This package has been updated at tug.ctan.org and should soon be at your local mirror. Thanks, Jim Hefferon Saint Michael's College ....................................................................... The following information was provided by our fellow contributor: Name of contribution: jeopardy.sty - fixed example with babel/pdfscreen issue Author's name: Robert Marik Location on CTAN: /macros/latex/contrib/jeopardy/ Summary description: Fix for two of the examples - babel is not compatible with pdfscreen License type: lppl Announcement text:
This update fixes problem reported on comp.text.tex in January. The package pdfscreen (I use 1.5) is not compatible with babel and it has to be modified slightly to work well (there are problems with catcode of @ when creating table of contents in panel). I've removed babel from example files written in English and these files (game2.tex, game2a.tex) should compile fine now. For two remaining czech demo files (game3.tex, jeopardy-CZ.tex) you still need the fixed pdfscreen.

jeopardy – Build a jeopardy game in

The jeopardy package allows to build a jeopardy game with pdf. 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.
