Thank you, archivists, for the quick posting of the game. J! was pre-empted in my area for the All-Star game.
Same pre-emption here, and I enthusiastically second the appreciation for the archivists.

BTW, I think your listed JBoard handle in the archive is incorrect.

Thanks much. Didn't know about and wouldn't have known how to fix it!

Re: TD 388 - Mystery Theme! - Q1 revealed

F - Lenore — Singleton! squarekara Good on ye, Kara! "Lenore" was the first thing that popped into my head, followed by "wait, she's IN "The Raven," but not in the title, I'd better go somewhere else." Didn't know there was another poem with her name as the title. Darn TDs -- they make me keep lear...

Re: Monday, July 16, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I had never heard of Black forest cake, either. I negged with "German chocolate cake," though seeing the word "kirsch" in the clue realized I was wrong unless every German chocolate cake I had ever had was a bastardization of the real thing. I was a trifle surprised it didn't get a BMS, though I gu...

Re: Monday, July 16, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Didn't recognize anything in Magic or Castle. Cake seemed like a tough category too. Black forest?! Ran the "Me Me" and Celebrity categories. "Infantryman" seemed tough for the top box. Yet again I blank on college in RI = Brown. Why couldn't they call it something like Baffleburg to make it Hawley...

Re: Friday, July 13, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

Where do the contestants read the FJ clue from? Across the studio. You see it when the camera zooms in at the start of the music. I believe it's the TV in the last photo here? At least to give an idea of size and positioning. https://www.vanityfair.com/hollywood/2015/12/alex-trebek-stylist-phil-way...

Re: TD387 - morbeedo's Revenge - Final Results

Nasty but fun TD, and maybe my best finish ever. I'm flabbergasted "Kamchatka" went unused in the final question. I flipped a mental coin, and of course went with the 5-point answer instead of with what would have been a singleton. No Risk players in the group, forsooth? If had shaved those four po...

Re: TD 388 - Mystery Theme!

I hope I'm not the only one who simply couldn't figure out the theme. You're not (I generally suck at "What do these things have in common" questions. It's not how my mind thinks). Nope, you're not. I made a guess based on a vague and barely discernible hint of an iota of a possible tenuous connect...

Re: TD 388 - Mystery Theme!

One of the tougher ones, but a lot of fun. For several, after much head-scratching, I could only come up with two answers and had to make a hard choice. For others, I knew most if not all, and had to make a HARDER choice. In the end, though, I think I managed to sheep at least half of them. I propos...

Re: Thursday, July 12, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

This was a nice game and likable players. I'm terrible at faces, but Johanna sure looks like Cher to me, and not just the big hair. Either that or she looks like Ryan Seachrist from Morbeedo's TD ;). Well, if we're doing "Celebrity (Lookalike) Jeopardy!," then I need to chime in. A little bit in ap...

Re: Tuesday, July 10, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Am I crazy, or did Alex pronounce Cerasus with a hard c? That led me further away from the answer. He did, but that made it sound more like cherries than I was pronouncing it in my head from reading the clue in the NY Times. Even if I waited until hearing him say it, I would still have been thinkin...

Re: TD387 - morbeedo's Revenge - Q6 & Bonus Results

Q6: I think John Hurt was in Fahrenheit 451 and Ron Perlman was in Hellboy. the pic of Perlman kind of looks familiar. I have no idea about the CV of the rest of the anonymous C-list celebrities in Q6. No need to flame me, I know they never heard of me either :roll: Oof -- I saw the photo array, an...

Put me down as another who guessed True Value Hardware (founded 1948, headquarters in Chicago) for lack of anything better.
Same here, nothing else came to mind. I was vaguely aware there was a shopping channel called QVC, but never would have made the connection between the word and the initial.
