I make my 3rd foray from C to B. Let's see if it last more than one season this time.
Likewise I'm taking my 3rd crack at A Fjord. Had to dip down to C this time to build extra momentum coming back up, we'll see if that strategy paid off.

Re: Millionaire 2017-18 Season Discussion [SPOILERS]

It looks like Central Park is said to have 26,000 trees, certainly seemed quite plausible that this number could be in the 9,000s. Anyone have a good reason why one should know to go benches over trees? Maybe the precise number given? Obviously every bench had to be procured and installed, so would ...

Looks like I might be alone in my incorrect WAG: pstenosis. Didn’t think of lumbago, considered pscoliosis but it sounded really silly so I landed on the just as silly sounding pspinal pstenosis

Do they film all 5 shows back to back on one day, keeping the contestants isolated so that will not know how the results of the other contestants?
That is exactly what they do. Every tournament for 35 years, to the best of my knowledge.

Re: DHKendall - did you just win $8333.33?

Looks like our boy jeff6286 was one of the 45 winners of tonight's big prize. Congrats! Thanks! After lots of near misses I finally managed to take down a (by non-Kendall standards) big one. They had a $100k Nike game a while back that had just 4 winners, and I was within one miss on q13 of making ...

Re: Sad Legal News About a Former Champion

You could maybe explain what in the hell you're talking about rather than these constant cryptic statements. Successful promotions make people angry? Why? Is this too much to ask?

I somewhat foresaw the trouble when the Smashing Pumpkins clue came up, internally noting that if I were on the show I'd very carefully pronounce "Cor-gan" to make sure it was clear. Unfortunately Randy went the Wrong Way with Corrigan.

Re: Millionaire 2017-18 Season Discussion [SPOILERS]

The number nine given seems problematic. Per wikipedia Bush had 6, and Reagan had 5, so the number could be as high as 11. They both had a daughter die young, so if it says "had 9 living children at the time of election", it seems undeniably correct. "Had" could be read in different ways, meaning t...

Re: Wednesday, April 18, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

A fascinating set of FJ wagers kind of wasted by the sole get. Dhruv's $6800 bet has two very plausible reasons, could be going for the nice round figure of $20,000, but also on a miss it leaves him with $6800, beating the leader's $6,799 by a dollar, a pretty reasonable choice in the Stratton's Dil...

Re: Fun with GSN's "Winsanity"

I think if you just substitute round number for even number this could’ve been solved 12 posts sooner. However I’m not sure logic was 100% infallible. I have no specific knowledge of the westworld universe but I see no reason to assume they couldn’t charge 57,000 instead of 40,000. I’m not sure I’ve...

FJ get rate might be higher for us on this board, but for contestants, 50/50 sounds about right. I wonder if a mod could pull the data from the weekly polls to see what the board averages. I looked over my own results for the first 13 weeks of this year and had 48 correct out of 65 clues (I exclude...

There was a $100,000 Nike-sponsored game tonight. I made it through Q12, thinking I was among 190-odd winners, before I realized it was a 15-question quiz. As a result, I got twitchy on Q13, which I would have answered correctly had I thought about it for a few seconds, and then knew the last two q...
