentation. This game rewards audiences for listening, and you can even provide some sort of prize.
How to play: Create a report for attendees that has blanks. As you continue with the presentation, invite them to fill in the blanks from the information you are giving. Not only does the audience remain engaged, but they retain crucial information better.
MeetingPulse integrates with Powerpoints , so you can use our single answer polling feature to play this game and display the results directly in your PowerPoint presentation.
8. Word of the day
Have a word of the day game as part of your presentation or meeting. It can be a phrase or a word.
How to play: The presenter should weave the word or phrase into their presentation and the audience acknowledges its use by shouting back. The word must come from the team and not the presenter. This activity keeps everyone alert. Sometimes shouting can be distracting in the middle of a meeting.
In this case, use the MeetingPulse emoji feature, and everyone can submit ? when you use the word “key learnings.”
9. The 20 questions game
You get 20 questions to help you identify a picture that you can’t see, but the audience can. The audience can only lead you with yes or no questions. Use this game to liven up the audience.
How to play: The audience will choose a picture that you can’t see. Have someone submit a photo and display it on the MeetingPulse user dashboard. Get blindfolded and begin to ask questions regarding the picture. You get only twenty questions to get it right.
If you’re an advertising agency, you can use this test your employees’ memory and see if they remember what you worked on. To keep track of all the questions and responses, have the audience choose “yes” or “no” by using a polling tool instead of having them shout it out.
10. Call and response
This game keeps the audience focused. The leader in the meeting calls out a phrase randomly during their presentation and the audience responds to it .
How to play: Agree on the action to be taken every time the phrase is called out. The second the presenter calls out the word, your audience can dance, clap or just rise and seat. Alternatively, they can respond with a phrase, word, or an emoji using MeetingPulse.
11. What would I have done?
In this game, ask each member of the team what their alternative career would be. The point of the game is to open up to each other and foster conversation.
How to play: Each member writes down their alternative career and waits their turn to reveal. The audience collectively asks “What would you have done?” and the selected member responds explaining why they chose that alternative. This is another great game you can play virtually, especially if you’re working with a big team.
With MeetingPulse , you can find out everyone’s alternative career and even get some statistics.
12. Fabulous flags
In this game , team members draw things that matter to them on their flag. This is known as the personal flag game, and it’s an excellent ice breaker activity.
How to play: Everyone gets 10 minutes to draw objects or symbols that represent something meaningful in their lives. Each person gets two minutes to explain the items on their flag.
Similar to 20 questions, this game also tests your trivia. You keep in mind a person, place, or thing, and the audience has to guess. The game is a bit more complex because the player can talk back to the audience and distract them from the name.
How to play: The audience asks leading questions to which the player responds with a yes or no. If they ask a specific question like “Does the celebrity’s name start with B?” then the player can respond with “It’s not Brad Pitt.”
This game is logistically easy to plan because all you need to do is formulate the poll questions and integrate them into your PowerPoint with MeetingPulse .
14. Candy introductions
This is a game that allows people to get to know each other while enjoying some sweet treats. It’s excellent for training sessions where participants are complete strangers, providing general topics for introductions that employees can elaborate upon further.
How to play: The participants choose different types of candy from a bag and use each to represent different topics about themselves during the introduction. They can talk about family, career, hobbies, unexpected characteristic and dream destinations.
15. Crazy job interview
In this game, one participant tries to convince the others why they would be the best for a certain job. They have to expound on qualities given by another player and how those qualities make them a good fit.
How to play: The participant is given a career, like a supermodel. Then they are given random phrases like “angry with the queen” or “intellectually incompatible” and they have to use these phrases to explain why they would be great at being a supermodel.
16. The elimination game
The elimination game helps participants to get to know each other, using a series of questions to find out the most common and most rare similarities amongst people within your company.
How to play: The whole room is asked to stand up. The leader then asks elimination questions like “how many are attending this conference for the first time?” That group gets to sit down. The next is “remain standing if this is your fourth consecutive attendance.” The rest of the group sits down. And the elimination questions continue.
17. Would you rather
This is a fun game to liven up the room, giving participants two choices of something they can do. They have to choose the lesser evil.
How to play: The player is given a question with two very bad or very good outcomes. For example, if the employees are afraid of heights, ask, “Would you rather go sky diving or bungee jumping?”
If you want to play this game with a large group of people, you can use MeetingPulse to get answers in real time. This game can also provide valuable insight for you. For instance, you can ask, “Would you rather have a breakfast spread or small desserts for our next meeting?”
Think up a word and have everyone else try to figure it out. Expect some hilarious answers as everyone chips in.
How to play: Jumble up the letters but ensure that they create a five or six letter word anagram when correctly aligned. Only the presenter should suggest the word, and the activity should be timed. People can submit their answers live on MeetingPulse .
19. Two truths and a lie
The players get to tell two truths and one lie about themselves and the audience deciphers which one is the lie.
How to play: The player chooses a topic, like “career.” They tell two real facts about their career and one lie. The audience then decides which statement is false and why they believe that.
20. Choose the Agenda
In this activity, the participants choose the agenda of the meeting instead of being told what it is. This allow them to address burning issues.
How to play: Participants are invited to submit their agendas, which are shared by everyone and then voted on. The one with the most votes becomes the main agenda for the meeting. This gives participants control over the meeting as well.
You can use MeetingPulse’s brainstorming tool with the upvoting feature for this!
Now that you know some of the best interactive presentation games, you’re ready to host your next event with new and creative ways to keep your audience engaged. MeetingPulse is a great tool and resource for you to make your presentations more memorable and — dare we say it — fun.

Which of these 14 presentation games do you like best? Take a look and let us know your favorites:
1. Live Trivia Competition
A great way to ramp up the excitement and engagement is to enable a little bit of friendly competition. Trivia is an easy way to do this—plus, it can be whole-group inclusive and large-audience friendly (if you use the right tools).

2. Sing and Swing
To really liven up your group, encourage your listeners to play Sing and Swing. This activity is best for long presentations because it boosts energy, creates a fun, light-hearted environment, and makes people laugh a lot.
Here's how to play:
- Before your presentation, pick a well-known song and rewrite the chorus (replace parts of it with words and phrases from your presentation)
- When you're ready to play, show the song on your screen.
- Invite your audience to sing it with you!
If you have a fun group or a class of energetic students, consider adding choreography to engage your audience even more.
3. 20 Questions
If you want a presentation game that requires your listeners to talk more than you, 20 Questions is the one to play! A classic and simple activity, this game immediately boosts engagement and gets people laughing.
Here's how to play: Have someone put an appropriate image or word on the screen behind you (this can be an audience member you trust or a colleague or co-presenter). To make things more fun, put on a blindfold so that everyone knows you can't cheat. From there, ask 20 "yes or no" questions to guess what's displayed on the screen. Your group should respond "yes" or "no" to guide you to the correct answer.
4. Scavenger Hunt Challenge
To get your audience out of their seats, a scavenger hunt challenge is one of the best interactive games for presentations. It'll immediately energize your audience , team, or students while giving them a fun way to learn.
There are tons of in-person and virtual scavenger hunt ideas you can use to dive deeper into your topic or help everyone learn about one another. But if you want a ready-to-play game that you can instantly launch without having any tech skills, here's a fun one to play:

This conversational element will help engage your group!
5. Group Word Clouds
Whether you're speaking to team members, students, or conference-goers, this activity lets you ask questions and get your listeners' thoughts on specific topics.
This game is the perfect way to start your presentation, especially if you're discussing something with a wide range of opinions or are unsure how much your listeners know about a certain subject. Group Word Clouds is also beneficial if you want to do a quick meeting pulse or know how your listeners feel going into your presentation—understanding their energy levels and mood can help you adjust (if necessary) to get maximum engagement and excitement.

