Game Features

  • Much of the game concept comes from the actual gameplay of the Among Us game

  • Features graphics, animations, and sound effects similar to the game as well

  • Includes interactive voting and in-game scoring slides

  • Only works with PowerPoint 2013 or later - earlier versions have issues with slides resetting

How to Play

  • Split students up into 6 teams (blue, white, green, orange, yellow, and pink).

  • Each team starts the game with 5 lives.

  • Each round, a team will choose a number on the map.

  • That number will go to one of two slides: either a voting slide or a task slide.

  • On the voting slide, there are three crewmates with boxes next to them.

  • Teams discuss which crewmate they think is the impostor.

  • When time is up, each team will cast their vote by saying the word or sentence in the box of their choice.

  • After all teams have cast their votes, the teacher will reveal which of the three crewmates was the impostor.

  • If on the voting slide, the impostor had the most votes, all teams stay alive (no one loses any lives).

  • However, if the impostor didn't have the most votes or there was a tie, the teams who didn't vote for the impostor lose a life and the team(s) who did vote for the impostor gain a life.

  • The teacher keeps track of each team's lives on the in-game scoring slide.

  • On the task slide, teams will be confronted with a certain task, which ultimately is up to you when you edit game. Example tasks include unscramble a word or sentence, translate, answer the question, fill-in-the-blank, use the picture to say a word/sentence, etc.

  • One student from each team will stand up and once the teacher reveals the task, the first student to raise their hand and complete the task correctly gains a life for their team.

  • If a team loses all their lives, they become a ghost. Meaning, their team can still vote, but the only way they can get back in the game is to gain a life through a task (can't through voting).

  • The team with the most lives at the end of the game is the winner!

  • Further instructions on how to play/how to use the PowerPoint can be found in the notes section of each slide. However, VERY IMPORTANT, make sure you use the in-game hyperlinks to switch between slides - don't click or press the arrow keys or space bar - or you will reset the scoring, map, and voting slides. 

Variations

  • To play as a speaking game, use images in the boxes on the voting slides. To play as a reading game, use words or sentences in the boxes.

  • To play as a writing game, give each team a whiteboard and dry erase marker and have them cast their vote by writing the word/sentence of their choice. Then when time is up, one by one each team will reveal their vote.
