Storyline

The classic game show with a twist; the answers are revealed, but it's up to the contestants to supply the questions. Three contestants, including a returning champion, competed. Six categories are announced (e.g., Pro Football, Presidents, Science and Nature, Famous Bobs, Automobiles and Words), each having five answers ostensibly graded by difficulty, from $10 to $50. The champion chose a category and dollar amount (e.g., "Presidents for $10"), to which host Fleming reads the answer ("The Father of our country; he really didn't chop down a cherry tree"). Contestants had to respond in question form ("Who was George Washington?") ; if correct, they won the value of the question; if he/she was incorrect, failed to answer in time or phrase in the form of a question, that amount was deducted (hence, the dollar amount was "always in jeopardy") and his/her opponents could answer; having enough incorrect answers often led to negative scores. Thereafter, the contestant providing the last ... Written by Brian Rathjen <briguy_52732@yahoo.com>

hey! i know the answer, but, what about the question?
20 April 2005 | by See all my reviews

OK, OK,OK,OK. so this is the original jeopardy, eh? leave it to Art Fleming to host the show.

so for all of you who haven't seen the original or the newer jeopardy, here's the basics: you get a board with 30 questions, and 6 categories to split them up. the idea of the game is to respond the question instead of an answer. the answer is given, and the contestant will ask the question. pretty cool, eh? But remember, this is olden day jeopardy, so, let me break it to you easy. the dollar values ranged from 10-50 dollars. the board was covered by a curtain. and not-so-flashy music to introduce the game. well, in 1984, Merv griffin made the right choice, and brought the show back, and then hired Alex Trebek.

the old game is just like a 60's game-show. old school. but, if you find one of the old jeopardies game-shows, or find one of the first 1984-1985 season episodes, put it in a museum. the game-show is history itself.

just give it the 7.5/10. pretty good for an old game, eh?
