Re: Tuesday, March 5, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

It’s weird to have a team tournament and you are wondering how some teams are specifically going to try to hide the deficiencies of some of the less strong players by sticking them in SJ or hoping they can pull off the FJ. A tournament of great players shouldn’t have to do that, right? I think ther...

Re: Tuesday, March 5, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

So this is done. On one hand I am happy I got to see some of my friends play again. However I think ultimately this was a very unsatisfying experience. One issue I have mentioned. I felt the questions were not obviously more difficult. For those of you who question that, just stroll through the UTOC...

Re: Monday, March 4, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

The questions are too easy. It’s a buzzer race and honestly it’s not great viewing for that reason

Is Brad Rutter still the #1 player of all time? This is a thing that is now up for debate, though I think we all want to see the rest of the tournament before the debate begins.
Though much is taken, much abides.

Spotted British, science fiction, and 19th century, and no one could get the answer. Yeesh.

Re: Request for information regarding an upcoming episode (POTENTIAL SPOILERS)

I would agree. There may in fact be a plausible explanation as to why the bet was made, per the information I was juuuuust given. I would go so far as to say that there is a more likely than not chance that the contestant is innocent of any wrongdoing based on that additional info. I will leave it a...

Re: Request for information regarding an upcoming episode (POTENTIAL SPOILERS)

So I will tell you what I heard. From my understanding, someone made a very concerning wager on a daily double at some point in the season. I’m told it was a cryptic reference to a set of numerals that has meaning to white power nationalists. I was also told that this was caught in post production. ...

someone finally bet 69?
We need Dr. Michael Bummer on Jeopardy.

I know of that guy.

He got arrested not too long ago for tossing around opiates. He ain't a doctor any more.

Let’s see what transpires on air. I am thinking this might occur next week. I’ll let folks know what I have heard later this month.

Request for information regarding an upcoming episode (POTENTIAL SPOILERS)

For those of you who might know - when does this purported controversial, shocking wager occur? I am curious to see how plausibly it is “fixed.”

Re: Trivia Nationals

Another planned difference is that they wanted to do tiered events. For example, they want to do two divisions for quiz bowl, to make it more enjoyable for some of the less uh aggressive teams.

Trivia Nationals

If you had not heard about this, then I wanted to post this here to let you know about it: http://trivianationals.org It's not TCONA. It's not TCONA's successor. More just a very similar event run by enthusiastic trivia folk, that just so happens to be at the Tropicana in August. It's set up to run ...

Re: Jeopardy All-Star Games

The tournament is a Wednesday-through-Tuesday, so it would not surprise me if it was set up in some sort of four-part 3-episode 3-episode 2-episode 2-episode fashion. Or that they will do something like spread two games worth of content over three games, filling the dead time with puff segments and...

The third major event is the Hot 100/IQA event. You know, I haven’t posted here in months, and yet I bothered to drop by to offer that little bit of info. It is reasonable to assume that I might know something more about these behind-the-scenes issues than you. It is also reasonable to assume someo...
