Any thoughts on what this might mean for changes in the tone of the show?
The contestants will be seated in the audience until Johnny Gilbert hollers, "Come on down!!!"

Re: Holzhauer betting for 2nd in the TOC to make more money?

He's proved it can be done (at least against "regular game" competition). His two best games totaled $261,149. It would be tough, though. Those are his only two games that total more than 250K. His best game combined with his third-best game totaled "only" $249,943. I don't know how excited he'd be ...

Re: Friday, July 26, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I'm guessing Maggie got a bit confused and was conflating Andrea Doria with Enola Gay, yes? The misspelling (or too-hasty printing) of Gay as "Goy" at least gave Alex the set-up for his best one-liner in a long time, and a well-deserved laugh from the audience. Before Alex read her response, I read...

I couldn't remember if the Titanic was rescued by the Californian or the Carpathian, and chose wrong, omitting the n for good measure. Ditto. Right down to the missing "n". Remembered just as the think music ended that the Californian was closer, but simply watched the distress flares instead of re...

Re: Thursday, July 25, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I got FJ in about 15 seconds, but it's a clue that I may have blanked on if I had been under the lights. It was just a matter of picking out L.A. as the TOM. I was stationed in Germany 1975-1978 and missed out on a lot of the pop music of the era. I got as far as the Eagles, but couldn't ID "Hotel ...

I guess Tournament of Champions simply means that as long as someone won a single game they qualify if the producers want them back...they are a Jeopardy champion, and it isn't the Tournament of the Top Winning Champions.

I went with Daniel Defoe, knowing he was probably a few decades too late.
Same here. Fishing cabin -> solitude -> self-sufficient -> RC. Bruised my forehead at the reveal. On any other random day it probably would have been instant.

Re: Wednesday, July 10, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Curious if ANYONE missed the "Every Good Boy" mnemonic? Not a poll request, just chime in if you didn't get it. It would seem like a very oblique clue for anyone who's avoided traditional music training. It certainly is a YEKIOYD, even if it's easy for the 99% who know it. I'll avoid my soapbox abo...

Re: Tuesday, July 9, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I knew the correct FJ response had to be a historical rather than mythological figure. So that ruled out Achilles and Agamemnon. It also ruled out the guess I might have made anyway if I had remembered the guy's name--Aegeus, the father of Theseus. He famously threw himself off a cliff when he spot...

Re: Buzzer Timing - Anticipate or Wait?

During my at-home practice, I stood behind a chair and used the "pause" button on my remote as the ring-in buzzer. If I wanted to respond to the clue, I tried to freeze the frame just as AT finished speaking. If I paused, I had to answer and either got points or a deduction. If I didn't pause, it wa...

IGot FJ. Wonder what TPTB would've done if someone responded " What are Medusae"? :geek: It would have unquestionably been negged. Medusa's sisters were Stheno and Euryale.

Another "Jerry" here; have heard it both ways but regionally "Jerry" is much more common. Perhaps because we're inland and have little nautical nomenclature in local jargon.
