Mini Jane Austen Jeopardy


It's been such a long time since I had the pleasure of hosting a game at Elegance of Fashion. So this mini-game will be based off of Jeopardy, but it will only be one Jeopardy round.

Rules:
1. Answer as many questions as you can. You get points for the questions you answer right, but you will get deducted points for answering a question incorrectly. If you do not know an answer, it is in your best interest to leave the answer blank.
2. You have only one opportunity to answer a question correctly. If you decide to answer a question that you left blank, you may submit answers to those questions for additional points.
3. Unlike real Jeopardy, I will be lenient if you do not put the answer in the form of a question. Though please try to phrase your answer in the form of a question.
4. The winner will be rewarded with a signature banner and a button for their blog. What do I mean by a signature banner? Instead of signing your name at the bottom of each post in text, you can put a banner that has your name and a picture from a period drama. There will also be two runner-ups that will receive a button for their blog.

Submission
Submit your answers by category (so list all the first category questions with each other and so on). At the end, list a character/period drama that you would like for your signature banner and button should you win (the signature banner and button can have two different period dramas/characters). If you do not list any character or period drama, I will pick one for you. Scroll down to the end of this post for a sample answer submission; it doesn't have to be exact, but similar to it.

Submit Your Answers by September 30th, 12:00 PM!

Good Luck!

  1. Oooh, this is a great idea! I have one question before I submit my answers, though: I don't really get about the character mashups. I know the actors/actresses who play the different characters, but I'm not sure what I'm supposed to answer. Could you clarify? Thanks! :)

    1. The answer should be a period drama. So, for example, I could say, "Estella Havisham's father is Mr. Meagles, who marries Lady Ludlow." and the answer would be, "What is Wives and Daughters?" since Justine Waddell (Estella in Great Expectations) was Molly Gibson, whose father was Mr. Gibson (Bill Patterson or Mr. Meagles in Little Dorrit), who married Hyacinth Kirkpatrick (Francesca Annis or Lady Ludlow in Cranford). If you're still confused, let me know and I'll explain more.
