Hi this looks a very good game can't wait to try it...we play pictionary on the white board we have two teams and my colleague and i do all the drawing, this is really fun as we can't draw.

I can relate to this! It's even more fun when you can't draw very well!

LOVED the Jeaopardy game!!! It went over very well with our folks and thank you for taking the time to create it. I am wondering if there are more questions coming? I can create my own but kind of fun to get someone else's perspective. Thanks! :)

Yesterday we used the whiteboard, didn't get a great reception to start with.
I wrote my name (Donna) down and asked what the first thing starting with D that came into their mind and when we completed my name I read it out as a little story.
The residents and volunteers and a family member all lauged and then thay all wanted to see what story would come out of there names.
Thankyou for the great idea it was a such an interactive activity.

Jeopardy looks like it could be great fun but I can't work out how to play it! Do you need to be familiar with it as a TV game show or am I just not understanding the instructions?! Any help much appreciated. Thanks!

Hi Amy, I guess it would be very helpful if you could watch a few episodes of the TV series ‘Jeopardy.’ You could also find someone acquainted with the game to go through with you. It is not difficult. Meanwhile, you can just use the game as a Quiz.
Heather 25th Dec 2018 Therapeutic Recreation Director
We do Jeopardy like this at our facility. We have trivia books that we take questions from as they are more appropriate for our mental status than regular Jeopardy. Most trivia books are categorized.

Kimberly 13th Mar 2018 Activity Director
Great whiteboard games.
We use a white board a lot in our place. Our residents also like easy versions of Pictionary type games as well. These drawing games can be themed around holidays as well.
Michelle 13th Mar 2018 Diversional Therapist
