Airline Jeopardy!

Sat Apr 30, 2011 1:15 am

Hey all. I made this "Airline Jeopardy!" game online and thought I'd share it with you, as it's a fun little time waster.

http://jeopardylabs.com/done/airline-jeopardy

There's a few stumpers in there, but overall, you guys should win a lot of (fake) cash!  

See how you do and let me know your score. And if you've got some time, go to Jeopardylabs' home page and make an "Airline Jeopardy!" game of your own.

Good luck!

$2500  

Got all the airport IATA codes,

got the "US Airways" question wrong. I skipped the rest as I didn't want to lose my money  

All of the 400 questions I skipped except for the IATA code and the 200/300 question for "Odds and Ends"

I think it was this week, Jeopardy had a category "Airline Lingos" and a while ago there was "Airline Codes" Oh how great would it be if the real jeopardy was all airlines, airports and geography   
It's a cultural thing.

$3200.

I can't believe I said "MCO" for Kansas City Int'l......

Other than that, I got two others wrong, I think, and didn't answer probably 5 of them.
I'm watching Jeopardy. The category is worst Madonna songs. "This one from 1987 is terrible".

Thanks for all the feedback. I'm thrilled that you guys are enjoying it -- and doing so well!!!

I'm sorry that the first page is kind of confusing. This is the proper link: http://jeopardylabs.com/play/airline-jeopardy It will take you directly to the game.

And before you play, you gotta have the "This is Jeopardy!" intro http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qXpMTuh4zyU

I definitely will. I wasn't sure if it would get a lot of participants, but the response so far is great. Maybe I'll turn it into a regular thing? (Kind of like the self-pic and "would you hit it?" threads    )

I hope I don't sound stupid, but is there a way to actually input answers, or do we just sort of keep track of how we're doing ourselves?

Quoting san747 (Reply 11):

I should have given instructions first, so I apologize. To see if you're answer (well, your question, really) is right, select "Correct Response." If you are correct, select the green '+' button and it will be added to your score. If your response is incorrect, select the red '-' button and the dollar amount will be subtracted from your score.

Nobody is policing the contestants, so it's up to you to be honest with your scorekeeping!
