Re: 2019 Current Events Study Guide

I'm proud of myself; the previous week, I called that the elevator would be fixed in the finale. While they played it nicely, I thought it would make a good ending if they were all moving away, and as they left the building, the elevators doors opened. I will say that I did not notice that the tape...

Starting in the relegation zone yet again. Sigh.
I feel your pain, although I am just next-to-last this season.

Somehow I was unexpectedly promoted to D for this season. Maybe it will stick this time.

Re: Thursday, May 9, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

The last DD wager was not optimal. Admittedly not an easy decision. I can see three distinct fully defensible wagers: 1. Wager $5 and sit pat in FJ - if you think the WC cutoff will be fairly low. 2. Wager between $2,801 and 4000-ish. If you miss, wager a lot in FJ; if you get it, wager to cover or...

I guess you get a little more latitude in naming your kid if it is unlikely he will ever be king. Doubt great-granny signs off on Prince Archie if it is William’s first born.

Re: Monday, May 6, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

LOL at Alex mentioning James in his opening monologue, as if his last game had actually been played three days earlier. I didn't have a problem with Julia's wager, she has a decent shot at a WC if she is wrong and also locks out Mariah. I said Clark Kent instead of Superman just because. Instaget FJ.

Re: Friday, April 17, 2015 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

The sooner this arrogant dude loses, the better. It's extremely difficult to tell whether or not a person is arrogant judging only by their performance on a game show. This was the first thing I saw when I opened this and thought it was a comment about James. Didn’t realize it was a necrothread.

The amount he “lost” is a little over $2,000 a game. Not exactly dropping a bundle every time out.

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

Every single peson who has responded about this has told you exactly the opposite. It's not super obscure, it's not remotely obscure. I disagree. For a trivia devotee it is not obscure but for a "normal" person I think it is quite obscure. But as someone making the trek from the latter to the forme...

Re: How long were the "broadcast runs" for Julia Collins, David Madden, et al?

The first season ended on June 7, 1985 (a day after I graduated high school) with a player who won his second game. He lost in the S2 opener on September 9, 1985.

FJ was an instaget and I was surprised so many had NHOI. But I’ve been on the other end a number of times so it was just my lucky day. Mark mentioned Yogi Berra would have liked the fork in the road category. If he was watching the game with Mark Twain, I suspect he would not have liked his work bei...
