a) SIT TOGETHER, and
b) Designate a SPEAKER who
will respond to the prompts (You
may NOT change speakers).
- Jeopardy The game consists of
FIVE categories,
each containing
FIVE questions
- Jeopardy Questions are randomly
arranged, NOT by degree of

- Jeopardy Each speaker may select only
ONE question per round
- Jeopardy Once the selected question is
posted on the screen,
the SPEAKER of the team has
10 seconds to respond.
- Jeopardy The speaker may consult with
teammates before responding
- Jeopardy During the game, whispering is
OK, but LOUD talking and/or
disruptions DURING THE
GAME may result in point loss
for the entire team.
- Jeopardy The response should be phrased in
the FORM OF A QUESTION.
(Words, phrases, and statements –
even if correct – may be
disqualified)
- Jeopardy A CORRECT ANSWER earns the
team the amount of points
indicated on the jeopardy board.
- Jeopardy If the speaker does not respond
correctly within 10 seconds, the
question passes on to the next
team speaker, who has 5 seconds
to respond.
- Jeopardy The number of points for the
correct answer at this stage are
the same as for
the previous team.
- Jeopardy Questions that are not answered
correctly by the selecting team are
offered to the other teams in turn
until a correct answer is given or
all teams have guessed incorrectly.

designates the number of points –
up to the max. points earned by the
team. If correct, the team earns the

remember, LOUD TALKING and/or
DISRUPTIONS DURING THE

the entire team.
- Jeopardy The judge’s decisions are FINAL
and whining, pouting, and/or
complaints will NOT BE
ENTERTAINED…
