Re: Wednesday, February 21, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

So, Bryan coming back on stage after ending in the red brings up a question -- how come they don't let a player in the red play FJ for 'fun'. Let them write their response down like the other contestants just to see if they would have gotten it right. Rob, I certainly wanted you to win, but I kept h...

Re: Tuesday, February 20, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

If the FJ! clue’s wording had left off the English translation I wonder if it still goes 4/4 including me? It would've been a triple stumper for most groups of contestants. And even if the clue writers had gone the other, easier way and left off the Portuguese term, the curse of knowledge could've ...

Re: Learned League 76 - Official Thread

First time in A after 15 prior seasons below (Summit). Get to face off against my MMama and 2 Crias for the first time in a long time! I *may* have woken up this morning in a panic that I'd somehow missed questions from the night before, then gotten disappointed to wait another day. Nothing is bett...

Re: Learned League 76 - Official Thread

One of those serendipitous moments in yesterday's match. Looked at the Mercosur question in the morning, but wasn't coming up with anything. I knew I knew it, but just couldn't pull it, so I let it be. That evening, I'm doing the dishes and puzzling it over and BAM it comes to me.

Re: Term for getting all clues in a horizontal row?

The problem, of course, is that unless you're scoring yourself, it's not likely you're going to notice. And unless you're talking bottom row (or maybe 2nd to bottom) I wouldn't call it an impressive feat. My 1/50 of a dollar.

When you can start filling in the unfilled information for the Jeopardy episodes for season 18.

Also can you considering posting the secret link?

Thanks
Dell, you might want to sit back and read what goes on here for a while and put some more thought into what you post.

Re: Wednesday, February 14, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

I had to laugh at the champ's answer of Menomonie Wisconsin because it's a small college town that they will never ever ask about on Jeopardy. Plus it's nowhere near the 414 area code. As it's been pointed out, there is a Menomonee (Falls) - which is near Milwaukee. Who knew why Meonomonee (or Meno...

It's apparently a 9,500 - square foot house on about a third of an acre (not much room for a yard) built in 1892. It's supposedly single-family and has seven bedrooms and nine bathrooms. And, still, no one has ever seen Lars. Nor Carlton. The Doorman. Or Norm's wife, Vera or Margaret's husband, Lou...

Re: Adult tests March 6,7,8, teen test March 15

Cleveland and Detroit are about a 2 hour drive apart... weird to have auditions at both. They are both about the same distance from me. I think I'll pick Cleveland since I've never been there. ...if you're driving what, the Batmobile? Downtown to downtown is about 180 miles, and goes right past at ...

In the category Jay Leno's Garage, Charles de Gaulle seemed hard for the top clue, and World's Fair seemed easy for the $800 clue. Maybe they should have been swapped? This assassination attempt is depicted at the beginning of the move The Day of the Jackal . It's apparently a 9,500 - square foot h...

I suspect today's wagering would be one that would send Keith (of The Final Wager ) to his drinks again. Keith will be appearing on Millionaire next Wednesday, the 21st. Surprised at hearing that Katrina & the Waves did Eurovision. An old friend of mine was the drummer for her on this past tour. I ...
