Re: Online Test Recap & Discussion (Eastern), April 9, 2019

That one bodied me. I'm very out of trivia/Jeopardy practice (I've been taking some time off from it) and it shows. I'm interested to see if people felt that was a tough test because it felt like it to me.

Re: Thursday, February 28, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I wonder if this FJ is one of those where knowing more than the bare minimum hurts you. The answer came to me within about 5 seconds but I also have a very, very light knowledge of British poetry and moderate for British Lit, so there wasn't as much to get through. I found it interesting that all th...

Lost my own coin flip between 1984 and Fahrenheit 451. Both fit the question well but F451 was four years off. Oh well

Not sure I'll ever get used to teenagers who can destroy me at Jeopardy while whiffing so dramatically on a category like MTV.

Anecdotally the East Coast test always seems brutal. This one was quite challenging. Even my gimme categories weren't gimmes.

Re: Tuesday, March 8, 2016 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

If you mis-double 2nd and 3rd place's scores, you might think you just have a crush game here and bet that large according. Annie played very well in the first two rounds. Honestly, I think she just messed up that part of the math. Not hubris or anything like that. I think all y'all's shade is kind...

Re: Online Test Recap & Discussion (Eastern), January 26, 2016

I selfishly hope I wouldn't have gotten a good score on it. I showed up 30 minutes early. My password wouldn't work, so I reset. It takes 20 minutes to get the reset, another 8 to get the reset to work properly, and by the time I get there, it won't let me log-in. Out before it starts.

Re: Thursday, May 7, 2015 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

A little surprised that was a TS in FJ. As has been said, if you're taking pro sports team, you're probably talking about the four majors on Jeopardy. You can safely remove the NBA as an option, and probably the NHL (the Bruins date back to 1924, which is probably "almost 100" if you take it as them...

Re: Wednesday, April 29, 2015 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

The final DD wager was interesting. 4k takes him out of the running with a wrong answer anyway, may as well put a lot more in. But at least enough was wagered to, if he was right, to guarantee him a shot. I can't remember the scores at the time, but it seemed to me that even if Brian went TDD (corr...

Mad props to the writers for one of the better category puns I've seen in awhile... Following NEW ENGLAND PATRIOTS with DIE FLEDERMAUS?

Re: Online Test Recap & Discussion (Eastern), April 14, 2015

To me that was the hardest Eastern test in the last 3 years. Still pulled off a 32, which is kind of annoying that I'm right on the bubble of what Jeopardy wants 3 years running, but at least I didn't get 34 this year like the last two. Even if I got my one flip right (went Purple Heart instead of ...

Re: Online Test Recap & Discussion (Eastern), April 14, 2015

After looking at the clues, it's close. If all of my educated guesses are right, 41. However, there are a bunch I typed in really fast really late and some I'm not sure on the answers to still, so it'll be close. Hopefully on the right side of 35 when the answers go up

Re: Online Test Recap & Discussion (Eastern), April 14, 2015

No glitches on my end but it's unfortunate to hear others had them. I thought the pop culture skewed tougher than normal. The Hozier one was a lay-up, but an Alanis Morrisette lyric, an X-Men subtitle, a Scandal character could run tough for those relying on those questions to make their numbers. No...

Re: 2015 Online Test

Tough round but if my guesses pan out I may squeak over 35. Not my areas of pop culture and no sports, but I was saved by a decent amount of geography I actually knew, which is rare in itself.

I loved every single way about how Kaya played and am sorry I do get to see more. Kerry, as a resident of my city, is a great champ, but Kaya was just fantastic. Oh well. The Nuggets question was pretty darn tough. I saw oro and jumped to a Golden State too And the wager she made was clearly the rig...

Re: Wednesday, October 29, 2014 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

On the Macklemore question, considering the phrasing of the question and the clip they played, wouldn't the more accurate correct answer be Wanz, as he does have a single name and is the only one singing in the clip?
