    No, you can't insert them in Books.

    Great plugin, Vasilis! We are mostly using the Crossword Puzzle right now. I'm wondering if you could add a setting to make the Check Crossword button optional. Our Spanish department is using it as a way of testing. I have added some CSS to hide the button, but that affects every Crossword, of course. Thanks again for your hard work.

    We have encountered a bug in the millionaire's game. The bug appears after finishing the game and then trying to answer again (16th question). After that we get a database error (error/moodle/dmlreadexception). Is this issue known?

    Works neat on Moodle 2.9.1
    On Moodle 2.7.2 however when adding activity the site stops responding, debugging has shown the following message:
    "Fatal error: Call to undefined method mod_game_mod_form::standard_intro_elements() in /home/moodle/site/mod/game/mod_form.php on line 86"

    Hi, I am using Moodle 3.8.3 and mod_game version 2020081901 and I have a cryptex game created in my course and connected to a 42 word glossary. But the game only shows me 29 words and shows different amounts of words to each user.

    Hi, your plugins are so great. I have a question. I am going to use crossword plugin in my project. However, I realized that after completion of the game, the student can not see the answers. Is there a way to show answers to the student after the game finishes?

    Hi, I wanna make that, too. Users/students should be able to see the answers at end of the game.

    Hello, even with "Separate groups" forced teachers can see other groups and student from other groups when showing attemps. Can this be fixed? Can be important for privacy issues.

    When I want to use the crossword taking the questions from a glossary it gives me the following error:
    error/game_cross_continue: No words2.
    I am using the version 2020-08-19 (2020081901).

    Hi Vasilis.
    I want to thank you for your contribution to this community. I have been using the plugin but there is something I haven't been able to make work (probably because I am omitting some steps/information). On Snakes and Ladders, I have tried to use my own background image but it seems that I can't make it happen because it doesn't show the grid. I would really appreciate your suggestions to fix that and I thank you in advance. Have a nice one!

    Hi Vasilis.
    Recently we have upgrade our moodle to 3.9 version and it includes mod_game that we haven't before. Now we are receiving an alert with this problem:
    An exception occurred while calling mod_game\privacy\provider::delete_data_for_user

    Any ideas on how to fix it? Thanks!
