I'm Wicked good at Jeopardy!!!

I would say I would win the show about 40% of the time, except when they have stupid catagories like "Opera", or "Old Testimate".
I'm full of useless knowledge, but I can't remember importaint stuff.

It's not just knowing the answers. You gotta have a good buzzer thumb. I have it on PS3. It's cool cause you can play others on-line. Eventually they repeat alot of questions if you play enough.

Does the PS3 version of Jeopardy cost like $60?

Just askin'.

I'm okay at Jeopardy but not good enough to win if I was really on. I bet my brother could do it, though.

Is that where they want to know the name of infamous pirate captains' grouchy sidekicks?

btw - the screening test they give is much harder than most of the shows. How do I know this?

I'm pretty good at trivia in general, but not being American, I not as familiar with local American landmarks and minor public fugures, so I'd be at a disadvantage on an American game show. If there was a Canadian or international contest I would do better.

They have a pretty fun trivia game at Dave & Busters, last time I went. 9 can play at a time.

Ditto, I'm bad at American trivia but good at most everything else. My mum and I sit and watch jeopardy and play along when we have the time; one night, I "won" over 80,000!
