You're correct that "World of Warcraft" was in fact the name of a Jeopardy category, though you're mistaken about the actual content of said related questions.I happened to be watching (yesterday, I think) when the category was used - it was one of many clever 'video game' related categories that actually were not about the game titles themselves. For example, there was 'Guitar Hero', which had questions about famous guitarists. 'World of Warcraft' contained questions/answers about real-life warfare and weapons (for example, one asked what the ammunition for crossbows was called, etc).

Agreed. I got excited when I saw the category as well, but it wasn't about the game at all.Mike, really - do you have any journalism training? As Editor, you should be editing that section out (strike through?).

In addition, the category "Rock Band" was, in fact, about rocks. There WAS one video game related category in that episode however, aptly named "video games"
