Jeopardy! was created by hPerks
This is Jeopardy! Based on the hit TV show hosted by Canada's very own Alex Trebek, adapted for a forum game. I'm assuming you're familiar with the general format of the show: the host prepares a list of categories, with trivia questions from each category ranked by difficulty; the more difficult the question, the more money at stake for the contestants. Here, you won't be playing for American money; just like the betting thread, we'll be using 100% mint-condition jeefmoney.* Let's do this!

Rules

The first person to respond to this post will choose the first category and amount of money, from those listed below (for example, "MB Mods for $400"). After this, play proceeds as follows:

  • The host gives the clue.

  • Players try to answer the clue.
    • IMPORTANT: When you do this, you must also include in your post the category and amount of money you would like to choose, should your answer be correct. (This speeds up the game so that the host can give the next clue right away.)

  • After a while, the host gives an update:
    • If someone answers correctly, the host gives the appropriate amount of money to that player, and deducts that amount from every player who gave an incorrect answer before that player. In the same post, the host will also give the next clue, according to the category and amount of money chosen by the player who answered correctly.
    • Alternatively, if no one answers correctly after 5 guesses, or 24 hours after the host gave the clue, then no money is deducted from anyone. The host gives the next clue according to the category and amount of money chosen by the first player who made a guess - or if no one made any guesses, then the host chooses for themselves.

  • After all the categories have been exhausted, whoever has the most money wins!
    • The winner has the choice of either being the host next round, or delegating it to whoever responds first. Being the host requires you to be active a lot, and able to come up with good categories and questions to keep things entertaining; make sure you're up to the task.

And one more thing - this is Jeopardy, so of course you have to answer in the form of a question. Good luck!

Footnotes for cheaters:
  • No googling, asking a friend, or using any other source of information that would not be available to a contestant on Jeopardy.
  • You can't guess multiple answers for the same clue.
  • If you don't include your next selection in your answer, your post counts as an incorrect guess.
  • You can't select a category and amount of money that have already been done. So if we've already done the clue for Level Creators for $1000, you can't pick that again.

Credits to Thegeniusyoshi for giving me the idea.


Our host for this round is Frostfire! Take it away!


*Good timing too, because the jeef dollar is soaring right now, as decades of jeefonomics are being overturned due to the unexpected release of Jeef's first finished marble game.

The removal of the Easter Egg in this MBP level, as well as the method by which players would get it, led to the level's world record becoming invalid.

I see your sneaky edits, Rosie ;) Unfortunately NF was the first to both answer correctly and pick a category, so he wins.

World Records for $600

Pascal's "MBP Tribute" from 2007 contains a run of 19.61s on this level, which Matan promised would "send in some shockwaves". Today, the World Record is 8.78s.

This "internal clock" level once had its world record shattered, to the disbelief of everyone, until it was discovered that the record breaker accidentally had the wrong friction properties.

This rarely-active member, with an overall MBP rank of #406, got their name in the 2nd MBP World Record Rampage for a run on a Director's Cut level, which remains unbeaten to this day.

Because of a bug in the game that was pounced on by the entire community when discovered, this level holds the world record for "shortest-lived LB world record" - less than 2 seconds.

This user claimed to be the first non-developer to beat all 120 original MBP Ultimate Times, but after he failed to provide proof beyond a suspicious-looking video, Matan called bullshit: "For someone who lost to me THAT BAD on every single MBO level, you can NOT beat every single UT in this game, trust me."

This mod continues the long standing tradition of renaming the MBG powerups, with amazingly catchy names such as "Acceleration Boost", "Aerocopter", and my personal favourite, the "Rebound Prevention Powerup".

Awesome Hint:

Since the Awesome Time/Score is secret, you will have to beat it in order to find out what it is. Just practice every day, and be ready to keep pressing the 'Restart' button...A LOT!
