Re: Monday, November 28, 2016 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

You've got mostly the right idea, but wagering to catch up to first place is a bad idea if they lead you by an amount at least half your score but more than a third of your score. In that situation, the standard wager from first place is enough to drop them behind you if they're wrong, but if you w...

Galatians 1:8-9King James Version (KJV) 8 But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed. 9 As we said before, so say I now again, if any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him...

Oh, and I totally got the Button Gwinnett question because of Stephen Colbert and Lin-Manuel Miranda!

On a different note, as a person who has been dealing with colorectal cancer myself for 9 years, I was glad to hear that Cindy got this chance. As I watched today (on my DVR), I was sad to see how frail she looked. Cancer sucks, and the treatment can often be as debilitating as the disease. I am gla...

Re: Tuesday, December 13, 2016 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

Anyone else noticed they said "1st Century B.C." on the Apostle Paul question? It should have been 1st Century A.D. I would have rang in for Paul based on "epistle apostle", but the date caused serious hesitation. Good catch. I didn't notice it, but the editors definitely should have. That's a majo...

Re: Tuesday, November 29, 2016 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

Two days in a row of bad wagering from third place. This time it didn't really cost Jennifer, because she got second place (her best option with a correct answer by Justin and a reasonable wager), but she gave herself zero chance of winning for no reason. I'm at a loss for what made her think that h...

Paul Revere was a silversmith? Yeah, he actually created a rather famous silver etching of the Boston Massacre, which inaccurately showed the British soldiers being ordered to fire into a peaceful crowd. Why was it inaccurate? Well, first of all Revere wasn't there, arriving in Boston days later an...

Re: Monday, November 28, 2016 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

That was a great discussion of the wagering, which absolutely drove me crazy as I was watching my backlog of Jeopardy episodes on my Tivo. After the teen tournament where the second place contestant was somehow unable to figure out that he was going to lose when the kid in the lead got his FJ correc...
