Gameplay[ edit ] Three contestants each take their place behind a lectern, with the returning champion occupying the leftmost lectern from the viewer's perspective. The contestants compete in a quiz game comprising three rounds: First two rounds[ edit ] The layout of the Jeopardy!
On the original Jeopardy! The underlying clue is revealed and read aloud by the host, after which any contestant may ring-in using a hand-held signaling device. The first contestant to ring-in successfully is prompted to provide a response to the clue, phrased in the form of a question.
If the contestant responds correctly, the clue's dollar value is added to the contestant's score, and they may select a new clue from the board. An incorrect response, or a failure to respond within five seconds, deducts the clue's value from the contestant's score and allows the other contestants the opportunity to ring-in and respond.
Contestants are not required to do so unless the category requires clues to be taken in order; the "Forrest Bounce," a strategy in which contestants randomly pick clues to confuse opponents, has been used successfully by Arthur Chu and the strategy's namesake Chuck Forrestdespite Trebek noting that the strategy not only annoys him but staffers as well, since it also disrupts the rhythm that develops when revealing the clues and increases the potential for error.

In pre episodes, a buzzer would sound when a contestant signaled; according to Trebek, the buzzer was eliminated because it was "distracting to the viewers" and sometimes presented a problem when contestants rang in while Trebek was still reading the clue.

In the Double Jeopardy! If, after a game is over, a ruling change is made that would have significantly altered the outcome of the game, the affected contestant s are invited back to compete on a future show.
On at least one episode hosted by Art Fleming, all three contestants finished Double Jeopardy! At the end of the Double Jeopardy! Contestants write their wagers using a light pen to write on an electronic display on their lectern. The contestants have 30 seconds to write their responses on the electronic display, while the show's iconic "Think!
In the event that either the display or the pen malfunctions, contestants can use an index card and a marker to manually write their response and wager. Visually impaired or blind contestants use a Braille keyboard to type in a wager and response.
Contestants' responses are revealed in order of their pre-Final Jeopardy! If there is a tie for second place, consolation prizes are awarded based on the scores going into the Final Jeopardy!
