And here, again, is the resulting game: Learn Famous Works of Art
What’s Connected games work well when you include several columns from the data set. Using this data set about Types of Cheese, we can make a game where you select the Picture, Country of origin, Milk source, Texture, Pasteurized status, and Aging Time for each cheese Name.
