Re: Wednesday, April 29, 2015 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

Sitting in the audience watching this FJ, it didn't seem so confusing. However I may have been helped by the fact that my wife precalled "Radio Shack" when the category came up, therefore putting them in my thought process. I actually precalled Best Buy because they had been in the news as well. Onc...

Re: Tuesday, April 28, 2015 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

The Supremes were not hit, but of course Beastie Boys, Destiny's Child, Green Day, & Blink-182 were hit with no problem. Is there even a single person here who matched that YNYYY result? It was YYYYN for me. NYNNN for me. I think I have at least heard of the other four, but no way of knowing anythi...

Re: Tuesday, April 28, 2015 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

Dani went with a 'nice tidy number' for her FJ wager, as opposed to a 'nice round number' resulting sum . Had Salvatore wagered a 'nice tidy' $5000 he would have taken second place away from her. As for the FJ wager, I assumed that Dani would either bet to lock out my double up or she would bet zer...

Re: No College and/or Teen play this season?

The next 2 weeks are a Tournament with the regular games coming back May 18.
Also when I was out there taping, Greg said there had been 3 weeks since he was last out in California, so it looks like 2 tournaments taped in between his first appearances on Thursday and Friday and his return on Monday.

Re: Tuesday, April 28, 2015 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

Didn't like the term "hit" in FJ, doesn't really define it, I knew, for example, that "It's Pat" didn't qualify, but I didn't know if my answer of "Coneheads" did. It obviously wasn't as much of a hit as "Wayne's World", but it was a bigger hit than "It's Pat", so ... ? I said Coneheads as well, ca...

Salvatore certainly muffed that first Two Syllable, Two Syllable clue. Dani went with a 'nice tidy number' for her FJ wager, as opposed to a 'nice round number' resulting sum . Had Salvatore wagered a 'nice tidy' $5000 he would have taken second place away from her. For the Hard Rock/Heavy Metal cl...

When Alex did his church lady impression, I thought I was wrong. Not sure why he did that.

Great to see another boardie (Salvatore, aka mrsal) play. Looks like you were beaten on the buzzer a lot in DJ, perhaps the CCs helped Dani (and maybe Greg) with their buzzer technique? (It looks like you have a bit of Native American in your ancestry?) I had trouble on the buzzer during practice (...

Here's a possible poll question: "I actually knew this bit of trivia about Kate Middleton". I sure as !@#$ didn't, but WAGged my way into the right answer by trying to think of a famous wedding that took place around that time. I'll take it. I didn't know the name of the company, but I knew her par...

Re: Wednesday, January 28, 2015 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

I nominate "Identify Pennsylvania and Ohio on a map" for $1000 as the most undervalued Jeopardy clue of all time. I second that nomination. I bet all 15 contestants from Kids Week would have gotten that correct. Surprised Marissa pulled it off after missing Linus Pauling. Don't you mean overvalued?

Re: Tuesday, January 27, 2015 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

One related question for the Board: When the writers use the term "Best Actor," does that mean ONLY the man who wins for "Best Actor in a Leading Role?" Time was the academy distinguished between "Best Actor" and "Best Supporting Actor" (and I know many still use those terms.). But if I'm not mista...

If you haven't seen Becket with Richard Burton and Peter O'Toole, yall are missing out. Absolutely fantastic movie. Absolutely correct, an excellent movie. I saw Becket in high school in my British Lit class. Instantly got FJ correct. You should watch Peter O'Toole play an older Henry II in the Lio...

since the clue does not actually mention "agriculture." My mind leapt first to "Amethyst" (always stupid amethyst), but I pushed it away and started looking for clues. I seized on "fertility" and made the leap to agriculture, and, of course, it didn't take much to get -> green -> EMERALD OR JADE ->...

If what everyone says about how important it is to play the game the right way in your audition in order to get selected, I don't understand how people can make it onto the show and then: 1. Answer before Alex calls your name 2. Call out "the same" instead of naming the category (2 times I think) 3...

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

"15" Years was totally impenetrable to me. What led to 315 at $200? Constantine is from the 4th century (300s), or at least his world-changing acts were done then. Like making Christianity the religion of the Roman Empire in I think 330. Was that really the $200 clue? Seems awfully difficult for a ...
