If you’re thinking of a fun way to spice up your bridal shower you definitely should consider Bridal Shower Jeopardy.
Bridal shower Jeopardy is similar to the famous game show it’s named after.
Questions are grouped into categories and tied to different points depending on their difficulty level.
Its uniqueness lies in the questions that the host will ask.
To adapt to the occasion, bridal shower jeopardy questions are centered around the couple, their interests, and the wedding.
In this post, we’ll give you the scoop on everything you need to know to organize a bridal shower jeopardy.
Organizing A Bridal Shower Jeopardy
For a successful bridal shower jeopardy, you’ll need:
- A Bridal Jeopardy Game Board: the game board will hold the questions and the answer. You can decide to make one, buy one, or go digital.
- Buzzers: You can buy a mechanical buzzer or have each team download one on their phone.
- Bridal Shower Jeopardy Questions: You’ll need a bunch of questions broken down into different categories. Examples of categories you could use are:
- The bride
- The groom
- The couple’s relationship
- The wedding
To avoid any hiccups, confirm the answers to personal questions from the bride and groom before the event.
- A Prize: The prize doesn’t have to be overly expensive. You could go for something that has sentimental value like a sash or crown. Another option is a small gift pack of goodies like chocolates and sweets.
How To Play Bridal Shower Jeopardy
Before the guests arrive, collate the questions, divide them into categories and attach points to each question.
The points usually range from 100 to 500, with 100-point questions being the easiest and 500-point questions being the toughest.
When it’s time for the game, divide the guests into teams and give each team a buzzer. You can have more than two teams depending on your number of guests.
Decide which team goes first by tossing a coin or rolling dice.
The playing team will choose a category and question based on the points.
If they get the answer correct, they get the point associated with the question; if they don’t, whichever team gets the answer gets the points.
You can ask the final Jeopardy question (usually the most challenging question) once you’ve exhausted all the questions on the board.
In the final Jeopardy round, each team bets a portion or all of their total points.
The facilitator will add the staked amount to their current points if the answer is correct. But, if their answer is wrong, they’ll lose the points.
Once each team has decided how many points they’re betting, the question is read out, and every team provides its answer.
The teams with correct answers add the extra points, while those who fail the answer lose the points they staked.
As with most games, the team with the highest number of points is declared the winner.
