How does Jeopardy! work?

The game involves presenting contestants with general knowledge clues in the form of answers, to which they must respond with the correct question. The show is divided into three rounds: Jeopardy, Double Jeopardy, and Final Jeopardy. In the first two rounds, contestants select from a board of categories, each containing a series of clues with increasing point values.

They earn points for correct responses but lose points for incorrect ones. Double Jeopardy features higher stakes with doubled point values. The final round, Final Jeopardy, involves a single clue where contestants wager a portion of their earned points before seeing the clue.

In the new UK version, the format will allow participants to play an extra round compared to the original show, increasing the stakes for the players.
