How to Play the Home Version of Jeopardy!

Read this post on your language:

Show off your knowledge with this home version of the TV show Jeopardy!

Materials Needed:

  • Index cards
  • Paper
  • Pen or pencils
Playing Time: 45-60 minutes

How to Play:

1. Select a number of categories that are relevant to your group of players, such as home, work, kids, entertainment, cars, vacations, relationships, sports, and so on.

2. Write the categories on each index cards.

3. For each category, collect some anecdotes that relate to each topic and that are personal to the group.

4. Use those anecdotes to write five answers related to a topic on individual index cards. For example, if the category is "kids," you might write, "This little boy got a marble stuck in his nose" or "This child sold more scout cookies than the rest of her troop." Keep track of the questions on a separate sheet of paper.

5. Place five category cards on the table of floor in a row where everyone can see them.

6. Under each category, place the index cards with related answers, facedown, to complete your game board.

7. Have the players take turns choosing a category. Begin with the first index card under that category. Read the information on the index card, and ask the players to give their answers in the form of a question. If the player gets the questions right, he or she keeps the cards and plays again.

8. Continue playing until all the questions are gone. Or set a time limit on the game, as in the TV game.

9. Award a prize to the player with the most cards.


Instead of personalizing the game, use a variety of questions and answers on general topics.
