Jeopardy is the long-running television quiz game hosted by none other than Mr. Jeopardy himself, Alex Trebek. Jeopardy is based on a very odd quiz system that gives each contestant the answer to the question, leaving contestants the job of figuring out the question to the answer, something like "What is ham?" Sound confusing? Good.

The NES Jeopardy game, of course, runs the same way as the show. The player in charge gets to choose a topic and mystery que- errr... answer and any of the contestants must buzz in to give the answ... err... question and win the money. There were three other Jeopardy games on the NES besides this one, but this was the first.
