Re: Monday, May 18, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Pretty incredible finish. A last-second half-court heave by Ben to stay in the game, and then an outright win in a situation I thought was most likely to end in a tiebreaker.

Re: RIP India Cooper

Very sad to hear. She was one of the first champs I rooted for as a little kid. Great player.

Re: Wednesday, April 22, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

This was one of those finals that felt like negbait. What else COULD it be but India? We know China isn't a democracy. What other countries even have 500 million people, let alone voters? Then you start overthinking. Glad I stuck with the obvious.

Re: Friday, April 3, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Sorry to see that Zimbabwe cost Jeff a win. I was thinking he’d bet more like $3,000 on that Daily Double in case there was more time for the final two clues. Moot.

In early with popcorn!

Would love to know where the total Coryat ranks all time.
No kidding. Rough game, and I went with Ike. Didn’t see a TOM, either.

Got Final right away and then spent 25 seconds convinced it was wrong because why would the clue give you “title island.”

Re: Monday, January 27, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Was pulling for Cheyenne, a fellow Albanian.

I think on the DD to close the board, if you are willing to bet enough to give up the lead, you should bet enough to put the game out of reach. But it worked out.

Traci here -- I am in fact good at the "fun stuff" I guess? I'm also good at the non-fun stuff. :) And yes, that DD wager haunts me to this day.
Welcome to the boards and congrats on your achievement.

Felt so bad for Priscilla after reading that Slate article earlier in the day.

Got FJ instantly and assumed I was missing a trick.

Re: GOAT Tournament Day 4 (1/14/20) Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Thoughts on the GOAT tourney: Congrats to Ken! He was characteristically sharp and was willing to alter his game to defend against James and his strategy. He really earned it. I was a little surprised with the 0 bet, but he got away with it thanks to the ultra-rare James miss. I do think James would...

Re: Friday, December 6, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

The players went through the material enough to allow for a full credits run. Nice to see things back on track for full 61-clue games after the DJ! round disaster on Monday. Katie put an end to Jennifer's streak of finding all the DDs. Unfortunately for her she missed it and also made enemies in th...

Re: Friday, December 6, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

So sorry it didn't work out for you, Randy. I hope you had fun nonetheless. I got FJ right, but I don't think it was a good one. On the reveal, Germany would have seemed to have been a better response. Or Austria, for that matter. Does anyone know what barbarians have to do with Monaco anyway? Sinc...

Re: Monday, December 2, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Rough game with a wild ending. I bet a huge range of responses in FJ would have been acceptable, as long as you led with "Luther's."
