I assume "dulcet" is a no-go on Speak Softly for $600?
FWIW, I also said "dulcet"
I also had "dulcet"
A fourth for dulcet

Re: Friday, October 11, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

so you are saying the woman who won today's episode has zero chance of going deep? That is not at all what I said, or think. Anyone has a chance. Just the early firepower from Lindsey had a different feel to it. No offense in the slightest to Susan, who clearly has the chops to have hung in there d...

Re: Friday, October 11, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Lindsay just looked really upset, and can't blame her with the early dominance it looked like she had. She just couldn't keep it rolling on the buzzer and then got tentative on the DD too. Sad, because I feel like we are way past due for another female superchampion.

Re: Thursday, October 3, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I had to sort through my mental catalogue to see if there was anything else it could possibly be. I came up with the right answer instantly and spent the rest of the time trying to think of anything else to possibly consider, and came up with Tornado Alley but quickly dismissed it. Coryat: 33,400

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

This was an instaget for me, but the Eagles are my favorite band. Hotel the song I think has been discussed pretty widely as being about fame and the Hollywood scene, but I understand why this will probably poll low, and am not sure if there was another intended way to tease this out without just ou...

that is certainly possible, but isn't the male/female portion of the registration process only in the past (maybe) two years?
Hmmm good point. Possibly? Can’t quite remember now but I think it was for both tests I took, which would go back to 2016 at least.

Re: Jeopardy 2019 North American Audition Tour

My girlfriend took the online test 3 times since 2013 and has gotten auditions all 3 times Has this happened to anyone else? I am truly of the belief that the audition selection is not actually random, as they allege. I am also female, and have gotten auditions out of both tests I took and passed, ...

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...

I took too long to realize they were not looking for something in or around Africa too, and by the time I got to the general region all I could spit out in time with the right amount of letters was Indonesia, which I realized made no sense.

Re: Jeopardy 2019 North American Audition Tour

I'm really curious to know how much harder this second test is! I know you can't share the questions, but do you think the questions were fair game? Were they all $2,000 level clues? I believe the test was fair. I'm probably exaggerating that I didn't pass, though I think there's definitely a few q...

Yeah I don’t think the 2 tests thing is likely to occur in many other auditions.

Re: Jeopardy 2019 North American Audition Tour

I’d be lucky to have passed the 2nd. Several questions in my extreme weak spots and the first half I had so many blank/guessed that I basically just laughed it off while being thankful I got probably around 45 on the first. My group today was 21 people, and there were also 21 in another room concurr...

Re: Jeopardy 2019 North American Audition Tour

I was at the final Boston session today, and we were given 2 written tests, and told that one was basically a guinea pig run for a future online test. They told us they would only count our highest score out of the 2. The second was considerably harder in my opinion and that of others I talked to.

South America being in the clue should have immediately dissuaded anyone from saying Americium, but I also read too quickly to pick that up on the first glance. I was a chemistry major for 3 years in college before deciding I was no longer interested and switching, and while I definitely do not have...

Re: Wednesday, April 24, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Wayne kept one DD away from James though not nearly enough to affect the result. Wayne had a tactical error in calling another clue in a category in which a DD had already been played. Tsk tsk as a player cannot do that one. I literally shouted “no!!” every time Wayne went back to the science categ...

For some reason wine no longer agrees with me, so I will have to go right for the hard alcohol.