Here's how to play the game: Before the event, ask group members to bring a favorite song or item to the presentation (you can do this by emailing them). When you're ready to play, ask each person to introduce themself, present their song or item, and explain why they picked it. For those sharing a song, have them play it on their phones before they explain why it's their favorite.
7. Live Poll Questions
When you have a large group, it's not easy to find ways to boost engagement—but poll questions are the solutions, especially when they're live and interactive. With this unique setup, large groups engage by answering questions and seeing their answers displayed in a fun way.
Your job is to make sure you actually find a game that showcases responses uniquely to captivate your group. For a quick and great option, here's a popular icebreaker activity that promises to display responses using fun formats like word clouds, donut charts, live graphs, and per-player:

Want to see where your audience, students, or team lands on controversial topics? Then, energize your presentation with a fun, creative game called Controversial Questions. This activity has prompts that inspire lively debates, so it's a great way to get your group excited and chatty.
However, to maintain a positive environment, make sure to find a tool that offers an office-friendly, classroom-friendly, and conference-friendly game. You don't want to sour the mood by creating uncomfortable division during your presentation.

10. Word of the Day
With this activity, you can keep your audience, team, or students engaged throughout your entire presentation. This game requires listeners to be alert and recognize whenever you say the word of the day.
Here's how to play: At the beginning of your presentation, tell your group the word of the day (it can also be a phrase if you'd prefer). Say that you'll weave the word into your presentation and that your audience must shout it out whenever you mention it.
11. Mini Activity: Group Icebreaker
Whether you're doing an in-person or virtual presentation, you need to warm up your audience to get things started on a positive note. The best way to do that is with a quick icebreaker game.

This activity is one of the best games for presentations because it's simple yet fun and great at helping listeners get to know each other. You can play it at the beginning of your presentation or in the middle to give your group a chance to stretch their legs.
- Before your event, create a list of "yes or no" questions.
- Once you're ready to play, tell your group to stand up (if you're doing a virtual presentation, make sure everyone's video is on).
- Ask each question one by one.
- Tell attendees to stand if their answer is "yes" and sit if their answer is "no."
The questions can relate to your topic or be totally random. Also, if you'd prefer to thin out the number of people standing, you can take a creative twist and ask your questions by saying something like this: "Stay standing if (insert scenario)." When phrasing each question this way, the game will end with one person standing. To acknowledge the winner, you can give them a round of applause or award them a prize.
13. Conference Opener Icebreaker
If you're speaking at a big conference, you need an interactive game for presentations that can get everyone involved and ensure every voice is heard. To achieve these goals, you should create an icebreaker game that works for large groups .

14. Two Truths and a Lie
This classic game is a fun, energizing way to help your listeners get to know one another. It's perfect for small in-person or virtual groups and is an ideal activity for the beginning of your presentation.
Here's how to play: Pick any topic (for the purposes of this article, the topic will be "movies"). In no particular order, say two movies you've really watched and one you haven't watched. Ask your audience to guess which statement is the lie. The winner picks the next topic and says two truths and a lie.
Be Memorable With Presentation Games
Oftentimes, people forget presentations within a week or even days, and that's because the discussions are boring. But you don't work hard preparing a presentation for it to be forgotten. If you want your message to stick, all you have to do is make it enjoyable without being corny.
If you want to be remembered and actually get people engaged, you need to make your presentation fun and enjoyable, without coming off as corny or desperate to please. Ivan Dimitrijevic, 10 Secrets of Making Every Presentation Fun, Engaging, and Enjoyable

10 interactive presentation games for large teams
“Welcome to Panel Island, one of my favorite sessions of all time. Not because I get to vote nice people off, but because you get to vote nice people off.” – Mark Fordham, iMeet Central
Four experts. Three rounds. One survivor. That was the wrinkle Mark Fordham, VP of Customer Success at iMeet Central, added to his company’s recurring panel discussions .
Each panelist answers specific questions related to his or her field. Then the audience votes for their favorite responses. The panelist with the fewest votes is voted off the “island.”
Discussions continue until only one panelist remains. Poll Everywhere handles the voting. Between talks, the audience selects their favorite speaker using their mobile devices, and the results appear in an animated chart in real time.
This is just one of many ways presenters and educators use interactive presentation games to keep the audience on its toes. Here are eight more ideas for your next class, workshop, or meeting.
1. Process of elimination
This presentation game for 10 or more players helps the audience get to know each other
This game provides valuable insights into your audience members, while also giving them a chance to stretch their legs.
Here’s how it works: Have everybody in your audience stand up. You’ll then pose prompts one at a time. Attendees’ responses to those prompts will dictate whether they stand or sit.
For example, let’s say that you’re speaking at a long-running and widely-respected conference in your industry. Once your whole audience is on their feet, you’d start by saying something like, “Sit down if this is your first time attending this conference.”
From there, you could keep thinning your crowd by saying, “Stay standing if you’ve attended this conference at least five times before,” and so on and so forth until only a few people – or only one person – remain on their feet. At that point, you could offer a prize or a round of applause.

2. Two truths and a lie
Welcome new team members, or reintroduce old ones, with this presentation game
This classic icebreaker game works great with a recent Poll Everywhere addition: instruction image . Now you can present a photo alongside that person’s two truths and a lie so everyone knows exactly who they’re voting on.
Here’s how it works: create a new multiple choice activity in Poll Everywhere. Enter the participant’s name as the title, and two truths and a lie as the responses. Select the checkmarks next to the two truths to do a big reveal after voting ends.
After you create this activity, add an instruction image depicting the person you’re talking about. Be sure to check the box next to ‘Show instructions image on bar chart’ so the image is always visible.
You can see in the image above that I changed the bar chart to a column chart. I find this improves readability on the presentation screen since the text isn’t sandwiched between chart and image. Try to make your two truths and lie as short as possible. Shorter responses are always easier to read in the chart.
See just how jumbled a phrase can get when it’s passed one-by-one around the room
Do you remember the game of telephone that you played as a kid? It’s just as fun as an adult.
Here’s how it works: Telephone starts by whispering a sentence into someone’s ear. Then that person repeats what you said to the person next to them. The chain continues on until the final person states aloud what they heard. It’s often something totally different from the original — with hilarious results.
You can use this in your presentation in an educational way by starting with a question that the audience wants to know (i.e. “How did Company XYZ increase their sales by 45%?”). Then, whisper the answer to the first person. Make sure to speak in a complete sentence — rather than just a few words — to make it tougher for your participants.
Despite the fact that you started the chain by whispering, “Company XYZ used content marketing to engage prospects,” you’re sure to end up with something quite ridiculous by the end.
A little advice: If you want to make this game go faster, you can do this by individual audience rows, instead of involving the whole room. It can also be fun to compare the different end results. Just know that the more people you have involved, the more twisted (and funny) the result becomes.

