Barring any programming changes to the site, how would you suggest the next game be handled differently? Any rule change suggestions? Prize money? Returning champaions?

I'm open to your ideas. Please put them in, while the last game is still fresh.

Hmm....
well, one thing.
I think everyone who has positive points after Final Jeopardy (p'haps I should be less cocky next game) should get points. The second+third place real jeopardy contestants get their bucks....

How long til the next game?
I want another shot. Smile

One possible rule you might want to add--the person that answered the prvios question correctly has to wait 12 hours before posting an answer to the newly posted question.

That will give those that don't "live" online a chance to answer.

A good and bad idea. Good - it gives everyone else a fair chance. Bad - it punishes those that are everpresent.

Well, it really doesn't punish them any more than anyone else.... Wink

I know where longbow is coming from too, I know I've logged in to see one person answer 2 or 3 questions in a row.......and I log in almost every day... Razz

Can anyone verify this (for conversation's sake)? I was always under the impression that only the winner walked away with the cash.

But, I'm always willing to chnage the format here, to better fit the nature of a board (no pun intended) game.

As for the next one....definitely by June, but I'm considering earlier. We'll see how well I do with real-life committments first.

Well, as the real joepardy only has 3 contestants, only the winner gets money....but I would say with the number of possible players we have, giving the top 3 winnings wouldn't be that bad of an idea.... Wink

Okay, I can see a variation of that, pssibly. Maybe something like
1-3 players: 1 winner
4-6 players: 2 winners
7 and above: 3 winners

That sounds resonable...

REALLY late response.

How about we run two concurrent games.

The winners from the both go on to the final show.

The second and third places battle it out for the next two spots.

And the losers, plus two wild card entries, battle for the fourth place.

Then, we have the NSS JEOPARDY CHAMPIONSHIP!

Bold idea...but that requires a lot of (ready) answers drafted up.

And you should all know by now that anything requiring a lot of work is a bad idea in Dan world.
