Medium: Powerpoint. Go to 'Custom Animation', 'Add Effect', 'Entrance', 'Color Typewriter'. The speed can then be altered as appropriate.
How to play the game: Animate your words so that the computer types the words at varying speeds. Students have to write the words clearly on the whiteboard before the computer finishes typing. A point can be given for the team which holds up three correctly spelt words the quickest.
