  1. Enter JeoPARODY quiz questionsEnter the questions in TEAM BATTLE in the same order they appear on the JeoPARODY board.

    Starting with the first category, enter the questions in the following order: Category 1 - $100, Category 1 - $200, Category 1 - $300, etc. Do the same for the 5 remaining categories. 

Pro tip #1

Make it easy to find the corresponding quiz question in TEAM BATTLE by labeling each one using the category name and $value.

 

Since the players read each quiz question as they are revealed in the JeoPARODY game board, instead of re-writing each question in TEAM BATTLE, simply enter the category name and $value that corresponds with the question.

 

This will help the Moderator find the question, open it, and click the Show the Correct Answer button before the game host clicks the TEAM BATTLE trophy to advance the game to slide #10 (slide 10 will be covered in step #5 of this section

For example: 

The player select Sports (category) for $100 ($value)

The host clicks the corresponding box in the game board and reads the question aloud: Which NBA Team Plays Home Games At The United Center? 

In TEAM BATTLE, open the question labeled Sports $100 :


After the players submit their answers, click Show the Correct Answer followed by Score the Results to reveal the winner and update the leaderboard. 




Pro tip #2

Keep the game moving by using the TEAM BATTLE countdown timer:


  1. Set up points and scoring

In JeoPARODY, there are no points for 2nd place. Only the first player to answer correctly wins.


Enter the corresponding $value in the Points to be Awarded box for each question: Ex. a $300 question should be entered as: 300


✅ In the event of a tie, the winner will be determined based on the player who answered correctly in the fastest time.

 

✅ Playing with teams? The team with the fastest time on average wins.