4. Riddle me this
Wake up the audience with a brain-teaser, then reveal everyone’s responses at once
Riddles are a natural fit for Poll Everywhere word clouds . This activity transforms audience responses into a colorful, animated word cloud. Repeated words grow larger within the cloud.
Here’s how it works: create a new word cloud activity. Make the title a riddle that has a single-word answer (not a sentence or a list). Create the activity, and on the following screen locate the ‘Show results’ button. Click it so that a picture of two phones appears. Wait until everyone has responded to your riddle, then click ‘Show results’ again to reveal the finished word cloud. If the correct answer is the largest word in the cloud, that means most of the audience got it right.
By hiding the results and revealing them after everyone has voted, you prevent participants from submitting whatever seems like the most popular answer. When the results are hidden, there is a small counter in the lower left that shows you how many have responded. That way, you know when voting is finished.
5. 20 questions
Deduce a hidden image or photo by flying through 20 yes-or-no questions with the audience
Who doesn’t love a good game of 20 questions? Fortunately, it’s incredibly easy to play with your presentation audience.
Here’s how it works: display a word or picture (it could be anything from a celebrity to an animal) on the screen behind you — so that you can’t see it but the audience can. You can even ask someone to blindfold you if you don’t want to run the risk of cheating.
Now, your entire audience can see what’s on the screen, and it’s up to you to ask twenty “yes or no” questions that will help you guess exactly what’s being displayed.
Invite audience members to just yell out their answers to your questions simultaneously to create a lively game that’s sure to give your audience’s enthusiasm a boost. Double down on this by setting a 60-second timer for the questions. When time runs out, it’s time to guess.
6. Would you rather?
Learn how the audience thinks with a tricky “Would you rather?” scenario that divides the group
This presentation game is more of a conversation-starter than a traditional game. There should never be a right or wrong answer in a “Would you rather?” scenario. The winner is whoever best justifies their choice and why it’s the best one for them.
Here’s how it works: create a new multiple choice activity. Begin the title with “Would you rather…” and enter the two responses as the two scenarios. After you create this activity, locate the ‘ Visual settings ‘ button. Select it, then locate ‘ Donut chart ‘ and select that too. Doing so changes the look of your activity from a bar chart to a donut chart. Donuts are a great way to clearly visualize the audience’s preference between two choices.
To take this game a step further, start a discussion after the voting ends. Ask everyone who voted for one option to raise their hands. Then, go around the room and ask people to explain in a few words why they selected one option over the other. Save and email a copy of the donut chart afterwards as a memento.
Challenge the audience to come up with a unique solution to your anagram that on one else will guess
The crux of this presentation game is solving an anagram: a jumble of letters that can be rearranged into many different words. This is a fun mental exercise for the audience, doubly so if you’re breaking up multiple, back-to-back presentations.
Here’s how it works: create a Poll Everywhere word cloud . Select an anagram that’s at least five or six characters long, such as the one above, so that the audience has plenty of possibilities. If you want to give this a competitive edge, challenge the audience to submit words no one else will think of. These words appear as the smallest words in the cloud. If you do this, be sure to hide responses while everyone responds. Otherwise participants will copy each other’s responses.
For added fun, set the number of submissions to unlimited. Doing so rewards players for coming up with multiple unique words (thereby increasing their chances of winning) or by strategically submitting the same word multiple times to inflate its size in the cloud. You can see who submitted what on the activity’s response history page .
8. Trivia competition
Quiz the audience with multiple choice questions. A leaderboard updates live with the scores.
Nothing hooks the audience’s attention faster than putting their pride on the line. Do this with a friendly trivia competition. Trivia questions are fun. But graded trivia questions are a contest. Poll Everywhere has the perfect activity for this scenario.
Here’s how it works: create a Poll Everywhere competition . This activity is a fully customizable trivia contest. You create the questions. The audience plays for points, and a leaderboard shows everyone who is in the lead. The audience earns points for responding correctly. They also earn bonus points for responding quickly. Expect to hear gasps and cheers each time the leaderboard reveals the new point totals.
Competitions is a great interactive presentation game for energizing the audience. People can compete individually or group into teams and respond from a single phone or device. A timer adds some extra pressure and keeps the competition moving. Don’t want the added stress? Switch off the timer. Either way, when you reach the end the winner gets a fun confetti surprise.
9. Choose your own adventure
Let the audience vote to control the flow of your presentation
One of the best ways to reinforce new information is to give people the opportunity to use that information in some way. Poll Everywhere multiple choice activities are a simple, customizable way to create that opportunity for almost any topic.
Here’s how it works: Say you just finished presenting a lengthy seminar on how to sell vacuums door-to-door. Everyone in the audience has scribbled pages of notes on what to say to whom and when. But none of them has actually sold a vacuum, yet.
Create a choose-your-own-adventure style conversation using a series of multiple choice activities. Each activity is a different line from your fictional vacuum purchaser, and the audience votes on different replies. Whichever reply gets the most votes is the one that advances the conversation, for better or worse.
This style of questioning has plenty of applications besides vacuum salesmanship, but the core function should be constant: Giving the audience a simply way to reflect upon, and apply, what they just learned.
10. Fill in the blanks
A simple worksheet does double duty during presentations
Here’s how it works: Create a worksheet and print out several copies before your presentation. Each question on the worksheet should be an important line from your presentation – but there’s a word or phrase missing. Ask the audience to fill in those gaps as they listen.
This accomplishes two very important things for the audience. First, the questions on the worksheet make it obvious what the key points or takeaways are from your presentation. They know what to focus on and pay special attention to. Second, the completed worksheet doubles as a resource that summarizes what you just presented. Attendees can refer back to it later if they forget something.
You can gamify this exercise ever-so-slightly by entering everyone who completed the worksheet before the end of your presentation into a raffle. It’s up to you whether or not you announce this beforehand, or have it be a surprise at the end.

