Re: Jeopardy 2019 North American Audition Tour

If anyone has ever played HQ or confetti, the 15 seconds allowed on the Jeopardy! test seems like an eternity, and the vast majority of the clues are very straightforward. So yeah I don’t know how many people care enough to game this test or help their buddy but I certainly hope (and assume) that th...

Re: Wednesday, May 15, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

nobody else wondering why they allowed the 1000 wager when he said all in and only had 200? Allowed it? I'd wager Dave doesn't know much about gambling, but I think his intentions (if not his "boss's") were carried out... I disagree. I think they need to take the contestant as literally as possible...

Re: Thursday, May 9, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I cackled a bit at the final $2000 wager that would drop her into a tie for the lead, but after thinking about it, the tie really doesn't have much effect in a QF as neither player should be making the cover wager, and the odds of them both picking the same amount to bet to maximize wild card chance...

Did anyone besides me get Tollund Man this time around? http://www.jboard.tv/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=1576
Count me in. Denmark 1950 == Tollund Man. Archaeology is one of my strongest suits.

Re: Monday, May 6, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Did the teachers get to witness any of James' games? Be curious to see if any of them try to imitate him. What was the logic behind Julia's wager? I would've thought the optimal strategy to be putting herself at $16,001. bad wager imo as well...if i were her i would have bet it all...if risking 6k ...

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

I'm not saying over 75% for Iceland though I would take over 40%. I would guess it to be in the 70% range. In Learned League 71 Match Day 7 was the following question: The world's first woman to be democratically elected as chief of state was Vigdís Finnbogadóttir, who served as what nation's presi...

Re: Question about game scheduling

I’ve made the same query before, and I don’t think there’s been any great answer. It feels like ockhams razor provides the obvious explanation. Most of the games are chosen at random during a week but clearly they must be able to designate certain games to air on a particular day. The contestants ar...

This bitching about it for 3 days, is that beneficial? So what I'm getting is that the TOM was super obscure for the top box. Can we just poll this and see how many actually got it?

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

So did you guess? You complain about 1 in 3 odds, but that's way better than the 0 percent chance of you not guessing. And clearly, other people had it figured out. You think that name comes from Ireland or Cyprus? Sure it COULD, but it's the top box. They're not trying to trick you there. I dunno,...

Re: $75,000 rule

The money limits that J! had (before the dollar values were doubled in 2001) were as follows: 1984-90: $75,000 1990-97: $100,000 1997-01: $200,000 sorry if this is a dumb question but Is the TOC excluded from this?

Re: Wednesday, May 1, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

We've seen what, three bottom row DDs in the first round the last few games? If the producers wanted to cut back on James's winnings that is a good way to do it. Are they legally allowed to change the random placement of DDs as a reaction to a particular player? I don’t think it’s ever been claimed...

Re: J! in the Media

Does anybody else find it hard to believe that Judge Judy reruns have been beating new Jeopardy! in the ratings for 40 weeks? These are not all reruns, I assume the article just meant in this specific week Judy was in reruns. Wiki says they make 260 new episodes per year, even more than Jeopardy, b...
