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.

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...

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. :)

The Freeopardy document should not be rearranged in any way.

Play begins with Player 1 selecting a Category and Value. Once the host clicks the selection, plays buzz in using the "`" (the key with tilde), "m" and "-" (minus). Host can stop play by hitting "Skip Current" button, or by setting a time limit to an integer greater than zero before selecting.

Please let me know any problems/suggestions/comments and the situation regarding your email. Freeopardy was created using AppleScript Studio in XCode and has only been tested on Mac OS 10.3 and 10.4, let me know if it works for you too.
