An application will be developed that allows up to four users to play “Wheel of Jeopardy” with each other in a fun and enjoyable atmosphere. The game will consist of a normal Jeopardy board with six categories and five point values for each category as well as a wheel with corresponding areas for each of the categories on the board. A player spins the wheel and is asked a question based on the section where the wheel lands. If the player answers correctly, then points are awarded and the player spins the wheel again. At the end of the game the player with the most points wins.
The wheel will consist of 24 sections. Each category on the board has three sections of the wheel. When a player lands on one of these sections, the next question from that section on the board is asked and the player only has 30 seconds to answer. If the answer is correct, the corresponding point value is added to the player’s score and the spinning process is repeated. If the answer is incorrect, the corresponding point value is deducted from the score and the turn is lost. If the time expires before the player answers, no points are awarded or deducted. If the player lands on a section of the wheel for which there are no more questions, the player must spin again.
In addition to the sections of the wheel that represent categories on the board, there will be one “lose turn” section which will cause a player to simply lose their turn. There will be one “free turn” section which will allow the player to spin again even after landing on a “lose turn” section. There will also be a “bankrupt” section which will cause a player to lose all of their points for the current round. One “player’s choice” section allows the player to pick the section for which they would like to answer a question. Another section called “opponents’ choice” will let the player’s opponents pick the category on the board. Lastly, there will be a “spin again” section that allows the player to simply spin the wheel again.
The game consists of two rounds where points are added up independently of the other round. In the second round, the point values on the board are doubled. Each round ends when either all the questions have been asked or the wheel has been spun 50 times.
