Re: Friday, September 20, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Congrats once again to Jason! Can't wait to see if he's fully rested come Monday. My last US History course (partly concerning the Jackson era, BTW :lol:) was just a few months ago, so I had no problems with this FJ. LanceJ: Good game! Not going to lie, when I realized it was you in the contestants'...

Re: TD 431 - Abbreviated Version (Final results)

Misreading the clue and leaving out the "al" on heptagonal cost me ten points and the win, it appears. That's going to hurt. :oops:

Congrats to the podium finishers and thanks again as always clt, can't wait for the next one!

Re: Wednesday, September 18, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Feel fortunate to have gotten this FJ right. Never seen the film in question, it took me a few seconds to connect on atomic bomb, and needed the coin flip to fall the right way. A get's a get. *shrug* When Jason’s run is done, I feel like he’ll be remembered as the Curtis Martin or Frank Gore of Jeo...

Re: Wednesday, September 11, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I thought Jason was in solid position to extend his win streak coming out of the summer break, but wow has he blown me away so far this week. Hope he can keep it going!

Now it's Tamron Hall 1-2 and GH from 2-3. Thanks, just caught the episode myself. Glad the guide wasn't messing with me. I moved my (ed...

I absolutely LOVE that purple and pink in the intro graphics.

Congrats Jason on win #7! Stellar Coryat score once again.

(Moving the other blurb I had earlier to the J! in media thread).

Re: TD 429 - All Music (Third Quarter Standings Revealed)

The problem with a near-wheelhouse quiz of this type is figuring out how others will respond. I vacillated between “countrypolitan”, “Rickenbacker”, “Murray the K”, and “Alan Freed” on question 8, and picked the worst score of the four. Then I misread the instructions for 9 by saying “Dee Snider” (...

Re: TD 429 - All Music (Third Quarter Standings Revealed)

I conflated Los Del Rio and Taco Del Mar. Would love to open up a Macarena themed Taco shop though. Brilliant. I am not much of a taco guy, but I will absolutely go to this. Should’ve sheeped for everything. The los del rio thing was a typo, so I just have to lol at that. Clearly a simple typo. I t...

Re: TD 429 - All Music (Second Quarter Standings Revealed)

I've been around TD's long enough to not get too annoyed when what I think is a really good answer turns out to be a (mega-)sheep. But "Marty Robbins".... really? Of course that was still better than the other "really good answer" I considered: Lee Hazlewood and Nancy Sinatra, who had a pretty big ...

Re: TD 429 - All Music (First Quarter Standings Revealed)

It looks like I should have 5 points if the scores for questions 2 and 3 are accurate. Yeah you're right, thanks for the catch. For some reason I accidentally recorded "3" for those of you who picked selma, with the exception of Peachbox. The rest of the folks in that tab will get an extra point at...

Re: TD 429 - All Music

Realized that I likely will not get to the reveal until Wednesday morning, so I'm pushing back the deadline for entries until Tuesday (9/3) at 11:59 pm (eastern time). Hopefully that will help get more folks entered in. Have a great holiday everyone!

Re: Final Jeopardy! Clues

For what it's worth, I think that piece of information could make for a GREAT FJ clue. Plus, the absolute worst that spoiling that information could do is a one point reduction as a bonus clue. No harm done, as far as I'm concerned.

Thanks for the TD, kiddo. Are the bonus questions free guess/no penalty? Yes, apologies for leaving that out. Bonus questions are free of penalty, which is why they don't have the required tag on the google form. I'll amend the opening post as such. For the record, 5-a has always said that he was n...

TD 429 - All Music (FINAL STANDINGS)

Welcome to my third TD. In both of my previous millennial-based quizzes, we talked in the threads at length about music by era, and I then got the idea to do a TD entirely devoted to music (or random noises, depending on your feelings). Of course there are lots of directions to take a TD entirely de...
