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...

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...

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...
