Game-show fans and general knowledge buffs, get ready—Jeopardy! is coming to Washington April 20 and 21 for “Power Players Week,” a series of five special episodes challenging 15 influential Washingtonians on their general knowledge skills. This is the third time the show’s hosted Power Players Week—past contestants have included US senator Al Franken, journalist Bob Woodward, and former White House press secretary Ari Fleischer.

Applications for free tickets to the tapings at DAR Constitution Hall are available starting today at area branches of My Eye Dr and Passport Auto. Host Alex Trebek promises, “The Power Players show will not only be incredibly entertaining to watch, but also enlightening.” But rest assured there are no improper campaign finance violations on the table—the contestants will be competing for a $50,000 donation to the charity of their choice.
