# StraightDope Jeopardy 2.

Here we go again.

Standard Jeopardy rules apply. If you do not know the rules to Jeopardy, read them. They are as follows:

You pick a category and the dollar amount. Based on the dollar amout is the basis for the answer’s toughness. Higher dollars obviously have tougher answers.

If you get it right, you get that dollar amount. If you get it wrong, you lose that much.

Oh yeah, and you must answer with a question of course. Example: If the clue given is “THIS has whiskers, purrs, and eats cat food”, you’d answer “What is a cat?”

Easy peasy, right?

Now, online and on this message board, of course things will go a bit different, so here’s the lowdown on how this will be played:

-Anyone can play that wants to. When someone picks a category and an amount, ANYONE can then answer it if they know it.

-Your answer MUST be in the form of a question. If you do not do this, I’ll ignore your answer and it won’t count. However, I won’t minus points for it, and you ARE still in the question as long as you can put it in the form of a question first.

-The first person with the question gets it. Sorry, but that’s how it has to go on this message board because replies come so fast. So you have to be fast in your replies in this. I will only take the first person who replies with the correct one.
I find that this game sometimes moves so fast that a tip would be to just stay in the topic and keep hitting refresh. However…wrong answers I will deduct points off, even if it’s a repeated wrong answer.

-The person who gets the question right will be able to choose the next category and dollar amount.

• Read what the categories will be about below the table. This will explain what kind of answer is needed.

• This is only the first round. After this round The game does not end. Double Jeopardy will be tomorrow, along with the start of Final Jeopardy.

• You may look up answers if you can. How would I know if you did or not?

• Finally, I am human. I make mistakes sometimes. If I got an answer wrong myself, or if there is a debate about what an answer really is, then point it out to me and I’ll do my best to correct it. This also goes with scores…If you see I didn’t take off or add points to a score, inform me. I usually am good about this, but sometimes it slips my mind to change the last copy and paste deal.

So, let’s get started, shall we? The categories for the first round are:

## Initial Reaction 100 | 200 | 300 | 400 | 500 |

Mixed Members 100 | 200 | 300 | 400 | 500 |
For the category Mixed Members, I’ll throw together different usernames to form one name. You must give me ALL of the names in the mix.
For the category Initial Reaction, I’ll give the initials of a Doper username, and you tell me who it is.

If nobody answers the current question in 15 minutes, time is up and nobody gets it.
The first person to reply to this thread gets to go first.

I’ll take Initial Reaction for \$100.

N.H.I.B.I

Time’s up.

Nobody got “Who is Never Have I Because I”

## Initial Reaction - | 200 | 300 | 400 | 500 |

Mixed Members 100 | 200 | 300 | 400 | 500 |

The next person to reply to this topic gets to choose the next category.

I don’t get it. Neither the “answer” nor the subject indicated it had anything to do with usernames.

I’ll bite:

Topics, 100.

Well, it’s SD Jeopardy, which means every question will have to do with Straightdope and it’s members, topics, etc.

Underneath I typed “For the category Initial Reaction, I’ll give the initials of a Doper username, and you tell me who it is.”

So I thought it was pretty self explanitory.

Topics 100.

THIS is the largest replied to topic to date in the IMHO forum.

What is “You’re the last person on Earth…”

Incorrect.

Spit or Swallow? A followup poll TMI?

Oh, and thanks for the clarification - I guess I completely missed that!

Correct.

## Initial Reaction - | 200 | 300 | 400 | 500 |

Mixed Members 100 | 200 | 300 | 400 | 500 |

Munch 100
Stuffy -100

Choose a category, Munch.

Topics, 200

(I am so kicking Stuffy’s ass!)

This was the name of the topic that Satan started that resulted in an invasion from the Left Behind boards.

Less try that again.

Sorry, but your answer must be in the form of a question and have the topic’s title.

I hate you, 'punha.

What is “For David B, the good Doctor and others who are knowledgable about Creation debate”?

(don’t see how that didn’t match the requirements…)

Correct.

## Initial Reaction - | 200 | 300 | 400 | 500 |

Mixed Members 100 | 200 | 300 | 400 | 500 |

Punha 200
Munch 100
Stuffy -100

Choose a category, Punha…

And I think I mistakend you for another person. Weren’t you the one that won the last one?
