Watch “Jeopardy!” when it airs, and play along with the night’s contestants. Then, head on over to Jeopardy.com for a corresponding J!6 round. Each J!6 offering includes six categories from that night’s episode, then moves onto “Final J!”
For each category of J!6, six seconds goes on the clock. “Jeopardy!” hopefuls then have these six seconds to select the correct answer before the game automatically moves onto the next category.
In addition, fans can create a MyJeopardy account to keep track of their scores and overall performance. Jeopardy.com also allows for sharing scores on social media to “foster a little competitive spirit.”
And if that’s not enough to win you over, each round of J!6 begins with classic narration from late, great host – Alex Trebek.
