In a crossword puzzle I worked last night, one of the clues was "arbitrate". The desired response was "mediate". :roll:

Re: Thursday, May 6, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I applied the 50-50-90 rule to go with Liechtenstein. Any reasonable way to know it was Andorra instead? --Bob I mean, when you think of Charlemagne, do you really think of Switzerland and Austria? I mean, I don't. I suppose his empire did extend into what is now Liechtenstein, but I think more of ...

Re: Thursday, May 6, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Discarded Monaco*, Liechtenstein, Luxembourg*, and Belgium* to arrive at the correct response. The correct response just sounded more like a princess name, or at least it has the suffix letter that is more commonly feminine in Romance languages. But apparently, the etymology of the country name is n...

Re: Wednesday, May 5, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

The state of the Archive at the time of the question is irrelevant. Mark's question is valid whether he knew the Archive needed to be corrected or not. That's because his question is about the clue as it actually appeared onscreen . He wants to know, should that actual clue have a note or not? My a...

Re: Wednesday, May 5, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

SJ30 was "Secretary of State Hamilton Fish made this, the settling of disputes by a third party, a standard part of diplomacy". They accepted and were presumably looking for "mediation". Mrs P guessed "arbitration". Judges? 100% acceptable. It's questionable to me whether mediation should have been...

No, Mark's message was before he realized about the mistranscription.

At the end of the Jeopardy! Round you can catch Whitaker extracting a tissue or hanky from his pocket, I presume to mop sweat. That was something I wish I had had when on that stage.

Re: Rename the "lock-tie"?

You’re still locked into a tie at the end of FJ. You’re no longer locked into playing the next day. Except you're not locked into a tie because it could be statistically beneficial for you to go outright for the win in FJ and avoid the tiebreaker round entirely. You could still lose from a lock gam...

I think it should stay lock-tie.

There is still a tie at the end of FJ.
Can you help me understand this a little better? It's not the "tie" part that's in issue, but the "lock" part.

I don't "LV" the apparent typo in the $800 clue.
Oh, wait, was that Mark's typo or the show's? Because that changes everything. I was playing off the Archive and would have easily gotten "LV LCY".

Re: Wednesday, May 5, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

VWLLSS STCMS $800 and $1000 should have been swapped. Sometimes I think the writers purposely put the hardest clues in the second-lowest box on the board just to give the players a break/add some dynamics to the game: get an $800 clue wrong, make it up with $1000 on the next clue.
