Jeopardy is a classic game show where players are given the answer first, and they must supply the question. It has a wonderful format for reviewing material studied in school. Create your own Jeopardy game using this easy template.
Features of the Product:
• Scoreboard to keep track of score for 3 players or teams
• Number amounts for questions that have been selected are hidden to show that it is no longer available
• Five fully customizable categories with five questions each.
• Pages are hyperlinked to the points on the game board
• Question/answer pages have a code that corresponds to the column and question to help put the right information where you want it
• A “Final Jeopardy” question on the game
• A countdown timer for timing Final Jeopardy
A scoreboard is placed on the top of the game board. It can be used for two or three players or teams. The default is “Player #1, Player #2, and Player #3”. You can change the scoreboard to show “Team #1, Team #2, and Team #3, by simply clicking the Player # boxes. When you close the program, it will revert to the default.
You may change the scores by clicking the number box. The score will increase by 100 for each time you click. Caution: Please be careful to not “over click.” You cannot take away from a score. You must close the program resetting all scores to zero.
Once a question has been selected, it hides the number to show that it has already been used.
Suggested Materials for the game:
• Computer and a way to display the game (projector)
• Answer buzzers
• Small dry erase boards and markers (or paper and markers)
To play the game:
1. Open the file and select Slide Show>Play from Start. If you are playing with teams instead of individuals, click the Player # boxes one time each. The game is ready to play.
2. When a category and question is selected, click the number that corresponds to the question. It will reveal the “Jeopardy Answer.”
3. When you are ready to reveal the “Jeopardy Question,” click enter or the space bar.
4. When you are ready for the next turn, click the yellow arrow to return to the game board.
5. When it is time for “Final Jeopardy”, click the box in the lower right corner on the game board. A second click reveals the category. Have students write how much they want to risk on the category on their board. They may only risk the amount that they have. This will be the only time that points will be deducted for incorrect answers, but the scoreboard will not support subtracting points.
6. Click to reveal the “Final Jeopardy Answer.” After time has passed, have all players put down their markers.
7. Have each player reveal his or her “Jeopardy Question.” Show the correct question. Add the amount that each player earns for being correct. Subtract the amount risked if the player is not correct.
8. The winner is the one with the highest score.
