How to Play

The game is played much like the popular television show Jeopardy. The game supports up to four players, or four groups of players. You can play by having each player or team answering every question, or the first to raise their hand answers the question. If a question is answered correctly, points are awarded. If the question is answered incorrectly, points are taken away. Each player or team chooses a category in turn regardless of the outcome of the previous answer.
