Re: Long-standing Jeopardy Traditions That We haven't seen in a long time

Before & After categories used to be relegated to the far right column. Now, it seems like they can appear anywhere.

Can't remember the exact wording of the clue, but why was "crossatlantic" disallowed? Seems like an acceptable alternative for transatlantic.

John didn't play the game to win with that DD wager.

You play to win the game.

Amazing since it seemed Roey owned the signaling device most of the game.

James Holzhauer confirms Final Jeopardy! response rule change



(Skip to 15:10 if it doesn't automatically)

I don't know if anything official was posted here, but many of us assumed it: no more "Hi Mom!" et al. when writing your FJ! response.

still trying to figure out bow wow and pitbull came to the minds of the challengers before snoop dog I'll be honest, I didn't know the answer but Pitbull was the first to pop in my head. I thought we were going to see something special after the J! round with James setting a record and the other 2 ...

For comparison Julia Collins won $428,100 in her 20 game streak. James beat that total in his 8th game. This is not a knock on Julia, just shows what a powerhouse James has been.

Alex was at his best after DD3 with, "We've got a game!"
You can tell Alex has enjoyed James's run and even so much today that it was a close game.

Tough luck for Adam, he seemed like a really excellent player who just happened to run into unarguably a top 5 all times player.

Re: Thursday, March 7, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Speaking of clear, I'm not sure why they negged "5 by 5" in the first place. I think that's the response that Kristin originally said aloud without ringing in. Alex had to tell her to ring in, then she rang in and gave an "incorrect" response of "5 by 5" (now said twice) which Alex was quick to giv...

Brad really pulled away in DJ! People were questioning his skills at the beginning of this tournament?

Is "Seven years war" an acceptable response for that final DD?

I, too, had 1 + 14 + 20 = 35.

I got Somalia almost right away (after a brief flirtation with Madagascar before "mainland" registered), then figured it had to be Sierra Leone or Senegal. 7 letters took care of it.
That's exactly how I got it, too. :shock:

Re: Jeopardy All-Star Games

I'm with the several like minds on here and Reddit that this is certainly a confusing format. 6 teams, 10 games? I've been trying to make sense of it ever since I first heard about the tournament and I just can't. I'm guessing the first 8 games will be to decide which 3 teams play in a 2-game final...

Does anyone else watch J! with closed captioning on? The 'Ecclesiastes' and 'Psalms' responses' captions were swapped on WABC.

Did not get FJ! Ended up writing down Langley.

It's like Claire wasn't even playing to win the tournament. Larry's smart wager on his DD all but locked up the championship for him. I thought FJ! was too easy. (A boundary between 2 colonies? Surely it can't be the Mason-Dixon Line.) Spent the last 25 seconds trying to think of any other famous bo...
