Double Jeopardy!

NMAI on Jeopardy 4

This December, the National Museum of the American Indian was a category on Jeopardy!, the quiz show.  It was amazing to watch the contestants strategically avoid the NMAI category.

I guess the other subjects—“Places in the Bible”, “Movie Names”, “The Rat Pack”, “Play Penners,”and “Five-Letter Words”—were more familiar.

The players avoided our category until every other clue was gone, then ran out of time before they could get to the $2000 NMAI question. 

NMAI on Jeopardy 3
Leonda Levchuk and Molly Stephey from the NMAI Public Affairs Office worked with the producers of Jeopardy! to create videotaped clues from the museum on the National Mall. They also signed paperwork swearing that they wouldn’t give away the answers—er, questions—in advance. After the show aired, Leonda and Molly asked the producers to send us a copy of the tape so that we could share it with you. I’ve edited it to get right to the NMAI part.

This is a nice show and realized in different formats by different nations in the world, excellent.
I used to watch this show everyday. It was very entertaining. Sadly, I don't have local channels anymore.

Nice post, thanks. This would turn me into an avid blog reader.

Have a nice day.

Thanks for sharing, I have watch this show many times and although you do learn new things it really makes you feel stupid lol.

I was looking for a Lyricist song writing software online when I saw this blog about Double Jeopardy! Gad, I missed playing this one online. The last time I played this was 8 years ago!

I want to create a blog just like yours and am a newbie on the internet. Where could I get a design like this? Thanks so much.

Good game, the video is fun but is too bad that players did not choose the NMAI category until there was no choice.

It is a shame that the majority of Americans are ignorant of the history of Native Americans. I also think it's true that we are largely unaware of the plight of modern day Native Americans.

Interesting and telling example of this on Jeopardy

It's really good to see they have created this game. And they have helped a few people for this.

NMAI has one of the most extensive collections of Native American arts and artifacts in the world!

Some categorys are much more excepted than other people. And in a game like this you see that in full swing.lots of visitors will not have an opportunity to strengthen on their expertise now that the Resource Center has been dismantled.

Web Design

Great post. I'm glad to see people are still interested in Jeopardy. Thank you for an interesting read.

Nice post, Thanks for sharing!

Good blog, good information, good design! Thank you for this!

Nice post, thanks for sharing!

Thank you very much for your post.
Its pretty interesting. I appreciate your blogs and look forward for your next blog.

This game is very good. It is a good contribution to the knowledge of the history of indigenous peoples. It should be something similar with other groups.

I really like your post hope to read more from you.

I have not yet had the opportunity to visit the National Museum of the American Indian, but just to see the show Jeopardy, go to the museum because I do not want to miss this show, I think I'll go with my family

Jeopardy is one of the few games I love other than Who wants to be a millionaire? It's really good to see they have created this game.

After watching the video, I found the quiz show was really fun and interesting. The NMAI questions are very interesting and challenging. It's obvious that the players avoid the catagory. Anyway, I think the catagory gives contestants and audience knowledge and facts so it's very useful and helpful.


Risk is one of the few activities I like other than Who wants to be a millionaire? It's really great to see they have designed farmville. And they have aided a few persons for this.

IBM's Watson would have done fine with the category!
