Meaning and history

Jeopardy! Logo history

It was Merv Griffin’s wife, who came up with the idea of an intellectual tv show in the 1960s. Merv enhanced the initial concept, and already in 1964 Jeopardy was born.

According to the rules, players for three rounds answer questions of varying cost and score points, and in the final round, they bet and answer the 91st question. The main thing in the game is, of course, erudition, but sometimes the speed of thinking is also decisive. The program is still popular today: viewers enjoy watching the intellectuals wrestle with each other.

This television quiz game is popular in many countries around the world. The game has three rounds: Jeopardy!, Double Jeopardy! (question prices are doubled) and Final Jeopardy! (in which you can bet any amount from 0 to all of -in). The 1st and 2nd play 6 topics with 5 questions each, while the Final Jeopardy offers 1 question and gives you time to think. The essence of the game remains the same: you have to answer the questions correctly.