Is there any event that hasn’t been immediately improved with some trivia?
A live quiz is an evergreen, ever-engaging way to consolidate your presentation’s info and check the understanding of it all amongst your audience. Expect big laughs as your audience competes fiercely over who was listening to your presentation the most complex.
How to make it…
- Set up your questions on free quizzing software .
- Present your quiz to your players, who join by typing your unique code into their phones.
- Take your players through each question, and they race to get the correct answer the fastest.
- Check the final leaderboard to reveal the winner!
Learn how to set up your presentation quiz for free in just a few minutes! 👇
Put your audience in your shoes. Give them a scenario related to your presentation and see how they would deal with it.
Let’s say you’re a teacher giving a presentation on dinosaurs. After presenting your info, you would ask something like…
A stegosaurus is chasing you, ready to snap you up for dinner. How do you escape?
After each person submits their answer, you can take a vote to see which is the crowd’s favourite response to the scenario.
This is one of the best presentation games for students as it gets young minds whirring creatively. But it also works great in a work setting and can have a similar freeing effect, which is especially significant as a meeting ice breaker .
- Create a brainstorming slide and write your scenario at the top.
- Participants join your presentation on their phones and type their responses to your scenario.
- Afterwards, each participant votes for their favourite (or top 3 favourites) answers.
- The participant with the most votes is revealed as the winner!
#3: Key Number | Games for Presentation
No matter the topic of your presentation, there’s sure to be a lot of numbers and figures flying around.
As an audience member, keeping track of them isn’t always easy, but one of the interactive presentation games that makes it easier is Key Number .
Here, you offer a simple prompt of a number, and the audience responds with what they think it refers to. For example, if you write ‘ $25′ , your audience might respond with ‘our cost per acquisition’ , ‘our daily budget for TikTok advertising’ or ‘the amount John spends on jelly tots every day’ .
- Create a few multiple-choice slides (or open-ended slides to make it more complicated).
- Write your key number at the top of each slide.
- Write the answer options.
- Participants join your presentation on their phones.
- Participants select the answer they think the critical number relates to (or type in their answer if open-ended).
If keeping track of numbers and figures is challenging, it can be even tougher to follow entire processes or workflows explained in a presentation.
To cement this information in your audience’s mind, Guess the Order is a fantastic game for presentations.
You write the steps of a process, jumble them up, and then see who can put them in the right order the fastest.
- Create a ‘Correct Order’ slide and write your statements.
- Statements are automatically jumbled up.
- Players join your presentation on their phones.
- Players race to put the statements in the correct order.
You might have heard of this one as a great icebreaker, but it’s also one of the top presentation games for checking who’s paying attention.
And it’s pretty simple to do. Just think of two statements using the information in your presentation, and make another one up. Players have to guess which is the one you’ve made up.
This one is a great re-capping game and works for students and colleagues.
- Create a list of 2 truths and one lie covering different topics in your presentation.
- Read out two truths and one lie and get participants to guess the lie.
- Participants vote for the lie either by hand or through a multiple-choice slide in your presentation.
#6: 4 Corners – Interactive Presentation Games
The best presentations are ones that spark a bit of creative thinking and discussion. There’s no better presentation game for evoking this than 4 Corners.
The concept is simple. Present a statement based on something from your presentation that’s open to different points of view. Depending on each player’s opinion, they move to a corner of the room labelled ‘strongly agree’, ‘agree’, ‘disagree’ or ‘strongly disagree’ .
Maybe something like this:
An individual is shaped more by nature than nurture.
Once everyone is in their corner, you could have a structured debate between the four sides to bring different opinions to the table.
- Set up the ‘strongly agree’, ‘agree’, ‘disagree’ and ‘strongly disagree’ corners of your room (if running a virtual presentation, then a simple show of hands could work).
- Write some statements which are open to different opinions.
- Read out the statement.
- Each player stands in the right corner of the room, depending on their view.
- Discuss the four different viewpoints.
Live word clouds are always a beautiful addition to any interactive presentation. If you want our advice, include them whenever you can – presentation games or not.
If you do plan to use one for a game in your presentation, a great one to try is Obscure Word Cloud .
It works on the same concept as the popular UK game show Pointless . Your players are given a statement and have to name the most obscure answer they can. The least-mentioned correct answer is the winner!
Take this example statement:
Name one of our top 10 countries for customer satisfaction.
The most popular answers may be India, USA and Brazil , but the points go to the least mentioned correct country.
- Create a word cloud slide with your statement at the top.
- Players submit the most obscure answer they can think of.
- The most obscure one appears most diminutive on the board. Whoever submitted that answer is the winner!

#8: Heart, Gun, Bomb.- Interactive Presentation Games
This one’s a great game to use in the classroom, but if you’re not looking for presentation games for students, it also works wonders in a casual work setting.
Heart, Gun, Bomb is a game in which teams take turns to answer questions presented in a grid. If they get an answer right, they either get a heart, a gun or a bomb…
- A ❤️ grants the team an extra life.
- A 🔫 takes away one life from any other team.
- A 💣 takes away one heart from the team who got it.
All teams start with five hearts. The team with the most hearts at the end, or the only surviving team, is the winner!
- Before starting, create a grid table for yourself with either a heart, gun or bomb occupying each grid (on a 5×5 grid, this should be 12 hearts, nine guns and four bombs).
- Present another grid table to your players (5×5 for two teams, 6×6 for three groups, etc.)
- Write a figure stat (like 25%) from your presentation into each grid.
- Split players into the desired number of teams.
- Team 1 chooses a grid and says the meaning behind the number ( for example, the number of customers last quarter ).
- If they’re wrong, they lose a heart. If they’re right, they get either a seat, gun or bomb, depending on what the grid corresponds to on your grid table.
- Repeat this with all the teams until there’s a winner!

#9: Match Up – Interactive Presentation Games
Here’s another quiz-type question that can be a great addition to your roster of presentation games.
It involves a set of prompt statements and a set of answers. Each group is jumbled; the players must match the information with the correct answer as quickly as possible.
Again, this one works well when the answers are numbers and figures.
- Create a ‘Match Pairs’ question.
- Fill out the set of prompts and answers, which will automatically shuffle.
- Players match each prompt with its answer as fast as possible to score the most points.
If there’s a more versatile presentation game tool than the humble spinner wheel , we aren’t aware of it.
Adding the random factor of a spinner wheel might be just what you need to keep engagement in your presentation high. There are presentation games you can use with this, including…
- Choosing a random participant to answer a question.
- Choosing a bonus prize after getting an answer correct.
- Choosing the next person to ask a Q&A question or give a presentation.
- Create a spinner wheel slide and write the title at the top.
- Write the entries for the spinner wheel.
- Spin the wheel and see where it lands!
Tip 💡 You can choose the AhaSlides spinner wheel to use your participants’ names, so you don’t have to fill in the entries manually! Learn more interactive presentation techniques with AhaSlides
#11: Q&A Balloons – Interactive Presentation Games
This one’s a great way to turn a regular end-of-presentation feature into a fun, engaging game.
It’s got all the hallmarks of a standard Q&A, but this time, all the questions are written on balloons.
It’s a super simple one to set up and play, but you’ll see how motivated participants are to ask questions when it involves balloons!
- Hand out a deflated balloon and a Sharpie to each participant.
- Each participant blows up the balloon and writes their question on it.
- Each participant bats their balloon to where the speaker is standing.
- The speaker answers the question and then pops or throws away the balloon.
So, how do you feel about AhaSlides’s creative ideas for presentations? Being by far the most popular presentation tool on the planet, you may want to know if there are any presentation games to play on PowerPoint.
Unfortunately, the answer is no. PowerPoint takes presentations incredibly seriously and doesn’t have a lot of time for interactivity or fun of any kind.
But there’s good news…
It is possible to directly embed presentation games into PowerPoint presentations with free help from AhaSlides.
You can import your PowerPoint presentation to AhaSlides with the click of a button, then place interactive presentation games like the ones above directly between your presentation slides.

