Before you dive into creating your game board, you’ll want to write down the categories, point values and questions for your game. This will make the process of creating your game go more smoothly.
Once you have your game planned out, you can hop into PowerPoint 2013. Start by creating a blank presentation. On the Design tab pick a theme you like for your game board. On the first, slide delete the Title and subtitle text boxes.
On the Insert menu, click Table and insert a table that will have enough cells to hold your point values and a row for your header. In my example game I’m going to have six categories and five questions per category. Thus I’d create a six by six table.
Click on your table and select the Design tab under Table Tools. Select a theme for your table if desired. Next, click the Layout tab under Table Tools and select the Align button. Select Align Center and then Align Middle to center the table. You should have something like Figure 1.
Now, enter your categories and point values in the table. When you’re done you should have something like Figure 2.
