What is JOTTeopardy?
JOTTeopardy is like Jeopardy on alcohol, like an academic drinkathlon. JOTT = Jimmy's Old Town Tavern.
7:00-9:00 P.M. = Contestant Qualifying Time - 3 Sheet Quizzes passed out to the entire bar. Players can play individually or in a team. Each person or team completes the quiz, someone is chosen to represent, their name is signed on the quiz then submitted to be graded. The 3 chosen ones who score highest on the 3 quizzes become contestants in the live game of JOTTeopardy starting at 9:00.
9:00-10:00 P.M. = JOTTeopardy Live Game Show w/ host Jimmy. Contestants choose a point valued Answer, from 10 to 50 points, from 5 different categories on the giant game board display, Jimmy reads the Answer and is looking for the Question. Questions get harder as the points get higher. Rules:
1)After BUZZING in, contestants have 7 seconds to answer the Question, during that 7 seconds anyone from the bar can shout out the answer to them.
2) Contestants must answer in the form of a Question, Who is?, What is?, etc. Virgin contestants get one mulligan on this rule.
3) Contestants DO NOT lose points for wrong answers.
4) All contestants get one free drink after everyone has scored.
5) Final JOTTEopardy - Contestants are given the final answer category then wager based on their total score. Then they are given the Question and have 90 seconds to write their Answer on another card. Contestants are on their own on this one, no help from the peanut gallery and no peeking.
Don't forget to "Answer in the form of a question!". 1st prize = $25, 2nd prize = $10, 3rd prize = $5. Score in the top 3 in the 12 week cycle to be in Championship JOTTeopardy and a chance to win $175 and a framed Certificate of Trivial Intelligence.
10:00 P.M. = DJ Dancing w/ DJ EQ
