Re: JBoard games

The person who ran the SHC decided to stop doing it due to the time it takes. A few people kept it going for a couple years but it fizzled out. It is a major time investment, much more so than a regular game.

Re: New old games in the J! Archive

The FJ guy’s dirty little secret came out in 1986, so they should have been aware of him even if they didn’t remember him at the UN. For that matter, UN Secretaries General should be on your short list study guide if you get the call and the list was even shorter 30 years ago. A $9,500 combined Cory...

For reruns after the ToC & (likely at some point during the summer) College Championship how do we convince the powers to show 3/20/03 & 3/21/03?
There are five missing games from S14-19. They could have a weeklong special.

Concentration with Hugh Downs was the first game show I remember watching.
We would watch after dinner when I was little. I was too young to follow along the matches but I enjoyed solving the rebuses.

Re: 2020 Current Events Discussion Thread

British singer Dame Vera Lynn has died at the age of 103. In other news, Olivia de Havilland turns 104 in a couple of weeks. And Beverly Cleary turned 104 a couple of months ago. Both women could easily provide material for their own category. My recommendation to the writers is don't wait until af...

Re: Poll on Boardies Covid-19 Impact

I do grocery resets for Publx so a mask is required for work. I don’t go out much but wear it if I think about it. I got dinner at Subway last night and made a point to wear one when I was ordering since I am close to the food others will be eating. I felt that was just good manners. But I generally...

Re: New old games in the J! Archive

Thanks. It was better than she made it sound and if I hadn’t known Alex threw her a curve I wouldn’t have noticed. But I am sure everyone feels their chat segment was worse than it looked.

Re: RIP Carl Reiner at 98

I'm not sure how easy it is to confirm this, but Carl Reiner might have been the last surviving cast member of It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World. From the Wikipedia article on the movie, I found two. Nicholas Georgiade had an uncredited role as a detective. He was born March 25, 1933. Barrie Chase wa...

Re: Reruns to start May 4th

It would be a pretty quick turnaround for those tournaments if they did rerun them. My comment about rerunning Episode 6 was meant as a joke, though it would be nice to see. I don’t know if they would want to rerun the whole first week. The first show was rerun after S25. The second episode would be...

Re: Reruns to start May 4th

July 20's rerun does not have an episode date listed yet, but my app says that July 21's rerun is the second episode of season 1 (September 11, 1984), the first game in the Trebek era to end with no winner. The episode is listed as "The First Decade". This could mean that they are rerunning the fir...
