    Thanks for the cudos. Yes the Jeopardy game asks questions randomly (per topic), generates the topics randomly (and also generates the A, B, C, D answers in a random order) - this was a pain in the @!! writing the code for. I'll try to get it completed shortly for the double-jeopardy part. I had a tough time creating the computer opponents to answer in a somewhat time-set fashion and a certain probability of being correct (which is adjusted in the Change Default settings option.) Again, this was my first shot so I'm still playing around with these settings so this part may change. I haven't tested out going through an entire game myself yet (shame on me) but I'm working on it (and I apologize if there are any wrong answers - but...you can change these and the questions in the "Edit Questions" button.)

    Still - thanks much for trying it out!

    Paul,
    it works fine, I mean the answers are correct.
    One problem to be fixed is when you select "I GIVE UP" it says "Thats Incorrect"
    Another problem is you can add question with more than one correct answer!!
    I think I will ask you questions about code for computer opponents in my Tic Tac Toe Game soon.
    Regards
    Aran

    New version 3 of Jeopardy has been uploaded in the code bank. New features which you can read in the code bank.

    Aran1 - if you click on the I Give Up letter, it's supposed to say that it is incorrect (although I'll try to change it so it simply says you've given up - but it will subtract the $$ and act as a wrong answer.)

    I also thought about allowing multiple answers to be correct. I'm tossing and turning over this one because in a way, I do want the ability where you could possibly make 2 answers correct.

    Thanks again for the feedback!
