It comes in handy for teachers and others who want to quickly and easily share these files with others. The software is perfect for simple recreations of game shows, which are great for school, parties, making your own games, or team-building exercises.

The Best Game Show Templates for PowerPoint

There are loads of templates available that will allow you to customize your game show presentation, adding things like contestant names, trivia questions and answers. Game show templates can be quick and simple, or quite complicated in nature. Here are some of the best PowerPoint templates we've found for creating your own versions of well-known game shows.

  • PowerPoint Games: All of the templates on this site are free to download and use, though not all of them are based on game shows. The graphics are a little clunky, but for classroom or party use, they would work just fine. You'll find several game show offerings at PowerPoint Games, including "Who Wants to Be a Millionaire," "Jeopardy," "Hollywood Squares," and "Family Feud."
  • EdGames: These game templates are intended for classroom use, though you could certainly use them for other things as well. They're created by the same person who made the templates at PowerPoint Games above, though these contain better graphics and a slightly more professional look. Not all of these games are free, however. Game shows here include a "Pyramid"-style game called What is Louie Thinking. Big Board Facts which is a take on "Jeopardy," and The Big Wheel which is a "Wheel of Fortune game.
  • JC Schools: In addition to the standard game show-based templates, there are a few other highlights here. First, they offer a PowerPoint version of "Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader?" Second, their version of "Who Wants to Be a Millionaire" includes sound. All of these games are free and are intended for schools.
  • PowerPoint Lessons : This site has a great collection of "Jeopardy," "Who Wants to Be a Millionaire," and "Hollywood Squares" templates, with the focus largely on "Jeopardy." There are several different versions of America's favorite quiz show, including general ones and those that are focused on various subjects.
  • Barbara Barr : In addition to even more "Jeopardy" templates, this site has a neat one for "The Weakest Link." All files here are free and can be downloaded in a .zip file to make things a little quicker.
  • Culpepper Online: These templates for PowerPoint are really fun. Game shows include "Jeopardy, " "Who Wants to Be a Millionaire," "Hollywood Squares" (called Celebrity Squares), "Family Feud " (called Class Feud), "Chain Reaction," and "The Weakest Link." The accompanying text and handouts offer a great deal of information and help with using these templates.
  • San Clemente High School: While there are only three available game show templates here, they're definitely worth downloading. All three games have accompanying sound files, which make the games a lot more fun to play. Also, in addition to "Who Wants to Be a Millionaire" and the always-popular "Jeopardy" template, this site offers a template for "Cash Cab!"
  • Jump Start Games : If free templates aren't doing it for you, consider making a small investment in this package. For about $25 you get 40 game show templates including most of those listed above along with "Deal or No Deal" and "1 vs.100."

PowerPoint games based on game shows can help make teaching almost any subject a little more fun, especially if you also hand out small prizes for the winners. They're also a fun addition to parties, or you can set them up for just about any kind of presentation that you want to make a little more interactive. If you can't find exactly what you're looking for with a template, consider making your own PowerPoint quiz and playing it out like a game show.
