Re: Wednesday, July 18, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Yeah, in my Jersey high school we knew 'em as Cliff Notes. Figured CaitLion would say SparkNotes because they're more current Ryan surprises again! How many times have we seen a player give up those extra seconds of DD think time to blurt out an incorrect response (anagram? No. palindrome! No, sorry...

Re: TCONA 8

I regret not trying harder to get on Millionaire during the phone game days, but I was committed to J! at that time. And look at that - you made it on Jeopardy! I'm leaning towards going against the audience on this one and letting my 18 months pool time lapse before committing to any other show. T...

Re: LearnedLeague 77 - Official Thread

I had my best performance in a One-Day since French Impressionists with 10 CA and an 86th% finish in Henri Matisse

Too bad I missed 2 money questions - Hermitage (MOMA) and Pentimento (palimpseste)

I need to start thinking about my questions for my upcoming 'Clowns' One-Day, which should be epic :0)

Re: Tuesday, July 17, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I also negged with turret on the single T double T category, even though the word doesn’t fit. “Battlement” made me do a double take because I’ve been channeling Lady Macbeth of late: The raven himself is hoarse That croaks the fatal entrance of Duncan Under my battlements. Come, you spirits That te...

Doug almost fell off the riser when Alex said dates was incorrect. Mock surprise? Or did he really believe he’d nailed it? I was in Turkey a few years ago before the country really went to hell. It was May and we gorged on cherries at every stop. Knowing French sealed the deal, so this was an Instag...

Re: Tuesday, July 17, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

These boards were on the tougher side for me

Is there a mathematical logic to Michelle's FJ wager of $4,400? Or did she just bet small? She could have bet $3,601 if she expected Ryan to cover Bunny, right?

I didn't get capital punishment either - all I could come up with was "child labor" :oops:

Re: TD 388 - Mystery Theme! - Q1 revealed

Wasn't sure of the spelling of Boricua, couldn't think of any woman in a Poe poem title besides Annabel Lee (almost negged with Usher!) and avoided a clear sheep on Fort McHenry

How was pepper marked wrong on Q2? I almost went with that!

Re: TD387 - morbeedo's Revenge - Final Results

I once spent a year watching Kamchatka from 300 miles away. I was assigned to Shemya, Alaska, from May '81 through June '82. The Kamchatka peninsula was the target landing zone for then-Soviet missile tests, and the Shemya installation did airborne surveillance, radar imaging, and elint monitoring ...

I *knew* I should have gone with Mahershala.

Sheep on sheep on sheep. I thought I got the classical music one wrong, though, so I'll take it.

Contestant Line Up Week of July 16th

Does anyone know why they brought back Ryan Fenster from Seatac, Washington?
www.jeopardy.com

And since he's on the TOC tracker, I assume they'd reset the clock for him and not add new wins to his total

Or are we in reruns now?
