Re: Friday, May 18, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

Instaget FJ, agreed this was likely the easiest of the tournament. He was far and away the best player in the tournament and deserved to win Agree 100%, I was happy for him to pull through and it was nice to see the hugs exchanged at the end as well. Thanks MB for the stats breakdown, his numbers ar...

Re: This just in! New season of Millionaire (2018) seeks contestants

Sent in an application as soon as I saw the notice up on Friday, fingers crossed! Figured I can't be much worse than what I've seen over the last two weeks or so. I don’t watch the syndicated WWTBAM, and I’ve lost track of who the host is, but he must be better than Clarkson...right? Bachelor host C...

Re: TD 378 - K.I.S.S. (Final Results)

Looks like the sheep insurance did nothing to change my final standing - but I'm psyched my bet paid off! Great idea as a whole.

Echoing the thanks of others for a well-done TD, Peter. Hope to see another sometime!

This might be the lowest scoring TD of all time. :D

Re: Millionaire 2017-18 Season Discussion [SPOILERS]

Yeesh... When are auditions again? :D :D So that's two Fridays in a row where most of the contestants have just chosen... poorly. I guess the end of season on a Friday is the best place to burn those off? What's interesting to me is, if my facts are straight, this is a sweeps period. J! is in the mi...

Re: Thursday, May 10, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

Is it just me or have the FJs this tournament been extra tough? Definitely harder IMO. And I'm all for clues about movies/Hollywood/Oscars but it's getting a little ridiculous lately. Agree with both of you here. I'm 0-4 this week and strongly dislike when the show goes on these runs of excessive f...

Manchester here - I got stuck thinking of recent films for some reason.

I agree those were really tough boards compared to other recent Teacher Tourney games (though Presidential Possessives seemed kind of dumb), and I agree that Larry and Claire could be contenders come next week.

Josh is a force. I'm impressed with his breadth of knowledge. He knocks out sports questions and classical fiction with equal aplomb. He OWNS the buzzer, and doesn't seem to self destruct or get in his own way. I enjoy watching him make a blowout game more that I have many other players. Completely...

55 in Roman Numerals - LV - Louis Vuitton, done. That could've been a lot worse. Nice game all around, too bad for Osman after a great game yesterday and the charge late to get to the lead. Congrats to our new champ though!

Not good with food trivia, but got that question right from a memorable scene in Full House - Uncle Jesse is decorating the house for Christmas, and tells Becky that he brought the mistletoe, to which she replies that it was not mistletoe, instead (the correct response to that question above).

I can't believe so many of you knew Marty Robbins and Alabama for the country music question - Robbins is the only country singer, to my knowledge, to have a second career as a race car driver. Two singletons moves me up --- two spots. Awesome. Love how Harvard and every well-known African country w...

I'm glad saguaro got only six - it was the only one I knew the name for offhand and I wanted a drop elsewhere. Thought that would be a much fatter sheep than it actually was.

This young whippersnapper will take the cacti over Lombardo any day. :D

Just wanted to say in response to earlier inquiry that I am one who got this Final mostly because of the Latin only - I'm taking an Elementary Latin class right now and was able to figure out the translation a few seconds in. I'm sure I've probably heard the religious expression in question before, ...

3/5 in that lyrics category, but I agree that was really tough - pop music is usually a strong suit.

Thought Final was a touch harder than yesterday, but still got it without issue.

I had handicapped Rebecca and Dhruv as the players to beat in this tourney. William did just that tonight, but Rebecca lived up to expectations. Nice payday for her at least. A few people have written this, and it's surprising to me. I actually think Rebecca played better in this game than she did ...

One of these days we're going to get some love for sports video games on J!, right?
Gran Turismo is a sports video game.

Duhhhhhhhhh hahaha..

I was thinking more along the lines of Madden, MLB The Show, etc., but... touche.
