How to Create a Jeopardy Game in PowerPoint 2010

Usually when we do a PowerPoint presentation, the presenter will control everything; the audiences just sit there listening. The only interaction may be the Q & A parts. A little boring, huh? Making a Jeopardy game using PowerPoint can be a fun way, ask your audiences to join and answer the questions. You can download the Jeopardy game PowerPoint templates online and fill in with your own words, pictures and colors. However, if you know how to create your own Jeopardy game using PowerPoint, that would be perfect. Today’s tutorial will show you how to create a Jeopardy game in PowerPoint 2010.


Open PowerPoint 2010 and create a blank slide and choose a color you like as the background. Now click “Insert” > “Table” and select a 5 x 6 table size, for example.

You know, in a Jeopardy game, when a question is answered by someone, it will be removed from the board. So you need to make the “Movies – 100” invisible, like it has been removed. How to make it? Change the color of “Followed Hyperlinks” to the same color of the Jeopardy background.

Go to the “Design” tab, select “Colors” and choose “Create New Them Colors…”.
