Game Details

Date: Thursday, April 22, 2021

Time: 6:15 – 8:15pm EST

Content: The questions will be based on content of the Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday Clinical Update presentations. (you will be given access to the presentations ahead of time to study)

Game Play:

1. Jeopardy will take place via Zoom Webinar

  • Contestants will have ability to control their camera and microphone, but attendees (audience) will only have the ability to view the presenters and communicate using the chat box.
  • Teams will need to use a secondary device such as Microsoft Teams or a text thread to communicate with each other for team-only discussion.

2. Game will consist of 2 rounds with 5 categories in each, plus a final Jeopardy round.

3. Teams alternate turns – there is no buzzer/race to be the first team to answer.

4. Team 1 picks a category and point value – question is read (e.g. “Women’s Health for 200”).

5. All teams discuss the answer via their team’s secondary communication platform; respective captains enter the answer into a Google doc before time expires.

    • The team who picked the question chooses to attempt to answer the question or to “pass”
      • If they attempt and are correct – points are awarded, and the turn is over.
      • If they attempt and are incorrect – they lose that many points and any team who has submitted the correct answer earns 100 points.
      • If they pass, they neither lose nor gain points and any team who has answered the correct answer earns 100 points.
6. After all questions are completed, final jeopardy (wager based) ensues.
