How to Play Jeopardy with Alexa

Nowadays, Alexa is more than just a household too. She’s a friend!

By learning the necessary command phrases, you can enable Alexa to play Jeopardy with you and your friends, providing for a fun and enjoyable time on any game night. This guide will show you exactly how to access and how to use these command phrases.

A New and Fun Way to Play Jeopardy

Instead of settling for the typical board games that you play every game night, try out Alexa’s Jeopardy features. These can be a great way to shake up the routine and add a bit of much-needed spice to your game nights.

Activating Alexa’s Jeopardy

Start with the command phrase, “Alexa, open Jeopardy.” This will begin the game. If you’d like to play Teen Jeopardy or Sports Jeopardy, simply say, “Alexa, open Teen Jeopardy” or “Alexa, open Sports Jeopardy.”

Alexa will then begin by reading the category and the answer. She will allow you roughly ten seconds to provide your response, but make sure to follow the rules of Jeopardy and answer in a question! Otherwise, your answer will not be considered correct.

You can even have Alexa play with the same questions from official Jeopardy games!


Just one simple command phrase, “Alexa, open Jeopardy,” is all it takes to activate Alexa’s Jeopardy functions. It’s important to note that the game is not the same for everybody. Some questions require you to be Amazon Prime members in order to have access to them.
