Jeopardy! Tournament of Champions

Hello again. I took a break while the Giants were off.

TV for Thinkers

I hope you are watching Jeopardy! Tournament of Champions, which is continuing until next Friday, November 16th.

The contestants on Jeopardy! Tournament of Champions are previous winners, competing for a $250,000 cash prize. The questions (or answers) are much harder than “regular” Jeopardy! I watched last night’s episode with my daughter Audrey, and we could only answer about six questions between us. There were several questions and responses with names that we heard for the first time in our lives.

Bring Your Family

Try this:

Name a country which is ruled by a Sultan, and has an English language national anthem?

Answer (requires Javascript)

Don’t feel bad. None of the contestants knew that one.

Watch Jeopardy! Tournament of Champions with your family. Give everyone a ballpoint pen, and use it as a clicker. Try to click your pen faster than the contestants “buzz” during the show.

It will be fun. You can all get stumped together.
