How to create Fill in the Blanks games

How do I create my Fill in the Blanks?

To create your Fill in the Blank game, simply provide a title to Ray, your AI assistant. Ray will generate a text on the subject you specify, and will replace some keywords with blanks.

You can also provide Ray with a piece of text, and it will identify keywords to turn into blanks.

Before publishing, you can review and make any necessary changes.

Alternatively, if you prefer to create the game manually, you can skip Ray and provide the text, selecting the words to be blanks yourself.

Can I create a Fill in the Blank word game with two or more screens?

Yes, you can create a Fill in the Blanks with multiple screens by clicking on the 'Add block' button. It is recommended to divide your game into multiple screens when you have many words.

How many words can my Fill in the Blanks have?

There are no limits on the number of characters you can input for each block of text, the number of blanks you can select in each block, or the number of blocks you can create.

However, we have some recommendations for an optimal gaming experience. We suggest keeping each block to no more than 250 characters, including between 3 and 6 blanks per block, and limiting the total number of blocks to 10.

Do players fill the blanks typing the word, or dragging and dropping?

By default, the game generates a bank with the words you have turned into blanks, and players can either click or drag and drop each word into the corresponding blank.

However, you can enable typing to fill in the words. To do this, go to the 'Options' tab and select 'Typing' as the Way to fill in.

If you choose 'Typing', you can decide whether to show a list of the words to fill in or to hide them.

Can I create blanks with two or more words?

Yes, you can create blanks with two or more words. To do this, simply select the words you want to include in the blank and click on the horizontal line that joins them. If you want to separate them again, click on the vertical dotted line.

Can I add distractors?

Yes, you can enable the 'Wrong answers' option at the end of any block to add a set of words that do not belong to any of the blanks but function as distractors.

Can I set a limited number of lives?

Yes, when the 'Lives' option is enabled in the 'Options' tab of the editor, you can choose a limited number of lives. Players will lose a life each time they click on the ‘Check’ button and at least one of the blanks has been filled incorrectly.

Can I set a time limit?
