Jeopardy [A-Z Games]


Note: I’m doing the April A-to-Z challenge without signing up or linking back to the main site.

Everyone I know enjoys trivia games and especially Jeopardy with Alex Trebek. The fun part about Jeopardy is that the answers are given first and the contestants reply with a question. Three players compete in 6 categories (timed) and in 3 rounds. More details about the rules can be found here.

Merv Griffin created this game show and it debuted way back on March 30, 1964 with Art Fleming as host. Alex Trebek began hosting in 1984 and has hosted ever since. Alex recently disclosed some sad news of pancreatic cancer, but he appears to be doing well after treatment (fingers crossed). ❤️

I haven’t watched Jeopardy regularly in a long time, though I did watch some of the lead-up to “GOAT.” I just don’t have much patience for ongoing series these days. I’ve only recently restarted watching TV at all and gravitate to movies and other things I can binge-watch in a few days.

Please tune in tomorrow when I will blog about Kismet.

  2. Mary and I watch it every weeknight. We’ve decided there are far more interesting champions than Ken Jennings or Brad Rutter. I’m hearing that Alex might not be doing all that well, that the cancer is affecting his cognitive abilities, so I don’t know how much longer he’ll be hosting. We’re trying to figure out who might be the next host.

    I got some of my A to Z Challenge theme ideas from Jeopardy. Portmanteaus, eight-letter words, starts with one letter and ends with the next, starts and ends with the same letter were all ideas I got from the show.

    • You know… I didn’t find them that interesting either. I prefer “normal” smart people who don’t have a system. They’re just more fun and relatable, even if they’ve studied a bit first. Sad about Alex 😢

  3. Art Fleming hosted Jeopardy from 1964 until 1975 and again from 1978 to 1979. It was off the air due to bad ratings in 1976 and 1977.
