Re: Thursday, June 6, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I was rooting for Emma to lose. Unfortunately, the woman from Alabama I was rooting for to win also lost.

I got Guthrie from the Okie connection and added a W in front of his surname.

Because Alex is more of a badass than Pat.

I had France in FJ, thinking they changed after Hitler took over in 1940.

I loved Emma's expression when Alex insinuated that doubling up on the J! Round DD must have been "taking inspiration" from James. I don't think that was his innovation, Trebek.
Seeing as she has never seen him play a DD, it would be impossible for her to follow his lead.

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

I think TPH overdoes it a bit on poll requests, but I think the only missed clue in this game begs for a spot on the weekly poll. (I will not be checking the box).

Re: Monday, June 3, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I suspected James would bet what he did in FJ. Can you imagine the uproar if Emma had bet to stay above that total in case of a miss?

While many of us are mourning today's regicide, let's give major props to the new reigning champion Emma. She played significantly better than Nancy Zerg did in Ken's game 75.
Ken lost to Nancy. Emma beat James.

Big difference.

I'm curious how many here came up with Elizabeth I's death year. I certainly did not. I ran the dates category. I knew Elizabeth thanks to TPH. Sometime ago, there was a clue related to her death and he said he didn’t know how we should know that. It motivated me to look it up and I retained the in...

Re: New old games in the J! Archive

Tissue paper is all I have ever heard.

The bottom sports clue was tricky. The pommel horse is for men only and it appears to require a great amount of strength.

Re: Thursday, May 30, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Germany seemed too obvious so I went with James' response. Right thinking. I thought it was a silly FJ clue. Germany is an obvious trap, so what else could it be? Plus, Haydn was Austrian. Suprisingly suboptimal $5,000 DD wager by James. If he thought he wouldn't get it, why not wager $5? A little ...

Germany seemed too obvious so I went with James' response. Stradivarius was on the bottom row given "Italian violin master"? Why was beach volleyball accepted when it was specifically stated in the question it wasn't what they wanted? A little surprised James said manager in the Babe Ruth category. ...

Re: Wednesday, May 29, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

James now needs $196,730 to break Ken’s record. If he keeps his current average through the end of the season (which I think is 62 games), he has $4,802,873.

The only thing that came to mind was Frankenstein but didn’t put it down. TPH is rubbing off on me.

I asked in yesterday’s thread about most correct responses without a miss when they went 61/61 including FJ. Cheezyguy (THANKS!!!) told me it had happened last Tuesday as well. They had a chance to match that again until Jim Bob’s FJ miss. Both challengers looked like they could have won a couple ga...

I can see the players missing Aunt Lydia, but there's really no excuse for missing Janelle Monáe. She's too famous now. Sorry, no excuse.
Never heard of her.
