Re: Thursday, June 20, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I'm glad Jackson had sense enough not to make the standard cover wager. I was a little concerned when his incorrect response was revealed, having seen the leader in Monday's game make the 'normal game' FJ wager. That person would have been relegated to the audience for the semi-finals by now if they...

Re: Wednesday, June 19, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

With Justin firmly in control of his destiny, Rohit and Sophia had quite a see-saw battle for second going on in DJ. Sophia wound up with an outside shot at a wildcard, after a dismal start trying to figure out the buzzer timing. It looked like she was ringing in way too early on some of those. Rohi...

Re: Thursday, June 13, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I have seen the movie and remember the basic concept of that scene, but I had no memory that the word glitch was in it. Even if I had, I would not have known that the astronauts themselves actually originated the word. I actually got this one on the grounds of "What else could it be?," but I never ...

Re: Thursday, June 13, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

In today's case I was able to match E.J. & Adrienne for the solve as I had nothing better to guess and it seemed to fit just fine even though I knew nothing of the source. Same here. I was 80% sure I'd be wrong as I didn't see how the clue led to it other than that I couldn't think of any other wor...

Re: Monday, June 10, 2019 Final wagers Discussion (SPOILERS)

Pardon me if this kind of thing has already been discussed to death here, but what is the logic behind the FJ bets of Brendan and Mary? Martin's shutout bet was completely predictable, but still the right move. Neither Brendan nor Mary attempted to predict that bet. Contestants almost never do. If ...

I think she might have if she had written it down left-handed.

Re: Monday, June 3, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Anyways, I get that in theory, he made the right wager, and also in practice it was the right wager, but I have a question for the vikings: could a wager of $11,399 (to stay above Jay's DJ score) or even $7,799 (to stay above Jay's score if he wagers at most $4,600 which is the right move for him) ...

Re: Monday, June 3, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Why bet so little in FJ if you've got nothing to gain and nothing to lose? The novelty of it? He had everything to gain if Emma missed FJ. He had every reason to believe that Emma would bet enough to shut him out, so his only chance of winning was a miss by Emma. With that in mind, he played to gua...

Re: Wednesday, May 29, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Can't say I've heard of "Time After Time" before. That and going with the wrong Queen song (for the record, I despise Queen) left me 3/5. Lach Trash: "Bad". That was a very surprising TS. I guess 80s pop is right up my alley, 5/5 recognizing all the songs and 3/5 right (mind said Bad, mouth said Be...

Okay, let's do a little threadjacking.

Re: Monday, May 27, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I had to look up Hanging on the Telephone to verify it was an actual song. I own a Blondie Greatest Hits CD, but I never heard of that song. It's on MY Blondie Greatest Hits CD. Also on Blondie Live. "Call Me" is as well, of course. I'll partially join TPH on this one. I mentally fumbled around wit...

Re: Monday, May 27, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Despite music being one of my worst categories, I managed to get 4/5 of the Biggest Hits, missing only the $800 clue (1976/ Silly Love Songs ). Looking it up just now, I legit don't think I've ever heard this song before. Also, it's terrible, why was this a hit. When you put it next to songs like D...

So who else joined me on seeing "Blondie was phoning it in" and said "Hanging on the Telephone" instead of "Call Me"? not me...never heard of either those songs before Went with "Call Me" as a total guess. Didn't know whether it was Blondie or not, not if that was the correct title. Never heard of ...

Re: Thursday, May 23, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I thought James was terribly bold on his DD. If he'd missed it, he would have been finished right there. No deposit, no refill. Yeah, a pretty stunning display of hubris. What does he think he is, 57/61 on daily doubles or something? What a rube! And even if you take out the 16400 he got from that ...

Re: Thursday, May 23, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

No one could figure out bind?? I knee jerked 'what is cover'. Would have never made the connection to binder in the alloted buzz-in time. So was this the first game James wagered (FJ) more than he could safely afford? If he had no desire to beat Ken Jennings' record streak, a shortagey wager of 960...

I can hear the wagering vikings riding in to castigate Adam for not going all in on DD2, but not doing so on a $2000 Science clue is more than understandable by my book. Nope. They've seen what James is capable of. The ONLY correct wager on a DD is all-in. James should have lost today. Nate wagered...

I don't know what other guesses are even plausible for Final. Maybe if somebody had a major brain fart and tried Born on the Fourth of July? I had no clue, although it clearly had something to do with the Civil War. I went with "The Blue and the Grey". That was a movie, right? "The Blue and the Gre...

Re: Friday, May 17, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Looks like there could be some number crunching Monday morning quarterbacking for Sara at DD2 and Sara not trying for second place in the FJ! round. Shame, she seemed to be oblivios to the importance of her final wager, and how it could effect her winnings. Without doing the crunching, I believe sh...
