Re: Monday, January 15, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

FJ wagering - Gilbert stuck to the script, covering a double by Tyler. Tyler's wager would have put him $1 ahead of Gilbert on a correct response, forcing Gilbert to also get it right. But a zero wager by the leader is pretty unlikely. He could have wagered up to 2999 without risking falling behind...

Re: TD 365 - clt013

Does Q-3 require both the name of the TV show and the movie if they are slightly different, or just either title?

I blanked on Warren's name thanks in no small part to our crude POTUS' insults which dominated my retrieval process. Last semester, I mentioned Tecumseh's curse to our team. But it did end with Reagan. Unless you subscribe to the Zombie Reagan theory. And the Android George W. Bush theory. I got an...

Re: Thursday, January 11, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

If Julie had gotten her DD right, she would have won, and then they'd have had to invite Gilbert and Rebecca back. If it was just that one Daily Double and nothing else being changed, I dunno about re-inviting Gilbert since his Final wager didn't look significant enough to alter the outcome of the ...

Disappointed that Vinyl Resting Place was not finished. Never heard of Manchester by the Sea and likely never will again. :x Yeah, I didn't know that was going to be about vinyl records until they finally started revealing the clues. Figures. My enthusiasm for the FJ category was quickly disolved w...

Re: Wednesday, January 10, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

Lindsay corrected Alex during the interview and it was all downhill from there. All three players were personable for me to root for them. Too bad two of them had to lose. I didn't get the Warren Harding clue but evidently the TOM must have been something to do with the 'smoke filled room', as the b...

Re: Tuesday, January 9, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

I like Lindsay but her final wager was a disapointment. If she were willing to let Matt back in the game with a greater than 1799 bet, the very least she should shoot for is $10401 to counter a venusian 800 wager from Brandon. Otherwise, put it all up but a buck. Matt took a lot of shot-in-the-dark ...

Re: Monday, January 8, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

Instaget on FJ, but then I started pondering who else could the clue possibly be referencing. Only thing I could think of was the macabre, JFK becoming an ex-president while LBJ took the Oath of Office on Air Force One... Second thought: "this clue is massive negbait for Truman" and I wouldn't have...

Should I ever find myself on Jeopardy! and the Final category comes up "CARS", I'm definately going to clavin it.

Sean escaped a weak subject final by virtue of a runaway. I hope he can put another strong game up to break the one-timer streak.

I do not know Golf’s religious views, but I suspect he spent the last commercial break praying Michael was an opera buff. It wouldn't had matter if Michael was an Opera buff since Steph got FJ right and made the cover wager. Michael was in a position where he could wager enough to win and still pro...

Re: Tuesday, January 2, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

Intelligent final wager by Saralee but I'm not sure why she would risk a tie-breaker. If Nick decided to play it safe with a small wager, he should still bet 601 which would make her potential $15,000 a moot point. Five clues not played has the year off to a bad start for boards not completed. Today...

Some thoughts: • The "gangster" rule gives an unfair advantage to players with non-rhotic accents • Now I'm wondering what the ruling would be for something like "Feelin' Groovy". The title word is "feelin'", not "feeling", but (unless you enunciate very carefully) the nasal will tend to assimilate...

I don't think I've ever heard that term, unless it's an outdated pronounciation of 'britches'.

Yeah, I also thought it was way overvalued.

Re: Friday, December 29, 2017 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

Travis made the traditional wager from the lead even though it seemed the category was not a good one for him. Henry must not have liked the category either as he bet nothing although I thought a 3601 was possible thanks to Alex tipping off that one player was not happy. From his expression post re...

And naturally, the one occasion we see someone not bet the wad (save a buck or two) from third place, they actually *should* have. You'll get used to it :lol: I wouldn't expect to see Natalie in a casino. I'm thinking Ami is not well versed on wagering theory either. I predict she'll go down in the...

I really hated to see Johnny get ousted, but it couldn't have been by a more delightful contestant. Love her non assuming personality.

We're moving to the Akron area as soon as we can sell our house built at the height of the bubble and unwanted for two years now. I have a niece that has lived in or near Akron for the last 12 years. Last year while stopping over on a cross country drive, she took us and her daughters to the Akron ...
