CastEdit

  • Host - Alex Trebek
  • Announcer - Johnny Gilbert

Game RulesEdit

  1. In each new game, the returning champion's podium is on the very left.
  2. The board would show six categories, each with five clues, with dollar values ranging from $200 to $1,000. One of the clues is a Daily Double. The returning champion selects first.
  3. After a clue is revealed and done reading, any contestant can ring in. If a correct response is given, the value is added to the contestant's total, and that contestant gets to select again.
  4. If an incorrect response is given, the value is deducted, and another contestant gets to select.
  5. If no contestant rings in, the host will read the correct response, and the player in command of the board selects again.
  6. If the Daily Double is found, only the contestant who found it can respond to the clue. The player can wager from $5 to all of his/her money.
  7. The round ends when time runs out or if all the clues have been read.
  8. In Double Jeopardy!, the dollar values now range from $400 to $2,000, and two Daily Doubles are hidden on the board. The player with the lowest score selects first.
  9. After Double Jeopardy! ends, if a contestant finishes with $0 or a negative score, that contestant is eliminated from the game and automatically receives the third place prize of $1,000.
  10. Before the commercial break, the category for Final Jeopardy! is revealed. After that, the host will read the clue, then the contestants would have 30 seconds to write down their responses.
  11. After 30 seconds, the contestants' responses and wagers are revealed. Whoever ends with the highest score wins the game, gets to keep his/her cash winnings, and gets to play again on the next show. The second place contestant will win $2,000.
  12. In the event of a tie, one of three things can happen: If two or all three contestants end Final Jeopardy! with the same winning score, they all return for the next show. If there is a tie in a special tournament, one more clue is revealed, and the contestant who rings in with a correct response will be the winner. If all three contestants end Final Jeopardy! with $0, no one wins, and either three new contestants appear on the next show, or in special tournaments, a wildcard spot is added for the next round. In the event of a three-way tie at $0, a total of $5,000 will be awarded to the contestants for that game ($1,000 for whoever accumulated the least amount of money and $2,000 each for the other two). This recently happened on January 18, 2016.
