Re: reddit jeopardy done?

Has anyone had problems with CBS All Access lately? This evening, due to my recording via HD antenna once again being garbled, I've tried setting my Location Guard to 3 different cities to watch J! via this workaround, and each time instead of a live feed I've gotten the message "Sorry, your local ...

I had to cancel my Savannah audition at the last minute because I lost my job and couldn't afford to go. It was one of the worst feelings of my life.
Well that really sucks.

Next time, don’t be afraid to ask for help in such a situation...we might have got you there

Re: Quick Rules Q

Sounds like you are (the former, I mean). The paperwork has nothing of the ins and outs of a game of Jeopardy. If you are on a show and you choose to ignore these instructions, well that's a you problem. I find it interesting that both people you chose to lecture about supposedly not reading the ru...

Re: Quick Rules Q

I, for one, somewhat doubt that complete written rules covering all scenarios exist, and I especially doubt that they have existed since the start of the Trebek era. There are simply too many inconsistencies and uncertainties, as anyone who watches or archives old games can readily attest to. there...

Geez, people. Everybody get down off your hind legs. Nobody needs to do lecturing on either side here. The winner is the first person to back off and speak respectfully without waiting for the other side to do it. Do they also get to go first in DJ!? :lol: I don't know. I forgot to write the rules ...

That is not the case. what is the case?

Re: Quick Rules Q

I would think it would be the same tie-breaker rule as used to determine who gets $1000 and who gets $2000 if they tie before and after the final. I don't know the exact wording of the rule, but I think it's something like whoever gave the most recent correct answer is considered to be ahead (or ma...

It's the name of a golf course/street in Leawood, Kansas. I used to deliver mail in that neighborhood and loved the name.
was there railroad tracks there? Iron Horse was the name of a bar next to a set of tracks in my area.

I missed this thread when I first signed up. My name is for my 2 dogs of that time, and the Q in the middle is because I find it (sourly) amusing that, when picking up a prescription for a dog at a regular pharmacy, a veterinarian will insert a Q as a middle initial to identify the scrip is for a p...

Re: Jeopardy 2019 North American Audition Tour

And as for the Austin pub quiz audition in NYC, it did seem difficult to imagine TPTB skipping NYC for an entire year of auditions. I'm pretty sure that for the past several years, they have alternated Boston and NYC as an audition city. I used to be out of sync with that schedule, and there were s...

Re: Season 36 Changes & Predictions

New set? Not until there is a new host. Too expensive to do twice in a few years. Well, Jeopardy has been updating the set every few years: - 1984–1985 (red Jeopardy! logo) - 1985–1991 (gold and blue neon borders, white Jeopardy! logo during season 2, changed to gold from seasons 3-7, set backgroun...
