Re: Monday, May 13, 2013 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

I thought that many clues were overvalued, like "awesome" at $1600, the wheel at $2000, and all the "two animals" clues.

Nice comeback by Monica at the end of DJ.
But the FJ! wager... I don't think $11000 will be enough for a wild card :(

Surprised that Hamlet was a triple stumper.

Re: Friday, February 8, 2013 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

I'm guessing that Emily bet only $6000 because she thought "hey, if I don't beg big, and either one of the other two players get FJ wrong , then I will be guaranteed a second place!"

FJ was an instaget for me: "children"+ "island"+"nightmare-- what else can it possibly be?

Why did David make such a large wager? Was he that confident about the category? :?

I have a bad feeling that David's winning streak is going to be ended by Margaret today.

Re: Monday, June 18, 2012 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOILERS)

Losing by a dollar isn't frustrating in that situation, it's almost expected. A frustrating loss is when you get FJ right but only bet enough to cover the leader if he misses while making his ideal cover bet, but you come up short when it turns out he did actually offer you the tie, finishing with ...

I instantly came up with Sherlock Holmes and Dr Watson, since those are the only literary characters from London that I know. :oops:

Re: Monday, June 4, 2012 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOILERS)

I instantly guessed South Africa for FJ!, as I knew I wouldn't be able to think of anything else. Also, if I were Rachel I would have bet $0 or $1, so that I could win/tie as long as Claudia got it wrong (assuming that she made the MSB). And how many games did Claudia win in total? I didn't get to s...

Bamaman wrote:I missed FJ, said guerrilla. To make things worse, my wife got it right.

I suppose the cities mentioned would lead you to Baja, but I also saw Mexico and went to Yucatan.
I got guerrilla as well, as that's the only word I could think of. :/

Maybe that was because I only watched DJ!?

As a fan of Agatha Christie, I am ashamed that I could only come up with "Murder on the Nile."
I even read the book before... :(

"Quadratic equation" was a triple stumper? :(
And I felt that Margaret Atwood was overvalued at $2000.

Re: Friday, May 18, 2012 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOILERS)

It does mystify-- why should all these reasonably bright people do poorly on relatively easy questions? I have my theories: 1) Performance anxiety. They have reputations to uphold, fragile egos, so even more than the average J player, they feel internal pressure to come off well. That state of mind...

Re: Wednesday, May 9, 2012 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOILERS)

FJ! was an instaget, but I couldn't remeber the spelling of the first name. Would "Who is Collins?" have been a correct response?

Also, what happened at start of the DJ round? Why did they give Kevin $200 back?

Gabriela's overwager costed her a semifinals spot, and at least $5000. Too bad, because I was actually wishing for her to advance. :(
