How do I Copy Parts of my Own Games?
You may want to recycle some of your game content without modifying your original game. You might do this if you want to create a series of games with similar content, or if you want to create different versions of the same game.

1. Start by clicking “Edit” on the game you want to copy content from. Once the game board is launched, you’ll see the three dots above each category.

2. Click on the three dots and press “Copy” from the drop-down menu.

3. Close your game and return to the My Games page.
4. Press “Edit” under the game you want to copy the content to.

5. Click on the three dots above the category that you want to paste the category from the other game to. Select “Paste”.

6. After you select “Paste”, press “Yes, Paste it” to confirm you want to paste the category into the spot you’ve selected. If you do this to a category with content already in it, the new category will replace the current one. A pop up will confirm that you’ve pasted your category successfully.
