Do you have an option to set up a timer for each question, posssibly along with the normal J music?

Sorry Dennis. I haven’t attempted to make a direct copy of the Jeopardy game show. One reason there is no timer is many schools use this as a literacy exercise – The MC does NOT read the question to the participants – the participants have to read it for themselves, comprehend it and buzz in. Some questions are longer than others. In the TV game show, the timer doesn’t start until after the question has been read out – that would require the MC in this game to press a button to start the timer – an extra process.

Regardless, everyone gets the same amount of time to answer and it’s the MC role to decide how long is too long. Hope that answers (before my time ran out 🙂 )

Hi Steve,

All the quizzes can be found (coincidentally) under “Quizzes” at the top. The quiz file you specifically want is here:

https://jeopardygame.wordpress.com/2007/09/12/quiz-mp3-music-quiz-1/

There is a link to download it from mediafire.

Hi Stu,

We used “Stu’s Double Jeopardy” yesterday at an all-staff retreat for our organization, and put our executive managers through the ringer. The questions are all specific to our organization, so no value in sharing the quiz—but I did want to share with you how amazed and ‘cool’ everyone thought your program was. It really added to the excitment of the event, and the peals of laughter at the ‘wrong’ answers/general silly actions of the ‘contestants’ gave a burst of energy (and stress release) to everyone. Thank you so much for your program…

Hi Josh,

Download any of the quizzes here or check the ones in your QuizBoxes\Quizzes folder. They are simple text files. There is no export/import process for reading some Powerpoint based Jeopardy game because they are all different.

You could of course cut/paste each question/answer between the two.

Michael, you can’t edit images in the game program – you have to prepare the images elsewhere. Read this page:

I have a lenova think pad with windows 8. Stus quiz boxes runs fine, but the sound files wont work. Any suggestions

So there’s no sound anywhere? No beeps when question displayed? No sounds for correct/incorrect? Or is it no sound you’ve added to questions? Have you tried the same quiz on another PC?

The music files or mp3 files won’t play. Other sounds that belong to game work great. Plays on other computers. When I click on the cd icon to activate song or sound bite, nothing. It does run windows 8. Tried downloading the patch you have but isn’t compatible with Lenovo think pad.

Hi Patti. If it plays the normal in-game sounds, then it should play your sound files, as long as they are genuine mp3 files. Email me one of your sound files for testing to stu_hasic”at”yahoo.com

It still will play the files if I click on them outside the game. I really think it has something to do with the think pad. I have never had a problem with this anywhere on any computer. I just didn’t know if you had anyone have this problem with think pad before.
