Software bits and bobs

I’ve been taking a few custom orders for software and have added some components that might be of interest.  All of these are available in my Etsy store for purchase.

First of all, I’ve made my faceoff podium from Family Feud available. You can use this as a simple 2-player keyboard buzzer for your own game or presentation. Find it here.

Second, I’ve created a scoreboard that emulates the look and feel of the contestants’ podium from “The Chase.” You can find it here.

I’ve also got a generic 4-player scoreboard that you can use for most any trivia game, with a selection of fonts to suit your need. That’s available here.

Finally, I’ve made a ladder similar to the one that was used on “Greed.” It has fully customizable text you can use for your own trivia tournament games. Find it here.

I’m in the process of uploading more things, so make sure to check out the shop for new listings!

Software megapost

A few of you have been asking about specific titles, so I thought I’d take some time to make a post about what software is available, what I’m working on to be available, and what probably isn’t going to be made available.

First: What’s already available for purchase now in my Etsy store:

All-Star Blitz
Chain Reaction
Hollywood Squares
Pointless Game Board

Second: What’s currently available but hasn’t yet been put in the Etsy store:

Card Sharks (main game and Money Cards scoreboard only)
Farkle (need to write a rules bible for this before it goes on Etsy)
Panel Quiz Attack 25 (scoreboard and buzzers only, no puzzles)
Play Your Cards Right (main game and Points for Prizes scoreboard only)
Sale of the Century (need to figure out customization options for the Fame Game)
Strikeout (need to write a rules bible)

Third: Software I need to tweak before it’s ready:

Bullseye (need to make the “visual” screen read outside images)
Family Feud (need to make the “families” opening screen editable and add faceoff)
Joker’s Wild (need to make the “visual” screen read outside images)
Match Game (need to remake the Super Match round)
Pyramid (need to alter a graphic)
Super Password (need to convert from yen to dollars)
Three on a Match (need to make it read outside text files)
Tic Tac Dough (need to make the “visual” screen read outside images)
Wheel of Fortune puzzle board (need to make it read outside text files)

Finally: Software that probably won’t be made available and reasons why:

Jeopardy! (There are a million Powerpoints out there much easier to run.)
Know Your Role (Everything’s hard-coded and not worth the time to make ready.)
Line ‘Em Up (Everything is hard-coded into the .fla program.)
Pointless main game (Hard-coded and made from scratch for every show.)
Pokémon Game Show (I’m crazy but I’m not insane.)
Ponyville Derby (Hard-coded and not worth the time to make ready.)
Press Your Luck (Everything of note is hard-coded into the .fla program.)
Stop the Music! (Requires too many external files to be easy to use)
The Price is Right (I made this from scratch for every show.)
Wheel of Fortune wheel/scoreboard (Too much is hard-coded in the .fla.)

Some of the software in the final category might be available for a one-time use. I’ve talked to a few of you already about this.

If you have any questions you can feel free to contact me through social media or directly at jgwicker at gmail dot com.

Software update

I’ve added Blockbusters and Sale of the Century to the software available for licensing. The Sale of the Century software utilizes the “Winner’s Board” bonus game we played at conventions, which you can see at the end of this video:

If you’re interested in licensing either of these games, please contact me.
