Re: Tuesday, June 18, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Eesha found out the clue was a little more difficult than that getting caught with the current monarch. Too bad she did not recall the clue earlier in the game that wanted Elizabeth I as that likely ruled out QEII for the FJ! round. After writing the correct name I put the pen down and then wondere...

Re: Jeopardy 2019 North American Audition Tour

On FB there was a post about a pub trivia night and J! contestant coordinators coming up in Washington, D.C., so Austin's place has company for that format of potentially finding contestants. The way I read the thread about it on the LL message board, it was ambiguous, but it sounds like Mehrun's e...

Said Sydney for Melbourne- still don't get the name connection to William Lamb You didn't need to know Lamb to get this one; just the Port Phillip Bay connection, which appeared in the $2K Birthplaces clue on J! just last Tuesday. http://j-archive.com/showgame.php?game_id=6318&highlight=melbourne C...

Re: Jeopardy 2019 North American Audition Tour

I had to cancel my Savannah audition at the last minute because I lost my job and couldn't afford to go. It was one of the worst feelings of my life. Sorry about this. If you keep in touch with TPTB, maybe you can reschedule for another city before the next online test. Hope it works out! I emailed...

Only 26% knew Oklahoma when given 1889 and “sooner”?
Maybe people's radar was off.

Perhaps it's the part of me that's still annoyed about missing this FJ a couple of years ago, but 'no new cases in 40 years' = instaget for me. Finally a 5/5 week.
There was some atrocious wagering on that FJ from 2017.

Re: Friday, June 14, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

there's no correct response to this FJ That's silly. The last case could've been in 1776 and it still would've been accurate to say that there hadn't been a case in 40 years. I assume you read my entire post, including the ETA that was added 12 minutes before your post, and that you're just trying ...

Re: Friday, June 14, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Did the FDA approve its first-ever drug for that in 2018, though? But Final generally isn't about knowing the arcane pinning fact; it's about being able to suss out the correct response. Because the clue doesn't specify "worldwide", and because the FDA is a U.S. institution, a player can be forgive...

Re: Thursday, June 13, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I said "Hellenic" for "Hellenistic" on a 50-50-90. It turns out that the Hellenic era immediately preceded the Hellenistic era. IMO that's some neg-bait right there.

Re: Wednesday, June 12, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

As I wrote, it's a poorly worded clue. Even the way it handles the 1939 date might be seen as a misdirection, as the product had existed before that year , but was given a big new push at the 1939 World's Fair in New York -- a fair that was not held in people's homes. EJ's answer is the only plausi...

Re: Tuesday, June 11, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

It's amazing that we've had five consecutive new champs win $35,000+ on their first appearance, but there hasn't been a 5-time champion since James lost. I'm hoping Dan goes on to be a 5-day champ, or I hope there'll be 5-day champ anytime before the current season wraps up. Umm, including today's ...

It's so interesting with this particular game since James answered 97% of questions correctly during his run that he did the low wager to lock out the third place player. He can very reasonably think he will know the answer, wager everything and hope Emma gets it wrong, which is his only chance of ...
