Re: The Official TPH Education Thread (POTENTIAL GAME DAY SPOILERS)

Jeopardy doesn't have many traps, TPH. Good trivia doesn't involve trick questions, and most J! clues are good trivia. Yes, it COULD be any large eastern state. But is that LIKELY? No! Broadway is in New York, and I'm sure you know this. If it were somehow New Hampshire or something, I would agree t...

Re: Wednesday, June 14, 2017 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

Hnnnghh. I am not a Wagering Viking but if you're leading going into FJ, get it right, and still lose, something's gone horribly wrong. I'd much rather lose by missing the question than by underbetting.

Re: May 30 2017, Adult Online Contestant Test Discussion

Does anyone have insight as to how much leeway there is for unfinished responses/typos? For example, "Henrietta Lacls" or "black lives matt"? No one knows exactly how much, but my guess is those would probably both be good. I'm hoping there's a lot of leeway for "Cav" since I couldn't finish typing...

Re: What is wrong with Ken Jennings?

I am mystified as to how anyone can take the tweet as a shot as an 11 year old. It's clearly directed at Donnie himself. Crude but not aimed at a kid.

In any event, Ken has a sense of humor that's not for everyone. As of this moment it is not legally required that you follow him on Twitter.

I think I may have scored 40. Missed questions included the J.D. Vance book, the One Direction singer, the Google game, capital of Ukraine, book about events in some town in Alabama.

Harry Styles, I think

Will they take Becky for the Tom Sawyer question? And what the heck is a wingless firefly?

Either that was tough or I wasn't in the right frame of mind. Don't think I got 35.

Would TMNT have been accepted? I came up with it but probably too late to write the whole thing down.

Hot take: Saudi Arabia wasn't that bad a guess if you focused on "citizenry." It's not unreasonable to think Saudi women might not be full citizens.

Re: The Official TPH Education Thread (POTENTIAL GAME DAY SPOILERS)

There's the rub, though. You openly admit you had to take a totally ex-recto guess, with a chance that the response might be something far more obscure. They've Gigi Grazer'd us before, no reason not to believe they'll do it again. You shouldn't have to guess on the top box, either. Yes, it MIGHT b...

I don't think he likes trivia, I think he likes the attention he gets here for not knowing stuff. Otherwise he'd at least try to improve, and he wouldn't say things like this: No guess on FJ! Every word of the clue was completely meaningless to me. I've never seen someone so proud of not knowing stu...

I gotta go Team TPH on this one, that really seemed a "know it or don't" question. But now you know, and isn't that wonderful?

Re: Spoiler and poll about an $800 clue in Tuesday, 2/7/17 game

NYC and I've never heard "Denver boot" in my life. I kinda mumbled "parking boot" but honestly I would just call it a boot.

Thanks for polling this!

Can we poll for Denver boot and poster hometown? I've never heard that term in my life. It's either a parking boot or just a boot.
