Jeopardy-like game

Jeopardy-like game:  This one might build on the flash card activity, using material in the flash cards, or stand-alone. Create a digital (e.g. PowerPoint) or low-tech (e.g. cardboard and paper) board with five categories. Under each category are five questions (or answers, like in the TV game show) related to the course and organized by point values. Students (perhaps in teams for some added competition) choose a question (or answer) and the first team to respond correctly gets the points. If they are wrong, points are subtracted. This game works really well for fact-based memory and recall, and the fast pace appeals to students.
