Calvin, Marty Luther and Sunday Software present...
Cal and Marty's
Cal & Marty is a fun interactive
scripture memory game you can use again and again and again,
...and edit-in your own verses and quiz content.
Students and/or Teachers edit in their own verses,
then study the verse before
unscrambling the verses against the clock.
teachers can also add comments
and quizzes to each verse!
Cal & Marty CD includes a
scoreboard to track
individual students, encouraging them to improve their score, and
giving you a tool to see which verses they've mastered.
And... Cal & Marty
Scripture Memory CD also has a
sense of humor!
(John Calvin) and Marty (Martin Luther) appear on screen encouraging
you and offering comments. Most other scripture memory games are
DRY, DULL, and don't come with verse editors.
Bonus feature: The CD also features Cal and Marty
animatedly talking briefly about themselves and
key ideas and concepts of
the Protestant Reformation.

Before getting started, you or
your students edit in the verse ahead of time using the Verse Editor.
Then students select a verse they want
to study. They have 30 seconds to study it, then the verse is scrambled.
They drag the scrambled verse words into the
correct order to win the verse and get a score. When done, Cal or Marty have a few words
of encouragement, then a
"verse comment window" appears (with content you have
edited-in), then a 3 question quiz pops up (that you created when you
edited in the verses).
your students EDIT IN THE VERSE, +
CREATE the COMMENTS to
accompany each verse, + and
CREATE a 3 question QUIZ about the verse. The game comes with
several verses to get you started but it's the EDITOR that's the thing.
You put in your own verses, content and can use any translation of
scripture YOU want to. Letting the students edit-in the verses help
begin the memorization process and creates ownership.
Cal & Marty's
clock ticks "up"
The whole time students are
unscrambling a verse a clock on the screen ticks UPWARD. Marty thinks that amazing
because students can have as much
time as they need to get the verse right. (Other unrepentant memory verse
games tick down and the student runs out of time).
Of course, Cal and Marty are
watching and will give students a lower score for a higher time.
Cal believes in "grace" however, and thus, your students can always try again (which is the plan) to
get a better score. If they are stuck in a verse, students can
also click the ASK CAL or ASK MARTY buttons and they will put a key word
in the correct spot. However, this will affect their score.
will track their progress for each verse and Cal & Marty
will appear on screen to help them.
Marty think they have a sense of humor.
We'd like to apologize ahead of time to our German and
French brothers and sisters, and all Luther-anians and Calvinistas.
Our heroes in this CD have a little too much fun. We also apologize in advance for their accents.
Cal & Marty appear courtesy
of some Fun
--TALKING CALVIN AND LUTHER HEADS
--it's worth the price of the CD just to see that !
But their talking heads also
make this program unique and fun to use. Cal and Marty appear on screen
to encourage your students. Their eyes follow your student's mouse
pointer across the screen. They blink, they mutter, they scowl, they comment, ...and
Marty has even been known to hum a few bars. Furthermore, your
kids can play with Cal and Marty's heads using their mouse. (Check
out teaching tips for this secret "how to" info.) The technology
is called "biovirtual" and it's a lot of fun (plus it keeps the kids
focused on content -wanting to use the program).
did Cal and Marty get like this?
We animated their famous portraits with
some cool British facial animation software. This is the first commercial
game to use this technology. --And the effect is so fun your
kids will want to do many more memory verses ~and improve their
scores on those they've already played, just to see Cal and Marty looking
around, wincing, whistling, blinking, and otherwise wise-cracking.
Cal & Marty's
CONTAINS ACCORDION MUSIC
A great memory game for use anytime by
kids, youth, even adults.
A great game for Sunday School use
Fun enough for fellowship time and
really useful for confirmation
This CD is also used in a lot of
Vacation Bible Schools because
they tend to emphasize daily memory verses.
Cal and Marty appear as talking
portraits throughout the game encouraging students and talking about
themselves. It's called "biovirtual". It's also kinda creepy because
they follow your mouse when not talking. Fun!
Cal reminds you
once more of the key features:
Verse Editor !!! --type in your own verses, or
better yet, let
the kids do it. It is really
easy. Cal & Marty comes with some famous verses already edited
in, but you can change these if you like. You can type in single
verses, or sets of verses to be part of a group. Students select
individual verses from the group to work on. Cal & Marty's
verse editor is really easy to use and versatile.
We did NOT put a bunch of
ready-made verses on the CD. Only some. Why? Because
we knew a lot of people would want their verses in a different translation
than the ones we could have included. Plus...It's About the Editor! Let the kids use it...it helps
them memorize, and the LIKE using it.
You can add comments to each
--your own study notes/reflections pop-up after
the verse is unscrambled. This
is a "FIRST" for scripture memory game software.
Cal thunk it up. This is a great idea for your students to do... it makes
them think "what do I want to say about this verse?"
!!! --add up to 3
multiple-choice quiz questions per verse which pop up
after the unscrambling. This
is yet another "FIRST" for scripture memory game software.
Marty claims credit for this idea.
--learn a little bit about
who John Calvin
and Martin Luther were from none other than Cal & Marty themselves.
When asked, our heroes will also talk about What is the Reformation?
and What is a Protestant?
Cal & Marty talk about important stuff, but they do it
in a brief and eye-catching way. The 3-D animation of their facial
features is really quite amazing.
STATS -see who has what scores for
each verse. Cal and Marty keep track of everybody and encourage
them to get even faster at unscrambling verses. Cal likes to
sit in the Stats screen and heckle your students.
