    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 81 of /mod/game/snakes/play.php: call to print_error()
    • line 504 of /mod/game/snakes/play.php: call to game_snakes_play()
    • line 455 of /mod/game/snakes/play.php: call to game_snakes_position()
    • line 190 of /mod/game/attempt.php: call to game_snakes_check_glossary()
    • line 40 of /mod/game/attempt.php: call to game_do_attempt()
    Thanks for any clue to avoid this.

    Dear Vasilis,

    I have moodle 3.7+ installed and created a glossary to use in a crossword game. The crossword appears alright and the answers are entered/checked correctly when the user enters them (i.e. wrong number of letters).

    But, after the user has completed the crossword, pressing either the check crossword option or the complete crossword option leads to simply reload the crossword with a blank one and the previous attempt is recorded as a total failure (0%), even if the user has completed all the answers correctly.

    Is it something I am doing wrong? Maybe with the glossary?

    Thank you very much...

    ..hello again...the same also happens to a cryptex. When clicking on "Answer" a textbox appears where the user can enter his/her answers, but upon clicking "OK", again, the cryptex is reloaded. If the user clicks "End of game" it simply reloads the cryptex by not recording any "finished attempt".

    Thank you for your time!

    OK...coming back with this issue, after all it is not an error, but it is happening only for the "admin" user. If the "admin" user tries any game then this behavior occurs, which is not a big deal actuslly, since your plugins are excellent and with very qualitative code.
    If another user is delegated as an administrator to the site, this behavior does NOT happen.

    Finally, one error that is reported is when one tries to preview, or see the solution of a completed cryptex, via the administration menu of the "Show attempts" choice. It reports with the error:
    "Too few arguments to function game_cryptex_play(), 9 passed in [dirroot]/mod/game/preview.php on line 81 and exactly 12 expected".
    I added these extra three parameters as I saw fit and everything worked fine!

    Thank you again, and keep up the good work!
