Freeopardy ("free-o-pardy") lets you host your own Jeopardy-like game for 1 to three players. One can set answers, questions, Final Freeopardy, and the Daily Double location. Currently Double Freeopardy is unavailable. Sounds should be accurate.

A sample Freeopardy document (.txt) is included. Use the Freeopardy Editor to create/modify your game. You should probably run through all of your answers fit in the display area before presentation (let me know if there is not enough space too often). The Freeopardy document should not be rearranged in any way.

Play begins with Player 1 selecting a Category and Value. Once the host more...

I've been using this little program for a few weeks and it really starts to grow on you!

But why can't I save a new set of categories and questions if I'm not finished in one session? There's no Save or Save As command anywhere in the Freeopardy Editor. Nor can I open a previous session. I tried opening the included text file in the ediotr and all the fields, categories, and questions were blank. I have to resort to TextEdit to make the text files.

Guess it is truly a work in progress...

Freeopardy has been developed with classroom use in mind. It offers teachers a free, easy-to-use review game that can be tailored to any class, and will be sure to interest students with a familiar and popular game concept. Mr. Shull has been very open to suggestions and quick to make corrections where needed. The editor is simple enough for both teachers and students to use. The auto-update option still didn't work for me, but the rest of the program has already been used successfully in my five physics classes this past week, and during back to school night with my students' parents.

Not having Tiger, and not having previous versions to go by, I'd say that it works ok in Panther 10.3.9. After the Final Jeopardy question is answered correctly, the whole program abruptly quits. When you start the game, a dialog box asks if you want to update. Actually, this means to look for the text file containing the categories, questions, and answers. I thought that the requestor was asking to update the program. Maybe the wording of the requestor should be changed to something like "Find game text file"??? I'll have to play with this for a while with my own text files, but it's really cute and the price is outstanding!

I gave it a 3 for stability because of the quitting issue stated above. The opening music is dead on, along with the buzzer sounds.

please upgrade to version 0.9.2b
the dialog, If you click OK, brings you to my site so that you can get the new version.
If you were up to date you would not see it.
Your "stability issue" is fixed as well.
sithlord, email me if you see this post

My wife would eat this up!!!
What would be truely terrific is if this were network playable, with the users seeing the board, player consoles, and board control indications. :)
