Re: Thursday, January 24, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Seems a bit silly to expect contestants to know whether Tony Blair was born in 1953 or 1951.

Re: Request for information regarding an upcoming episode (POTENTIAL SPOILERS)

Alex: "How much of your $800 do you want to bet?"
Contestant: "Let's go with eight."
Alex: "OK, for $1600 if you are right, [clue appears]"
Contestant: "Oh, I actually meant 8 dollars, not 800 dollars."

Re: Friday, March 23, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

This is exhibit 1 where sometimes the leader should wager to tie an all-in wager from 2nd place. I'm not sure about that. Betting the extra dollar saves you from a tiebreaker if both you and 2nd place get FJ. The extra dollar costs you a tiebreaker if you miss, 2nd place misses and bets sufficientl...

I see it on Learned League sometimes when an opponent has ART as the worst category. It’s one of those areas like opera that can be a nightmare for some people. Ben’s wager of zero has me wondering if ART was the last thing he wanted to see? The response of Guernica demonstrates he at least knows a...

Precalled FJ; in fact, I would have laid heavy, heavy odds that Lebanon would be involved in the clue, and would have been sorely tempted to go all in even from a lock.
