How to Choose a Game Type
Sugarcane provides 18 fun game types to choose from! When making a game you will be prompted to choose a type, from six different categories: Matching, Associating, Typing, Ordering, Categorizing, and Other.
To decide which type to make, think about how you would like to learn about your selected topic. For example, if you are interested in putting information in order, then choose one of the Ordering games. On the other hand, if you want to learn related pieces of information that go together, then choose one of the Matching games.
Here is more information about the six categories and each game type within them.
