One reason they sell them is that it's their work and it's a lot of hard work to make a question set. Just a thought.

Re: 2017 World Quizzing Championships

How about that Jakob Myers, who got 142 and just graduated high school? I always thought that Steve Perry (IMO the best quizzer this side of the pond) is the best bet to break the stranglehold of the Europeans. But looks like America now has a new star. After last years' event, I was telling Sven t...

Re: Friday, December 16, 2016 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

I've seen posts here about board members behind on watching and catching up. A trip, sickness, work schedule...I get how those things happen. 10 weeks worth of shows? There is no better preparation for doing well on the show than watching faithfully. It should be a habit and not a chore. This is an...

Is she in the TOC? I am too lazy to look. If so, I feel regardless of the category, the answer should be her name. In fact I would just tell first podium you're picking Cindys for $200 and be done with it. I don't think you can just do the empty podium - though given some of the champs this year it ...

Re: 500 Questions (Season 2) [Spoilers after 5:00 p.m. PDT on game nights]

I wouldn't expect a third party contestant to walk out, actually. Even if someone saw this and knew it was wrong one or two folks walking out wouldn't make a difference. OTOH, I think Jennings knew what was going down and he was uniquely positioned to say No and did not. If he walked then their plan...

I bet Richard Mason enjoyed that.

But he would have enjoyed a chance to compete more.

He's flabby and out of practice. Happens when you don't have to compete to get onto these affairs.

Re: "500 questions" is casting for season 2

And to tie it all together, the first contestant is Jennings, who is replacing Richard Mason (which was news to Richard Mason).

Re: Friday, April 15, 2016 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

The show has been starving for a five day champion since October.

So - great planning - let's kill off two strong players in one episode, and have it all settled with a cakewalk FJ.

There were several boardies last time, hope to see more this season. Also hope we have 500 questions. And a new host Definitely a new host. I'm sure I read/heard somewhere that there is confirmed a new host for Season 2. Yes. That is why I said definitely a new host. You haven't heard of this perso...
