Re: So...what have we learned so far from James Holzhauer?

Yeah that Jeff Simon article is ridiculous. He has such a shitty take on the impressive amount of breadth-of-knowledge, consistent buzzer timing, and clue selection/wagering strategy that it takes to do what James Holzhauer has done and more or less insinuates that that particular makeup of his brai...

Re: Monday, April 8, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I have a feeling things are going to get interesting around here over the next few days/weeks, and not really in a good way. I think this weird, old thread is about to become relevant again: https://jboard.tv/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=5006 Jeez, did you even bother to read to the end of the thread you ci...

Re: Jeopardy on Netflix

Sorry to necro a thread, but what exactly is stopping them from putting the entirety of jeopardy on Netflix or another streaming platform. The rights issues for Audio/Video clips are a thing but I think we're rational enough to accept that some episodes may have clues that are altered or not shown d...

Re: Timing of Audition Invite Emails

Are there ever pre-audition meetups or threads about such? I'm hoping for a Detroit audition to float my way and it'd be cool to know a couple people in the waiting room.

Re: Reretaken Down

Slowly making my way through Jessica Jones (4 of ? complete) but one bit really ground my gears... Walks into a store, Jones asks for the cheapest whiskey they have. Next scene, bottle of Wild Turkey 101 proudly on product placement display. Wild Turkey 101 isn't even the cheapest Wild Turkey you c...

Re: An apology for last night

Miscommunications and the like happen. As someone very much into the ideals of modern high-level quizbowl myself, despite my current lack of ability to perform well at it, it's very possible to enjoy the various aspects of both. It's all good.

Re: Friday, November 20, 2015 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

I'm just as okay with Alex winning as I would've been with Matt winning, but I don't understand why this board always bends over backwards for Alex and does anything it can to disparage Matt. You all should be ashamed of yourselves, although at least you aren't as mean as those people on the Facebo...

https://pbs.twimg.com/media/CUNviE4WcAEyKnf.png This is the best thing. Final was definitely a coinflip between thinking "whose facial appearance would be a particular thing to note" for Man in the Iron Mask and "who was gone somewhere for a long time under harsh conditions to where it would have a...

Portal and Angry Birds. So this is a random aside, and as a new person I apologize for the one-post off topic derail, but there seems to be no PM function on this board that I know of or at least I can't access it yet, but on the topic of games, is your name by any chance a reference to the combina...

Re: Wednesday, November 18, 2015 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

That could have been an interesting game if Matt hadn't found the daily double and then made a very hubristic bet, or if he'd lost that bet. Must every large DD wager be 'hubristic'? I haven't pointed out anyone's hubris in months. Betting $8000 when you're at $12000 and your opponent has $6800 is ...
