The First-Ever Mac Jeopardy Questions & Answers Contest
We need a lot of answers and questions to pull of three or more games of Mac Jeopardy, so we've put out a call for help from Mac users around the world. If you're reading this because you'll be attending the show, ignore this contest part. :)
If you've got some good trivia knowledge, we invite you to help us out. Please submit your trivia in Jeopardy game format: answer, then question. Be sure to cite your source so we can verify the fact. If we can't verify it we can't use it. Email Bruce to submit your trivia.
and then the game...
About the Game

Contestants will be selected from the audience.
(Please don't ask to be selected.)
This event is being created by and produced in part by Apple Consultant Bruce Brown. (Thank you, Bruce, for this fantastic contribution.)

We will be using LearningWare's hardware and Gameshow Pro software to create and run our game. We were working hard to put together our games and even build our own lockout buzzers. With LearningWare's game software and buzzer systems, that part is all done for us now.
