Re: Your prediction for GOAT tonight Jan. 14

I would like Brad to win the match tonight,
but would love for Ken to win it all the next night.

Instaget, and I'm not a literature person. A bit surprised is was a TS.
Instaget for me, also. (Played final from the recap.)
I was thinking it must be something else, since I could see that none of the players got it, but I had nothing more to offer...

Re: Thursday, October 31, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Re Final Jeopardy I misread the clue initially and thought they were looking for a book title; I immediately responded with East of Eden . :D Upon rereading, I realized they wanted the author, not the book title, and it was an easy leap to Steinbeck. (I read East of Eden many years ago, never read G...

Re: Monday, June 3, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

While many of us are mourning today's regicide, let's give major props to the new reigning champion Emma. She played significantly better than Nancy Zerg did in Ken's game 75. Mourning regicide? I don't get you (or anyone) calling James king of Jeopardy, and I am certainly not sad, au contraire. I'...

The show is starting to get boring. I recognize James is insanely good at what he's turned the game into, but I'm not sure it's necessarily what I want to watch.
Agree, and I usually enjoy watching a dominant player go on a long run. :|

Even with a couple stumbles, he was still unstoppable.

I can never remember which is VT and which is NH,

For me, an easy way to remember which is which: Vermont is somewhat V-shaped, while New Hampshire is not.

Re: What Determines For Whom You Root on Jeopardy?

I root for (in no particular order): Good-looking men, unless the guy is an a** or not deserving of a win I love a strong player and usually root for the reigning champion (unless I don't like that person's personality) - I always hope for a multi-day champ and would love to see someone win 20+ game...

FJ was an instaget, but kind of for the wrong reason(s). This is what I read in my head (I'm a notorious skimmer which sometimes works in my favor): FINAL JEOPARDY!

Re: Thursday, April 5, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

The FJ! clue is one where it could have been cut in half after “movie” and it’s still a solve. It’s fine to add more information to make the clue more interesting although I’ll be curious if the TV portion really helped anyone get it. My instinct is it only cements the correct response with assuran...

Re: Friday, March 16, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

My first thought on FJ was correct (Cerberus) but he is Hades's three-headed dog that guards the underworld, so wouldn't that be six ears?
The "both ears" really had me doubting my initial thought, but I had nothing else.

Anyone else follow my lead in thinking Amber was a name and not the substance?
But "amber" wasn't capitalized. If a name, I would think it would have been written with a capital "A".
Thy're all capitalized on the TV.
Oops. :oops:

Re: Wednesday, October 25, 2017 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

My husband and I are both big fans of Nan; does that make us "Nan fans"?
It must be nice to have a persona that reaches through a TV and grabs people.
I guess that is what we call "charisma".

Hubbie got Casey Jones, but we realized too late the clue was asking for occupation, not nick name.

I said egghead first, but not enough letters so went to cerebral.
Husband couldn't come up with anything better so he agreed it must be cerebral: oops...

"Highbrow" was never going to be considered, by either of us. :|
