Software Description:
Cal and Marty is a fun memory verse game that lets you or your students input whatever verses you want to work on in whatever translation you prefer, and turns them into a fun "verse scramble game." You also have the option to add a teaching comment in the game and a three-question quiz with each verse. The game includes a score tracker and other unique features.

As you can see in the above logo, "Cal and Marty" are none other than John Calvin and Marty Luther the famous reformers. They humorously appear "biovirtually" onscreen throughout the games to encourage students. They also host a short optional learning activity about themselves and the Protestant Reformation.

Ideally used with individuals and small groups at one or multiple computer stations, the game can also be presented on a large screen to a group by a teacher where the scrambles are solved by individuals taking turns or the whole group.

Age Range: Optimally grades 2 and up. However, many of today's 1st graders have the ability to read simple verses or identify words well enough to unscramble your simple verses. As with all younger users, assistance is key. The built-in Verse Editor does require the ability to read and follow simple instructions and early readers will appreciate help.

System: Windows XP, 7, 8, and 10 -only.

Permissions: Sunday Software is making this program available to the Supporting Members of Rotation.org free of charge. The program may be installed on as many computers at your church as needed or shared with your church's members for their home use. The file may not be publicly posted or otherwise distributed beyond your congregation's use.

Extended Description:

Be sure to view the game guide's technical notes, especially the ones about increasing the size of Cal and Marty's window to fill more of your monitor, and quickly correcting a "talking head" animation problem should it occur.
