The show also uses social media to interact with its robust fan base from time to time. “Jeopardy!” took to social media just yesterday (Tuesday) to engage their fans and test their brain skills. The post asks social media users to identify the correct answers to clues dealing with Sci-Fi and fantasy publications.

“Take your best guess at what you will find in the Sci-Fi and Fantasy section,” the post says in a challenge to ‘Jeopardy!’ fans.

“‘The Tributes’ are part one of this 2008 book by Suzanne Collins,” the clue states.

“What are The Hunger Games?” is the correct response to the clue.

Another clue contained within the post asks “Jeopardy!” fans to name the only graphic novel to appear in a ranking of top novels.

“The only graphic novel on Time Magazine’s list of 100 best novels of all time was the one featuring Rorschach,” the clue states.

There are several other clues in the “Jeopardy!” post to challenge your wits. Check out the Instagram link above and see if you can solve them all.

Numerous fans tried their luck at guessing the right answers to the clues with several coming up with the correct answers.

While active on social media, “Jeopardy’s” long-running game show is also doing well despite the passing of its longtime host. After a lengthy battle with stage 4 pancreatic cancer, Alex Trebek passed away late last year at the age of 80.

Since Trebek’s death, “Jeopardy!” is utilizing celebrities to serve as guest hosts of the show. Former contestant and champion Ken Jennings was the first to be called upon as guest host. Jennings, a favorite among “Jeopardy!” fans, has earned the highest marks of any guest host to date.

Journalist and television news anchor Savannah Guthrie currently stands behind the lectern where Trebek once stood. She will wrap up her “Jeopardy!” tenure with her final episode coming this Friday.
