Ashan's Jeopardy 2004 - Have you got what it takes to Win Big?
It's the computer edition game of the popular t.v show Jeopardy! Idea

The user selects from a menu of 1 player, 2 players, a qualification test, instructions and exit.
In first player mode the first player will play alone by selecting the questions on the board and once he finishes the board he will be transferred to the second round where he faces more harder questions with big prizes!
In 2 players mode it's more cometitive with the buzzer..!
the first player to buzz will select the question and their will be a 'Daily Double' in each round. The rest will be the same as first player mode except you have a buzzer in every question!
The qualification test is to be taken before you go and play the real game to find out whether you are capable of taking the chalenge!

This is a group project for grade 11 computer prgramming so the credit also goes to David And Lakshman!

Features Laughing -
1 player and 2 player modes
20 randomly selected questions per category
more user friendly interface
you can type the answer in anyway you want (lower or upper)
The two window program for easy navigation
and many more......

bugs ( Twisted Evil )-
the buzzer - you can't press any other key other than "a"("A") or "l"("L") for the buzzer or the program will get struck
you can click the gui buttons in the board even after they'are disabled(or hidden)

Features planned (but not included Crying or Very sad ) -
the timer for more competition
computer AI in first player mode
multiple choice questions instead of typing answers...

That's it...enjoy playing jeopardy!!!

Its neat. I like the graphics. The only thing I didnt like are the answers to the questions. I took a screenshot for an example:

making multiple choice would be great. it would save me from wanting to kill the computer for saying that "prairie pronvinces is wrong, the correct answer is the prairie provinces". Evil or Very Mad or perhaps make multiple answers for the questions, ie one answer without the infront of it, one with the in front.
I noticed some spelling errors / typos in your answers. well, two.
