Re: Friday, September 21, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Rob was visibly flustered with the signaling device during the first segment. I think it was more to do with Kyle's superior timing, but Rob turned it around nicely in the DJ round. It was like Kyle just finally ran out of steam but I wonder if the board yeilded less than favorable categories for hi...

Re: Thursday, September 20, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Did Bucky have a flight to catch? Funny as hell when Bucky took off after Kyle won and Alex was making his way over for the handshakes. Kyle and Amanda were laughing along with viewers. Bucky hustled back to be in place for the proper closing. That reminded me of a 1999 incident on Late Night with ...

Re: Wednesday, September 19, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Her Final wager also used mis-guided 'strategy'. I'm not sure I agree. One of the valid strategies is to wager enough to cover Jonathan if he doubles, but not enough to fall below Kyle's MSBIW. Jordan's wager falls into this range. Only by complete accident. She wagered $1 less than Jonathan's tota...

Re: Wednesday, September 19, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Ouch. Jordan. I was rooting for her to make a gutsy wager when it counted. That was a rough way to lose. Kyle more than met Jordan halfway by dropping $5000 between a missed DD and a missed $2k clue. Yet when Jordan uncovered the second DD, she chose to stay in second place. That left her $200 behi...

Bravo on Emily for her FJ wager. Kyle is fortunate she wasn't standing in Shawn Moore's place on game 2 last Thursday.

Re: Tuesday, September 11, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Rick had another chance to win the game in the FJ! round while of course how was he to know Lori would cover a possible 35600 by going up to 34401. That’s J! Not sure what Lori's FJ wager was supposed to accomplish, other than making viewers at home think "Rick should've bet it all!", which isn't t...

Re: Monday, July 23, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Dave finding DD3 and willing to bet big again with 5K instead of doing once bitten, twice shy gave him just enough to be home free for the 61st clue of the game. I bet he was glad as hell he made the big bet on DD3 when he saw how easy FJ was. It'll be interesting to see if he continues the pattern...

Re: Tuesday, July 17, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

And I wonder if I'm the only one who is really weary of Alex's attempts at voice imitations? They're distracting - at best - and simply not very good or funny. Someone get the man to a community theater so that he can let that inner thespian out every once in a while - and not during the show. No, ...

For these shenanigans, I had to root against him.

Tough luck for Kyle, who stayed clam enough to be top dog at the end of DJ. You could tell he was flummuxed by the final.
I liked Caitlion's final wager.

Re: Tuesday, July 17, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

As soon as Michelle finished DJ with a non crush lead, I knew she was doomed. Ryan was like the Bismark, training its turrets on the HMS Hood.

I do think it was a bit wreckless for Ryan (and Bunny) to wager everything. They're lucky it was not a bumb clue.
This one should poll better than 80%.

Re: Friday, July 13, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

Bryan wasn't able to capitalize on Michelle's savvy awful FJ! wager, so the player who was strongest overall gets to come back again to defend her crown. What a strange way to get to that outcome. I had Bryan recommended for a 6999 bet to stay above Michelle's left over, if she tried to cover him d...

My hearing may be going, but I would swear Johanna left off “ what is” in her answer to the Newton question. I also thought she missed it on her Bell answer, but she might have muttered it under her breath. I had my head turned so I didn't see the screen but it certainly sounded like a no phrasing ...

Re: Thursday, July 12, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

Those wagers...woof. Not sure why I bothered calculating their optimal wagers, when I was pretty sure they'd just bet it all or close to it. Didn't see Michelle's wager coming though. If she hated the category, why bet anything, let alone enough to fall behind a double up by Wes (who shouldn't have...

Re: Tuesday, July 10, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Alex did make note of Wes' savvy wagering. I was hoping he would end with a narrow lock over Doug so we could see if he would do it again. Now all we need is a really savvy leader tomorrow taking advantage of Wes' wagering style. I would love to see this happen but I doubt Wes will wind up DJ in th...

Clue 30 in the J round was definately re-dubbed by Alex. Then he made a comment about being tongue tied just before the break, and that he would "explain it when we return".
