Re: Monday, February 11, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I happened across this article on the new champ: https://news.rutgers.edu/rutgers-alumnus-jeopardy-champion/20190211?utm_source=newsletter&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=rutgerstoday#.XGMpO7lYYpd I'm sure some of us will appreciate this: "It became a matter of buzzing in at the right time," he says. ...

Re: Tuesday, January 15, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

It may be good, but does a 5 year old record really count as a “classic album”?

Re: Tuesday, December 18, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Aside from Jackie's current run (and celebrity games), has there ever been a better chance of a contestant herself being the response/subject of a clue in a game she was playing? The Runaways appear in the archive a few times (the clue on June 21, 2017 even named many of the band members, but not J...

Re: Thursday, December 20, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

The “In God We Trust” clue mentioned the “7th District Court.” There is no such thing, at least on the federal level. I think the writers meant the Eighth Circuit Court of Appeals, which is the court that issued the recent ruling.

2019 inductees into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame: Janet Jackson, the Cure, Def Leppard, Stevie Nicks, Radiohead, Roxy Music, and the Zombies. Nicks becomes the first woman to be inducted a second time, her first was as a member of Fleetwood Mac in 1998. I don't know which is more "wtf"-worthy, th...

Re: Thursday, December 6, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

That was one ugly J! round as the players were slow to get untracked. Given my previous post in this thread, perhaps I shouldn't make this comment. To me, "untracked" is a negative thing, as in "derailed". Perhaps you meant "on track". Or perhaps the language is changing again without my knowledge ...

Re: Thursday, October 18, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

FWIW, I pronounce the L in all of those words except for Calf. Also FWIW, at times I can be insufferably pedantic. Me too, on both counts. I also had a problem with saying that "Loki" and "low-key" are homonyms. I suppose one could emphasize the first syllable in "low-key" to make the clue work, bu...

Re: Monday, October 15, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

"Black and Tan" cost me the run in "Black", swift (can't say I've heard of it) in Roost-ers, and "Woman Crush Wednesday" (dafuq) in Abbrev. Here's a helpful tip: never order a "Black and Tan" in an Irish pub. If the bartender is a true Irishman you will get a harsh glare at the very least. Order a ...

Re: Tuesday, October 16, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Tombaugh meant nothing to me. The clue initially left me blank; I was trying to connect something in the solar system to Norse mythology and kept coming up empty. First wrote down "moon" just to have something and then at the last possible moment said "aw, heck" and shifted gears correctly on the b...

Re: Monday, October 15, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I am proud of the fact I only got "Empire Strikes Back" in the Star Wars category. Seriously? An entire category on a mediocre sci-fi franchise that peaked with Episode IV (the origional) and has regressed consistently since? Low hanging troll bait. We've all got things we don't like in pop culture...

I got Guillotin without the E. :geek: I didn’t (I said Robespierre) but I dislike the “executive decision” to accept a response that is 100% wrong. Well, I guarantee that there would have been an uproar if they didn't take all 3 answers as being correct. I'd say that without the executive decision,...

8. A GAME FROM ATARI
Identify one of these classic Atari video games
I don't think all of these were made by Atari. For example, I believe Donkey Kong was Nintendo.

It was interesting that they called Noel a man's name. The first Noel I thought of was Noel Neill.
