Re: Tuesday, April 16, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Katie was not heard from until Alex talked to her. Adam and James were not about to take a nap with the remaining $400 clues to give Katie a chance to play the FJ! round. No mercy. I thought the same thing. Let her back in the game!! That wasn't very sportsmanlike of either Adam or James. When Kati...

KevinBohannon wrote:I initially wrote, "What is Iwo Jima?" then scrunched the rest of the words on there. Far too easy for FJ.
Took me about 5 seconds of processing to get it. I think it would have been a more worthy clue if they had ommitted the word "military".

I picked up the 'Stylus' lach trash.

Re: Monday, April 15, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I'm happy with how I did considering I hadn't seen James play. I gather Megan had not seen James play yet either? I was aggrevated that she made no attempt to keep at least one of the second round DDs away from him with her opening choice from the top row. You were going tit for tat with James' DD ...

one more thing: hate the happy birthday shtick (yeah, hate). when's scarlet's birthday? today? tape day? who cares? In the FJ! round he might want to spend more time on the clue and less on the shout out even in a runaway. Things can pop into your head 25 seconds into the clue at full concentration...

Re: Thursday, April 11, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

But how did two contestants come up with Madonna? She doesn't do workout videos and was still unknown in 1982. :?: Not that being a workout video was part of the clue. I had Fonda in under ten seconds. Trying to think of a few plausable incorrect responses, and I can only come up with Olivia Newton...

Little Round Top for Gettysburg was way over valued at $2000. Actually, the whole category should have been Single Jeopardy.

I really liked Across State Lines.

Re: Tuesday, April 9, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Does James have an Achilles heel? Maybe Ballet? Remains to be seen ...... Sameer, at least, knew what he was up against but lost his buzzer mojo in the big money round Indeed it will be interesting to watch, as James' opponants grow more aware of what they have to do to beat him. By the end of this...

Re: Tuesday, April 9, 2019 Discussion (SPOILERS)

Also, 110,914 seems somewhat random. His daughter was born 11/09/14. The dude left over $20,000 on the table for that? As much as I like numerology, that's carrying it a bit too far IMO. Not only could he have bumped up the record to the equivalent of KJ's 74 wins, that $20G could have gone into hi...

I hope he wins that $80,000 I was hoping for sometime this week. Well, if he keeps getting these pushover FJ clues, at some point he may be tempted to go Clavin on one. I think he'll at least wait until after he has five wins though. Roger Craig is glad he didn't know how easy the clue was going to...

Re: Monday, April 1, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I breathed a sigh of relief when Steven got the correct FJ and wagered properly. Bigger relief when Reid got FJ wrong. I've been rooting for Steven to win at least 5 games. It was looking like Reid was going to knock him off for a while. He sure was sharp in the MULTILINGUAL OVERLAPS. It would have ...

Re: FJs for the 3/25/19 week

:( :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :( :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :( I had a great grandfather that was named Walter Lord. No relation to the author, who's father Walter Lord Sr. would have been about the same age as my GG. I I read A Night to Remember over forty years ago, and my GG lived until 1983.

Re: Monday, March 25, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

1960s America was a cake walk except for the bottom clue. I don't recall ever hearing of the author.
I knew Alan Shepard on sight alone.

In the other category, I had the Titanic sinking as soon as I heard "50 survivors".

Re: Monday, March 25, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I had to sweat it out that they were going to get through all the Women in Song clues before time ran out. When clue 29 should have been a buzzer race to bag "Sharona" before the DD was revealed, it seemed like there was a delay before Ryan rang in. It turned out to be a turning point for the worse ...

Re: Friday, March 22, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Kind of disappointed that none of the groups I precalled showed up in ''The Girls In The Band'. No Go-Go's, B-52s or Bangles. Although I admit, I couldn't name a single one of the latter. But a clue with Kathy Valentine or Gina Schock would have made my day. I had a hunch the Bells DD was going to b...

Re: Thursday, March 21, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Kate gave a response of "what is Discharge" in what I thought was the 3 Consecutive Consinants category. Had me scratching my head and waiting for a reversal. I thought it was supposed to be the first three letters of the word they were looking for. What was the actual clue/category?

Re: Thursday, March 14, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

There's obviously not enough time to run through 30+ States in 30 seconds, so for that, I think the clue stinks. There wasn't any T-O-M in it either, that I could see. I'm pretty amazed all three managed to come up with it. I disagree on not having enough time, everybody is different. Some can do i...

Re: Wednesday, March 13, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

This was a good FJ clue but I wonder how few contestants would have known about the novel if the movie had never been made. It was certainly the only way I would have solved it (via seeing the movie). Barton has pulled the tough two-peat of a win from 3rd and now from 2nd. The lead has been well wit...

For me, it was pushback.

But really, it was just common sense & logic.
If Eric had wagered 5398, now that would have been savvy.
