Re: LL80: LearnedLeague

I'm a little surprised Atari had the low get rate. With the popularity of classic gaming, I thought all ages would know who Nolan Bushnell is. I think you may be overestimate how popular it is. Still very much a niche thing. What percentage of people play video games of any kind? I bet it's conside...

Re: $0 FJ Wager Poll

Michael Dupée specifically says in his book that if you bet $0 in Final Jeopardy, you should not attempt the question, because otherwise, random people will ask you why you bet $0 on something you knew. It's not like it's all that difficult to explain it, though. Or you could just :roll: Or even ¯\...

Re: $0 FJ Wager Poll

For strategic reasons, you are making a $0 wager in Final Jeopardy, but then you know the correct question. What do you right down? We run into this periodically in pub trivia. We've got the lead going into the final question and, for strategic reasons, decide to bet zero. We still make a good fait...

Re: Millionaire 2018-19 Season Discussion [SPOILERS]

Judging by the increased discussion surrounding the show this season and the high quality of contestants, I suspect we'll see the show for at least a few more years, so I hope to see you both again in the near future! Actually, the most recent news I read indicated it was at risk of cancellation, u...

Re: Adult Online Test: Apr 9, 10, 11

I can only hope I do as well as I've done the past few years, but also get through the random selection afterward for the auditions. My luck, however, is abysmal. I'm curious to compare. Between 2009 and 2017, inclusive, I passed a J! online contestant quiz seven times without getting an invitation...

I understand if all you want to do is take the test and have no desire to be on the show, but if you want to be on, then why not? I've gone to many auditions, have been on two shows, and every time, they take/want your picture to go with the application. Saying no to putting up a picture is a sure ...

Just curious regarding those who do not want to post a picture: 1. Is your picture anywhere else on the internet? If no...interesting, but you have your reasons. If yes, then I just want to ask why not when applying for Jeopardy? I understand if all you want to do is take the test and have no desire...
