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.

Placeholder for J Board rundle locations... PM me to add or ask for anonymity.

I think my Rundle in the Jundle second place finish is in serious trouble.

instaget on final jeopardy. james clavell was a wonderful writer. the first chronological book in his "asian saga" was "shogun." just about all my knowledge of japan, its history, and its culture comes from that book. for the record, all of the asian saga books are thinly-veiled (and accurately-det...

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...

Re: Penguin hiatus 2018

My annual retreat is upon us. Today is my last day on the board until Monday, April 2. I'll be going dark after tonight's game. I'll still be reachable via PM (or, of course, shining the Penguin signal in the night sky). I think. Gmail started marking JBoard notifications as spam. I think I've got ...

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 ...

far and away the easiest final of the week, surprised it wasn't a triget.
Just because you knew it doesn't make it easy and I'm sure the poll will bear that out.
Survey says (so far) ... Kirk is right. This is polling 25 points below Wednesday's. (And it's polling as the third easiest.)

Hey, settle down. It was just meant as a geographical term.
Not from this perspective, it ain't.
