An all-time game show classic, Jeopardy! has been entertaining and educating us on our TVs since 1984. Over the thousands of clues given over the years, Upstate New York and its cities and people have found their way onto the board numerous times.

We previously celebrated Schenectady's appearance on the board in 2020, but that's not even close to The Electric City's first time making the show. Thanks to the online J! Archiveit's easy to track all the episodes featuring Upstate New York's rich history.

The region and Jeopardy! have a long history together, with one Upstate city being featured in the show's second-ever episode in 1984 where all three contestants finished with $0. One city in the Capital Region even made it to Final Jeopardy, but you'll have to get to the end of the game to play that. You may find some of the questions easy, but odds are you'll get stumped on some just like the real life contestants when they aired.

Good luck, and remember to answer in the form of a question.
