Interested in being an Archivist for J! Archive

I have contributed many old games for the J! Archive since 2006.

How do I go about archiving "old" games that are not in the J! Archive without having to resort to using Microsoft Word and then emailing another Archivist?

2017 Tournament of Champions

We know that the 2017 Tournament of Champions will likely be held for November sweeps. But with three of the players in the field are from around the Cleveland area, I got to thinking that the upcoming TOC should be taped at either the Quicken Loans Arena or the I-X Center in Cleveland, so as to giv...

June 12, 1998: All but one category ended with -ATIONS (the lone exception was CRUSTACEANS).

Also the third regular season game with no winner (one player finished Double Jeopardy! with a negative score).

Full credits for S33

When will we have another full credit roll at the end of an episode this season? We have not had one for at least a month.

Re: Monday, March 13, 2017 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

Wow. I'm surprised at how well I did tonight. I could have had me a Coryat of at least 21,000 had I not clammed on that Daily Double about Rutgers. I had a lucky guess on the Daily Double on Antony and Cleopatra. I nearly ran the LITERATURE ACROSS AMERICA category, even though literature is not one ...

Re: Online Test Recap & Discussion (Eastern), October 4, 2016

36 again. Some of the clues were from the Pavlovian revival thread I studied prior to the test. Fortunately I got those ones right.

Don't know if TPTB will invite me to drive down to Pittsburgh to audition. If they do, I know just who to put myself up with for a couple of days.

Good game for me. Ran IN THE BASEBALL TEAM'S LINEUP in the Jeopardy! Round. Almost ran GAME SHOWS IN THE MOVIES, but I clammed on Ralph Fiennes. :x

Fell for the schmuck bait in Final, saying Teddy Roosevelt.

New J! box game available

When I was in my local Kmart yesterday, I came across the latest Jeopardy! box game. The design of the box is Season 29's logo. The game equipment almost reminds you of the early 1990s Tyco editions, but without Alex on the box. Kmart sells it for $15.99. Anyone else come across the game recently? I...

Re: Sports Jeopardy! EP. 26 (3-16-16) [Spoilers]

I got the fogey stumper about the Rams player, and I'm not even thirty yet. It might not have been a triple stumper if the clue mentioned his love of needlepoint or his job as a bodyguard. That Rams player was Rosey Grier, who played college football at Penn State under Rip Engle during the time Jo...

Last month around this time, I overheard my father telling my mother that my cousin Gabrielle, who lives in Kentucky, has been writing monthly letters to TPTB. In her monthly letters to TPTB, she claims that people with autism should be given a fair shake when they normally are not, and that I shoul...

Re: New old games in the J! Archive

It should be mentioned that Bruce Cox was the alternate for Super Jeopardy! in 1990. He attended all the tapings in case one of the 36 players in the field could not play.

Re: Monday, January 18, 2016 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

Randi should not have wagered a dollar in a prisoner's dilemma scenario. If she'd wagered nothing, she'd be the new champion. Instead, we get something that has not happened in regular play since June 12, 1998. Last time it happened, two players were tied for the lead and the third player (Marion Ar...

$14,600 for me today. 5 for 5 in THE 1990's.

Re: Monday, September 14, 2015 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

Not a bad way to start the new season for me. $15,600 was my score today (which helped by going 5 for 5 in DAYTIME TELEVISION).

Instaget Final.

Also, I love the new J!6 game. I chose my six categories, and I went a perfect 6 for 6!
