Re: Thursday, June 14, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

Surprised this was such a dud of a question, considering this was my fastest get of the week.
4/4 this week hoping for perfect 5.

Re: The Official TPH Education Thread (POTENTIAL GAME DAY SPOILERS)

They ask about the tiny town of Alcoa, TN all the time because of its association with aluminum. I see no reason they wouldn't ask about Redmond, WA given two famous companies have HQ there. In all seriousness, "Almost no Jeopardy responses are going to be 'unambiguously' anything" is horseshit. Ag...

Re: The Official TPH Education Thread (POTENTIAL GAME DAY SPOILERS)

The clue: "This work was over 50 years old & excerpts had been popularized when it had its first full U.S. performance on Christmas Eve 1944 " How I interpreted it: "Blah blah blah something in Russia that happened sometime around the end of the 19th century. Could be a book, could be music, could ...

Re: The Official TPH Education Thread (POTENTIAL GAME DAY SPOILERS)

Once again I implore to stop blaming the writers or the obscurity of the clues and actually start learning about the things you get wrong on this show, I guarantee in year you will be twice the player you are now. Unfortunately, twice zero is still zero. If that's you're attitude why do you even pl...

Re: The Official TPH Education Thread (POTENTIAL GAME DAY SPOILERS)

You like to have hundreds, thousands and millions of possibles in your FJ! clue Rolodex while the show itself does not. Yes, because everyone who played along knew the flight simulator one, right? Or swan song, Liederkranz, "Wall Street lays an egg", Bratt/Blatt, golden spurs, Carabelli & Durazzo.....

Re: The Official TPH Education Thread (POTENTIAL GAME DAY SPOILERS)

The clue said: San Diego's Balboa Park has more than a dozen museums, a Friendship Garden & this attraction with 3 million-plus visitors a year Nothing about most famous or most visited. What else in San Diego do you think could attract 3 million visitors?, but more importantly I think you're time ...

Re: Monday, April 2, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

I doubt I'll receive an answer to this question, but do you have trouble recognizing faces in your day to day life? Because thats the only explanation I can come up with for someone getting that Marlon Brando question wrong yet still being aware of who he is. I'm not TPH, but I'm far less familiar ...

Re: Monday, April 2, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

Ran Word, Three, and "Soo". Yet another brain lock on "Which planet has rings". There's only eight planets, but I derp them up all the time and can't seem to get any better. Any reason I should know that was Marlon Brando in the top box? I saw no TOM in the text of the clue. This was a horrible FJ!...

Re: Online Test Recap & Discussion (Eastern), March 6, 2018

For the Shakespeare clue I put stage instead of a stage, and for the Dunkirk question I didn't spell it all the way, do you think they will still consider those questions correct.
