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.

Re: Timing of Audition Invite Emails

Today I got THE CALL! In case this is pertinent: There are 0 players in J! Archive billed as being from Newfoundland. Assuming you're living there when you tape, you'll be the first to actually be introduced as from Newfoundland. And, of course, will be announced as from "Newfoundland, Canada," as ...

Re: Tuesday, June 19, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

Magna Carta for 1620 was a particularly bad guess. Kept confusing landlocked states for non-perimeter states, talked myself out of Arizona and the Dakotas because of that. Also fell for Ohio. FJ was an instaget. It seemed that he knew that was wrong but just said it because you should always say so...

Re: Thursday, May 31, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

Why on earth would anyone try to give the full "Dr. Strangelove" title? That is just begging for trouble. The only thing I can think of is maybe he had the recent "Sgt. Pepper" thing on the brain and thought he needed to be thorough. But I don't think the judges are that cruel.

I could have done without AT's condescending "you even pronounced it correctly" on the "Gerry" clue. You could tell he was just waiting for her to pronounce it with a soft "G" so he could correct her.

an interesting tidbit about that FJ question... Dimitry mentioned (on the LL message board) that "Alex told us after the game that the original clue as written had asked us to name both songs , which would have been much more challenging. They reviewed it that day and decided that asking us to writ...

Re: Wednesday, March 14, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

I hated the "perfect" category and the chiding reminder by Alex. It's not fair to ask contestants to go against their Jeopardy instincts and change the phrasing of their responses just to satisfy a gimmick category. At least they didn't penalize for it.

Re: Ties on Jeopardy! RIP

I know that L.A. traffic is horrible, but why would you need lodging in Culver City if you live only 40 miles away? I guess if the taping were first thing in the morning you'd want to be close to the studio, but if I could sleep in my own bed the night before a taping, I would want to. I'm not sure...

Re: Ties on Jeopardy! RIP

On all the contestant paperwork, Sony makes it very clear that contestants pay all expenses. Even if you're offered a taping day and make it out to the studio, there's no guarantee that you'll appear on the show. I figured that covered situations when people might show up drunk or belligerent, or m...

Re: Wednesday, February 28, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

Saw no reason why False for $200 was George over any other Seinfeld character. George was a sleazy schemer. And this is Seinfeld 101? Yeah. It's one of the most popular sitcoms of all time, and he was one of the three main characters (four, if you count Kramer). Agreed. Just curious -- is there any...

Re: Monday, January 22, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

This FJ! wasn't a geography clue. Unless you knew Russian (a good skill to have these days, it seems), it wasn't even a pure etymology clue. Instead, it was a clue about Jeopardy clues — as Mark stated, the entire clue became a set of tease-out instructions. As long as the contestant has faith that...

Re: Tuesday, January 2, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

I'm probably missing something obvious, but how did the show Arrested Development figure into those clues? A frequent trope in that show is the narrator immediately contradicting the previous line of dialogue, which was replicated in the clues by the parenthetical remarks in the second half. Thanks...

Re: Reretaken Down

Help me out here. I thought there was a Seinfeld episode where Kramer had an idea for pre-toasted bread. It's already toasted, you keep it in your freezer, and when you want some, you just pull a slice out and pop it in the toaster. "It skips a step." I was so sure of this that I tried to find a Yo...

Re: Wednesday, December 13, 2017 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

Does someone have the wording of the continuance/stay clue? I remember saying 'nope' to myself when she said 'stay'. $2000: To delay a trial you ask for one of these, but it can also mean to just keep going I think the reversal was appropriate. A stay is somewhat different from a continuance but in...
