Welcome to Hacker Jeopardy

Hacker Jeopardy turns 25 this year, and it’s going to be HUUUGE!  For our Silver Anniversary, we’re conducted qualifying rounds around the world and inviting the winners.  Next stop is HOU.SEC.CON!  Three teams of three will compete in this hilarious parody game, with additional points awarded for beer consumed.  Anything can happen on stage (we even had a marriage proposal at DEFCON!) — you just gotta be there (our sponsors give away AWESOME swag.)  Adult-themed, this show is not for minors and emotionally sensitive persons.  We’re offended if you’re not offended.  Be there.  Aloha!

  • Teams consist of 3 people, no more, no less
  • Contestants must be 18 or older, 21 to consume alcohol
  • WE CARD FOR ALCOHOL! No exceptions, this is mandated by the hotel
  • If you don’t have a valid ID, you may not consume alcohol
  • If you try to pass off a fake ID, your entire team is disqualified
  • If your team is called, you must have all members present. If they aren’t, you’re out that round
  • Points are awarded for answering questions right, as well as 100 points for every beer FULLY consumed by the beginning of Final Jeopardy
  • Failing a daily double will turn your beer into a warm N/A beer, which you must finish to resume drinking (no points are awarded for these)
  • You may wager any amount you have on a Daily Double. If you have less than $500, you may still wager $500
  • Humperdink Rule: If you puke before the game is over, you lose all beer points
  • The Ref has the final say over correctness of an answer. No arguing – that’s the end of it
  • All results are final. Sometimes we mess it up, and if we do, we’re sorry, but there are no appeals
  • Contestants and audience members are expected to behave. If you can’t, you will be told to leave. If you are a player, your team may have to forfeit
