Re: Trivia about Trivia: Obscure Record Holders

I've just seen a comment on Facebook where Jeff Richmond pointed out that he has played FJ alone ( in the UToC ), against one other person ( in his second game ), against two others (in all his games not linked here), and against three others ( in the Super Jeopardy quarterfinals ). Safe to assume ...

Congrats to Ryan on a great showing!
It must be nice to be able to change your DD wager after the clue gets revealed...
I was gonna say, how often does this happen? I thought they were strict on that.

Re: HQ Trivia

HQ has spawned a few clones. One of which is quite a treat. Its called "The Cash Show" . Just like HQ, you play 12 questions, but in The Cash Show, payouts begin at question six. The result is easier, smaller wins. The best part for HQ fans is that each episode is one half hour after HQ: 3:30pm ET a...

Re: On the subject of "No harm, no foul."

Last time I talked about this scenario with someone, we briefly talked about the idea of a stumped leader purposely ringing in with a not-in-the-form-of-a-question response to try and coax second place into an incorrect rebound.

For "hero sandwich"/"ham sandwich", do you accept "hoagie sandwich"?

Re: Tuesday, November 14, 2017 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

I've got to say it warms my heart to see a slew of Jeopardy alumni band up to defend Lisa from naysayers on Twitter right now. It looks like they really are a close knit circle, one that I hope to have the privilege of joining one day.

Gotta feel for Lisa. She seemed absolutely crushed to lose this game. I thought I could make out Alex saying to her "That's OK... that's OK..." during the credits.

Re: Who Wants to be a Millionaire before Jeopardy

Same goes for Bill MacDonald. He was on Millionaire in 1999, and later made a run on Jeopardy. To date, he's one of only three people to win at least six figures on both shows. If you include my $2000 consolation prize when I lost the fifth J! game, there are four. 125K on Millionaire, 100,901 on J...

Congratulations on a great win, Scarlett! You earned every dollar, and here's hoping you go on a run of your own. Would love to see a rematch in the ToC! I had a hunch Austin would lose today just because he's going to be on the Tonight Show tonight. I know he was on GMA already, but it seemed to me...

Brian Fodera was on Jeopardy not too long ago. He was on Millionaire back in 2000. Same goes for Bill MacDonald. He was on Millionaire in 1999, and later made a run on Jeopardy. To date, he's one of only three people to win at least six figures on both shows. He's the only person to win $125,000+ on...

Today did have the closing with the players staying in place and of course the balloon animal opening got an encore.
Is that just something they've been doing lately? I haven't really noticed. Maybe one of the players had mobility issues?

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

I really like Austin's attitude when he misses a daily double. A lot of contestants get devastated when they miss a big daily double and Austin just takes it in stride and keeps on playing. I do as well. I'm sure some find his reactions of "whatever"/"it's okay" offputting, but those are the viewer...

Re: Tuesday, October 3, 2017 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

Two others have posted what they thought Austin's max wager should have been. I got a different number. $18,600 could double to $37,200, so Austin must wager at least $2201. If he misses that, he sits at $32,799. If Amy wagers to clear just that, she wagers $14,200. Missing that gives her $4400. So ...

7) Set a record for most money wagered in FJ! ( AND WON! ) Not sure what you're basing that on, but there have been two $30,000 FJ wagers. http://www.j-archive.com/showgame.php?game_id=3459 http://j-archive.com/showgame.php?game_id=4285 $34,000 > $30,000.
