Idiom Matching

Postby Dr. Goodword » Tue Sep 24, 2013 11:04 pm

We just uploaded new game-test, called "Idiom Match". It consists of matching idioms to their description in rather arcane English, e.g. neophyte serendipity = beginner's luck. Click here to see how many you can get right in 60 seconds.

It's fun, but I would most definitely appreciate a larger font.

I cannot find the beginning button. You can enlarge the type by spreading your fingers across the page.

If you happen to have a touch-screen. I can't make the quiz any bigger.

I have no control over the size of the font in the editor I'm using. I will try to get the quiz in another format.

In the meantime, try my new "Identify the Idiom or Adage" game at http://www.alphadictionary.com/fun/idioms_adages.html
