PowerPoint is a great tool for both students and teachers, and people use it for creating all sorts of presentations. If you want to learn how to use PowerPoint, there are numerous web sites with tutorials. I have created thousands of presentations as a graphic designer. My intention is to add more presentations and PowerPoint links that can support the academic community.

One of my best presentations is a Jeopardy Game that can be customized for any subject and grade. This is for educational purposes only and by downloading the presentation you agree to these terms. You may link to this page, so others can download the game, but you may not offer it from another location without permission. Notify me by email if you create a link here.

 

Jeopardy Game General Instructions

  1. Please, read the terms above before downloading.

  2. Right click the NEW VERSION link and choose "save target as" and copy it to your own computer or storage device, or click directly on the New Version link in the side bar and choose to save it directly to your computer.

Downloading the OLD VERSION (for use with older version of PowerPoint than cannot embed sound files, i.e. PowerPoint 97) If you download the NEW version and there is NO sound, you will need to download the zipped file of the old version if you want to have sounds.

  1. Please, read the terms above before downloading.

  2. To download the files (they are zipped) click here or on the link in the left sidebar. Select save. Create a new folder, i.e., Jeopardy, to save the file.

  3. Double-click on the file, jeopardy.zip. You'll find 7 sound files (.wav files), Jeopardy(.pps - a show file) and Doublejeopardy - a regular PowerPoint file. Copy and paste these file up one level, outside the zip folder, but in the new Jeopardy folder you created. You can discard the zip file.

  4. Keep all the files together and DO NOT rename them. The presentation consists of numerous links and it is IMPERATIVE that all the files are in the same folder and none of the file names be changed for the game to work properly, unless, of course, you are willing to update the links in the presentations.

  5. If you double-click on the Jeopardy show file, the presentation will begin. To edit this file, open the file from within the PowerPoint software. Subsitute the text with your own. Double-clicking on the Doublejeopardy file will open directly inside of PowerPoint..

  6. The presentation flows because the slides are linked to the main interface board. Play the tutorials for more assistance.

I have created some tutorials to assist users to dowload, customize and play the game (see sidebar). Actual scoring options are not included.This game will work with PowerPoint version 1997 and newer versions.
