Re: Learned League 76 - Official Thread

I'm ready for this! I play prussc in both AMagnolia and the private Rundle intheJundle on day 1 - as always she's my wife and trivia nemesis (5-2 in public rundles, worse overall). We will be playing on sketchy hotel wifi in the Caribbean as we take a long-awaited winter vacation next week. That wil...

Re: Adult tests March 6,7,8, teen test March 15

Cleveland and Detroit are about a 2 hour drive apart... weird to have auditions at both. They are both about the same distance from me. I think I'll pick Cleveland since I've never been there. ...if you're driving what, the Batmobile? Downtown to downtown is about 180 miles, and goes right past at ...

Re: Learned League 75 - Official Thread

Learned League registration closes in a week on February 14th. So, if anyone wants to organize private rundles, now would be a more opportune time to get started. Come one, come all!

Re: Timing of Audition Invite Emails

Through December 2012, I had been selected to audition for J! four out of the five times I was eligible. Since that time, I have scored 40+ on every online test I was eligible to take and have not been randomly chosen for a single audition, including Charlotte this year. Surely the odds must turn i...

Re: HQ Trivia

HQ has spawned a few clones. One of which is quite a treat. Its called "The Cash Show" . Just like HQ, you play 12 questions, but in The Cash Show, payouts begin at question six. The result is easier, smaller wins. The best part for HQ fans is that each episode is one half hour after HQ: 3:30pm ET ...

Re: On the subject of "No harm, no foul."

I could find only one game in the Archive that became a runaway due to a triple miss on the last clue of the DJ Round: February 9, 1989 — to which Alex remarked, "No, each of you lost the same amount of money.".

134-gen x 28-wall st 90-sports In the sports mini league I have DevineW - 8th overall in LL75, gaudy qpct, won two A rundles, yet to participate in a proctored event. Ready for the bloodbath.

Re: HQ Trivia

I had the first game where an extra life would have helped yesterday... Missed Q11 and knew Q12.

Considering the format, I think the questions are very well written. For now I'm happy to give them 15 minutes a day. I'm surprised they haven't tried to monetize yet though.

I turned on this game just before the final field goal and watched to the end with my kids. They are now football fans.

As the first one posting to have seen it : Manchester by the sea is an excellent movie - a great study of grief. It is sad, but not depressing.

While I didn't remember Amazon distributing Manchester by the Sea, I was fairly certain it wasn't produced by them because if Amazon (co)produced Manchester, someone from Amazon would have been up for sharing the Best Picture Oscar, and I know I would have remembered that. Well, maybe you would hav...

Either way Rebecca gets to play again even if she had no idea on the FJ! clue and was in no way thrown by the wording. Yeah, no kidding. Considering she didn't write anything down, I doubt she thought " Manchester by the Sea ? No, it was merely DISTRIBUTED by Amazon, not PRODUCED!" Welp, I, for one...

Re: Wednesday, January 10, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

If you are going to miss FJ based on the category, then wagering 0 is the most reasont bet, no matter what place you are in. If you have zero chance of answering correctly you wouldn't have been there in the first place. Zero wagers have merit in certain situations, this is not one of them. No smil...

What depths of hell did this FJ come from? Wordplay and current senators? yuck. I know there will be people on this board who will get it right, but on the show this FJ is a triple stumper nine times in ten.
