Welcome to the first Scratch Mix and Match Cards Challenge! For each challenge, you will be given three cards. Your mission is to use the code from at least two out of the three featured cards to make your own game or story.  I’ll demonstrate some ways that you could use each piece of code, but you can use the codes in any way that best fits your game or story. The cards are divided up into five categories:

  • Game Setup
  • Make it Move
  • Cool Effects
  • Clones
  • Say Something

You can download three cards for each challenge!
