    This CSS code, while not perfect, makes the crossword layout prettier.
    #page-mod-game-view {
    .crosswordarea table#crossword tbody {
    width: 800px !important;
    td {
    width: 28px;
    height: 9px;

    /* Actually an even better solution is to use rem units */

    #page-mod-game-view {
    .crosswordarea table#crossword tbody {
    td {
    width: 2rem;
    height: 2rem;

    Thanks Derek Chaplin. Version 2018-11-20-02 includes a similar change in CSS, so cells in crossword are now square.

    Very reliably updated, and I can't speak for the other games, but 'Book with question' is unusable from what I can tell. I recommend and instead, for formative assessments within books (and others). Fantastic commitment to this plugin, though! Just doesn't suit what I was looking for.

    In the last version game "Book with questions" is now hidden by default. Every who wants to use it can unhide it from settings. I fixed some problems in this game also.

    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.
