    We use them on an education site for schools and schools love it so thank you. However, we have had a number of complaints about the game:- cryptex
    When the grid is created it has on several occasions created very sexual words and phrases which student have found and reported to their tutor. Screenshots have been sent to us. This has sparked a number of concerns to us, so much so that we have now had to remove this particular game. Is it possible for you to create a box a that we can enter a list of common words that your system will ensure does not appear in the grid or maybe you have another solution? Cheers.

    Why are questions in hangman and crossword split in 2 lines. Word It need to be in the same line of the rest of the question. Glossary is ok.

    This plugin is really great. Thanks.
    We encounter a problem with "Snakes and Ladders" : an error is thrown when finishing the game. We tried several cases but the message remains the same (even when on last position, dice showing 1 and a correct answer is given or being on 32 and responding correctly with a dice of six). The error is thrown when a good answer is given and we are out of the board (game "won"). We use Moodle 3.6.2+ (Build 20190208) and plugin game version 2019033001.
    The error is :
    Debug info:
    Error code: Course Module ID was incorrect id=
    $a contents:
    Stack trace:
    • line 494 of /lib/setuplib.php: moodle_exception thrown

    • line 40 of /mod/game/attempt.php: call to game_do_attempt()
    Thanks for any clue to avoid this.
