Re: Friday, December 6, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

The players went through the material enough to allow for a full credits run. Nice to see things back on track for full 61-clue games after the DJ! round disaster on Monday. Katie put an end to Jennifer's streak of finding all the DDs. Unfortunately for her she missed it and also made enemies in th...

Re: Wednesday, December 4, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Yes, Jennifer played really well, and I got to talk with her during lunch and she is really sweet person and extremely well versed in the arts, and she had a brother that's a big opera fan, so it was a tailor made final for her. Just wanted to put out there my game is on Friday so if you guys do hav...

Re: Wednesday, September 18, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

On any other day, Barbara. Any other day ... I think I only got Twisted Sister in the Metal category. I almost said Twisted Sifter, since that's a web site I follow, but I managed to spit it out correctly. You are too kind, alietr, but I agree. There are days I would have beaten him, but I understa...

Re: Sony Reportedly Searching For Alex's Replacement

Whoever the Jeopardy staff feels is right for the job I would definitely get behind, but Pat Kiernan does has some interesting similarities its hard to ignore. He's hosted the World Series of Pop Culture and Grand Slam, which is Jeopardy-like pacing, and happens to be Canadian as well. LeVar Burton ...

Re: Help with Wordplay

I can elaborate a bit more, the categories with quotes and those words will be in each response. Some may have a full word like "GREEN", which obviously makes it much easier, but the categories where each word starts with a single letter. I've perused the j-archive and I'm not sure if these word cat...

Help with Wordplay

I have a question for you guys that I saw on reddit and applies to me and maybe some others on here so I thought I'd ask. I am not great at wordplay. It's consistently one of my weaker categories so I wanted to ask you guys for any good suggestions to get better with that? Thanks!

We use the U.S. Dollar Too! Name ONE country that employs Dollarization, which is when a nation ONLY adopts the U.S. Dollar as its own currency. Not true. Dollarization is when a country adopts a foreign currency in place of their own, which may or may not be the US dollar. The US would not be a co...

TIL there’s a difference between weekly box office and weekend box office. I get "trivia", but how would anyone know which movie topped the list exactly once? Well that's why I came up with the question, most people know what movies had staying power, but how about the one-and-dones. This is a TD a...

Would you mind giving my submission a second look? I'm sure I answered the bonus question (and correctly, given the list of possible answers).
Apologies, I did have that but just didnt update your score, it has been changed.
