Re: Friday, November 23, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

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 ...

Re: The Official TPH Education Thread (POTENTIAL GAME DAY SPOILERS)

"Liquid gold" had me thinking of some valuable mineral or liquid and coming up blank. I could've taken 10,000 guesses and never come up with olive oil. How was this a triple get, and how exactly do you counterfeit olive oil? It's not like it's THAT valuable... When it comes to olive oil, place of o...

Anyone else just say oil? Gonna' guess that's not good enough.
I would not credit it; unmodified, I most naturally equate "oil" with "petroleum."

I assume "Ventilation" is okay on Roof for $400?
I counted it, along with "Karen Blixen" on the final clue of the round.

Re: Wednesday, October 3, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Doug mentioned on Reddit that he initially sang "Sweet Caroline," but was made to record the response in a normal speaking voice during the commercial break - seems it would have cost the show about $10,000 to license the relevant content. "St. Pierre" led me to western Europe on Final; with no lar...

I went down the “hyphenated names” road as well; I eliminated Daniel Day-Lewis early. Only one other hyphenated name came to mind, though - so despite a high level of confidence that Jan-Michael Vincent was not the correct response, onto the paper it went. Here’s an interview with Kirsten on NTV , t...

Re: I can’t be on J

Matt Bruce got as far as the green room, but knew Ken Jennings, who was still taping, and thus couldn't play, and then someone he knew started working on the show before he ever got his chance. Condolences. So then how were Scott Blish and Alex Jacob able to play each other!? My understanding is th...
