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...

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

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...

Re: Monday, July 9, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

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". I was expecting him to say something about the sound edit, but he just mentioned the tie games last week. What gives? No, he ...

Re: Monday, July 9, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Always nice to see a savvy wager win a game for a player where most in that position would lose. Good wager from third as well, most of the time third wins this game with that wager. I actually worked out the ideal wagers during the break, then discarded them because I thought for sure they'd make ...

Re: Friday, July 6, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

So much for Marilyn’s game’s worth of experience helping her although as always when it happens, better in game 2 (or better) than in game 1. Was she not in the red for the entire DJ round? I started watching for her to bomb out of Final J with about ten clues left and I wondered when the last retu...

Re: Thursday, July 5, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

Tough for Suzanne to repeat going 0/4 on the big clues and yet she was only a harder FJ! clue away from doing it. Another sub optimal wager going into FJ without the lead, but it worked out for her with the stump. If she had only been as gun shy on her last two DDs as she was on her final wager, an...

Re: Wednesday, July 4, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

I wouldn't have guessed that the clue would play this easy. Granted, I did take "these three men" to refer possibly to any band that has exactly 3 male members, not just ones that are named for its 3 male members. I also didn't think that the song "Woodstock" was really that famous. And classic roc...

Re: Wednesday, June 27, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

Did we run out of time in the first round? I don't remember any of the other clues in CRAFTS & HOBBIES I thought it was cut awful short. That was the last category left and Scott went right to the bottom clue. Good thing he did or we wouldn't have seen the DD. Bad for him though, since he didn't kn...

[wipes brow] Here are all singletons: Wilbur Wood - MarkBarrett After the previous comments I thought about who I would have had if I went with what I would have called a Level 3 or 4 name when I consider Wilbur Wood level 2. Jordan & Pippen are of course Level 1. My Level 3 would have been Stan Ba...

I pre called Jan Brewer before even thinking about Sarah Palin.

That Gettysburg DD though.... what a pushover. If Virginia only could have known it was going to be that easy, she could have iced the game right there.

Re: Tuesday, May 22, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

I would have been tempted to wager 8k on the Art DD in Josh's spot. But I never even thought of Dali. I went with Duchamp, with Picasso as my second guess. I had a major case of dejavue on that one because it seemed like they just asked for Dali in a mustache category last week. Then I realized it ...
