Re: POLL: A Hypothesis about Auditions

I auditioned in Boston in 2007 and I will be going to NYC for my second try the end of May. I live in the province of Newfoundland and Labrador, at the far eastern end of the island. A few more miles and I would be very wet. I'm actually closer to London, England, than I am to Dallas, for example. ...

my feeling is that the audition lottery is random or automated. TPTB work so hard and do so much already, I just can't see them weighing travel times at this point in the selection process.
This.
+1
Simple theory - there are too many qualified people.

Re: Thursday, April 5, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

The FJ! clue is one where it could have been cut in half after “movie” and it’s still a solve. It’s fine to add more information to make the clue more interesting although I’ll be curious if the TV portion really helped anyone get it. My instinct is it only cements the correct response with assuran...

Re: Tuesday, March 27, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

Great game..little more confidence from Katy -- she could have / would have. Too bad.

Dreaded FJ category. OK -- something about work -- Manic Monday? Too new

Five o'clock world? Probably old enough. I have nothing else..lets go with it.

Note to self: 60's music - put Beatles in FJ.

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

I played off youtube video posted by J! and it had repeated question on Sue Grafton. I'm surprised to see that it is not even in the test based on input here. Also, the clues went by very quickly (not the 8 seconds or whatever time on normal exam), so not a good idea to use as a practice test for ne...

Re: Monday, March 5, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

I had one precall in TRIPLE TALK SONG TITLES and funny that it was the only one the players did not know. I precalled (Girls x 3) and it is my only precall ever in a song category. I resigned myself to a 1/5 in the category. Last DD bet was odd - oh well. However, I liked the Champ's intro :) As fo...

Re: Thursday, March 1, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

Explanation about TB process would have been great. 1) What would happen if the first person to ring 'negs' - does that make the other player winner? 2) What if it is a stumper? Will there be no champ? Didn't like the new TB procedure. A correct response is required to win the game on a tiebreaker....

Re: Friday, February 23, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

:( for another poor FJ wager.

How coincidental is this? = I was reading up on Higgs (of Higgs Boson fame) and apparently he had something to do with the word 'MEME'. How convenient for today's FJ :) If not for this, I would have never got this clue.

I wonder if boardie Boson got the FJ.

Congrats Rob. Also, that is as clear a comparison of signaling device that you get to see. Tough to see Bryan end in Red.

Question: Would Peristyle work for Colonnade clue?

Played FJ off website. Drew a blank... rather than focusing on Kenya, I focused on the canyon or whatever they mentioned in the clue. Might have clicked at a different time.

Ian. Buddy. Ouch. You strike me as a guy who's going to play with the figures afterwards and realize what happened. That one's going to hurt for a while. This was not my night to try unjumbling state capitals. Really impressed by LaKedra's run. Ditto Stumped on FJ. Wonder if boardie Kirk got the FJ?

Re: Friday, December 8, 2017 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

On a 4/4 FJ! week the category I want on a Friday is something TV. Thank you writers. Even though I don’t watch the show I was done before the music began. If the clue had asked for her character’s name then that would have been tough for me to get in 30 seconds without some kind of hint. On the ot...

For Kyle's interview: Alex said something like 'let us go back to your high school...' - was I the only one who thought 'it probably wasn't that long ago'.

Surprised no BMS on Med. sea for Adriatic...vaguely remember J powers doing that before.

Another good player beaten by poor strategy. Great game by Tal and Lisa.
Whatever Lisa talked about in her interview is impressive.

The way the game was going, I'm surprised that they did so well in fj. I'm disappointed to see Big O as a TS.

For extremism question, I said communism. Ouch.

Good showing from the champ. Impressive gets in DJ..I have NHO that 2k Poe story. Kind of blah game overall.

I really need to cut down on the negs. Happy Thanksgiving y'all.

Re: Questions about getting tickets, and other stuff

I was thinking the same as the OP. Doesn't seem like I will be getting on the show soon, might as well attend a taping.
Does anyone know when they break for winter vacation?

Re: Friday, November 17, 2017 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

Wow. Is this the first TOC where no one got fjs in two games? How about the eventual champ starting at 0 on game 2? This is the first TOC with 0/6 in the finals if that is what you meant. More than one finals have gone 1/6. Six previous times someone has had zero after F1 and none of them won. Luck...