15 Interactive Presentation Games to Engage Your Audience
In the world of presentations and public speaking, engaging your audience is crucial. A captivating presentation can leave a lasting impact and ensure that your message is heard and retained. One effective way to achieve this engagement is by incorporating interactive presentation games into your talks.
Interactive presentation games break the monotony of traditional slideshows and transform passive listeners into active participants. In this blog, we’ll explore 15 interactive presentation games that can make your presentations more dynamic, memorable, and enjoyable for your audience.
Why Use Interactive Presentation Games?
Traditional presentations often involve passive listening, which can lead to disengagement and limited retention of information. On the other hand, interactive presentation games create an environment of active participation.
Making your presentations more memorable and impactful. They foster interaction, feedback, and collaboration, turning your audience into active participants rather than passive observers.
Benefits of Engaging Your Audience
Engaging your audience with interactive presentation games offers numerous benefits:
- Increased Engagement: Interactive presentation games grab your audience’s attention and keep them actively involved throughout the presentation.
- Improved Information Retention: Active participation enhances the retention of key information, ensuring that your message sticks with your audience long after the presentation is over.
- Enhanced Learning: Games encourage a deeper understanding of the subject matter, making it easier for your audience to grasp complex concepts.
- Better Audience Connection: By involving your audience, you establish a stronger connection, making them feel valued and heard.
- Immediate Feedback: Games provide opportunities for instant feedback, allowing you to address questions and concerns in real time.
- Fun and Entertainment: Interactive fun games add an element of fun and entertainment to your presentations, making them more enjoyable for your audience.
How to Choose the Right Presentation Games
Selecting the appropriate presentation games depends on your audience, topic, and objectives. Consider factors such as the size of your audience, the level of interactivity you desire, and the technology available. Tailor your choice of games to align with your presentation goals, ensuring they enhance your message rather than distract from it.
Now, let’s explore 15 interactive presentation games that you can incorporate into your presentations to engage your audience effectively:
01. Polling and Surveys
Polling and surveys involve asking questions to your audience and collecting their responses in real time. This game is useful for engaging the audience and gathering valuable data or opinions.
Example: During a marketing presentation, you can use polling to ask the audience which social media platform they use most frequently for product discovery, with response options like “Facebook,” “Instagram,” or “Twitter.” The results can guide your marketing strategy.
02. Quiz and Trivia
Quiz and trivia games challenge the audience’s knowledge of a specific subject. Correct-answer questions encourage competition and learning because participants’ scores are added up.
Example: In a history lecture, you can organize a trivia quiz about historical events. Ask questions like, “Who was the first President of the United States?” and award points for correct answers to make learning history engaging.
03. Interactive Q&A Sessions
Interactive Q&A sessions allow the audience to ask questions and engage in a live dialogue with the presenter. This interactive presentation game promotes engagement, clarification, and in-depth discussions.
Example: After a business strategy presentation, open the floor for an interactive Q&A session where the audience can ask questions about the proposed strategies, fostering a deeper understanding of the material.
04. Gamified Scenarios
Gamified scenarios present real-world situations or challenges to the audience. Participants make decisions, and the consequences of those choices are revealed, creating an immersive learning experience.
Example: In leadership training, simulate a business scenario where participants make decisions as managers. Their choices affect the company’s success, making the learning process engaging and interactive.
05. Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality Experiences
Virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) games provide immersive 3D experiences. Participants can explore virtual environments or interact with augmented elements.
Example: In a product launch presentation, use AR to allow the audience to visualize how the product would fit into their homes. They can use their smartphones to see a virtual presentation version of the product in their living rooms.
06. Storytelling Challenges
Storytelling challenges encourage participants to create and share their stories, fostering creativity and personal expression.
Example: In a team-building workshop, ask each participant to share a personal success story related to teamwork. This engages the audience and builds a sense of connection among participants.
07. Collaborative Whiteboard Activities
In real-time, collaborative whiteboard activities involve multiple participants contributing ideas, drawings, or annotations on a digital whiteboard. This game fosters teamwork and brainstorming.
Example: During a brainstorming session for a new project, use a digital whiteboard tool where team members can simultaneously sketch out their ideas and add comments. This promotes collaboration and idea generation.
08. Interactive Polls and Word Clouds
Interactive polls and word clouds engage the audience by having them vote or input keywords related to a topic. The results are displayed dynamically.
Example: In a conference PowerPoint presentation about technology trends, ask the audience to submit keywords related to the most exciting emerging technologies. Display the results in a word cloud to visualize the collective interest.
09. Simulations and Case Studies
Simulations and case studies replicate real-life scenarios for participants to make decisions and see the outcomes. This game is effective for practical learning.
Example: In a business strategy workshop, provide participants with a case study of a struggling company. Have them analyze the situation and propose strategies to turn the business around. The best solutions can be discussed as a group.
10. Role-Playing Exercises
Role-playing exercises involve participants taking on specific roles or characters to act out scenarios. This game promotes empathy and communication skills.
Example: In customer service training, participants can take on the roles of customers and service representatives. They act out various customer service scenarios to practice effective communication and problem-solving.
11. Breakout Rooms and Group Discussions
Breakout rooms and group discussions split the audience-focused audiences into smaller groups to discuss specific topics or tasks. This great game promotes active participation and in-depth exploration of ideas.
Example: In an educational webinar, use breakout rooms to divide participants into smaller groups. Each group discusses a different aspect of the topic and then shares their insights when they return to the main session.
12. Live Challenges and Competitions
Live challenges and competitions introduce competitive elements to the best presentation games. Participants can compete individually or in teams to solve problems or complete tasks.
Example: In a team-building event, organize a friendly competition where teams compete in a series of challenges. Challenges could include problem-solving tasks, physical activities, or trivia quizzes to foster teamwork and camaraderie.
13. Interactive Presentations
Interactive presentations incorporate multimedia elements, quizzes, and audience participation throughout the entire presentation screen to keep the audience engaged.
Example: During a product launch presentation, embed interactive elements such as polls, quizzes, and live demos within your slides. This ensures constant engagement and information retention.
14. Icebreakers and Energizers
Icebreakers and energizers are quick, fun activities designed to create a relaxed atmosphere and engage the audience at the beginning of a presentation or during breaks.
Example: At the start of a team meeting, use a fun icebreaker like “Two Truths and a Lie,” where each participant shares two true statements and one false one about themselves. It lightens the mood and promotes bonding.
15. Creative Challenges and Brain Teasers
Creative challenges and brain teasers stimulate creativity and problem-solving. They present puzzles, riddles, or creative tasks to engage the audience stand.
Example: During a creativity workshop, present participants with a riddle or a creative problem to solve as a group. Encourage them to think critically and come up with innovative solutions, fostering creative thinking.

When you use any tool for an interactive show, you need to think about how your audience votes and your presentation’s goals. Make sure the interactive elements enhance the learning or engagement experience rather than becoming a distraction.
Here are some ways a survey-based tool like QuestionPro can assist in creating interactive presentation games:
Question and Quiz Creation
Many interactive presentation game tools allow you to create questions and quizzes that you can integrate into your presentations. These questions can be multiple-choice, true/false, open-ended, or other formats. Participants can then respond to these questions during your presentation.
Interactive presentation fun game tools often include features that engage your audience. This can include things like timers for questions, leaderboards to display scores, and interactive survey elements that make your presentation more engaging and fun.
Feedback and Scoring
These tools typically provide instant feedback to participants. Correct answers might be rewarded with points, while incorrect answers could be followed by explanations. Scores are often tallied in real time, creating a competitive or gamified atmosphere.
Interactive presentation game tools can help you collect data on participant responses. This data can be valuable for assessing learning outcomes, understanding audience vote opinions, or tailoring your content to your audience’s preferences.
You can often customize the appearance and behavior of interactive elements to fit your presentation’s theme or style. This allows for creative and engaging presentations.
Such tools enable audience members to actively participate and feel involved in your presentation. This can lead to higher engagement levels and better retention of information.
Reports and Analytics
Some tools provide analytics and reports after your presentation, which can help you assess the effectiveness of your interactive elements and the overall presentation.
Incorporating interactive presentation games into your talks can elevate your engagement, foster learning, and make your message more memorable. Whether you choose polls, quizzes, simulations, or storytelling challenges, tailoring the games to your audience and objectives is key.
By doing so, you’ll transform your presentations into dynamic and unforgettable experiences that leave a lasting impact on your audience. So, level up your presentations with these interactive games, and watch your audience become active participants in your message.

