Re: Previous J! contestants: Did you track money in real time?

A great way to psych yourself out and lose is to keep looking at the toteboard every clue Yes. I'd rather try to get in a rhythm without regard to my relative position. It's not like I would try harder if I was way behind (which would probably be self-defeating). If one was far ahead I can see some...

Previous J! contestants: Did you track money in real time?

I'm curious if it is realistic to keep an accurate handle on your winnings during play. From the fourth podium, it seems that the show is fast paced enough that I would just have a general sense of "I'm in it", "I'm way behind", or "I'm way ahead", and would only be able to come to a more accurate a...

I'd defend Bianca by pointing out that if they had given her 'vex' the first time, she wouldn't have lost 2000 trying it a second time
Yes, I would have raised a protest.

Re: Wednesday, March 13, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Somehow my brain knew it was baseball but it kept jumping to Field of Dreams. It finally clicked in the waning seconds and I got the correct response, even though I did not know it was a book.

Judging from prior posts, I think there may be an illuminating "book vs. movie" poll question in there.

Re: TD 414 - The Academy Awards

i'm sorry, but I'm not getting question 9 at all. Are you looking for eg. any one best actress nominee, or a list of four best actress nominees? And is this question implied to be pinned to a particular year?

Good game today. Champ is playing good. Yes on FJ.

Re: Tuesday, March 5, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

The episode ended with a whimper instead of bang, and this led me to an idea for leveraging the "two-day total" thing a bit more: For the FJ! round, the player can continue to wager based on that day's winnings. But after that round there would be a MegaJeopardy! (tm) round where the team can wager ...

... but I'd say Vanna White really has it made. All she really does is have to look nice and touch the letters to light them up. Not to mention her job is completely unnecessary to the format of the game. But can you imagine the crushing anxiety, going to bed every night wondering if the next day w...

Re: $0 FJ Wager Poll

I'd be tempted to write something existential like "What is the meaning of life?" but when push comes to shove I am a showoff and would likely write the correct response. Plus, there is probably a site somewhere ;) that tracks % correct and stats like that, so I would want to put in my best showing.

Because obviously Alex Jacob knew this one. It was just a brain fart and came to him a second too late. There was no brain fart about it. My recollection from Alex's original shows is that he is very deliberate when responding to DDs, often taking a long time even for apparently WECIB questions. I ...

Re: Wednesday, February 20, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I don't have any complaints about the format nor the extended chat time with the contestants but boy, that episode really ended with a whimper. There was absolutely no sense of buildup or crescendo for the next day's game. I would have liked to have seen a brief wrap-up commentary or snippets from t...

Got to rubber about halfway into the think music, then it was only a matter of deciding between Goodyear and Goodrich. I wasn't sure there was actually someone named Goodyear and figured "B. F. Goodrich" sounded a lot like someone's name and went with that. I think I outsmarted myself on this one be...
