How To Create Jeopardy Game In Google Slides

Bring the excitement of a classic quiz show into your classroom or home with Google Slides. Creating your own Jeopardy game can be a fun, easy way to review for tests, challenge student comprehension, and promote engagement. Here’s a step by step guide to creating a Jeopardy game using Google Slides.

Step 1: Open a New Google Slides Document

Begin by going to Google Slides and creating a new presentation.

Step 2: Set Up Your Categories

The first slide will be your game board. Traditionally, Jeopardy has five categories, but you can have as many or few as you like. Write each category title in a separate text box at the top of the slide.

Step 3: Create Your Questions and Answers

Under each category, create five more text boxes. These will link to the slides containing the questions and answers for each category. The content of these text boxes should correspond to the point value of each question (e.g., “100”, “200”, “300”, “400”, “500”).

Step 4: Link to Question Slides

Next, create a new slide for each question. Write the question and answer on this slide. Then, go back to the game board slide and link each point value text box to its corresponding question slide. To do this, highlight the text box, click on the “Insert link” icon in the toolbar, and select “Slides in this presentation”. Then, choose the slide with the corresponding question from the dropdown menu.

Step 5: Link Back to the Game Board

On each question slide, create a text box or shape that will serve as a “Back to Board” button. Then, link this object back to the game board slide following the same method as in Step 4.

Step 6: Hide the Answer

To make the game more challenging, you can hide the answer until a button is clicked. Simply create a new text box or shape, write “Click for answer” in it, and place it over the answer text box. Then, set this object’s link to “None” and its action to “Disappear”.

    <strong>Google Apps Script:</strong>

    function hideAnswer() {
    var slide = SlidesApp.getActivePresentation().getSlides[0];
    var shapes = slide.getShapes();
    for (var i = 0; i &lt; shapes.length; i++) {
        if (shapes[i].getText().asString() == "Click for answer") {

Step 7: Customize and Play!

Finally, add some personal touches to your game by customizing the design of your slides and playing some fun music. Your Jeopardy game is now ready to play! We hope you have a blast engaging and learning with this classic game, now accessible right from Google Slides.