7 Audience Activities & Games to Play During Presentation
The stage doesn’t only belong to the speaker, but also to the audience. The audience isn’t any longer spectators only, they are also contributors. And this explains the importance of audience activities during presentation. Neuroscientists at Harvard found that talking about ourselves gives similar satisfying signals as money and food give us. Games to play, activities whereby attendees share personal experiences; it all contributes to an interactive experience. Not only that, when we’re able to foster the exchange of experiences and knowledge, then we also develop ourselves as individuals and organizations. So let’s zoom in on a number of audience participation ideas:
Audience participation ideas
Depending on the theme of your presentation, how formal or informal the setting is and how much time you have, there are several ideas out there to apply during your next presentation. Ask yourself during your preparation to what extend you still like to spend time on your PowerPoint, or whether you’d rather prepare for strong engagement activities?
Presentation games are designed to motivate an audience to stay engaged with the speaker by inserting meaningful and fun additions to the presentation.
Cross the Line
“Cross the line” is a format known from “Challenge Day” whereby attendees are asked to stand, based on their answer (yes/no) on a question, either left or right from the room. With it differences are made visible and in the end sensible too. As such it can be one of the engagement games that have a big impact; either in a fun way or in a serious way. It will evoke laughter, recognition, surprise and a tear every now and then.
Ideas for questions are:
Who wanted to become a doctor when you were little?
Who was ever bullied at work?
Who prefers a city trip over a beach holiday?
There are many audience activities to think of when it comes to letting your audience speak up. In these three activities you’ll find back elements that will make your session personal allowing everyone to share their thoughts.
In a fishbowl discussion there are two groups. One forms an outer circle and one group is seated in the middle. Only those located in the middle are allowed to talk. In the inner circle there’s always a free seat available. If someone from the outer circle likes to join, then the free seat is his/hers and somebody else should make space. You’ll therefore find that everyone’s contribution is very conscious and therefore often valuable. Everyone realizes that time spend in the inner circle is valuable: questions and contributions are to the point and well-thought over.
Bring it On
Ask your attendees in advance to bring a small personal item. During your session you let everyone (with a small group) elaborate on why the item is important to them. Alternatively you can do the same by asking your audience to bring a song along. This is a perfect activity to facilitate personal introductions within a group (e.g. upon the start of a new course).
The Talking Stick
The talking stick is an old Native American custom of talking. Upon the start of this activity, everyone should agree that whoever has the talking stick, is allowed to talk without interruption. It’s similar to the Fishbowl Discussion, but with the talking stick it’s not a group, but an individual talking. The talking stick can be any item, as long as it is neutral and not related to anyone in the group. Each time somebody is done talking, the talking stick should be put back in the midst of the group (and should not be handed over to somebody). It maybe sounds simple, but in practice this is a powerful method of creating deep communication and understanding.
Next to games and other activities, these exercises also contribute to a lively presentation!
Before and straight after your presentation you can quiz your audience about your topic through Sendsteps.ai. With Sendsteps.ai, you can create interactive presentations with ease. Whether your topic is solar energy, hotel management, or 20th century art, the AI presentation maker allows you to formulate engaging multiple-choice questions and quizzes for your audience. Your audience can respond directly on their smartphones, and you can track who answered what and even announce a winner. With Sendsteps.ai, you can generate your quiz within minutes and engage your audience in a new and exciting way.
Set the Agenda
In your event program, you can leave part of the program blank. In it you eventually let your audience decide what to discuss. Upon the start of your session you let your audience form small groups. Give them a relevant question and use the output (which they can send in via Sendsteps) for a plenary discussion during your blank program item. From the output you can formulate statements that can result in a lively ‘agree’ or ‘disagree’ debate. Or alternatively invite adhoc a speaker to elaborate on the output. If you’re able to be this flexible, you’ll amaze your crowd with tailoring exclusively to their needs!
Anouk’s passion for presenting started when she was very young: from voluntarily giving presentations in primary school to winning a speaking award with a self-written and presented speech. This adoration comes to life while working for Sendsteps. A passion for giving and writing speeches turned into writing blogposts about these subjects to help others find their passion in presenting.

Top 12 Game Plan PPT Templates to Take Control of Your Business
Maybe you are starting a business or maybe you already have one. You’re trying to make sure your company gets off to an amazing start or maybe that it begins doing even better.
How do you do this? What’s the first step?
Well, what you need to do is sit down and make a game plan .
“You mean a business plan?” I hear you wondering.
Well yes, but not exactly. A game plan is similar to a business plan but much more than that. You see, a business plan is a simple summary of collected data to be presented to, say, a bank for a loan or perhaps to investors in a pitch meeting. A game plan, however, is a strategy you employ to control the what, when, and how of your business operations.
You will need to spend a significant amount of time honing your game plan. The steps you need to take in this iterative process are:
1. Write it down - Start noting down your ideas. Brainstorm and jot down everything that comes to your mind. You might say that you’ll just remember it, but trust us with this, you will forget it later.
2. Organize your ideas - Now that you have what (you believe) you need to kick your business into high gear, sort and categorize your ideas to make them make more sense. Some ideas are essential for the finances of the company while some are needed for improving the efficiency of the operations and so on.
3. Now think some more and start revising - No one gets it right the first time. But with each iteration, eventually, you will get to the perfect game plan that will help your company in the ways that you desire.
And that’s how you make a game plan.
Now, when you do have your ideas on how to make the perfect game plan for your business, how would you showcase them? Might we suggest using...

