Re: Monday, September 14, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

It seems that at least tonight, there's no rust after thirteen weeks away; I put up a $32,400 Coryat, with 38 R / 2 W. But I was wrong-footed on that Final; "Michelangelo" and "angelic" pointed me toward the Vatican, albeit with very weak confidence because I know that thanks to the Lateran Treaties...

Re: Season 37 changes and predictions

Season 36 also featured the GOAT matches. While they weren’t part of the regular season, they did air alongside the regular games and were rerun during the shutdown. The places you go to see games that you miss on local TV will be quite popular on November 3. At least the show airs at 3:30 in my ma...

Re: Season 37 date?

Re: Season 37 date?

I just got an email saying September 14 and that the last two weeks of Season 36 are being rerun. That means it's confirmed. I cannot wait for September 14 and it's just two weeks away!

Re: J! archive glossary question

Some things I've noticed that could be updated as the archivists' time permits: The two tiebreakers in Season 35 (#8023, 2019-06-26 — 2019 Teen Tournament, semifinal 3; #8039, 2019-07-18 — second tiebreaker in regular play) are not listed in the "Tiebreaker Round" section. Additionally, the words "(...

Re: 2020 Current Events Discussion Thread

Rep. Guy Reschenthaler (R-PA) has introduced the TRAP Act (Time to Repeal an Archaic Policy Act of 2020), intended to repeal the Logan Act of 1789. Regardless of where you fall on the political spectrum, you've gotta marvel at how they come up with those acronyms. If they put half the time into the...

Jeopardy!'s 2018-19 contestants - where are they from?

Here's the full breakdown of players by Designated Market Area (DMA) for Season 35 . Also, a compariso...

No J! In NY due to football. I was living in Montreal in 1976, so that was easy. My recollection of Munich was jogged by watching part of The Little Drummer Girl on cable this week, in which the Munich massacre was referenced. Moscow was the one that didn’t immediately come to me, probably because ...

Re: What if they changed the tournament format so that the last-place finisher in the first day of the finals is elimina

If they want to treat this as a one hour final with four boards, they could at least let them bet Day 1 money in DD's and FJ. Interesting. Maybe Day 2 would be the Triple Jeopardy and Quadruple Jeopardy rounds. Clue values from $800 to $4000 in TJ and $1600 to $8000 in QJ. And maybe they can carry ...
