Re: Thursday, February 28, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

That Three Gorges DD was a killer (I've been near there - admittedly decades ago - and I had no idea what the clue was asking for). The Solomon DD was pretty difficult too. Both of them needed puzzling out, and Colby was so fantastic to watch as he did it. I got to Three Gorges Dam, but then figure...

what a waste of en episode...too much jibber jabbering...did they really need to go to a break, come back and interview and then go to another break? about as bad as an american football game...pure dull crap without much action [sarcasm] Look at the bright side: they got all 30 clues in.

Re: Jeopardy All-Star Games

Right, their game, their rules. But I am inclined to agree that the two aspects of Final ought to be inseparable and if one is played by only one player then the other should be, too. If teams actually got a chance to consult after seeing the Final category, that means they could also play mental M...

Re: Thursday, February 14, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Frankly, I don't remember Brownsville in particular coming up in the whole border story. I feel like I might have come up with it if it didn't have that part in the clue, but I focused on that part, and kept coming out in Arizona instead of Texas. I once walked across the bridge from Brownsville to...

If he's referring to John Wayne, I'd guess it would be due to the shortness of the runways there. A 757 would have to take off much quicker t...

I got "The Handmaid's Tale" but I began writing with only about 5 seconds left in the music, not enough time to write it all down! I would have been ruled incorrect because the pen would have turned off before I completed it. If I had written "What is" while I was stumped I probably could have comp...

Re: Wednesday, February 6, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I found the Nixon clue confusing. I know the dog's name and that speech well (and can pull the "Republican cloth coat" with slightly more difficulty) but the reference here was murky enough that I was thinking about whether they meant a State of the Union speech or something along those lines. Then...
