You’ve tried games that test your card playing, your imaginary farming skills, and your ability to hurl small birds. Finally there’s a game that will make you better at your job.
Who could forget a face like this? Clippy is back and he’s ready to teach you and your students better ways to use Microsoft Office! This week’s F-cubed is Ribbon Hero 2.
Do you feel like you or your students are using Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and OneNote the same way version after version, or have you avoided using one of these apps because you don’t know how? Or, do you know there’s so much more Office could be doing for you if only you knew how to access it? No more! Straight from the secret lairs of Office Labs we present Ribbon Hero 2: Clippy’s Second Chance! (which is already installed on your computer)
To access Clippy’s world, just open Word, Excel, PowerPoint, or OneNote and look for the orange button in the top right of the screen. You can also find Clippy under the “start” menu in the folder called “Microsoft Office Labs.”

In Ribbon Hero 2, you’ll hop on board Clippy’s stolen time machine and explore different time periods. With each time period, you get to explore a new game board with challenges you must complete to get to the next level. Each challenge takes you into Word, Excel, PowerPoint, or OneNote to complete a task. Discover new Office features by actually using them, with a hint button to fall back on in case you get stuck. Race for a high score with colleagues, classmates and friends, or even put your score on your resume to show off your Office skills!
