Re: Monday, April 20, 2015 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

Wonder how many "insta-get" puns will be made for tonight's FJ... ;)

Nice run, Alex. Enjoy your return trip to the ToC. (Wish I was making one of those myself!!)

Re: Monday, January 12, 2015 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

After the "Ducks" category in the J! round, I was looking for "Buckeyes" in DJ! ;) That would have taken a true crystal ball about 6-7 weeks ago! Good game by John and Lauren. For want of $200, Lauren could have had a shot at winning - had she realized the necessary betting strategy and assuming Jo...

Re: Monday, December 22, 2014 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

Without repeating golf, tennis, horse racing and car racing or April, May, June and July what is another sport with a major tied into a particular month and $800 value? I'm asking because I've got nothing. Bert cost himself the game being too trigger happy on the buzzer. It's too bad the DJ! round ...

Bert lost the game on jackknife. That was essentially a physics clue: speed, high center of gravity and centrifugal force equal roll over. Surprised at no rebound but Allison could not risk giving it back to Bert. Allison did remember Steiger in time for a big rebound earlier. Speaker being TS was ...

Re: Thursday, December 18, 2014 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

Tough game for me - too many wrong answers, got beat to the buzzer on plenty of others, and then in Double Jeopardy Kevin really hit his stride. I would have loved to have gotten that Godzilla daily double myself (how easy was that?!), and I wish I had gotten the buzzer timing on Emma Lazarus at the...

Re: Wednesday, December 17, 2014 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

Here's where I repeat a simple piece of advice to all J! contestants prior to taping -- be aware of when your show's airdate will be. Given that this was taped a few months ago, that "close to Christmas" clue likely would have been useless to them otherwise. And this isn't really all that hard to d...

Marsh gas = methane for $2000? At least one of the players must have thought about it, but got scared off by the value? Kurt: Did you know the cosmology DD?

On the Element clue about a noble gas with a symbol that's the postal abbreviation for a Midwest state, does anyone think Argon / Ar / Arkansas would have been accepted?

I thought of Joseph, but wasn't sure he was a ruler, so I switched to Pharoh. I thought Ramses, but only wrote down Pharoh. Bad bets by the two trailers. Jennifer was in a tough position - she probably needs to bet enough to cover a potential double-up by Peter, since if Ryan gets it right, she can...

Re: Wednesday, December 10, 2014 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

That was a tough position in FJ for the two contestants who were tied. I commend them for going all in, as it is most likely what I would have done, but since there are no more ties there is more incentive to wager small and hope for a triple stumper. That was a tough spot for Mindy and Travis, as ...

Interesting that Ann wagered to tie a zero bet by Patrick, but Patrick wagered to top Ann by a dollar if she bet zero. Does the new rule give the game to 1st place player in the event of a tie? Nope. It goes to a sudden death format where the first person to answer correctly wins. I was in the cont...

Me: WTF? Well unless it's the Spice Girls, I'm screwed... Honestly, I think that had I actually thought of the Spice Girls, I would have dismissed it. Equating the Spice Girls to the Beatles in any fashion? Uh, no. Next! That could have led to the one contestant going with Oasis, especially since I...

I'd just love to hear Johnny Gilbert's opening introduction the next day: "...whose one-day cash winnings total, ONE DOLLAR!" I would hope he could say it with a straight face. :lol:

Re: So Excited... Friend Has Gotten "The Call"!

A lot of folks might not have time to do this, but I treated my Jeopardy! preparation pretty much as a full-time job during the month between the call and my appearance. I more or less studied all day for four-and-a-half weeks, paying particularly close attention to the J! Archive. Just curious... ...

Re: Monday, October 20, 2014 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

I was shocked to see Literature as the FJ category when it was used only 2 shows prior!! (October 16th airing) Frederick had personality, but I felt like his delivery really slowed down the game, leading to non-cleared boards in both rounds. At least Alexander seemed to have the sense of urgency to ...

It's kind of particular to the Windows OS... as an example: "delete c:\filename.txt" - read aloud as "C-colon-backslash".

Re: Monday, October 13, 2014 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

I wonder - would the judges have accepted "subject and verb" or "noun and verb" on the DD clue about the non-agreement in the phrase "Everything she do just turns me on"? (actual answer being "subject and predicate") This was a pretty brutal board, I thought, especially after the relatively easy one...

Re: The Rankest Thread Imaginable

Thanks for the wishes. For now, let's go with "Destination: Culver City" as my status. Quick question... and forgive me if this is the wrong place to ask it... but should I be maintaining lurker status on this board until I tape? I don't want to somehow render myself ineligible; I just figured comin...

I have a separate suggestion: Would it be possible to place some date selectors [MM] [DD] [YYYY] on the front page, such that you could go directly to an archived show of interest? One reason for doing this would be for people who are catching up on episodes and don't want to see spoilers by going t...
