Announcement text: 
The jeopardy package allows to build a jeopardy game with pdfLaTeX. It 
is based on the jj_game class and exerquiz package, written by D. P. 
Story.  The author of the game can use multichoice questions or fill-in 
questions.  The answer for fill-in questions is either a mathematical 
formula or text string (see the documentation of exerquiz and 
\RespBoxMath and \RespBoxTxt commands to learn more about the
capabilities).  JavaScripts are written to record the score.  If the 
score is greater than a given value, a hidden string is shown.  The 
user should use the style with some screen presentation package, such 
as web or pdfscreen.

For the new version of jeopardy package, a new option picture has been 
added.  This option allows to build game where the user (student) answers 
questions and uncovers (after a correct answer) parts of hidden picture.
The new option is demonstrated in game1a.pdf, game2a.pdf and game4.pdf
