Here is my situation: I’ve created a simple card game for some people with special needs that is very simple. I created activities, printed them (activity on one side, Game Level on the other) on good business card stock, laminated those and voila. Each level is more challenging than the previous, 4 levels, one set for girls and one for boys. So a card set that says, say, Level 1 Boys, one that is Level 1 Girls, etc for 4 different levels. We shuffle the cards and they draw one and try to do whatever challenge the card tells them to do. If they need a partner to, e.g., “build a 2 level tower from the block set” we use Selector on the iPhone or iPad which works very well. When a card is drawn, it goes into a discard pile.
Simple, works well, so of course I need to make it more complicated! I’d like to convert this to a simple something on a laptop (I’d love to do it on an iPad but I know that would be very challenging.) One reason is to be able to easily modify the cards as we see what works well, what doesn’t, new cards, etc. without having to print them out and laminate them.
So I just need a program that lets me enter the card sets as above, then lets each person draw a random card in that card set and marks it “read” so it isn’t drawn again that game.
That sounds really simple? But my searching has come up pretty dry. Any ideas? I’ve tried Flash Card programs but none seem to work the way I need.
