How To Make A Jeopardy Game In Google Slides

Have you ever wanted to host your own Jeopardy game? With Google Slides, you can create an interactive, fun, and educational Jeopardy game for any occasion. This tutorial will guide you step-by-step on how to create a Jeopardy game using Google Slides.

Step 1: Open Google Slides

To begin, you need to first have a Google account. If you don’t have one, go ahead and create one. Once you have your account set up, navigate to the Google Slides homepage and click on the ‘+’ button to create a new blank presentation.

Step 2: Design the Game Board

For your Jeopardy game, the first slide will serve as the game board. It will have five categories, each with five questions of increasing difficulty. You can create this layout using the Table feature in Google Slides.

Select the ‘Table’ option from the ‘Insert’ menu. Then choose a 6×6 table. The top row will be used for category names and the remaining rows for different point values.

Step 3: Create Question and Answer Slides

For each question, you’ll need to create two slides: one for the question and one for the answer. Remember, in Jeopardy, the players first see the answer and then they provide the question.

Repeat this process until you have slides for all your questions and answers.

Step 4: Link Each Cell to the Corresponding Slide

To make your game interactive, you need to link each cell of your game board to the corresponding question slide. Here’s how:

  • Select the cell, go to Insert -> Link (or use the shortcut Cmd+K on Mac or Ctrl+K on Windows)
  • In the Link dialog box, select Slides in this presentation
  • Choose the slide that you want to link to the cell
  • Click on Apply

Step 5: Add a ‘Home’ Button to Each Slide

This will make it easier for players to navigate back to the main game board from any question or answer slide. To do this:

  • Insert any shape (such as a circle or rectangle) onto the slide
  • Then, using the same steps you used to link cells to slides, link the shape to the game board slide

Step 6: Play the Game

Once you’ve completed all the steps above, your Jeopardy game should be ready to play. To start the game, go to ‘Present’ mode and navigate through the slides by clicking on the linked cells and ‘Home’ buttons.


Google Slides is a powerful tool that can be used for more than just presentations. By following these steps, you can create your own interactive Jeopardy game for classroom learning, business training, or just for fun. Happy gaming!
