Re: Tuesday, January 19, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Like Bamaman, for FJ, had to guess between Motel 6 and Super 8. Guessed correctly, but my logic was merely "which one have I heard mentioned on Jeopardy! more often?" Turns out the 8 was from $8.88, so the rate wasn't actually in the name. Good to know. Thanks for saving me the google search LOL, I...

Re: 2020 in review and whats in store for 2021

I hope we see the next ToC before the end of the season, if it's feasible. I'm becoming less and less convinced it will be possible based on the ever-growing swell of outrage against Ken. It's really turning into a witch hunt out there and Ken's being painted as a monster based almost exclusively on...

Re: Thursday, December 17, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

This FJ is another opportunity to wonder if certain facts known to “older” people might be more obscure to the younger generation. Doubt that Cyrano is as well known as it used to be. I think you're probably right on this. I think I'm a year or two younger than Brayden; got this FJ, but only knew i...

Immediately wrote Socrates, then spent ten seconds thinking about Galileo.. but Galileo is not exactly part of the ancient world LOL. Went back to Socrates so no harm, no foul.

Looks like Cody was on Millionaire a few years back. Fun game overall, congrats to Kristen on the W.

Re: Friday, November 27, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Another well-played game and another quality win for Ryan. He has outplayed a number of quality challengers during his run. FJ was not an instaget but I felt reasonably confident that it had to be Uganda. Agreed on all counts, Ryan seems to have a good feel for game strategy. End of the alphabet go...

I toured, and got accepted at, Clark University during my college application process a few years ago. Wasn't a great fit location wise so I ended up enrolling elsewhere, but it was cool to see the school come up on J! tonight regardless. I hesitate slightly to ask for a poll request because it's on...

Enjoyed this game, props to all three contestants. Dog breeds is not exactly a category I'd like to see in FJ, but "Alpen" --> St. Bernard I can handle. Dachshund did come to mind briefly, however. For the ToC possibilities: College Nibir Teacher Ben 8x: Jennifer, Karen and MacKenzie 5x: Sam, Paul a...

Archive playthrough: Coryat $50,600 (55R, 1W) DD 3/3 FJ :mrgreen: Broke 50k for the first time in a regular-play adult game, which I'm going to go ahead and say is in honor of Alex. Not a lot to kick myself over except forgetting the category plus misreading the clue in ACRONYMS $400 and saying "co...

No matter what I have said or may say for or against AT or the show, at the end of the day I love what they value at their core and have preached for so many years; they're the right things. Amidst all the shock and sadness, that's what I tried to keep in mind today. Still a prospective contestant a...

Another "sprint" response here. 26/27 in DJ, no issues solving FJ. Congrats to the not rock star on a great run and to Scott for his victory. Has there ever been another contestant who never had a positive score at any point in the game? Susan Gress (KJ Game 7) was the first name that came to mind, ...

Re: Fourth Podium Poll for 10/7/2020

$10,600 --> get on LifeLock would have given me DD2 so at least $2,000 more --> + FJ = 4th podium win.

I'd like to thank the Academy (of Country Music Awards) for helping me eke out a 4th podium win. Congrats to David for his victory and to Cory for a delightful run at the champ's podium!
