This report provides information about an interactive computer game named Say My Name that allows high school and undergraduate students to review individually nomenclature of organic compounds in an engaging and fun way by answering up to 600 questions distributed in three difficulty levels. Responses from students and teachers who have played the game have been quite positive. An assessment of students' knowledge gains was also performed; the results reveal that students who used the game as a complementary didactic tool in their studies had higher numbers of correct answers than did students who studied using conventional learning methods. Say My Name can be played in Portuguese, Spanish, and English online (free of charge) via a Web browser.
