Re: jeopardy archives

I don't know the answer. Your question did lead me to visit j-archive, and I was quite touched by their memorial for Cindy Stowell.

Re: Friday, November 25, 2016 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

Hi Andrew, welcome to the Board and congratulations on your wins! I was just sitting at home and I still couldn't pull out Of Mice and Men, though I knew that fact quite well at one point. Ah the mind, she goes. To be honest, I wasn't feeling great about the category, which partly led to that bad be...

Re: Timing of Audition Invite Emails

I got a call from Jeopardy, but not necessarily "The Call." They asked the typical questions one would expect ("Is your info correct? Do you have any relatives that work at such and such company? Are you a felon? When are you not available for taping?"), but did not provide an exact date, just stat...

27.3%. I always just ballpark it and say around 75% of contestants lose in their first and only game.

Re: Millionaire 2016-17 Season Discussion [SPOILERS]

On your gofundme page you said you were 90% sure you would win enough so all the money raised would eventually be donated to the dogs, which you said in your latest update was at 50k https://www.gofundme.com/2ftntks , but in this thread you said you were at 61% at that level.

Re: Teachers Tournament 2016

Another note for those who hate spoilers: There is a local news article where the contestant basically says "I can't say how I did, but I did make it to the second week of taping in D.C." I can't really be more specific what paper it was or who said it without giving away the result, so maybe just a...

Re: Jeopardy taping three tournaments in D.C.

I just noticed that there's a "delivery delay" in my tickets. It says: "Delivery Delay until 3/31/16. Please adhere to published ticket limits. Orders exceeding the ticket limits will be canceled without notice." So if you didn't get tickets the first go-round, check back tomorrow and some will prob...

Excellent game by DefCon4, sorry he couldn't pull it out at the end. It sort of felt like an reverse Slam's Rule. He was posting regularly here until his taping, then stopped. Unfortunately, I hurt my back almost immediately after returning from LA. It's a long story, but until this week I couldn't...

Thanks for ALL the great advice, everyone! Off to the airport we go in the morning, so this'll be the last you hear from me until I get back (hopefully on Friday). :) And of course, I won't be able to share anything until June, so that'll be fun. This is why its essential to get the contact info fo...

Re: Jeopardy taping three tournaments in D.C.

Three hours after they opened, all the 4 p.m. tickets for the Teen Tournament tapings have been claimed, though they still have the noon tapings available. So if you're trying to get Teachers or Power Players, make sure you set your alarm for 6 a.m. Monday!

Re: An outchange for the worse in the 2014/2015 ToC? (SPOILER for 4/25 show)

The current lady could go on and win 20 or so games , but I feel like this would be less a reflection of exceptional skill on her part and more a reflection of just a string really, really unextraordinary opponents. The show has hit a new normal for mediocrity, and I feel like I have forgotten when...
