Austin posted a reasonably funny reaction video to today's result.
He should have done it in a 1991 Mercedes.

Re: Thursday, November 16, 2017 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

I'm still annoyed that they allowed those papal names without a number. I'm pretty sure I complained last time they accepted 'Benedict' without a number too, so I guess that's just how it works now. I guess. They need to state the rules explicitly if that's the way they want it. I'm with you in the...

Re: Thursday, November 16, 2017 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

When Austin found his first DD, he deviated from the strategy that got him there. It was a 2nd row clue with ~80 clues left, this was the perfect time for a TDD. I've said that in a two game format that today's FJ should be treated as a DD. Buzzy did the right thing without question, I'm not sure w...

I knew Lisa would not know enough to wager less than $1199. I seem to recall the same lack of wagering savvy in her original run.

Re: Monday, November 13, 2017 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

Offering 'radius' for 'circumference' was clearly a misspeak, you could tell she knew it It was a speaktoofass. I'm not sure why Andrew wagered defensively on FJ, unless he really felt unsure about the category. If you expect them to only ask about VPs who did not become POTUS, it would seem like a...

Re: Thursday, November 9, 2017 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

Agree with dhk, this was a superb clue. I quickly reasoned it out to apples = Washington, although I had a small worry it might be potatoes = Idaho for the remainder of the think music. The contestants are not batting very well with WWII factoids in this tournament. Another TS with Pearl Harbor on S...

The DD that David missed was just nasty. Was it? I feel like sasquatch was easy pickins since bigfoot is only seven letters. Could be canadian bias tho, do americans not really use that term? Americans are aware of it, at least. I'm sure 95% of Americans who've ever heard of the bigfoot legend are ...

That and Jason's uneasy guess on the Midway DD, instead of knowing it cold, assures me that I shouldn't expect any clues asking for the Graf Spee in the future.
That whole Axis category was under challenging for ToC level.

Why in the world did Alex say Clinton was "not a bad guess" for FJ!? That was a terrible guess! Just naming any random President would be just as good! Kelvin already knew that the answer was incorrect, so what purpose would it serve to let him know how egregiously wrong it was? I'm sure that he fi...

Lach Trash: Marlon Brando, Tone Loc, director's chair, library, The Boys of Summer, Centerfield
A certain Meat Loaf song comes to mind.

I had the same lach trash, with the exception of Tone Loc and library.

That was some awful FJ betting. Huh? He did even had a bit of momentum in DJ!, and was still well in contention in FJ!. He was $1000 short if having a realistic chance to win if Jenny knows how to wager, which she demonstrated aptly in her first game. He did make a savvy defensive wager to sneek in...

Picking which of the Godfather, Bodyguard, and Terminator don't have a sequel for the bottom box? Really? I couldn't believe my eyes. Only two of the most famous (and best) sequels of all time. Good lord. Concur. Also, J! seems to always over value garnet as January's birthstone. Maybe I'm biased b...

Re: Thursday, October 26, 2017 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

As I expected, Nan's random guesses ultimately kept her from becoming a five time champion. That easy peasy FJ was cruel for anyone rooting for her to get to game five. I was puzzled that they allowed responses without the proper century prefix in the Decade category. Was I missing something in the ...

I can get highbrow but I can't get this? :roll: I feel the same way. For some reason it never struck me they were looking for someone whose nickname was Casey. Derp. Same here.

Arc welding is one of the most common methods. It creates a high voltage between the welding torch and the workpiece. If there is a small air gap and a high voltage difference between the two parts the air will breakdown into a plasma arc and generate a lot of heat which melts the metal. If the air...

Nan definitely has charisma and I hope she can win five games but she needs to curb the guessing a little better. Her opponents in this game helped her out by making more errant guesses than she did. She will have her hands full against a strong player. I thought I heard Edgar say " the blood of an ...

Another sub shutout wager from the leader going into FJ. In this senario it wasn't as dangerous for Marcus to take that chance, so he went for an even $18,000. I think Nan may have anticipated him going for an even $15,000. I would have liked to see her cap the wager at 2800 which would be enough to...

So it seems first place yesterday played for second place today and finished third. Deserving.
He must have thought players with a comfortable lead frequently wager like Manny did a few days ago.
