Re: New old games in the J! Archive

Can anyone work out what Lisa says after "What is Caesarian calendar?" at around 7:50? Sounds like her answer was "What is Caesarian calendar, or just Caesar?" , as if she wasn't sure if they wanted the calendar or the ruler. Don't think I've heard that particular wrong answer before. It almost sou...

You learned something and acknowledged you were wrong. A rare thing on the internet.

Re: 2018 Current Events Study Guide

As part of the country's festivities for the 50th anniversary of its independence from the UK, the king of Swaziland, Mswati III announced that the country would be changing its name to "eSwatini". I looked this up and read that he said one of the reasons he did this was because many people confuse...

Re: Friday, April 20, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

I was stuck for a bit trying to think of someone French or in King Arthur’s gang. Then I expanded my thinking a bit for a knight with an imagination to sweep the week and go 8-2 for the tournament.

The students went 17-12 for the two weeks, not counting Dhruv’s joke answer today.

Re: Thursday, April 19, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

Overzealous fast forwarding spoiled the results of FJ as I could see it was a TS. But I did not see the responses, so I could still play along. I was prepared for a toughie, but I got it pretty quickly. I guess it helps if you know it was established during the Civil War. It is on land once owned by...

I thought Alex's comment was in reaction to this thread. https://jboard.tv/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=4639 It was funny when the Georgia Tech guy got the clue about the lyrics to Alabama's fight song. Bama and Tech were in the same conference for many years and were bitter rivals. Tech left the SEC in 1964...

As I said in the game thread, I thought it was set in England. But the date left me with only one choice.

Re: Fun with GSN's "Winsanity"

I am right there with you in having at least three right without taking a breath. Playing along here, I went 5/5, but I wouldn't have needed more than two turns to get it right no matter what.

Instead of thinking about immortal warriors, think about a kid who survived some crazy high-failure experiment his mom tried.
I didn't know that part of the Achilles story though, that there were failed attempts before him.
Neither did I. But I still got FJ right.

Re: POLL: A Hypothesis about Auditions

I was suggesting something slightly different--not picking the players based on a game's questions, but picking the questions based on the players, or a player. I am certain that they know by now how they could get rid of me as a contestant if I was not going over well with the TV audience. (Perhap...

Re: POLL: A Hypothesis about Auditions

They do not want to go to jail and have their cash machine shut down. The games are honest.

I once knew a guy who was certain Wheel was rigged because the wheel would suddenly slow down. I guess the concept of editing out things never occurred to him.

I didn’t know anything about his family, but the bit about his mother wanting to make him immortal made it obvious.

Rebecca’s slip-up on heart/kidney gave away the lead. Then her all-in bet on FJ gave Jordan a chance to win.

I misunderstood the clue to mean only one State was named for a woman and Virginia was the first to come to mind so I didn’t spend any time trying to think of another state. Oh, well.

Never heard of Harry’s museum. I wonder if Carsen got hung up on the palace in going with Versailles.

I went with the obvious and was home free.
