Re: Tuesday, November 21, 2017 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

If "Sgt. Pepper" is an acceptible answer, then there is no question Wilbur's answer should be accepted. He gave additional info which wasn't wrong. Now if the complete title was necessary, ok then. Just say so. :| The affected contestant has so said: I asked. The judges wanted the complete album ti...

Re: Tuesday, November 21, 2017 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

I made the mistake of looking at Twitter. Some people are even alleging racism. I'm guessing they're not regular viewers because otherwise they would know that right or wrong, the rulebook was followed in tonight's episode. They are racist but a non-Caucasian woman won. therefore, no charges of rac...

Re: Tuesday, November 21, 2017 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

As expected, there's a riot on the official Facebook page, with people claiming that Wilbur got "robbed" [sic]. Well, I let them in on a little secret: The "response must be completed in time" rule has been in place since March of 1964. That also explains why Wilbur M. lost $MMM. In short, I told t...

Re: Tuesday, November 21, 2017 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

His story was about preparing for the zombie apocalypse. Just me, but I was very underwhelmed by his story after the buildup. The question is whether the judges would have taken just the first two words? I imagine that would have flown since the precedent is yes, from this game: http://www.j-archiv...

Re: Projecting When the Next ToC Competition Might Take Place

In the category of grain of salt, Alex in his 11/20 opening talked about the players wanting to qualify for next year's tournament of champions. I am aware you say grain of salt, but Alex is also the same guy who quipped shortly before this ToC started that the tourney would feature the best player...

Your spelling is correct. All three of them got it wrong.
Thanks. I didn’t think it had one but was too lazy to look it up.

Alex was doomed when she corrected Alex.

You did fine, Kara. One clue going the other way and you are a two-day champ. Congratulations on doing better than I ever will.

Re: Projecting When the Next ToC Competition Might Take Place

Assuming that Alex retires in 2020, do you think they'd want the ToC earlier in 2019 so that there would be two before he goes, or would they have it in the fall of 2019 and then the big "Alex Retirement Tournament" taking up most of the rest of the season, if they'd want a tournament like that? I ...

Re: Friday, November 17, 2017 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

I knew we were getting wordplay for FJ. I breezed through Maine and NH but never stopped in Bernie’s home.

I didn’t have a strong rooting interest so I was fine with Buzzy winning. It was a fun TOC but the finals weren’t as strong as I had expected, though they were still exciting.

Re: Thursday, November 16, 2017 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

Due to work and other real life irritations, I wasn't able to see the game until just now. So I turned on my DVR and saw the first segment was pre-empted on my local station so they could carry a Roy Moore press conference. Now I'm definitely not voting for him. Thanks to the reddit guy for saving m...

Barbara Lowe is 5-0 in her Jeopardy career. I hope this doesn't sound bad what I am about to say. I was hoping Cindy Stowell would keep winning until one day Alex came on at the beginning and said she had to withdraw due to her illness. It would have been great if a player as strong and courageous a...

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

I got magnet school but not solar winds. I wasn't certain Portugal had a monarchy in the past but the person being born in Brazil seemed like a big hint it was Portugal.
