General comments

A fun game that utilises questions for repetition and reinforcement.

This is a novel plugin developed by John Okely, a Moodle Core developer, so it can be relied upon.

Accessibility
Poor
This would not be suitable users of non-visual browsers. Alternatives would need to be provided for users with visual disabilities.

Works reasonably well and is a fun game that students will want to play. Relies on multiple choice questions from the Question Bank. Putting the questions into a category will help isolate the questions you want to include.

General recommendation: Easy choice for schools. Good fun and reasonably well coded. Needs some documentation and links to docs.
