Re: Wednesday, July 17, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Close shave on Final, but I eventually latched onto fishing and that got me to Walton with about five seconds to spare. Feels nice after a bad miss yesterday. Great run Sam, can't wait to see you again in a future ToC. Better to have a bad day on day 6 than day 1. I know he's on these boards too, so...

Re: 2019 TOC Updates

Looks as if the mystery of Jimmy's statement is solved - a tracker for the next ToC is live and with only two names on it . (This is what I expected, and I personally think some folks here and elsewhere were reading way too deeply into that awkwardly worded statement, but refrained from saying anyth...

Re: Thursday, July 11, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

It's the kind of FJ, similar to the Jane Fonda one, that could be trouble for people who are too young. Little late to this party but you got that right! I was born well after 1992, said Roseanne and felt pretty confident based on political and 2018 revival. Never would have guessed Murphy Brown (n...

Re: Monday, July 15, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Instaget FJ here. Tremendous job Sam, way to dominate the game start to finish.

Historical stat of the day (I guess): Sam's $113k first-four day total trails only those of James, Austin Rogers and Andrew Pau over the last five years. Very impressive stuff.

Re: 2019 TOC Updates

Always a chance, but I'm going to predict we'll see Emma in QF1 (whether that's a Monday or a Wednesday) and that we'll see James in the Thursday game (whether that's QF2 or QF4). No election year to work around, so I'd bet a standard two-week, Monday-Friday schedule will be followed this year, as ...

Good game all around. Near-instaget FJ for me. Congrats Sam!! I like the mustache. :) Thanks for sharing those behind the scenes stories, yay Uber guy! Nice work playing those DDs to perfection and for landing a big payday. I hope game #2 goes better for you in terms of finding buzzer mojo. With you...

Re: 2019 TOC Updates

Writing on phone, sorry in advance for typos or other nonsensical musings. Great little surprise this morning! Makes a lot of sense now why the website keepers kept Larry on the ToC tracker even after his passing, and why the cutoff happened when it did. Fourteen in, and fill Larry’s spot with whome...

Nice work once again, Ryan, I thought you handled some very odd/tough DD categories very well. Especially so for whippersnappers our age hahah.. If you see this: How did you feel entering the studio for this day of taping? Tired, fresh, focused and ready to win more? :lol:

Re: Thursday, July 4, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Ryan here, that was my reaction too! Hence my small FJ wager. But I had told myself going in that if I hit a DD and was at all confident in the category, I’d be going big, and I’m just glad I was able to execute it! Welcome to the board Ryan, and congrats on an impressive win! Nice work playing the...

Re: Trivia about Trivia: Obscure Record Holders

I'm not sure if it's known who is the youngest ever regular play Jeopardy! contestant is, but this morning, I watched the Season 14 Premier on Netflix and Atish Choudhury revealed he was 18. You must be at least 18 in order to be a regular play contestant. The same thing ran through my mind hahah ....

Focused too much on "Africa" and ended up with Serengeti. Ugh.

ToC bubble players are safe for at least a few more days.

Re: TD 424 - Closing Time (Q1-Q8 revealed)

I noted this to clt in the parting shots part of the entry form, but I found it fortuitous that I was listening to Bebe Rexha's "I'm a Mess" as I filled out the answer sheet (had not looked at the questions prior). Smug grin as I nab a singleton. 8-)

Re: Tuesday, June 25, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

What a weird game, but a nice down to the wire finish. Does this make Ryan the youngest finalist in tournament history? Many congrats to him for grinding out the victory. I feel that the music category and FJ belonged in a College game. Blanked on Mick Jagger (grrr) but got the other four right in t...

Instaget FJ. Props to Justin for making the 100% correct play, shame it didn't work out this time. Lucas played well, congrats on advancing! How the matchups for the semis shake out: 6/24: W2 vs. W5 vs. WC4 6/25: WC1 vs. WC2 vs. WC3 6/26: W1 vs. W3 vs. W4 Yeah, there is just not way of predicting th...

Re: New old games in the J! Archive

Muffy’s game show rap sheet has a lot of items and let me know if I missed something. Tough year for wildcards with 8300 not enough and 8850 last in. I for one was very curious as to how Muffy did not make it out of the QF round (I only learned recently she was a former Teen contestant). Thanks for...

I suspect this FJ will poll somewhere around 100%. :lol:

Very impressed with Teagan and Ryan, especially considering how young both are. I could barely scrape 50 right playing at home when I was a senior! Best of luck to (hopefully) both of them next week.

E.J. tried to lose the game a few times with his missed DDs and the suicide wager from second. He played very well otherwise, congrats on a solid first win. Wow is it frustrating knowing and picturing the correct answer in your brain, only to draw a blank on the object’s actual name. Got that right!...
