About JeopardyLabs

JeopardyLabs was created by me, Matt Johnson, while working on my undergrad at Washington State University, Vancouver. JeopardyLabs makes it easy to create jeopardy templates without PowerPoint. Give it a try, you'll probably like it a lot.

JeopardyLabs is not affiliated with Jeopardy!® or Sony Pictures Digital Inc.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do I play this during a coronavirus lock down?

Use a video conferencing system like Zoom, Skype or (my favorite) Jitsi. Get all your players to join the conference. Then open up your Jeopardy game in a web browser, and share your screen. Your players can "buzz in" by shouting their name, or using chat.

I can't login!!! What's wrong?

Did you pay $20 for a membership? If not, you don't have an account to login to. JeopardyLabs is free to use, and an account is optional.

Assuming you paid for an account...

Did you try the password reset form?

Did you verify you're using the right username/email? The correct username to use is in the password reset email.

Is the login or password reset form not recognizing your email address? Try a different email address. Maybe you registered with a different email.

Not getting the password reset email? Check your spam folder.

You paid for a membership, and JeopardyLabs still isn't recognizing your email? This is because you have a typo in your email address. You'll have to email me at support@jeopardylabs.com so I can manually fix the typo.

How do I put sound in my game?

Assuming your sound clip is hosted elsewhere (SoundCloud or YouTube for example), you can use the third party embed code they give you.

In your Jeopardy question, click the </> icon, and then paste in the code. Then click the </> icon again.

I'm trying to embed a YouTube video, and it isn't working!
The particular YouTube video you're trying to embed does not allow embedding, or it is a private video.
Can I save my template to a flashdrive so I can play it without an internet connection?

Yes. Click the download link on your template, and save the file to your flashdrive. Open the file using Chrome (or whatever web browser you use). No internet connection is required, but no external resources like videos or images will load.

This will not work on the iPad/iPhone because of its (flawed) security model.

What about Double Jeopardy, Final Jeopardy and Daily Doubles?

JeopardyLabs is a Jeopardy-like game, it's not Jeopardy™.

For a "double Jeopardy"-like experience, you can add extra rows to your game (and adjust the points appropriately), or create a new game with double the points. For a final question, I recommend handing your players cards to write their wagers on (since the wagers are supposed to be secret). Add an extra column to your game called "Final Question", with one question in it.
