    Hi, thank you so much for the update. The Cryptex word box has disappeared though, whether activities have been upgraded or newly created - only the questions are visible. I've tried on both Moodle 3.2 and 3.3 with version 2017062002.

    Аида Маркосян: Goto settings of game, select the correct glossary and press save. If the problem continues please goto at https://moodle.org/mod/forum/view.php?id=7220, open a discussion and send a printscreen of settings to understand the problem.
