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

I've no dog in this fight, or skin in this game, or (cliche ad nauseum, ad infinitum), but are you waging a strawman war? At least my control-F doesn't show the word "perfect" in any of the previous thread postings. That may be why you are getting no explanation - nobody here has made this claim. I...

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

Why is this game being referred to as a perfect game for James Holzhauer? Yes, he answered 41 out of 41 correctly, but there have been other games with no wrong answers on his part and I see no reference to perfect for those. I've searched the web and I looked for the reference in this thread and co...

For what, comic relief?

So they have these three really poor contestants after a string of really excellent champions.

Re: Rules Question

If it's a category like "famous ROoneys" or "Famous Smiths", they'll want the first and last name as an answer usually. If it's a category with a word in quotation marks, and the clue refers to a name, most likely they'd want the first and last name("Rocky" being the category and the clue referring...

Re: Rules Question

Again if there's ambiguity, it would be asked in BMS. For example if they're asking a question about a politician and the answer happens to the member of the prominent Rockefeller family, then you'd have to specify. But 95%+ of the time, last name alone will suffice. I haven't heard of that rule or...

Rules Question

I was wondering if the rules on Jeopardy had changed slightly or if is just that my memory is slipping. This concerns the need for a first name when answering. I understand the current rule now where you only need the first name along with the last if there is some ambiguity in who you could be refe...

Re: J! 30th anniversary tournament

I wonder if the younger contestants/people from 04-2013 will have an advantage because we live in the age of social media. I think younger contestants will have an advantage because of better reflexes. Sounds like they haven't determined who will be there yet so we have no idea of the age breakdown...

Re: Wednesday, July 17, 2013 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

Will never root for a player who wagers like Kerri did. She's not a champ, she simply ended the game with the most money. 1399=Churchill, 94 hours=marathon? Please. I thought she pulled some great answers out of her you know what. She was a bit slow. I think some comedian did a routine about people...

Re: Wednesday, July 17, 2013 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

This is probably where my lack of knowledge helped. I didn't have any other possible options cluttering up my mind, so I had Tour de France right away and never wavered. Yeah, same for me. It seemed so obvious and couldn't think of anything else that would even closely work. Also, that fig/spinach/...

Re: Friday, July 12, 2013 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

Hey everyone, it's Mark. I've lurked here on and off for awhile, figured I should post during my games. I knew final right away, but it took a second read to realize exactly what the writers wanted. (The weird spacing is just my terrible handwriting.) I'll just echo what seaborgium said that as the...
