Re: TD 410 - Iowa (Q1-Q9 revealed)

Wow, off to a great start so far. Slightly worried about my answers for tomorrow, and you never know how the bonuses will fall. Better enjoy the lead while it lasts! Looking forward to the climax of this TD!

Re: Millionaire 2018-19 Season Discussion [SPOILERS]

Congrats on playing a great game, Mara!
SpoilerShow
$30k = Seen Rudy (Ruettiger) but not the others. Leaned Mad Max for no reason, glad I was right!

$50k - Thought (correctly) of deer. Bob's book never occurred to me until seeing the previous posts.. guess it's been awhile.

Re: Thursday, January 17, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Thanks for the SJ link. Did not recognize Frank, but I do recall that game. Entertaining game for the most part, John was really sharp today. Interesting endgame play, but luckily for Frank holding that money back did not matter in the end. I wish John had snagged DD3, if for no other reason to see ...

Re: Wednesday, January 16, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Tack on another good 4-day champ to the ToC bubble. I think several of the 4x champs are capable of winning or otherwise making a deep tourney run, it's a shame they likely will not get a chance. Best of luck to Anneke with a long wait ahead. Picked up on Fletcher Christian like Jill, but couldn't d...

Re: Millionaire 2018-19 Season Discussion [SPOILERS]

Too bad for Neville, but that was good TV at least. I have no problem with that decision, though I'm not sure I would have done the same in his shoes. Can't play for big money if you can't get there first! Personally liked Heather 's set of questions playing along from home, I would have gotten each...

Re: Millionaire 2018-19 Season Discussion [SPOILERS]

Well, that episode certainly was ... different. There used to be at least a streak in the 40s every other year or so, but I don't remember any long ones recently. Jackie Bradley got up to 29 or 30 a couple years back for my Red Sox, and I remember Jimmy Rollins' 38 game streak between the end of 20...

Re: Thursday, January 10, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Any idea why the Boston CBS affiliate --- Channel 4 --- ran a "Jeopardy!" repeat tonight? Very weird. Probably a mix-up with the Saturday repeat game, which doesn't guarantee they'll put the show that should have run today in the Sat. slot. I'm off to Reddit to get the actual game. Reddit says that...

Apparently I'm glad I didn't watch on WBZ tonight. We have Fios and I try to watch WPRI's broadcast to avoid interruptions caused by Patriots All-Access or any other surprise pre-emptions from the Boston market. Bummed to see Jessica go - that two finger raise in the intro made me think of a certain...

Re: Wednesday, January 2, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Had this final very very quickly, and wrote just "Who is Milne" along with Jonathan. Nice work to put up nearly $20k without any DD help, he's a real good champ and I hope he hangs around a few more games. Unless there's a clue about The Monkees or Jesse and the Rippers , I am going to absolutely bl...

Re: The Official TPH Education Thread (POTENTIAL GAME DAY SPOILERS)

TPH, if you ever need reassurance of your trivial endeavors, watch Ken Jennings' TED talk (or watch it again, if you've already seen it). He explains the need for this better than anyone here could. I had two reasons to retain trivial bits. 1, I love to compete, when I started playing trivia games n...

Alex does not appear to be a reliable source for ToC speculation anything . FTFY LOL. Don't get my hopes up Uncle Alex! He's a great host and all, but his fact-checking leaves lots to be desired, on all fronts. A tad disappointed in the outcome of the Leahy clue, but at least Andrew and Ellie were ...

Andrew's Coryat was lower than I assumed it would be, but he was fantastic either way. Matched his incorrect Final response. Thanks for linking the Reddit thread, MB, would not have looked there until later. Best wishes for a speedy recovery, Jackie, and congrats on a great run! Might not matter in ...

Andy here. That was all buzzer timing at the end. Elana and Nicole deserve a lot of credit because they kept beating me to the punch and I was just bristling inside because I knew where the last DD was hiding. I was rattled and to be honest that might have been why I couldn't clear the cobwebs and ...

Another good game from all three players, congrats to Staci for closing it out at the end. Tough break for Nick falling out of the lead on the last clue with the wrong guess. Had Final down to Aida and Antony/Cleopatra, mentioning Ethiopia led me the right way. Fairly sure a younger me lost a simila...

Great game, tough break for Brian but the big DD bet was the right call. College sophomore here, and didn't get Zapruder either. Must have heard the name somewhere but that's not something I would have pulled in 30 seconds, at least right now. Maybe it will stick this time, though. 11th-grade US His...

Re: Millionaire 2018-19 Season Discussion [SPOILERS]

Well, $10k seems like a pretty low level to get that arbitrarily hard. I guess the writers thought Oprah's car giveaway is enough of a pop culture touchstone that naming the car model would be a reasonable mid-level Q, but the results didn't really bear that out. Completely agree, thought that belo...

Re: Millionaire 2018-19 Season Discussion [SPOILERS]

I guessed the wrong way between B and D on the Village People question (although I do like the songs I've heard of theirs). Hawaiian alphabet made me think of some Samoan/Hawaiian football players I know, proceeding from there: Mariota, Tagovailoa, Vaitai, Polamalu, Kemoeatu, etc. May have hurt more...

Re: Tuesday, December 4, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Got excited for a half second upon FJ category reveal until I realized the likelihood of wordplay or some other pun, like usual. Looks as if I was half-right. Instaget though, so no need to complain any further. :D

Another solid showing from Dave, congrats on win #2.
