HERE'S WHAT'S NEW:

Well, my "little vacation" ended up lasting two and a half years... funny how life steers your life in directions you weren't planning on. I'll start off with occasional posts, but I fully plan to resume this blog to full speed by the new year.

I hope you'll come back for frequent visits, to see new reviews, to share opinions, to take a survey (or two), and to celebrate the shows and show people that have made the TheatreScene!

Broadway Game: Jeopardy! Round 1

I don't know about you, but when the TV show Jeopardy! has "Broadway" or something related as a topic, I get really excited.  Inevitably, though, I either get disgusted because the answers, uh, questions are so easy or because the cover some obscure quote from Shakespeare or earlier!


Anyway, I came across this program that allows you to create a game board in the style of Jeopardy!, and I thought, "why not?"  So I created round one of a fun (I hope) and mildly challenging game with ALL Broadway related topics!

It works just like the TV game:

  1. Double-click on the link below and a new window will pop up. 
  2. Select the number of teams - by yourself = 1 Team, etc.
  3. Then the Jeopardy! board will appear.  Review the topics and start selecting!
  4. The answer comes up, and you verbally make your answer.  Click "Correct Answer" to see it. Click the + sign to add points automatically, and the - sign if you get it wrong.  The computer will automatically keep your score.
  5. Click "Continue" to make your next selection.  Keep going until all the squares have been chosen.  (You can impose your own time limit if you want...)

Unfortunately, there is no "Daily Double."  BUT if you want to have one and are willing to keep your own score after that, here's the square I intended to be "Daily Double" for this round: $400 under "Broadway Divas."

Good Luck!
