Re: WWTBAM returns to primetime

Considering that I could not handle the slow pace and the obtuse questions of normal WWTBAM, I can't imagine throwing in celebrity contestants will improve on that at all. Questions were certainly obtuse in the syndicated version, the Regis version had questions very similar to Jeopardy. Amazing, a...

Re: Friday, April 3, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Interesting DD wager in the first round, and I think it's wrong. I've always wondered if it would be worth it to sandbag a clue at the end of the first round if you had a chance to pick first in the second round, and I'm generally against it...but this is an exception. You've got an almost 7% shot ...

Aren’t many things in the thread not necessarily in the canon yet, but things we expect will be In my opinion, things should only be posted once they are set in stone. Nobody cares about rumors and it’s not a race to see who can post first. In this case, we don’t have a title, which Jeopardy tends ...

Re: 2020 Current Events Discussion Thread

A new Law & Order spin-off is coming, Lt. Stabler is back. This series will be about organized crime. No title yet. I feel like at this point, we can't be definite about any announced TV, movie, or music projects that haven't already been filmed/recorded. I would say this is definitely coming, we j...

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

What was the TOM for "Magi" on Masters of Art for $200? That whole category seemed extremely difficult. "Adoration" pointed to something worshipful, probably related to the nativity (the chorus from "O, Come, All Ye Faithful" popped into my mind as soon as I saw the clue), and "trio" led me to the ...

Re: Monday, March 30, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

You omitted my favorites, the hand wedge and the foot wedge. Don't count that, I was interfered with! It’s actually quite a bit easier to properly line up your putt using the croquet stroke. Try it some time. USGA has stipulated that both feet must be on the same side of the putting stroke for as l...

Re: Monday, March 30, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I had never seen or heard of that putting style but I got it. You could actually be the world’s biggest golf expert and not get it if you didn’t know anything about croquet. Anybody with decent golf historical knowledge knows of the putting issues Snead had throughout his career as , well as the di...

Re: Friday, March 27, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I don't think I would've celebrated quite that much for winning $399 more than the second place player, but hey, maybe she'll do better in the next episode. Somebody has to! Technically, she guaranteed herself $1399 than the 2nd place player. But when you win a game of Jeopardy, it's cause for cele...

Re: Monday, March 30, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Golf will like having a GOLF category and I enjoyed the sweep even though the valuations seemed a little scrambled. I would have ordered them: $200 Eagle $400 Wedge $600 St. Andrews $800 U.S. and British $1000 Croquet Couple of personal comments, the wedge clue seemed to indicate that the pitching ...

Re: Thursday, March 26, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

J..... And Evan didn’t even try to win the game. Looks like Evan assumed Susan would make the normal cover wager, which would have dropped her to 5199, and Evan left himself with 5201. That part of it makes sense - he was just thwarted by a lower-than-expected wager from Susan. You have to factor A...

Joking poll request - what was worse in FJ, the wagers or the answers? Admittedly, Panama and Ecuador are both better than leaving it blank. But still..... And Evan didn’t even try to win the game. In retrospect, I’m pleased that all three contestants were able to write three countries in time. Mark...

Re: Monday, March 23, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I guess you have to go with your gut to figure out if 2nd place will play to double up, or play to win in a double stumper? No, you always bet to cover from the lead. That way you don’t have to live the rest of your life with the fact you had the lead going into FJ, answered correctly, and lost. Re...

Re: 2020 Current Events Discussion Thread

Perhaps all posts in the study guide regarding the postponement of the Olympics should be deleted until we actually know something?

Edit- we know something :lol: But those extraneous posts should be cleaned up. 😇

Re: Monday, March 23, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Or perhaps she was a holdover from the previous taping day and saw that Michonne did 14000+7000 against 13400 on the Friday game? I would really, really like this to be true. But we all know it's extremely doubtful. Arthur Chu did force a 2nd place contestant with some game theory sense to wager ev...

Re: Friday, March 20, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

In service of the environment, J! is recycling clues; "O Fortuna" was in a Seth Wilson's Netflix episode that I had just watched, but with audio. Got it right then, got it right now. Wasn't fond of the term "song" for O Fortuna, don't think that's accurate. It's a movement. Regardless, have seen mu...

Re: Monday, March 16, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Strategy note: Attack the must-play categories in the J! round early on, or at least after the DD is revealed - never save them to the end. Get them out of the way, so your triumvirate isn't forced to burn the higher value clues in DJ!. I've noticed contestants tend to do the opposite - why? What i...
