Choose Between Four Question Prompts

Each game includes four different prompts for teachers to use when asking questions.

Prompt 1: No prompt: Simply ask a question to your students without the use of a prompt.  You don't need to prepare anything ahead of time when playing with this prompt.

Why I Developed These Games

When I started teaching more than a dozen years ago, I found most interactive white board games and software to be lacking, limited, or too cost prohibitive for a new teacher like me to afford.

It was then that I set out to develop high quality interactive ESL games that teachers under any budget could afford.

I had a few goals that I set out to reach when developing these games.  Thus, all games that I develop:
  • are easy to use, fun, and interesting
  • are usable with any topic and content
  • give complete control to the teachers
  • infinitely reusable
  • are more powerful than PPT or Notebook made games and software
  • require no installation to use
  • require no internet connection to use
  • are inspired by the sort of things that children love

Popular Games with Teachers and Students

I develop, design, and code Happy Everyday English games completely from the ground up!  These games can be used with any questions, topics, pictures, and keywords.  The results are based on student performance and skill with quite a bit of randomness involved.  This ensures that each play is unique and different.  Results are never scripted so the games are always fresh and exciting.  Most games cost about as much as a cup of coffee and you can try them out for free by downloading the demo.  Try before you buy by downloading this demo pack.  Enjoy!


Castle Wreckers is an exciting game

that helps your students practice vocabulary and any target language you want them to practice.  Students answer questions or identify pictures and make sentences and then they fire a cannon to destroy a castle!  This game is playable as a full class or using two teams.

In Pearl Finder students must find the magic pearls to power their submarine so that they can return to the surface of the ocean. If you're familiar with the classic clam shell/cup game, you know how this works. Keep your eye on the prize! Don't lose site of the pearl. Can be played as an entire class or with teams.




Snakes and Ladders is a classic board game known all over the world.  Two to four teams compete to reach the end of the board.  They must avoid snakes that want to eat them all the while trying to climb ladders that lead to higher spaces on the game board.  The first team that reaches the end wins!



Spin That Wheel is an interactive classroom game based on several famous game shows. Teams compete to earn the most money in three rounds by answering questions and spinning the wheel. The third round consists of each team answering a final question to the best of their ability in order to earn a great score multiplier.

Monster Attack is a game built around destruction!  A monster is attacking a beautiful city and depending on the game mode, students help the monster or need to blast it away and defeat it.  In this game, teams can compete to answer questions or correctly identify categories to play.  They may also work together to answer as many questions as fast as possible before the monster destroys the city.  It's crazy fun!



Roly Poly Bowly is a fast paced, frenetic game that tasks your students with helping a roly poly gather fruit.  They do so by helping it bounce.  They tap the screen to help it bounce higher.  If they make it bounce too disappears!  Be careful.  In this game, students can compete or work together while playing. 



Fighter's King is an exciting and intense interactive game suitable for subject or topic! Teams choose one of seven fun characters to represent them in the game.
