pdflatex. It is based on the jj_game.cls class and exerquiz.sty and
eforms.sty packages, written by D. P. Story. The author of the game
can use multichoice questions or fill-in questions. The answer for
fill-in questions is either a mathematical formula or a text string
(see the documentation of exerquiz.sty and \RespBoxMath and
\RespBoxTxt commands to learn more about all facilities). JavaScripts
are written to record the score. If the score is greater than a given
value, a hidden string is shown. The option picture allows to build
the game where the user uncovers parts of a hidden image. User should

jeop­ardy – Build a jeop­ardy game in LaTeX

The jeop­ardy pack­age al­lows to build a jeop­ardy game with pdfLaTeX. It is based on the jj_game class and ex­erquiz pack­age, writ­ten by D. P. Story. The au­thor of the game can use mul­ti­choice ques­tions or fill-in ques­tions. The an­swer for fill-in ques­tions is ei­ther a math­e­mat­i­cal for­mula or text string (see the doc­u­men­ta­tion of ex­erquiz and \Re­spBoxMath and \Re­spBoxTxt com­mands to learn more about the ca­pa­bil­i­ties). JavaScripts are writ­ten to record the score. If the score is greater than a given value, a hid­den string is shown. The user should use the style with some screen pre­sen­ta­tion pack­age, such as web.

The pack­age is dis­tributed with some ex­am­ple games, in­clud­ing both 1- and 2-player games.
