Favorite players from the past 30 years will come back to do battle once again, but there's a twist. (We all like twists, right?) One tournament contestant per decade will be chosen by fans, who will be able to vote online via the Jeopardy! website or through social media. We'll have more details on how that all works when it gets closer to voting time. I think we can all name lots of former contestants who will be shoo-ins for this tournament though -- I wonder if Watson will also make an appearance?
In addition to the Battle of the Decades there will be lots of the traditional tourneys, including the Teacher's Tournament, College Championship, and the Teen Tournament. We've already mentioned the new and more colorful set, and fans can look forward to an amazing sweepstakes as well.
There's lots to get excited about on this coming season of Jeopardy!, so don't forget to tune in for the season premiere on September 16th.
