Re: Wednesday, April 1, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

A way to remember the provinces in order starting on the west coast is that the first letters spell BASMOQ.

Another Alberta/Saskatchewan neg. Leanne grabbing that last clue was a Pyrrhic victory as the carousel keeps spinning.

I was at the taping to root for Monya. She is a personal friend from O'Briens Pub Quiz. If she had taken the DDs in the opposite order, she would have won the game. I thought she played a good game, but luck was against her. Re: the golf-themed categories in single Jeopardy round - Alex introduced ...

Re: Tuesday, March 31, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Assuming they would accept postal codes, I got FJ written down in time. I didn’t fully grasp what they were going for. I did well in call letters except for the tower I have never heard of. It certainly isn’t the first landmark that comes to mind when one thinks of San Francisco. Poll request? I wen...

I would have put St. Andrews higher on the board. You don’t have to be a huge golf fan to have heard of it. A wedge requires some knowledge of the clubs. I had never seen or heard of that putting style but I got it. You could actually be the world’s biggest golf expert and not get it if you didn’t k...

Re: J! to Tape Without Live Audience

Trump has extended social distancing guidelines through the end of April. I really don’t see them having any more games this season.

Posting as requested. The game is archived: http://www.j-archive.com/showgame.php?game_id=6589 Though not proofread. Thank you for adding this. I was disappointed that the VP quotes didn’t include any nattering nabobs of negativism. But maybe we don’t need any negativity right now. The Masters them...

Had Honduras instead of Belize on Thursday, second-guessed myself with Eisenhower on Friday.

Had no clue what state I'm supposed to associate with Ringling.
The circus was headquartered in Florida so that was how I got it.

... I understand why the contestants saved the San Diego Zoo category for last because I was expecting it would be a video category that would waste a lot of time. That was my reaction this morning when I got the categories off J!6. "Oh, no, I'm gonna have to archive a bunch of long-winded Clue Cre...

Trump decided to sign the stimulus bill during the interviews so I had to play the rest from the archive. Good grief.

My coin landed the right way today. Hooray for me.

J..... And Evan didn’t even try to win the game. Looks like Evan assumed Susan would make the normal cover wager, which would have dropped her to 5199, and Evan left himself with 5201. That part of it makes sense - he was just thwarted by a lower-than-expected wager from Susan. You have to factor A...

Playwright Terrence McNally has died at 81 due to complications from COVID-19. McNally won 4 Tony awards - two for books for musicals, “Kiss of the Spider Woman” (1993) and “Ragtime” (1998), and two for plays, “Love! Valour! Compassion!” (1995) and “Master Class” (1996) Is he the first person of no...

I precalled Lend-Lease. I wasn’t a fan of letting the and slide, but no biggie. It got her an extra $1000 rather than a guy who already won a bundle.

I had a US history professor in college who mentioned it being bill 1776.

Re: Monday, March 23, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I sort of precalled this FJ after seeing the category. I recall reading an interview with Lear and he said Archie Bunker would definitely be a Trump supporter. I thought that might be used as a FJ clue, but that would probably be crossing a political line they don’t want to cross. I guess Meathead w...

Re: Monday, March 23, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

With the category “1970s Sitcoms”, I am betting it all. I am taking money out of my wallet and throwing it on the podium. I am passing the collection plate to let the audience in on the action. After suffering through a number of recent TV categories with shows I have never seen or even heard of, th...
