I'm sure everybody reading this FAQ has at the very least, watched a game of 
Jeopardy. It is a trivia game show where Alex Trebek gives you an answer for a 
category and you have to give the question. The questions are given in the form 
of "What is...", "Who is...", etc. The game will give you that part so all you 
have to do is type out the correct answer, or for the sake of Jeopardy, the 
correct question. When you are reading the answers in the next section, the 
"A" is the answer, or the part that is given on the screen. The "Q" is the 
question which is what you will have to type out.
The point of the game is obviously to get the questions correct, but also to 
have the most money at the end of the game. The first two rounds will consiste 
of six categories and five questions in each category. The first round will 
have prizes worth $200, 400, 600, 800, and 1000 respectively. The second round 
will have prizes worth $500, 1000, 1500, 2000, and 2500 respectively. There 
will be one random "Double Jeopardy" question where you wager how much you are 
willing to wager on a question before answering it. 
If you have a positive score above $0 after the second round, you will enter 
the final jeopardy round. You will be shown the final jeopardy category and 
have to wager whatever amount you want. You will not get to see the question 
until after you wager so either use the answers in this guide or bet based on 
how much you know in the category. After this final round, whoever has the most 
money will be the winner.
*PLEASE NOTE - The way I wrote this guide was to physically play it and write 
down each and every question I got in game. There may obviously be typos and I 
could have missed some questions. I went through a hundred rounds without 
getting any new questions so I figured I was done but if you find any questions 
that may have unfortunately slipped by, I would greatly appreciate it if you e-
mailed me the questions and answers at Thank you for
