Re: 2020 Online Test announced - Jan 28, 29, 30

Well why not, I guess? Just registered. We'll see what happens. If I understand the rules, we can't take the online test for real until after the 18 months is up. Taking it early could result in disqualification. "If you have never been a Jeopardy! contestant and have not participated in a Jeopardy...

Re: Final Jeopardy! Clues

MOVIES: All but three minutes of this classic 1957 film take place inside one small room. What is Twelve Angry Men? Witness for the Prosecution! I would have said Rope Wrong year for the US film, but as it turns out, there was an Australian feature film based on the same play. Though I'm not sure i...

Re: What Would You Ask Alex?

Does he ever find himself rooting for (or against) any of the contestants? And does he ever find himself wondering "How did this person get on the show?"

If he answered either of these, I'm sure he would be diplomatic.

Re: Friday, December 20, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

The FJ! clue had me match Claire for the proper title while Eric and Lucy had the extra leading article that does not matter. 1902 + "riverboat" = done as I was writing even before Alex read "deeper" into the clue. The clue's "this" is both the rest of the sentence (which includes a "the") and the ...

Re: Reretaken Down

A contestant on Wheel of Fortune tonight, Alexandra Minton, said that when she was her son's age, her father was a five-time champ on another game show. A few moments of research later, I found out she slightly inflated his achievements, as she is the daughter of 1986 4xer Gary Palmer. ... Minton w...

Definitely gettable, but a lot to process and a lot to write in 30 seconds.
It took me a few seconds of elimination to figure out what the answer must be - plus counting the nine words just to be sure. I would've been scribbling away as fast as I could.

Re: Long-standing Jeopardy Traditions That We haven't seen in a long time

I miss the players walking out during the introductions. Speaking as one who slipped and nearly fell "entering the studio" for his first game, I don't miss the walk-ons at all. Having the contestants already placed at the start of the show makes the game friendlier to less physically mobile contest...

Maybe a combination of question plus comment/joke. Or maybe just the correct question, to psych out opponents. But I'm not sure.
