  4. Customize the stimuli by selecting pictures only, words only, or words and pictures.
  5. Print the game board and save it (on your computer) for future use. 

Vocabulary words in the program database are divided into 20 major categories and 80 subcategories.  Each subcategory contains at least 25 nouns, 10 verbs, and 10 describing words.  About 70% of the words in the database are from the curriculum.  You can also add your own words to the database.
