Re: Who Wants to be a Millionaire before Jeopardy

I was on Millionaire in 2003 and then Jeopardy in 2016. Interestingly, I tried out for Millionaire once and got "The Call" a month later. It took me 6 in-person tryouts over 18 years to get on Jeopardy. I really don't know if being on Millionaire affected it or not. Also, my first 5 Jeopardy tryouts...

Re: New Trivia Resource

My assumption has been that anybody on this board in particular, or that is even mindful of trivia resources in general, will be acutely aware of errors in past editions--been discussed here in the past and on Amazon quite a bit.

Re: New Trivia Resource

I used the prior edition to help study for my episode, and while I did notice some errors in that edition and the book didn't directly help in my particular episode, it was very helpful in bumping up my LearnedLeague scores. I am pretty sure I would be a rundle lower if I hadn't used this book. Man...

Thank you folks.
And for the record, I'm not making a dime from sales.

New Trivia Resource

I just served as editor for my first book—“Game Show Trivia”. If you recall, past editions had many errors. I fact and spelling checked 15,000+ trivia items, so hopefully it’s 99 and 44/100% pure. For your future trivia endeavors! My picture is on the back! Make sure you get the 6th edition! https:/...

Anyone else think that Alex was a bit of a tool to Joe during the interview? I know Alex was just trying to make light of a difficult situation, but Joe was obviously struggling. I don't think Alex's approach helped any.

Re: Wednesday, June 15, 2016 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

In the "a question is only easy if you know it" category, I had no clue on FJ. Could barely come up with anything. Said "Manchurian Candidate" just to have something to say. What in the clue was supposed to point me to Psycho? Am I supposed to know that Psycho was in 1960? Or all the camera setups a...

Re: LL69: for the LLama Drama

Just 37% knew Missile Command? Really? Am I THAT old? As a Mets fan, I immediately got Strawberry. That led me directly to Huckleberry. From there, I was able to figure out Raspberry. But I was VERY thrown by the mayor. I figured, "It can't be Marion Barry, because 'Barry' is spelled wrong." I wish ...

Help with a math analogy?

A friend had this question on a test and asked me to take a look at it. I can't find the relationship between the terms. Any help?

1/(2 - x) : x/(2x-1) :: ________ : 3

He says all 4 possible answers were fractions, but he can only remember 1/3 being an option.

Re: Thursday, April 7, 2016 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

FJ was a little tricky as Duke of Normandy would seem to be a reasonable title, but thanks to Henry V I knew that the proximate cause of the Hundred Year's War was competing claims to the throne of France, so King of France was an easy get despite its cognitive dissonance with reality. Good run, Je...

Was the Marcos miss $800? If Jeff has 15400 for the FJ! round against 22900 then that could have meant victory even with Ken playing DDs for +12500. The Coryats for the gentlemen were dead even at 14600 apiece. Clever Hans? I was surprised the Archive had two hits and not surprised the previous one...

Re: Thursday, April 7, 2016 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

So, Kooz, why did you turn them down? Very simply, they charged dues. Paying money to hang around smart people didn't seem very smart. (I just checked their site again and the dues are way less than when I passed many years ago. Also, they no longer accept the test that I passed. So there ya go!) A...
