How to make quiz game in PowerPoint?

Step 3: Next we numbering the order of the crossword. Here you use the Drawing tool. At Home, select Drawing, select Shape Pentagon to draw.
Adjust the format as you want, then to duplicate the shape, press Ctrl + D. Then you can place it at the right side of the crossword, go to Format, in Rotate choose Flip Horizontal. Finally, number the shape as shown below.
Step 7: Now let’s make more crosswords. Ctrl + A to select all and Ctrl + D, then make some alignments.
Step 8: Create the answers and you have finished designing. For the answer, you should not write directly to the previously created Table frame because it will be difficult to animate later.
Instead you will create a new table of the same size as the previously created table by using CTRL + D. Fill the answer in the newly created table.
Step 9: Now you move the new table over the old table. Basically, you have finished designing the layout of the game slide.

Right-click on label number 1 and select Hyperlink…
Step 3: On the Insert Hyperlink window, select Place in This Document, then select the slide where you designed the question.
If you do not know which slide, look to the right and you will see the preview of the slide you selected. Click OK.
You do the same with the rest.
After you have reached the question slide, you do not know how to return to the answer slide? Let’s create the answer Shape as well. It is the key to solving this problem.