PowerPoint Game Ideas for Interactive & Engaging Presentations
Last updated on November 13th, 2023
In the ever-evolving world of presentation tools, PowerPoint remains a versatile mainstay. While most of us associate it with business meetings or academic lectures, it’s worth noting that its capabilities stretch far beyond. From engaging classroom activities to lively party games, PowerPoint offers a plethora of interactive opportunities. Dive into this curated list of popular games you can craft using PowerPoint, and discover how to transform this presentation platform into an entertaining gaming console.
Benefits of using Games in PowerPoint Presentations?
Games are not just a source of entertainment; they are a potent tool for fostering engagement, boosting retention, and breaking the monotony of standard presentations.
In business, using PowerPoint games can invigorate team meetings, encourage participation in training sessions, and enhance the assimilation of complex data, making information dissemination more impactful.
For the classroom setting, PowerPoint games pave the way for an interactive learning environment, where students are motivated to participate actively. It aids in the comprehension of challenging concepts, fosters a competitive yet collaborative spirit, and ensures that learning is not just effective but enjoyable.
Leveraging the power of games in PowerPoint presentations is thus a strategic move, transforming the traditional slide-based discourse into an interactive experience for both corporate and educational realms.
In this article, we will present some game ideas that you can implement in PowerPoint, either by using pre-defined Game templates or creating your own interactive games in PowerPoint. Let’s see some ideas below, as well as a quick description on how you can create the game using PowerPoint slides or download pre-existing free PowerPoint templates with games .
1. Family Feud PowerPoint Game
Family Feud is a quiz game where contestants guess the most popular answers to survey questions.
To create this game in PowerPoint, design slides with the questions and use animations to reveal the answers as players guess. Organize the answers in a descending order of popularity, revealing the most popular answers last for dramatic effect. Color coding and use of sound effects can enhance the experience. You can download this free Family Feud PowerPoint template .
2. Jeopardy PowerPoint Game
Jeopardy is a classic quiz game featuring categories and increasing point values.
To create a Jeopardy Game in PowerPoint, begin by crafting a grid of point values on a master slide. Each value should link to a separate question slide. Use hyperlinks for seamless navigation. After answering, guide the user back to the main grid. To track answered questions, you might consider changing the color or appearance of clicked values.
Check out this animated Jeopardy PowerPoint Template .
3. Who Wants to Be a Millionaire PowerPoint Template Game
Who Wants to Be a Millionaire is a high-stakes quiz game with questions of increasing difficulty and lifelines.
To create a Who Wants to Be a Millionaire game in PowerPoint, create a series of slides with questions and multiple-choice answers. Use animations and slide transitions for lifelines, such as “50:50,” revealing the correct answer or polling the audience. Include dramatic sound effects and visual cues for milestones in prize money.
4. Wheel of Fortune Game for PowerPoint
The Wheel of Fortune is a word puzzle game, Wheel of Fortune sees players guessing letters to complete a phrase.
To create this game as a PPT presentation, you can use text boxes in PowerPoint for the puzzle, and animations to reveal letters as they’re guessed. You can also use editable puzzle templates to form the different shapes and layouts. Consider incorporating a spinning wheel animation or image for added effect. Sound effects can be used when letters are guessed correctly or incorrectly.
5. Bingo Game for PowerPoint
Bingo involves players marking off numbers on a card as they’re randomly drawn.
To create a Bingo Game in PowerPpoint, prepare Bingo cards and design slides that randomly display numbers. To ensure randomness, consider using a number generator and manually progressing through slides.
6. Memory Match Game in PowerPoint
Memory Match game is a card-matching game. Memory Match requires players to flip two cards to find pairs.
Using PowerPoint, design slides with hidden images or text that appear upon click. Ensure two of each item for pairing. Create a grid layout in PowerPoint, and use PowerPoint animations to simulate the card “flip” effect when clicked.
7. Trivia Quiz Game in PowerPoint
In Trivia Quiz, players answer a variety of multiple-choice or true/false questions.
Design your PowerPoint slides with a question on top, followed by clickable answers below. Using slide transitions, provide immediate feedback for correct or incorrect answers. Consider incorporating a scoring system or timer for added challenge. If you don’t want to create a quiz from scratch, you may use a free Quiz PowerPoint template design , or a free Trivia PowerPoint template , with pre-defined slides prepared for a Quiz or Trivia game. Alternatively, you can check the quiz maker tools .
8. Hangman PowerPoint Game
Hangman is a word-guessing game. Incorrect guesses lead to drawing parts of a hangman figure.
For this game in PowerPoint, you can create a new PowerPoint presentation and use text boxes for the mystery word. Then, add shapes for the hangman drawing, revealing parts incrementally with each wrong guess. The game concludes when the word is guessed or the hangman is fully drawn. You can also leverage this presentation by applying animations.
9. Pictionary PowerPoint Game
Pictionary is about guessing a word based on a drawing.
In PowerPoint, you can create a Pictionary game that displays a hint or a drawn representation of the word on a slide. When presenting the slideshow, players then guess what the word is based on the visual. This can be made interactive by using drawing tools in real-time, if the platform allows.
10. Price is Right in PowerPoint
In this game, players estimate the price of various items.
To create a Price is Right PPT presentation, you can showcase images of items on your PowerPoint slides and have players guess their price. Once guesses are made, reveal the actual cost. This can be done using PowerPoint animations (first the cost is hidden, and then when revealed you use a Fade effect or any other animation under the Appear section). To add more dynamics, use animations to simulate the spinning wheel or other mini-games from the show.
PowerPoint proves time and again that it’s more than just a tool for slideshows; it’s a canvas for creativity. By thinking outside the box, we can leverage its features to create engaging and interactive games suitable for various settings. Whether you’re an educator aiming to make lessons more captivating or someone looking to add a fun twist to a gathering, these PowerPoint games offer an innovative way to engage and entertain. So, the next time you open up PowerPoint, challenge yourself to see it not just as a presentation tool, but as a gateway to interactive fun.

