Re: Thursday, September 24, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I missed the Rhine river question because the clue stated that it flowed into Lake Constance but in reality Lake Constance is the source and it flows into the North Sea.

Re: Tuesday, September 15, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

A little irritated that I was stumped by Mary Higgins Clark, and even more irritated that I confidently said Jan Van Eyck instead of Jan Vermeer. Anyone have a clever way to separate the Jans? The way I keep them straight is that Vermeer really plays with light in his paintings, and often the light...

Re: J! in the Media

People.com has an article about the new season of Jeopardy. What got my attention is that the author thinks it's an ABC show, and not syndicated by Sony and that it's on at 7PM EST.

Re: Season 37 changes and predictions

Given all of the extra space afforded by HDTV, I wish they'd keep the scores on the screen in a corner. I wish that whenever they have the “make a word out of the letters in this word” they would have the base word on screen when that category is chosen. Yes. Totally. Now that Mark enters the game ...

Re: TD 451 - Fourth Flashback [Final results]

Thanks for the fun game. My sports knowledge helped out a few times.

I came in last on my last TD with all but 2 answers were sheep and on this TD I didn't name any sheep and I am 2 points out of first. I'll definitely take it.

Re: TD 450 - Best Laid Plans... [Q1-Q7 revealed]

Wow. This is my worst TD ever. I started out so good with a singleton, and the rest have all been sheep except one wrong answer.

Now my goal is to get below the all-sheep line.

The opposite of TD, there was the short-lived Match Game where the object was to choose the entry with the most guesses.

I don't need Google to point out my errors!

Re: New old games in the J! Archive

When I clicked on the Season 36 link, Google Translate asked me if I wanted to translate it. It assumed it was Norwegian. I couldn't figure out what triggered it.

Oops...I didn't indicate that I found this funny and just wanted to share.

Re: THE "J" EFFECT $1000 clue 12/5/19 [SPOILERS]

I am from the midwest, but in the early 80s I lived near Boston for a few years. I was often ridiculed for not understanding the local lingo, so I stopped asking questions in real time and would ask my coworkers for clarification later. When I was at a mall, I ordered an ice cream cone, and the woma...

The Amtrak conductors have always said Dowagiac as "duh-WAH-jack". Johnny had "DOW-a-jack". I grew up 30 miles from there and yes, it's 'Duh-WAH-giac'. Johnny butchered it so bad, I thought it was just some town I never heard of. We'll see if he gets it right tomorrow and I hope Jennifer doesn't ge...

Re: Tuesday, November 26, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

So am I the only one who doesn't think of "deal" as a one-syllable word? you think it has more than one syllable? "Dee-yul". Then again I've always parsed "world" and "field" as two-syllable words too. I'm not a language expert, but I'm pretty sure that the two vowels make it a dipthong, not a two-...
