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...

Re: TD 392 - Mini-TD - FINAL STANDINGS

This was fun and very cleverly designed. The trivia pursuit question was awesome - like the third level of a video game where the shit hits the fan. Several of us didn't see what hit us. Gotta be 30 years since I've seen that game. It was great fun to play until all the cards have been seen and then...

On the other hand, apparently I'm the only one so far to muck up the Revolutionary War battle question. :( That was then, this is now -- you're no longer the only one. I would have out-mucked all of you with my reply of New Orleans - I blame Johnny Horton! (from memory) - "Old Hick'ry said we could...

This was a nice week. If I understand there is one more week for us bottom dwellers then a few rounds with the chosen ones? I've tried to concoct a category to contribute, and IT'S HARD!! Something simple in a "Uncommon Sense" and I have gridlocked because a) most wind up as binary true/false choice...
