Re: TD 417 - Short quiz on random trivia -- Final Standings

Many, many years since the last time I played a TD, and I'm glad to see I haven't lost my knack for it :lol:

Thanks for running this!

Re: TD 417 - Short quiz on random trivia -- Standings after Q1, Q2, and bonus

It's been a long time since I've played a TD. I forget how utterly unpredictable this game is :D

Re: Tuesday, July 8, 2014 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

It occurred to me that, last time I heard Maggie's pre-game spiel, she was hammering home that a score of $0 always loses. Granted this was during the ToC and just after the triple-zero game in the Teen Tournament, but if she's still making a point of it that could explain why Maire was reluctant to...

Re: World Quizzing Championships - Results are in!

Incidentally, former J! Champ Dave Leach will be proctoring the Atlanta location. Actually, I'm happy to say I'll be playing at the Atlanta location! My girlfriend Leslie was kind enough to volunteer to handle the proctoring so that I can get in on the quiz as well. It just occurred to me this afte...

Re: Wednesday, February 20, 2013 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

Since Dave said his time is done that means there wasn't a triple zero game in one of the other semifinals. Geez, way to spoil the suspense, Dave! :) I have no excuse for my antisocial behavior. :lol: I was surprised that they continued to keep us sequestered after this game was over. I asked if I ...

Re: Wednesday, February 20, 2013 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

Huh, I honestly didn't think the light pens were activated until the Think! music started. (I guess this means they have a bit longer than 30 seconds). That's definitely news to me, thanks Dave, for another "behind the scenes" fact that I always appreciate. I was surprised by that, too! I think Mag...

Re: Wednesday, February 20, 2013 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

I've certainly had a month's time to think and rethink how tonight's game ended. On the one hand it's easy to say, "But for $200 more," and, "If only I'd been a little more aggressive on that Daily Double." Both those thoughts benefit from hindsight. The DD could have easily been something I didn't ...

That's essentially what I did. I went into the game thinking $12K is good, $15K is better. When I saw I could wager to get myself to $15K without allowing Patrick to catch me from third, that's the bet I placed.

Re: Tuesday, February 19, 2013 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

I knew the church had to be either St. Paul's or Westminster Abbey, since there are basically two well known churches in London. It's funny, in my brain I have St. Paul's filed under Churches and Westminster Abbey filed under Place Where Important People Are Buried . I don't primarily think of it a...

I'm delighted to have advanced in the tournament, particularly against such tough competition. I can honestly say there's not one person in the field I didn't want to win the whole thing...

Re: Wednesday, February 13, 2013 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

one thing i'm curious about is that the players seemed to be ordered (at their positions) by money, rather than wins or last name They definitely ordered us by total winnings, Joon. Before our upcoming quarterfinal I joked with Ashok that I'd never played from the center podium before. He said he'd...

Ah, nice to finally see these games, seeing as how I was stuck in the green room with Corina watching Scott Pilgrim vs. the World and Iron Man all day long. Of course if I hadn't been there I wouldn't have found out that Corina is a big ol' comics geek. Quite the start to the tournament! Count me in...

Thanks, Steph! Between Hanzz and myself we've managed to remember and find nineteen of the twenty posters in the round. Once we get the last one I'll be happy to share it here with the group.

Re: TOC 2013 Pre-Taping Rankings through 1/11/13

Yep, my friends and family showed up early, just after Monica Thieu and her family. We staked out a spot in the corner, but since there were already too many in my group for a single team, Ashok and David started up the second table up front. As it happens my parents, who sat at the table next to us...

Re: Friday, December 28, 2012 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

In Nichole's defense, this simply isn't something you ever get coached on. I asked Nicholas Campiz sometime after our episode had aired if he'd known beforehand that a tie game ends in both players getting the cash and coming back as co-champions. Fortunately for me he remembered seeing one such gam...

Re: Monday, December 24, 2012 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

32800, pleased to say. "All You Need Is Love" came to mind immediately because of "She Loves You," and although I couldn't place any of the other sampled songs I went with it. My favorite bit of trivia about "All You Need Is Love" is that it was written for the first live satellite broadcast, a 1967...
