The Bounce Around Board Game maker is a worksheet wizard that allows you to create phonics board games and conversational board games on any theme with pictures. You can select a board with all images, customize a board with text of your choice and mix with images, or just create a board that is all text. It's super simple, easy to use, but very powerful.
How to play: There is a game explanation here at MES-English.com. This is a multiplayer game that students can use to practice a variety of different vocabulary in target structures, as simple vocabulary practice or the game can be customized with text and use for almost any purpose.Game with text only: Type in questions, target language structures or any language you wish the students to practice. (You can also use this to create custom phonics worksheets and phonics board games.)
This can also be used by math teachers to create math printables. Enter math problems into the text only version and you can create a math board game!

These can handle some foreign languages as well. So, French teachers, LOTE teachers, German teachers, Spanish teachers and more can use the board game maker in their classes as well.
Once your game board has been generated, go into the 'file' menu at the top left of the browser and choose print.
These should print fine if you are printing on A4 paper or Letter. However, if the game is printing on two pages or getting cut off, go to 'file' and select 'page properties.' You'll see an option for margins. Reduce the top, bottom and side margins and then close that window. Now you are ready to print.
