Nice job, Keith! THAT is the way you play the game. Yeah, unless you knew it, the $250K question is tricky.

The Saturday Quiz game show simulation

Hi JBoard. I came up with a game show simulation called The Saturday Quiz that involves random strings of dice rolls. My question is: Looking at how each game is presented (an example is at www.thesweepingdeveloper.com/tsq_game.php?game_id=4), would you like me to change how it looks, since I took a...

Doug Jones defeats Roy Moore to be Alabama Senator. You’re welcome. Geeze, it was the other way around 30 minutes ago... The last precincts to report were urban areas where much of Jones’ base resides. Check out this article conerning Jones' win (www.cbsnews.com/news/doug-jones-wins-alabama-senate-...

Your quote mentions Trump, but per the wording, it makes it sound like he's only the oldest ever elected in America (which he is), it doesn't say who the oldest elected int he world is.

Re: 2017 Current Events Study Guide

We in America have our oldest elected leader at age 70, Donald Trump.

Re: What do you guys think of Austin Rogers so far? [POSSIBLE SPOILERS]

Well, Austin has certainly shaken things up in the Jeopardy! studio. The intros are just a lose-lose all around for the contestants. Stand still and feel awkward? Let loose a little and get mocked?

Seth Wilson (or our Mystery Guest, if from Chicago) has a chance to make Chicago a city of J! ToC Champions for 3 of the last 4 years (joining Alex Jacob and Colby Burnett). So, yeah, my rooting interests are there.

Those were some strong finishes after Final. When I first heard of (Toulouse) Lautrec, I thought "Aaaah! This is our Scholars' Bowl meme!"

This...is super awesome. I definitely look forward to using this website. I work nights, so I'm not able to watch the show, but I do practice with the Archive. All those stats, just awesome.
