RULES FOR GENERAL CONFERENCE JEOPARDY

HOW TO PLAY JEOPARDY 

Each topic has five questions with five different point levels ranging from 100 to 500. (Double jeopardy is 200 to 1000) It's easy to just put the topics on the board and in a grid pattern -  put the values 100-500 for each category. 

Finally, make the Final Question the most difficult question to challenge the players.

The teams and decide how much they are going to try to get for points if they win it.  If they lose it they lose those points so many times the teams do not know who will win until final jeopardy is played.  

Playing the Game

  • Split all players into a few teams. 
  • Create a scoreboard on a whiteboard or on paper if you wish.   
  • Allow the first team to choose a topic and a point value for a question. 
  • IF they win, they can keep on picking a question until that team loses the question. 
  • Allow players to raise their hands if they want to answer the question. 
  • If someone on a team answers a question correctly, they gain that number of points.  If they get it wrong, they lose that number of points.  
  • Final Question.  This way, it gives teams who are far behind a shot at still earning a large amount of points at the very end of the game. At the end of the game, the team that earns the most points wins Classroom Jeopardy!
