Coryat $41,200 (46 R, 2 W)
DD 3/3
FJ :(

My best Coryat so far this season, I'm pretty sure. Ran 5 categories in DJ!, a few brain farts in 4-letter words kept me from 30/30.

Every clue in that Jeff Goldblum category had me checking my watch. I wish they would just let Alex read all the clues.

Re: Thursday, December 5, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Not in love with this pure trivia, no-TOM Final. It's basically "pick a non-traditional Christmas song". Not sure what prevents it from being "Santa Claus Is Coming To Town" or "Silver Bells" or "Frosty The Snowman" or "Holly Jolly Christmas" or a variety of others. A first edition reading shows th...

Poll request on the Clemson fight song. I went to an ACC school and have been following ACC sports for 20 years, and the only part of that song I know is "C, L, E, M, S, O........... N!" What's the cultural relevance to anyone who didn't go to Clemson? And LSV didn't know it either, which says a lot...

Tough call, but I'd vote no. Right name, wrong language. That would be like saying "Clowns" for "Pagliacci", or perhaps more saliently, "Don John."

Methinks you aren't going to be the only person to say Don Juan.

The "Oh, no!" is my favorite Alexism for a wrong answer. I will say it again: As long at they're not going to leave the name of the category up on the screen, I hate HATE HATE HATE categories like In "Extremis". What made that category extra hard is, your mind gravitates to the X... and none of the...

In the JOSHUA category, would they have taken French & Indian War for Seven Years War? And how should anyone know Petersburg is in Virginia? The French and Indian War (which was my answer too) was the American theater of the Seven Years' War. So it doesn't count. For Petersburg: my strategy for kno...

Coryat 24000 (33 R, 3 W)
DD 1/3
FJ :mrgreen:

The J! and DJ! rounds felt like TOC-level difficulty to me. 33 R is my lowest number in quite a while, I did well on the lower rows of DJ! to partially make up for it. Three tough DDs, too. The contestants didn't seem to have it much easier.

Re: Friday, November 29, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Tried to think of a novel actually set in Britain fitting the clue and couldn't really come up with anything. Even if Ireland was part of the UK at the time, calling Stoker "British" is kind of dirty pool. Yeah, even if I thought of Dracula, Stoker's Irish. Being technically correct, and thus the b...

It's uncanny how average I am among boardies. If I get FJ, it polls above 50%, and if I miss it, it polls below 50%, almost without fail. (Gath being a notable exception that I managed to pull out of my you-know-where)

Re: Long-standing Jeopardy Traditions That We haven't seen in a long time

I have noticed myself a lot less alcohol related categories this season. They seem to have lessened at least a bit the emphasis on academic subjects, or things you can learn from memorizing lists, and have devoted more questions to lifestyle topics. It is one of the four subgroups of questions on t...

Re: Friday, November 29, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Seemed unnecessarily vague for an FJ clue, maybe they thought "battlements" would steer people in the right direction? That has to be the intended TOM; knowing that a "battlement" was part of a castle. I admit that I did not know the term. I focused on "broken", trying to think of characters living...

Ouch.

Coryat 24000 (37R, 5W)
DD 0/3
FJ :(

Not a lot to write home about. Took the Pride and Prejudice and Chrysler Building negbait in Round 1. Thought 1759 = French and Indian War, WRONG. First 0/3 on DDs in a long time, and no idea on FJ. Glad I wasn't on stage for this one.
