Video The Jeopardy! Category Is...a Double Dose of Shakespeare!

Both the regular quiz game and the masters' tournament May 23 episodes ended with Shakespeare categories.

Two recent episodes of Jeopardy! came out with quills a'scribbling—the May 23 episode of regular game play and one of the evening episodes of the current masters' tournament ended with Final Jeopardy! categories about Shakespeare. We're not ashamed to admit that both questions answers had us stumped! (The contestants were, too. There wasn't a single correct answer from any of the six players.)

Put your thinking caps on and see how you measure up against some of America's favorite quiz show's brightest players. In the clip above from the Jeopardy! Masters, the Final Jeopardy! category is "Real People in Shakespeare." The clue reads: "In Shakespeare this man is a rival of Prince Hal; in real life he was older than Hal's father."

Still up for more game play? Try out the Final Jeopardy! from the daily game. The category is "Shakespeare's Characters" and the clue reads: "Both of the names for these two lovers from a Shakespeare play come from Latin words for 'Blessed.'" Watch that clip below.
