Play one of America's favorite game shows a little bit differently in Super Jeopardy!. Now up to four contestants can compete at once instead of three, with or without a four-player adapter. Also, points are distributed instead of dollars and on a different scale. In the "Jeopardy!" round, the six categories are worth 200, 400, 600, 800 and 1000, while in "Double Jeopardy!" the point values skyrocket to 500, 1000, 1500, 2000 and 2500.

In its basic form, though, Super Jeopardy! is basically the same as the show. For instance, each category when chosen yields a pertinent answer for which a question must be supplied in order for a contestant to attain the allotted number of points. Incorrect answers will result in a loss of that many points. Also, there is one Daily Double in the first round and there are two in the second, where the person who chose the category wagers a desired amount of points for an answer only he or she can assign a question to. The game concludes with "Final Jeopardy!," in which the four players wager their points against one final answer.
