Re: New old games in the J! Archive

Joe gets the honest dumbass award. :lol: At least it made no difference for anything. The clue stumped me and I could only guess a baseball player I knew died that year in hoping he got appointed to something of note. This is the game! I've mentioned it on this board a couple of times, but I always...

Re: Wednesday, April 8, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

So we're letting contestants omit articles in the middle of titles now? Is this a new rule? I confidently expected a score reversal on Londyn's "What is The Lion, Witch and Wardrobe?" But we came back from the break and no mention was made. After that I knew better than to expect a reversal for Kyl...

I added 4/28/93: http://www.j-archive.com/showgame.php?game_id=6745 I would capitalize Widow Clicquot. I'd never heard of her before. Sounds fascinating.

Re: Reruns to start May 4th

August 3-14 is the Million Dollar Masters tournament. My predictions for the next four weeks are: August 17-28: Season 36 College Championship August 31-September 11: Season 36 Teachers Tournament I saw a PDF (with no sourcing) saying the last four weeks of reruns would comprise the last College Ch...

Re: Final Jeopardy! Clues

US PRESIDENTS The only president to serve less than four full years in each of two separate terms Who was FDR? (First term was Mar 4, 1933 to Jan 20, 1937 due to passage of the 20th amendment, and died during his fourth term) My guess was McKinley, thinking that his first term was one day shorter t...

She distinctly remembers sitting there and watching with a jar of Jiffy peanut butter and a spoon. Not only does McGruff date no further back than 1980, but Jiffy peanut butter has never existed!

Re: Fourth Podium Poll for 2/4/2020

I was able to reconstruct my LT from a post in the discussion thread. I said I had $3,200 in the J! round, and since there was $3,800 available, no $200s missed, and only one $600 missed, Dodge City has to be the one I didn't get. (On my reread, I got Dodge City but blanked on Ralph Kramden's name, ...

http://www.j-archive.com/showgame.php?game_id=6737 Bob's response on SONGS THAT "DO" is entered exactly as he gave it, so I didn't format it as a title, which would have needed 2 "diddy"s.

Russia stretches into the western hemisphere near Alaska. The International Date Line fixes the border between Eastern and Western Hemisphere. But I don't know why they say that Africa is in all four hemispheres as the (0,0) coordinate is to the bottom left of Africa in the Atlantic and not even Sa...

Re: Learned League 85 - Official Thread

I went 12/12 in the Cryptic Clues 2 1DS, earned 20 points off the maximum, and finished at #16. I moneyed improperly just once, and it was a classic 1DS dilemma of "I have an answer for this, and if it's right I should probably money it, but I really can't be sure that it's right." I was quite uncer...

I forgot to mention this, but on today’s rerun, the part at the end where Alex announced another big winner was on tomorrow was changed to one where Alex said something like, “Watch Emma in the Tournament of Champions starting Monday.” I noticed there was a similar thing for James yesterday. I didn...

Ruthie Tompson turns 110 in three weeks! I found this page in 2017, not long after the death of Zhou Youguang, creator of the Pinyin romanization system for Mandarin, at 111 (on the day after his birthday, in fact), when a Facebook friend posted about his death and wondered whether that was the long...

Re: 2020 Current Events Discussion Thread

British singer Dame Vera Lynn has died at the age of 103. In other news, Olivia de Havilland turns 104 in a couple of weeks. And Beverly Cleary turned 104 a couple of months ago. Both women could easily provide material for their own category. My recommendation to the writers is don't wait until af...

Upon listening in slow motion, I think it's possible she was saying "Kristen," but it's ambiguous enough that TPTB had to give her the benefit of the doubt since Alex didn't ask her to repeat.

Re: Reruns to start May 4th

I just didn't think they would rerun the Teachers Tournament in August, since that's just two months after it originally aired. Last year, they showed all of the tournaments except Avi Gupta's Teen Tournament and I think that was because they didn't want to rerun it two months after it aired. If yo...
