Description

Are you a teacher looking to promote good fun academic competition in your classroom? Now you can create your own Jeopardy style games and share them from 1-to-many iPads with Buzz Monster, an outrageously fun quiz game for 2-3 players.

From the creators of ‘Futaba Classroom Games’, Buzz Monster uses the INKids Learning Cloud Service to share multimedia games seamlessly with other iPads using a simple class code. Teachers already using Futaba can use their existing class codes with Buzz Monster!

How does Buzz Monster work?

Buzz Monster is a multiplayer game that allows up to 3 students to learn with a single iPad. When a game begins players take it turn picking questions from the various categories available. After the question is shown, the first player to “Buzz in” has the opportunity to answer the question. Points are awarded for correct answers, and if a player gets 4-in-a-row on the gameboard they can also earn bonus points.

Play continues until all tiles on the board have been attempted and at the end of the game the player with the most points is declared as the winner.
