Re: Thursday, June 11, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I hope to post a Fourth Podium Poll later tonight so we can all play along. Please include the FJ clue, if you do. Seriously, how many famous people have died from twenty-three stab wounds? How many know he was stabbed exactly 23 times? I certainly didn't. The part about it being a very long time a...

That had me hoping for a clue about David Clayton-Thomas.
Too bad the players avoided "Three Names" like the plague, keeping us from seeing all five clues.

Re: Tuesday, June 9, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Agree with above poster on the Johnny Carson TS :o Especially since the clue stated he was already a star at the time the movie was in the making. King of Comedy came out in 1983, so Letterman and Lenno were not household names yet. I clammed on it because I wasn't sure between Johnny Carson & Stev...

Re: Friday, June 5, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Of Will's 3 Wrong responses, two of them were bad guesses (-2600) that took him out of a position where he would have been very close to Meggie in the FJ wagering equation.

Meggie overwagered by 599 on her FJ bet.

Re: Thursday, June 4, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I believe there’s a grand total of two notable people who have perished in a motorcycle crash. I’d guess that if you asked 50 boardies to name one, about 35 would say Lawrence, about 8 would say Allman, and the rest kicking themselves for blanking on something they knew. Pete Conrad, third man to w...

Re: Wednesday, June 3, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Alex gives us a Belgian accent for Poirot and whatever that was for McCarthy (he was from Wisconsin, not Mississippi) but he couldn’t help us out with a German accent on Kissinger? Yeah, the McCarthy thing was funny. I wonder if Alex was doing Johnny Iselin from The Manchurian Candidate. Sounded li...

Re: Monday, May 18, 2020 Final Wager

Since this has come up multiples times, there is statistically no difference in wagering either $0 or $1 from Megan’s position. Any other wager greatly reduces winning chances partially because 2nd place doesn’t always wager everything. Except in this case, Ben telegraphed that he knew exactly what...

Re: Monday, April 27, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Although Grant seemed too obvious, I was thinking of his boozing reputation, which might make him lethargic enough to hold still.

When Lauren responded "Code Red" I was expecting Alex to make some coincidental comment about her red blouse. Wrong? Oh chit, that's right... it's Code Blue :oops:

Re: Monday, April 27, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Sarah got to give an oral thesis in the FJ! round where usually not a peep is heard aloud from contestants during that round. Let's hope they don't start making a habit of allowing that. Awkward explanations = bad box office Otherwise, she is a very pleasant contestant. I didn't know "hot mess" mea...

Re: Thursday, April 23, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Especially Sgt Pepper. That album alone gets you three of the five clues. They should've just gone for all five, rounding things out with Lovely Rita and Mr. Kite. Or, if you prefer, Albert Hall. This is pretty much what I was going to post. However, I would like to have seen Dr Robert come up in p...

Gary looks like a pretty good player. Looking for him to go on a run.... On the other hand, he thought John Lennon wrote Something . That tells me he has some holes in his knowledge base. I don't think he had any clue who wrote it, but after Andrew ruled out McCartney, it was worth taking a flier o...

Re: Monday, April 6, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I'm astonished Marshall finished the game above 15K, considering how far behind the eightball he was at DD3. The gimme FInal certainly helped him. Had Emma answered correctly, Marsall would still be in good shape for a wildcard. It sucks that after dominating the scoreboard for the first two/thirds ...

I'm kind of surprised it was even a bottom row clue.

Re: Tuesday, March 31, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

US State + named after an English county = only one choice as far as I know. Pretty straightforward once you ignore the coastline part of the clue. For me, the coastline part was the key. It might as well have just said, "This state has an 18-mile coastline." But that's what made it a good clue... ...

Re: Friday, March 27, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Sad to see Susan go, as she grew on me quickly in her second game. Her FJ wagering situation wasn't quite what I wanted it to be to shed light on her unorthadox bet for Thursday's Final. She did, however, make the absolute necessary all-in bet this time, which would have won her the game with a sing...
