Re: TD 429 - All Music (First Quarter Standings Revealed)

It looks like I should have 5 points if the scores for questions 2 and 3 are accurate.

Ha, oops. Didn't even realize I made that mistake until just now. I blame my current marathon of Grace and Frankie on Netflix for that one.

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

I feel like I remember(possibly from this board?) Someone once saying that in certain finals, instructions are sometimes given pre final that simply a surname is not sufficient. Does anyone know or have any indication that this may have happened? I'm assuming simply Guthrie would not have been accep...

Re: Final Jeopardy! Clues

MOVIES From 1983-2015, five different actors have played the same character in movies sharing this word in the title. Don't think this is what your going for, but I think maybe Star or Wars would be a correct answer. David Prowse was the man in the suit in the original trilogy, in the prequel trilo...

Re: Tuesday, April 23, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

$1,155,000 for 15 games is $77,000 average. With $1,061,554 banked that has James needing $93,446 (and a win) tomorrow to hit the magical average. To even mention such hypotheticals would have seemed insane prior to James hitting the stage. I appreciate that you allowed for the possibility that Jam...

Wait and see. I can only imagine they don’t want to make any promises to anyone, but I’m sure they keep track of some people in exceptional scenarios. You did the right thing by emailing. Now you have to respect the “don’t call us, we’ll call you” rule. Good luck and do report back. I’m in a simila...

Re: A question about Coryat scoring...

The way I have always approached it is if I can't come up with the answer before the contestant's I will not count it. If you ever do appear on the show you will need to be answering the questions in real time, which is part of the training process of making your recall and/or wordplay processing qu...

Re: TD 417 - Short quiz on random trivia -- Final Standings

Thanks for hosting! I had just listened to the Omnibus podcast episode that featured Cochran as a subject, otherwise I doubt I would have been able to pull the name. This is my first non Oscars related TD win/co-win, so I'm sure I'll go back to my usual middling performances soon enough.

Got 36 myself taking it for fun, count me as one who read the Halogen clue as needing a 6 letter response, but without having anything better I put it down anyway and turned out to be right. Also put just Hoover for Hoovervilles as I have not heard of that term, so counting that wrong. Combine this ...

I remember during the all star games when Team Ken was discussing the possibility of going for a 2 day total of 6 figures just because they could safely do so. I remember thinking at the time that might be kind of fun and a little bummed that we now would probably never get a chance to see that. How...

James's run so far has reminded me of the Vosbergh era of Jeopardy!, and I love the relative lack of Lach trash. James is not only on pace to smash Austin Rodgers's record for most money won in the first five games, but he's also on pace to break Vosbergh benefactor Frank Spangenberg's record for f...
