In a post at Jeopardy.com 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!
