How do I hide text on a PowerPoint slide using VB code on another slide?

I am working on a 'Jeopardy' style PowerPoint presentation to use in my organization.  I have most of it figured out using several examples from the internet, but I would like to HIDE the text on slide #2 when an anwser is chosen from the slide to mimic the TV show.

In VB, I would use text1.visible = false from a text1.click event.  

Can I do something similar in PowerPoint 2007 using VBA?

I can't figure it out using the code examples online.  I have attached the .pptx for an example/

There's no need for code to do that. Just add a disappear animation triggered by a click on the text

Hmmm..... sounds good.

I played with it a bit, and added a 'disappear' 'on-click', but it changes when I click on the slide (somewhere other than the text) rather than when I click on the text (which is hyperlinked to another slide).  

How do I attach animation to the text, instead of to the slide?

There is info on triggers here
Guide to Triggers

Pt 4 is about jeopardy but I would read all the parts
