Re: Thursday, January 21, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

This FJ was a slam dunk for me, which was a nice change of pace.

Brian has been good, but he has also been lucky. That's an important combination. Interested to see how long he can keep it up.

Re: Tuesday, January 19, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Nailed FJ but without a ton of confidence. As others have pointed out, there were other plausible answers. Hurts to miss a DD that gave you "huge marble tomb" along the way to a 1-in-7 option.

Re: Monday, January 18, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Slam dunk FJ for me, along with the contestants. I enjoyed Jennifer's savvy wagering over the past two games. Helen got away with a bad one. Congrats to Donesh on a game well played, although he also got away with a FJ wager.

Re: Friday, January 15, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Hated the final, but maybe I'd have felt differently if I went with LBJ instead of joining the JFK crowd. You could get close enough with quick math to figure it had to be one of those two, but at that point I figured shorter presidency = less time to meet the queen. Which presidents the queen has m...

A lot to write in 30 seconds, but I was happy to get FJ since the Eric Carle Museum is in our coverage area and always on my radar.

Re: Wednesday, January 13, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Another strong performance by Lucy, who clearly has a strong knowledge base. I think it was a mistake to wait to hunt for DD3 late after DD2. She left it out there for a tantalizing period but got away with it.

Re: Tuesday, January 12, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Huge win for Lucy, who played big when she had to and nailed the final. (A bad case of moon madness in 2019 helped lock this one in for me before Ken was done reading.) I was so heartened to see an informed wager by Tanay from second after wanting to call the betting police every night for a while t...

Re: Monday, January 11, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Congrats to Ken for climbing yet another J mountain. He did well for his first time, and was warm and appropriately reverent. Timing at home was strange after becoming SO used to Alex's delivery. Congrats to Tanay for not getting rattled after the early DD wipeout. Of course it's not the same, and i...

Re: Friday, January 8, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

The game: sorry to see Cliff lose on that DD wager, but it was a gutsy move and he probably glides to a win if he gets it. Got Alex’s final final with plenty of time but little confidence. Happy to end this horrid week (in many ways) with a correct response. The rest: It was a sad night in this home...

Re: Thursday, January 7, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Have only seen "Hair" once, about a decade ago, but ended up on stage for the finale along with most of the rest of the audience. That made FJ a cinch today. I've been delaying the inevitable and pretending AT would just keep on chugging along. Friday will be surreal when it finally ends.

NHO Robert Baratheon. That seemed like an opaque TOM in the top box. What was the TOM for Portugal in Queens for $200? 0/5 in Jocks. Ran Mythology and Science & Math. Any reason I should know where Vaalsenberg is? That sounds like it could be anywhere. Musical + 1968 + astrological = ??? I know "Ag...

Re: Wednesday, January 6, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Manisha would be back for a third game with a sensible $3,001 wager. The triple wipeout came to fruition and it cost her a win.

I had no chance in this Final but guessed Avengers because I figured it was a superhero flick.

Re: Tuesday, January 5, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Congrats to Brayden on a great run. Ghostbusters was nearly the key to a runaway game, oddly enough. FJ had me lost looking to make two Carolinas fit in one slot while Georgia took up space. Rough. If you know your Jeopardy history, tonight’s game came with a free $800! https://www.j-archive.com/sho...

Re: Tuesday, December 15, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Very impressive win.

It didn't matter to the contestants' ability to get it right, but the FJ didn't mention that the magazine is also ending this month. I think that's how I knew about this — O has been in the news often in the last few months.
