In Order zip file: Everything you need to build your own In Order game.To customize the game, simply replace the images in the folder with your own sequence (say, the events in a novel). Make sure that the order of your sequence (first to last) matches the order of the images; for example, make your first image 1.jpg, your second image 2.jpg, and so on.

  1. Hi Jim, I’m an education student up at Nipissing University interested in trying out your In Order template for some history lessons, but it appears the link to the zip file is broken. I read the article in Professionally Speaking and really like your work – hope to integrate gaming into my own classroom down the road.
