The category values can be reset anytime by exiting the presentation and reopening it. You are able to type scores onto a scoreboard while playing in presentation mode. The presentation has been coded to help you easily navigate from the category board to questions and answers without scrolling.
The Google Slides version should be played in full screen, edit mode. Instructions and a video tutorial are provided that show how this is done. You are able to type scores onto a scoreboard but the category values do not disappear when they are clicked on. This is a limitation of Google Slides. But, markers are provided alongside the category board that you can drag and drop over the category values after they have been used.
