JEOPARDY


HOW THIS WORKS:
-3 players will compete like usual Jeopardy
-Answers must be given in the form of a question (for example "Who is Mallowgeno?"). Failure to do so will result in an incorrect answer
-No looking up answers obviously
-For a Daily Double you may bet up to your current cash (or $1000 ($2000 in Double Jeopardy), whichever is bigger)

What's different?
-Before each round players will see all the categories
-Players are given 1000 brain power. Players will allocate how much brain power they want to use on each question value in each category.
-Once everyone has submitted their brain power for the round, the starting player will select a category and dollar amount. The player who spent the most brain power on that question will get to answer that question first. If there is a tie, whoever is in control of the board will get to answer the question first. If that player is the player who didn't spend the most on that question and they get the question incorrect, the player with the lower score will get to answer first. If still tied, it will be determined randomly.
-If the player who spent the most brain power on a question gets it wrong, the player who spent the second most will get to answer. If there is a tie, the player in control of the board answers first. If neither were in control, the player with the lowest score answers first. If still tied, it will be determined randomly.
-If a player answers a question wrong, they lose the dollar amount that question was worth.
-When it is a player's turn to answer, they have the option to answer or pass. If they pass they are not penalized and the question moves on to the next player (except in a Daily Double, the answering player MUST wager and answer).
-If a player spends no brain power on a question, they will not get an opportunity to answer that question even if all other players have answered incorrectly.
-After Jeopardy, Double Jeopardy, and Final Jeopardy the player with the most cash wins and gets to face on the next two challengers!
