PGCPS Match Game

Post by Gurki » Fri May 08, 2020 10:30 am

I postet the following post about a week ago in the "Beginner" section and had no answers. Maybe it should be here, as it's about teaching LiveCode:

For many years Cyril Pruszko used LiveCode in the school until his retirement. He has documented a large part of his lessons on the Internet; a great treasure: https://sites.google.com/a/pgcps.org/livecode/
I have now come across an exercise there, where I am stuck (and it's just one of the few that are only partially documented).

The Match Game*. The idea is that the children check and complete the given code.

Either it is really extremely difficult (which I don't believe) or I am struck by blindness or after x attempts I just go round in circles. Has anyone here ever programmed such a game and could help me? (There is a similar game here in the forum with code to download, but it has a completely different approach behind it). Maybe I just didn't try enough, but computer science is one of twelve school subjects I have to teach, and now with home schooling (a.k.a video conferencing), preparation takes twice as long and I still have to coach the overstrained parents.

I'm grateful for any advice. Or is there a finished version for code analysis somewhere?

Stay in good health and best regards,
G.

Hi Gurki,

is this a "Memory" game? Looks like...
I made a memory game a long time ago (16 years to be precise) with Metacard as an exercise in logics.
Get it here if you like: https://major-k.de/xtalk.html
Scroll down to "simple_memory1".

You may change the suffix .mc to .livecode so you can doubleclick it to open in LC.
Lots of comments in english and german, check it out, great pedagogical potential! :-)


Best

Klaus
