    I'd wish you luck but my wife got the same invite.

    Best of luck to Mrs. Hoosier Red too! I'm still mad that I forgot about the test.

    I took it last night and thought it was pretty easy, for the most part. And if I thought it was easy, I expect that actual smart people will think it's a cakewalk.

    Oh man, thanks so much for bringing this up, because I had forgotten to sign up....and it looks like they've changed it from years past so I can still take it tomorrow along with the West Coast people.

    Re: Jeopardy Test

    I can't, because I passed last year and went to an audition. At this point odds are that I won't be called, but I still have a few months. I did well at the auditions, both on the second test and in the mock game, but I forgot to call the next question a couple of times, which I've heard is a big deal.

    I did not do well. If I got 30 I'd be shocked.

    Re: Jeopardy Test

    I just signed up. I MIGHT be able to do it. We play trivia on Thursday nights and get home right around 10 which is when the test is.

    Ironically, one of the guys on my team was on Jeopardy 3 times about 20(?) years ago. Won the first 2 and lost the third.

    You have to take the test and be invited to auditions (I've been invited twice--couldn't make it the first time.) They also have tryouts in LA, but I understand they're for local emergency fill-ins.
