300 is bad history, but made this FJ easy.

Re: Tuesday, June 11, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

The FJ! clue was an embarrassment for me as I spent the break working off LANDMARKS to never once consider anything outside the U.S. during the several minutes. Fortunately, the reveal of the clue made it easy to switch gears to match the contestants. Kinda funny, I was thinking how American-centri...

Re: Quick Rules Q

I've watched the show for many years, and I have a quick rules Q, and sorry if it may sound dumb: If there is a three-way tie at the start of Double Jeopardy!, then who gets to go first? The player closest to Alex, or do they draw numbers (I know that historically, for a two-way tie at the start of...

Re: Monday, June 3, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I just hate he had to lose when he was so close to beating Ken Jennings cash earnings record. One or two more wins, he would have passed him. Even more unusual, his loss comes one day after the fifteenth anniversary of Ken’s first game and the fifth anniversary of Julia’s loss. Hopefully James will...

Re: Wednesday, April 17, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

The All-Star tournament only had players who made their debuts in 2000 or later. So yes, another supertournament is in order. It could have a variety of other 2000's and 2010's top players (including superchamps) who weren't picked for All-Stars, plus the greats from the 80's and 90's. Coelacanth h...

Re: Nightmare Categories

In my first game, I had Agriculture Hall of Fame. Did not see that one coming - as far as I know, it's never been used before or since. Luckily, nobody else was very good at it, either.

Re: Should the Teen Tournament Winner Get a TOC Invite?

Absolutely, yes. Amanda Goad was in my TOC and very nearly made the final. There's no good reason to exclude them that I can see.

Won the FJ coin flip. Slightly nauseous that Ayn Rand is still a thing.

Re: Tuesday, January 30, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

and the series was based on the book The Fifteenth Pelican by Tere Rios. I'm a little bothered that I have perfectly good brain cells being used to remember those facts. I feel your pain. I did get FJ!--I don''t recall ever reading any Joyce, but the name Stephen Dedalus stuck in my mind. I probabl...

Backup answer for FJ: Isadora Wing. But I didn't think they'd go there.
