I think the best way to rule out Jerusalem is to recognize Jeopardy isn’t going to ask a contestant to choose between that and Beirut as far as westernmost. Therefore neither can be correct.

Given that he grew up in a religious home and studied theology his bet seems fine. If FJ was “Golf”, what would the category’s namesake bet if he was in Jeff’s spot? Golf would make the wager that shows the highest winning chances. Against a standard player $5201, against certain player types such ...

Was there really no other way to tease out an answer of Brandy without using a 50 year old song that's basically been forgotten?
Isn’t it sweet when the younger generation believes things like this about good songs from the past that people still listen to?

Sincerely,

Re: Tuesday, May 11, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

When you don't start at the top of the category, I assume it's because you're hunting for daily doubles, and I don't see the point in half-assing it by going to the second row. I know that there's plenty of DDs in the course of a season in the second row, but it makes more sense to me to go for at ...

Judges ruling: For Ride of the Valkyrie I said "Kill the Rabbit"... What say you all?
Absolutely. Assuming you sang it three times with the appropriate melody and gusto.

No matter how often the dead wagering horse is beaten, contestants never seem to comprehend the concept. Am about to give up, throw up my hands, and exclaim “I informed you thusly, I so informed you thusly!”

Re: 2021 Current Events Discussion Thread

The official results have been posted. In the last couple of years one or two similar occurrences have happened with no change in payouts.

Books won’t have to do anything. But it wouldn’t surprise me if an online book or two decide to pay tickets on Mandaloun win bets only.

Re: Rename the "lock-tie"?

Lock-tiebreaker

This is accurate and simple yet indicates the difference from when ties were allowed.

The only clue where that mattered was the TS and the answer given after was 6. So perhaps the contestants were advised off camera that would be the case. Otherwise, technically a ballerina clue would require a BMS needing either 2-2 or hard four.

Having spent way too much time in poker rooms and casinos in a lucrative former life, I have never heard the term Jimmy Hicks. And as a third row clue above a natural 7 and acey deucy? That’s just goofy. If it were me, I’d move acey deucy to the third row and put “centerfield” at the bottom. Mark, I...

Depending on source, Hawaii can claim as few as 8 or as many as 11 of the Earth’s 14 climate zones. It’s not all beaches and sun.

Re: Reretaken Down

I do love that Soccer is an everyman's game and can be played with limited equipment and facilities, and mostly simple rules. I just think it needs some tweaking to create viewable content and suspenseful games. I don't know enough about it to suggest tweaks, but something has to be done about the ...

Boys and girls, this is why you wager $0 from the lead against certain player types. I'd love to see the Cheezy one query his database and pull out the wagers in this scenario from both before and after ties were scrapped. How many instances, how many times 2nd place wagered everything, how many tim...

To be fair, that was a tough clue if you don't know that exact game. It was easy to neg with Manchester United because they are England's biggest club and are also known as Reds(mostly Red Devils, but I have heard them called Reds). But if you're a futbol fan like me, and I know a couple others on ...
