Breaking News: It’s Official, No More Ties


In a post at today, the show confirmed what we have long suspected: that tie games in regular play will be settled by a tiebreaker.

As the article says:

There can only be one winner. This has long been the case in tournament play and was recently adapted into regular game play. A tie at the end of Final Jeopardy! sends the game into a tie-breaker clue.

This confirms the rule change that was broken on our #JeopardyLivePanel over a year ago.

Meanwhile, the article itself is a pretty good read, as it also describes what happens if there is no winner, a tie for a wildcard spot, and if nobody makes it to Final Jeopardy!
