The games have been sorted into different categories in which they are classically played. However as an example, one or two relay race games can also be modified and played at a birthday party. The categories serve as a general direction pointer.
When you look at a game in detail, the category the game belongs to is displayed in the navigation bar and is marked blue.
In the category view, all of the games are presented by title and include a short description. If you move the mouse over the title, the materials required are displayed. Click on the game title for a detailed description.
At the same tine, symbols will be shown which give you a possible choice and an assessment of games with respect to some chosen game criteria.
When you look at a game in detail, the relevant category is marked in blue and shown in the navigation bar.
In each detailed view, a short description and a detailed description, possible variations and the judging of the game are given.
The pages are printable using the optimal print function of the browser. Navigation and pictures will not be printed out.
You will receive a game list when you print out the individual category overviews. The category overviews can be printed out simply by using the normal print function of your browser. In order to save ink, the navigation, pictures and symbol icons will not be printed out. The short description included should be enough to be able to manage the game.
Additionally, you can also set up a games file by printing out the detailed descriptions. The print format has been chosen so that (almost) all games fit onto a card measuring 14 x 10cm. Space has been left on the left margin in case you would like to use a hole punch and file the cards in a folder. Alternatively you can cut out each description using the lines shown and stick them onto a file card. In doing this, you will have a little game file with over 1000 short, quick games.
I have tried to fulfil the considerable criteria for an accessible web site, which are described in the access guidelines for web contents 1.0 (Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 1.0) of the World Wide Web Consortium from 5th May 1999. The catalogue of criteria can be viewed here: http://www.w3.org/TR/1999/WAI-WEBCONTENT-19990505
Screen readers can be applied. All of the pages are available in text format.
All of the web sites are built using the same principle. The navigation is to be found at the top of the screen for graphic browsers, but at the end of the text for navigation with source text. A skip marker at the start of the page helps you navigate and to skip over the contents area. This is mainly for screen readers and language browsers of significance.
The control of the navigation elements can be done without the use of a mouse with the help of the tab key (jump key). All links are mentioned with a title attribute. Using this, you will receive extra information on the link destination which, depending on your browser, might be shown in different ways, as a speech bubble, in the status bar or at the bottom of the window. A new window will be opened for external links.
The size of the text can be individually adapted. Using your browser, you can adapt the text to meet your requirements. The technical layout of the pages has been provided in a normal-middle (100%) type size. Here are the steps for the following browsers:
Microsoft Internet Explorer: Menu display – Type size – Choose the type size required.
Firefox: Menu display – Choose increase or decrease type size.
Netscape 6: Show menu – Text size in % and enter the required text size in %.
Opera 6 and above: Show menu – Choose the zoom factor required
The web sites have been tested with the current common browsers such as Internet Explorer from 5.5, Netscape from 6.0, Opera, Mozilla and Firefox. The pages are validated by XHTML 1.0 strict or transitional. The contents and layout have been separated with the help of a css. Should you find a mistake, I am grateful for all indications.
Here are the e-mail addresses once again in plain text.
