    Gameplay

    Three contestants will play. Play consists of three rounds: the Jeopardy! Round, the Double Jeopardy! Round, and the Final Jeopardy! Round.

    Jeopardy! Round

    Six categories are announced, each with a column of five trivia clues (phrased in answer form), each one valued, in dollars, incrementally more than the previous, ostensibly by difficulty. Each category is a topical category, and the categories change on each show; the category names are frequently puns or collectively build upon a theme. The values will be $200, $400, $600, $800, and $1,000 for this round of Jeopardy!

    The first player to sign-up is first, then the second is second, and the third one is third. Contestants are free to choose any unselected clue, although contestants usually select lower-valued clues before higher-valued clues in any given category. The host then reads the clue ("He was Luke's father"), after which the first player will answer the question. If they do not correctly answer, then the second player will answer the question, and then the third if they also miss the answer. The first contestant to successfully answer via PM correctly in following the host's reading of the clue must then respond generally in the form of a question ("Who was/Who is/Who's Darth Vader?"). (See Phrasing below.)

    A correct response earns the dollar value of the clue and the opportunity to select the next clue from the board. An incorrect response or a failure to respond within a 24 hour time limit will result in that dollar value of the clue being deducted from the player's score and gives any remaining opponents the opportunity to give the correct answer. If none of the contestants give a correct response, the correct response is read, and the player who has most recently given a correct response to a clue chooses the next clue.

    Daily Doubles

    One clue hidden on the Jeopardy! Round game board is designated a "Daily Double" (a name taken from horse racing). Only the contestant who selects a Daily Double may respond to its clue. The player may wager as much as the maximum amount of a clue on the board (currently $1,000 in the Jeopardy! Round and $2,000 in the Double Jeopardy! Round) or as much as he or she has accumulated, whichever is greater, but must wager at least $5. Players may also indicate that they wish to make it a "True Daily Double", meaning that they are risking all the money that they have accumulated up to that point. Daily Doubles are sometimes designated with special tags, such as "Audio Daily Double" (in which a sound clip is played as part of the clue), "Video Daily Double" (in which a video clip is played as part of the clue), "Celebrity Daily Double" (in which a celebrity delivers the clue), etc. Such a tag is displayed as soon as the Daily Double has been selected.

    Phrasing

    In all of the Rounds, players will be penalized for forgetting to phrase a response in the form of a question; no exceptions!

    Double Jeopardy! Round

    The second round, Double Jeopardy!, works like the first round, with the following exceptions:

    * Six new categories are used.
    * There are two Daily Doubles in this round.
    * The value of each clue is double what it was in the first round.
    * The contestant with the lowest amount of money at the end of the Jeopardy! Round makes the first selection in Double Jeopardy! If there is a tie for second place, the player who signed up first selects first.
    * The response must be phrased in question form (see Phrasing above).

    Finishing Double Jeopardy! with $0 or less

    Contestants who finish Double Jeopardy! with a $0 or negative score are automatically eliminated from the game and not allowed to participate in the game's final round, Final Jeopardy!

    Final Jeopardy! Round

    In the Final Jeopardy! Round, the host first posts a category, the players PM a monetary bet, the host gives the question, and they they PM answers.

    After 24 hours, the Final Jeopardy! clue is revealed and read by the host. Then a winner is declared for the game. The winner will receive colors for winning the ga

    Well, it looks like I'll have to do this by PM after all. So, the rules will be as originally posted.

    LilyHobbitJedi will pick the first category. The only question is does everyone want a "Star Wars" Jeopardy or a regular one?
