Here’s the October 2017 General Conference Jeopardy! I don’t know about you but General Conference seemed to be extra special this past weekend. There were so many wonderful messages of following the Savior’s example to serve and lift, to defend the family, to love all of God’s children, and more. We mourn the passing of Elder Robert D. Hales and are grateful for his last message back in April on becoming disciples of Jesus Christ.
This version includes every single speaker from the four general sessions on Saturday and Sunday. Download the October 2017 General Conference Jeopardy game at the bottom of this post.
Each team must have a copy of the scriptures! The Doctrinal Mastery category specifically covers Book of Mormon doctrinal mastery scriptures quoted in General Conference.
Open the game in PowerPoint Viewer. Depending on your version of PowerPoint you will be asked if you want to enable macros. Yes, you do! You might also have to push “play” in the upper right of your screen again depending on your version of PowerPoint.
Click through the first screen to get to the game board. A student picks a category and a dollar amount. You click on that dollar amount and it will take you to the question. Another click will take you to the answer. THEN click on the green triangle at the bottom of the answer slide and it will take you back to the game board. Hopefully the question previously picked will now be dark and only the “unasked” questions will be highlighted. When you finish Round 1 you will click on the Round 2 box and repeat as above. When you finish round 2 you will then click on Final Jeopardy.
You will need to keep score as the powerpoint won’t do that.

For those who do not have powerpoint to play the game here is a pdf file with all the categories and questions. Create the game board on a chalkboard or white board and erase the dollar amounts as each question is asked. The first categories are: Lists Given, Stories Told, Doctrinal Mastery, General Authorities, and It’s in the Scriptures. THe categories for Double Jeopardy are What Should We Do, What is the Subject, Funny Thing, What Did They Say, and Grab Bag (Miscellaneous)
