Re: Tuesday, November 21, 2017 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

If "Sgt. Pepper" is an acceptible answer, then there is no question Wilbur's answer should be accepted. He gave additional info which wasn't wrong. Now if the complete title was necessary, ok then. Just say so. :| The affected contestant has so said: I asked. The judges wanted the complete album ti...

Re: Projecting When the Next ToC Competition Might Take Place

This thread seems like a good place to drop a link to the newest of my J! pages: consolidated ToC data . Relevant to this discussion, among the included data are numbers of games of ToC qualifying periods, and breakdowns of winners of 6+, 5, 4, and 3 games plus tournament winners. The just concluded...

Re: Thursday, November 9, 2017 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

So yeah, the wording on FJ confused me but I saw it said "this state" so I guessed Iowa. Not familiar with the apple-selling, although if I had known apples I absolutely would have guessed Washington. Also knew none of the DDs today.

Anyone know what the blue ribbons represent?
Dark blue is the color of colon cancer awareness, in honor of the 16th player who didn't make it to Culver City for this event. They're Jason's idea.

Hey Scarlett here, just signed up for the boards to post in this topic. Where on earth does it air early enough for there to already be results up? The earliest airing in in Montgomery, AL, which is at 9:30 AM. For the record: this is 9:30 AM Central (10:30 AM Eastern). Here's a comprehensive list ...

Re: Wednesday, October 11, 2017 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

I started tonight off with a joke that might resonate with those having long memories of a certain era - one that I had to walk back a bit after Johnny spoke. Brian is the given name of "Kato" Kaelin, houseguest of O.J. Simpson on the infamous night of 1994-06-12. For the money list it’s: Ken Jennin...

Re: smallest hometown of a contestant

Given my profession and avocation, that's some fascinating stuff, Matt. Thank you. Is there somewhere to find the over/under-representation percentages? I can put it together, but I'm curious if you have it readily available. I'm really not surprised about DC at all. Ask and ye shall receive! I exp...

Re: smallest hometown of a contestant

What are you saying here? I think he's missing a "no longer". But I'll let badgerfellow confirm. Apologies for not being clearer. You are no longer allowed to say where you are originally from, just where you currently reside. I always thought that was a ploy by the J! folks to obscure how many Cal...

Re: Friday, September 15, 2017 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

Judges: opiate vs opioid? I felt like the clue was hinting at both opium-derived and synthetic stuff, which I thought fit 'opioid' better, but opiate was the accepted response. Short answer: yes, I'd accept "opioid." But it gets a bit more involved... The clue, in full: Codeine, methadone & Demerol...

$26,400 - 34 R, 0 W, :mrgreen:. It only took two games for J! to have enough time to run a full roll of the staff credits. And said roll included a production assistant named "Nicky Trebek"! I wonder what, if any, relationship exists. (I knew on sight it wasn't either of Alex's kids.) Lord Byron fo...
