I was really excited with this week’s scratch-off card e-learning challenge. Scratch-off effect has an element of surprise while you’re keeping a coin in your hand you’re wondering what’s going be under the scratch-off area.
I immediately matched the ad seen the other day with my project idea for the challenge.
As I currently live in the UK, my first choice of flag was Union Jack. I was able to find 5 more flags hidden in the mix of red, white and blue. The most sentimental one was white-red flag of Poland as it’s the country I come from. Polska!
It was quite easy to build the project in Storyline 2 as actually I needed only 3 core elements for the interaction to work perfectly:
two states for the coin (normal and drag over)
four states for silver scratch areas (normal, and 3 more states representing in-progress revealed areas every time a coin is hovered over – I used Photoshop for creating states graphics)
five layers, each showing a hidden flag of: Poland, The Netherlands, France, Indonesia and Monaco.
Every time a coin was dragged over a sliver area a variable was executed (+1). When the variable got to 4 a layer with a flag was shown and a scratch-off area was hidden. Here's link to download original Storyline file.

How do you like the idea? Or anyone of you can find any more hidden flags? Give me a shout what you think and as always: stay creative!
