Re: Tuesday, October 16, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Gotta love the way Prairie looked for an early haymaker (age appropriate euphemism, lol). Too bad they didn't both hit their big wagers and cost the show another $18K with the payoff and the cover bet in FJ (or is it $12K? - I'm figuring the payout plus the doubling to cover?) It does seem like a ru...

Re: FJs for the 10/8/18 week

:mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :( :mrgreen: :( :( :( At least this week's near miss of the box of glory wasn't hijacked by a weird category name (I'm talking about you, hyphenate :evil: ). Another participation medal for me 8-) . The writers have been on a roll of clue writing with just enough TOM fo...

Re: Thursday, October 11, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I had never heard of an exophone before today's episode, but once I sussed the meaning out from the first clue, I was able to correctly pre-call Beckett as the DD. My susser never took hold and I wondered why AT didn't define the term before the game. I got my answer when the top box was revealed a...

Re: FJs for the 10/1/18 week

:mrgreen: :( :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: All four gets were WAGS. Great FJ clues that make that even possible. But the Hyphenate category was awful and shows writers don't recognize it is just jargon to normal people. It didn't cost my first Box of Glory as I wouldn't get it if you spotted me the ...

Re: Friday, October 5, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Incidentally, one of my co-workers was just telling me a couple days ago about a negative interaction he had with Pete Rose in Vegas last week. Can you share? Sorry, Cincy fans, I've always hated him. Nothing exciting. He was in a memorabilia shop and wouldn't so much as speak to anybody without th...

Re: Friday, October 5, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Really off my usual level of concentration in this game. I also negged Einstein when I knew full well it should have been Planck for quantum theory. I forget how the clue was worded, but it was not pinned to Planck without the "1900" year reference. That was the thing that made me think: "not Einst...

Re: TD 395 - KIRSTEN DUNST (FINAL RESULTS)

FG, Thanks for the bait and switch TD. When I saw the title I assumed it would be a pass for me. You managed to plug your heroine and still make a fun game for us celebrity-phobes. A top ten finish is unusual for me, maybe I'll use a drop sometime to score better, but I usually have more negs than s...

Re: Wednesday, September 26, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Just dropping in from Europe to lead off with a neg on FJ to balance the first 9 posters here and keep MB's forecast at 90%. I'm well aware there is a female novelist that has written an alphabet-based series. I was unaware of the fact a) she died, and b) her last tome was "Y", and 3) her actual nam...

And if not for ____________ I'd have a 5-for-5 FJ week. Oh well, perfection is an illusion. Spoiler alert - you might edit and hide your nemesis answer. Sometimes we catch up out of order. Didn't hurt me as I wouldn't have got it either, even with my time machine. Just playing the FJ clues from the...

Re: Monday, September 17, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

The last DD was an amazing clue to me, and not in a positive sense. I guess you're supposed to know that the US flag has 13 stripes (duh). And you learned long ago that for a while the country thought of adding a star AND a stripe for each new state, until they realized how unwieldy the flag might ...

Re: Summer Hiatus Challenge 2018--Medal ceremony

Thanks to Rjaguar and the team with the broad shoulders. The writing was excellent and I hope to chip in next season with a couple of categories. This was a nice guilty pleasure and now it's time for a new rhythm and rut. Even though I'm a real low scorer, it is cathartic to click around and see oth...

Re: Friday, September 14, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Will Alex have a beard next week or the votes will already be in? I'll take the over at 99% that AT has a beard on next week's shows. But if he does have a time machine he should go back and give that boy credit for the "Emancipatation Proclamation" (or whatever it was). So they will have to preten...

Re: Wednesday, September 12, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

It's nice to see big paydays. It would be nicer to see a pay raise for 2nd and 3rd. Why do they continue to exploit the players - do they think they are the NCAA? I loved the early interaction with Lori about letting the other contestants have a turn. She must have been impressive in her tryouts. In...

Re: Tuesday, September 11, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I might as well have repeated yesterday's FJ answer Brazil . Never heard of it and couldn't produce any good wrong answers. So far this sucker is over 90% I think. Surprisingly, the Beard is OK. But don't go back to the 'stache. I was rooting against the beard sight unseen just because - enough with...

TIL I learned two things: a) What TIL means (in spite of the mangled opening syntax :lol: ) 2) The show is back on and the hiatus is over. Time to reset the evening dinnertime rhythm. I dread seeing the hirsute AT tomorrow. Maybe I'll just skip this week. Not! FJ (from here on the board): Easy get a...

Re: Jeopardy All-Star Games

I'll watch, but I think TPTB are trying way to hard with this. And in the end, it just means that there are now 20 less spots for contestants up for grabs this year. I feel as though the few hundred people who look at JBoard aren't really the target audience here. That being said, I'm legit excited...