08.20.20 • #powerpoint #interaction #game.
If you want to boost your audience engagement, lighten the mood, or test how attentive your listeners are, quizzes are a great way to do so! Making a quick question layout is very easy (as you'll see in this blogpost), however it can be tedious to get the design to look good. So if you a) don't have time b) don't feel like doing a template yourself or c) just want to impress the audience with some nice looking quiz designs that you might not have thought of creating yourself, we got you covered.
We created 10 exclusive designs that you can download and use - 100% free - both for commercial use e.g. your next presentation and for private use (how about a trivia night?!) Just look through our list and get the one you like most - we got something for every taste! And by the way, if you need inspiration for quiz question ideas, be sure to check out our article on 50 Quiz Ideas for your Presentation !
- Galaxy Quiz
- Basic Black and White Quiz
- Kahoot Quiz
- Summer Beach Style Quiz
- Keyboard Style Yes-No-Quiz
- Personality Quiz
- Picture Quiz
- Minimalist Quiz
- Vocabulary Quiz
- Who wants to be a Millionaire Quiz
#1 - Galaxy Quiz
Have you ever had a question that only the stars could possibly answer? Now you can ask it with our beautiful galaxy / universe quiz design. This quiz template is the perfect way to go for all the people who adore some extravagant designs - you'll definitely wow your audience! The only downside is that your quiz participants might be so mesmerized by the galactic infinity that they may actually forget to vote for the right answer.
#2 - Basic True and False Quiz (Black & White Style)
This template is pretty plain and basic, yet far from boring! The contrast between black and white and the diagonal text elements make it the perfect elegant choice for anyone who's looking for an interesting and timeless classic design. It even comes in three different options. You can either decide for one or use all three in one quiz-session. We got you covered with one simple white, one black, and one half black- half white design for anybody who can't decide which one they like better. You can use this template for all kinds of questions that have two possible answers (so it is perfect for Yes/No or True/False quizzes!)
#3 - Kahoot PowerPoint Template
Unfortunately, there is no way to conduct a Kahoot quiz via PowerPoint. Until now! We built this wonderful template that looks exactly like the design of our favorite online- quiz- game. But now you can easily play it in your presentation without having to open the browser. And don't worry, participating via smartphone is still absolutely possible and easier than ever by using the SlideLizard Quiz Creator Plugin . Similar to Kahoot it lets you conduct fun audience quizzes, but embedded directly within your PowerPoint presentation!
#4 - Summer Beach Style Quiz
Get some instant holiday vibes without leaving the country, or even the house! Inspired by our tropical island PowerPoint template (which you can get right here !), we designed a wonderful new quiz template that will give you and your audience the feeling of being on vacation while you're actually in a meeting, lecture, or elsewhere. So it is basically everything you could ever want in a quiz. There are even two background styles that you can choose between!
#5 - Keyboard Style Yes/No Quiz
Without a doubt, our keyboard style Yes/No Quiz is one of the most creative ones! It is really fun and an amazing option for anyone who's looking to switch things up a little. The best thing? It comes with an esc- option! So if your quiz participants really, really don't know the answer, they can just - well - escape instead! The slides with the Escape- options are optional however, so if you'd rather want your audience to vote either Yes or No, you can leave out the esc- key. It doesn't matter, weather you're only asking if the audience needs a bathroom break or hard- to- answer trivia questions, with this template you're always in style!
#6 - Personality Quiz
Until now you probably thought more about doing trivia questions in your presentations, but did you know that personality quiz questions can also be an amazing engagement- enhancing element during any presentation? They are especially great as ice breaker questions , but could also be used as mood- lightener at any point. And the best thing: If you get SlideLizard, you can even see the audience results, so you have a statistic overview of e.g. people's favorite ice cream flavors (or whatever else you've always wanted to ask!) P.S: You could also use all the other templates in this post as personality quizzes, but this one is specifically designed as such.
#7 - Picture Quiz
If pictures speak to you more than words do, our picture quiz template might be the one for you! It comes with a fun, modern and playful design, and the pictures can of course be changed to whatever you want them to be (you can also add or remove new images, so there is a selection of 2, 3 or 6 pictures). The picture quiz can be used for testing vocabulary (although #9 covers that already), or to spice up your trivia questions. You could even use it as a fun way to introduce yourself to the audience (e.g. "Which of these baby photos is me?") in order to break the ice. Tip: If you want to know more about ice breaker questions, check out our blog post here .
#8 - Minimalist Quiz
Minimalism is extremely popular right now, and we totally get why! This is the simplest out of all the templates, but isn't it beautiful? With this quiz template, you get slides for Multiple Choice AND True/False questions! We are in love with this template in all its simplicity, but if you want, you could definitely use this as a blank canvas and upgrade it by adding pictures, backgrounds, new fonts or your favourite colors. The sky is the limit!
#9 - Vocabulary Quiz
This one is different from all the other quizzes, since it is neither multiple nor single choice, but instead somewhat of a memory game. We recommend this animated PowerPoint quiz template for testing new vocabulary or difficult terminology, but you could also adapt it and make it a regular open question format by writing questions instead of words on the cards and the right answers on the green cards below (it sounds more difficult than it actually is, and when you download the template, you'll get a detailed guide on how to use it.) In this format, there are some boxes with words in English (which you can exchange with your own words, obviously). By clicking on those boxes in presentation mode, they disappear and leave a green answer card. You can easily play this with your audience/students by letting them shout out the translation of a certain word and then clicking on the matching box to see if the translation is correct.
#10 - Exclusive Who Wants to be a Millionaire Quiz Template
Last but certainly not least, is our "Who wants to be a Millionaire" Template, which we created exclusively for you to feel like a real game show contestant! The whole template is pretty extensive, which is why we put it in a blog article on its own. Be sure to check it out right here in order to learn how to get the best experience possible out of the game - you'll also find the Download link there. The template comes with everything you could wish for - sound effects, a design that is stunningly similar to the real one, and even the possibility to participate via smartphone! The video below gives you a short demonstration of how the game looks.
Let your audience participate with their smartphone
Once you have chosen a quiz, you have to ask yourself: How do I conduct it during my presentation? Of course, you could just let your audience raise their hands for the answers of their choice - but that seems outdated and overly complicated (counting the amount of votes for each answers,...). The way more convenient option is to use an application like SlideLizard, which allows your audience to vote for the answer of their choice via their mobile devices, making the experience a whole lot better - quiz competitions have never been better!
The process is easy:
- Get SlideLizard for free by clicking here .
- Connect your presentation with SlideLizard. If you need more details on how to do that, please watch this short video tutorial .
- The Slides are already programmed to fill in your questions and Answers into the slots. We recommend to start by creating all the quiz questions you want to ask your audience.
- Then, duplicate the question slide as often as you need (= same number of questions you created). It is also a good idea to insert an answer slide after every question.
- You only need to assign the questions to the slides , and you're good to go!
Watch our video to get detailed instructions on how to connect your quiz with SlideLizard:
Adapt the templates
If you'd like to use one of our templates, but feel like making some adjustments, you can easily do that yourself. All of the given templates can be modified, you can make a two- answer quiz in a multiple choice one and vice versa, you can change colors, fonts and shapes to fit your personal taste or company branding. In the following quick guide, you will be shown how certain elements can be transformed. We're using our galaxy template as an example, but all the templates are transformable in the same or very similar ways.
So here's our downloaded template:
Now, let's start by changing the background first. Click anywhere on a slide and select "Format Background"...
Then go to "Picture or texture fill" (or Solid Fill if you want the background to be a plain color).
After clicking "Insert" your file explorer will open. Select the picture of your choice and click "Insert" once again. Your backround is now changed.
The existing boxes should be rectangular, don't you think? Let's do that by deleting the existing boxes and exchanging them with new ones. To do so, click on a box, then right click > "Cut" (or hit the backspace key). Then go to the insert tab and click "Shapes", where you can choose the shape of your choice and draw it on the slide. Place it where you want.
If the object you just drew hides the text, just go to the "Shape Format" Tab and then click "Send backward" until the text shows again.
And while we're at it, maybe just remove two answer options and make it a True/False quiz? If you want to, you can also change the font, and we're good to go! You just modified our quiz and made a whole new one that has your own personal handwriting!

The Business Strategy Game
Competing in a global marketplace, company presentation.
Your instructor may opt to have you and your co-managers do a presentation at the end of the simulation (or possibly even at some point during the simulation). Typically, the audience for such a presentation is your company's board of directors and/or shareholders (with your instructor, invited guests, and other class members assuming the roles of board members and/or shareholders). Your instructor will clarify whether the context of your presentation will be a meeting of the company's board of directors or an annual shareholders' meeting or some other audience.
In the event you are asked to do a presentation on the performance and operation of your company, then we suggest that you create a PowerPoint slide presentation (or a set of transparencies that you can show on an overhead projector if your classroom is not equipped to show slides from a PC).
Unless otherwise instructed, your presentation should include the following topics and slides:
A brief review of the financial performance of your company during the time you and your co-managers have run the company.
This review should consist of charts showing the following:
Trends in the company's annual total revenues Trends in the company's annual earnings per share (EPS) Trends in the company's annual return on equity investment (ROE) Trends in the company's annual credit rating Trends in the company's year-end stock price Trends in the company's annual image rating
If you wish to create additional performance graphs, you can do so, but the above six bar graphs tell an adequate story about your company's historical performance.
- A slide describing your strategic vision for the company.
- A slide that shows what performance targets for EPS, ROE, credit rating, and image rating you and your co-managers would set for each of the next two years (assuming the simulation were to continue). You may also want to indicate a stock price target as well.
- A slide that sets forth your company's competitive strategy for the internet market in some detail and how that strategy has evolved over the years you have managed the company. You may need to have more than one slide here if your company's strategy for the internet market varies markedly from geographic region to geographic region.
- A slide that sets forth your company's competitive strategy for the wholesale market in some detail and how that strategy has evolved over the years. Again, more than one slide may be needed if your company's strategy for the wholesale market varies markedly from one geographic region to another, such that your company is pursuing a meaningfully different competitive strategy in some regions versus others.
- A slide that sets forth your company's competitive strategy for the private-label market in some detail and how that strategy has evolved over the years you have managed the company.
- A slide describing your company's production strategy (as concerns plant capacity and location, use of overtime, and work force compensation/training strategy).
- A slide describing your company's finance strategy (as concerns dividends, use of debt versus equity, stock issues/repurchases, actions to achieve/maintain a strong credit rating, etc.) You should clearly describe your company's dividend policy during the period you have managed the company. Here, you should also set forth what sort of dividend increases, if any, you would likely consider paying out in the next two upcoming years (given the EPS targets you have established).
- A slide showing (1) those companies you consider to be your strongest/closest competitors in the internet market as of the last year or two of the simulation, (2) those companies that are your strongest/closest competitors in the wholesale market, and (3) those companies that are your strongest/closest competitors in the private-label market.
- One or more slides detailing the actions you would take to out-compete these close rivals in the next two years (assuming the simulation continues for several more years). Since the actions may differ between internet, wholesale, and private-label, you may well need more than one slide here.
- A set of slides detailing the "lessons learned" about crafting a winning strategy and about what the managers of a company should or should not do for a company to be financially and competitively successful in a head-to-head battle against shrewdly-managed rival companies.
You should, of course, adjust the content of your presentation to conform to whatever topical outline that your instructor specifies. Thus, depending on what your instructor tells you about what items to address in your presentation, you may need to add slides covering other topics or delete coverage of some of the above suggested topics.
