|1990 was the year that America's best known board game, Monopoly, was being developed into a primetime game show, by Merv Griffin. You might ask yourself why I mention this in a review of Super Jeopardy!, well it works like this. Merv tried to sell the format of Monopoly to the ABC network, but they didn't like it. However, ABC showed GREAT interest in doing Jeopardy!, so Merv, being the shrewd business man that he is, decided to make a deal, ABC could a have a special Tournament of Champions on ABC, IF they bought Monopoly. ABC did and from thjis idea, came 1990's Super Jeopardy tournament which aired in the summer of 1990. Thise game allows, you, the humble consumer the oppertunity to take part in the $250,000 Champion of Champions tourney. Which was won by Bruce Seymour.
This shows you what lengths Merv Griffin will go to to Sell a new show, most people wouldn't btoher to bundle a package like the SJ! tournament to sell a at best mediocre game show. In case you are wondering, ""Monopoly"" with Mike Reilly, was cancelled after thirteen weeks. That's Showbiz.

|God this game is awful. I mean, first of all, the questions are ridiculously easy. Does anybody know the capital of new york? And what the hell is with the point values? A 2200 point question? I mean honestly, this game blow chunks. Do not, I repeat do not download this game. I could go on but it is not worth my time to review this godawful peice of crap. Bebe's kids would be an improvement from this. If you want a good Jeopardy game download JEOPARDY by gametek.
