Re: Wednesday, October 5, 2016 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

Either a light bulb blew or Keith Williams just shot himself. :shock: As for the FJ! clue itself, I focused too much on "financial institution" and spent the first 20 seconds trying to think of an appropriate 4-word phrase ending with "bank" before giving up on that and writing "too big to fail" thi...

Re: Monday, October 26, 2015 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

Never would've gotten that FJ! I came up with Thriller at first, realized that didn't satisfy the "appropriately" TOM at all, and I decided "appropriately" referred to CDs replacing vinyl records, so I put Video Killed the Radio Star, though it turns out that's even further from 1984. Plus calling i...

Re: Tuesday, February 17, 2015 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

Given how anal the judges are, I knew they were going to reverse that Selena response as soon as it happened. (Which I don't really disagree with, because you can't know for sure she already knew it and the mistake could have disadvantaged the other players.) Don't they write an alternate clue for e...

Re: Friday, January 9, 2015 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

For some reason, I was having a brain fart during Final and couldn't remember the pen name "Mark Twain." With time running out I gave up and put down "Samuel Clemens" instead, which I presume would've been acceptable. :lol:

I usually don't, mostly because I usually am trying to blurt it out in the couple seconds between Alex finishing the clue and a contestant responding.

Re: Friday, January 2, 2015 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

Judges question: Would "drought" have been accepted for the "opposite of a surplus" clue? I thought deficit was a better response after it was given, but looking at definitions for drought and surplus in the dictionary, I'm having a hard time finding any reason why drought would be wrong... No idea ...

What a mix of contestants. We got a rare peek behind their podiums and ought now have a better understanding why the three contestants are usually so equal in height. The middle contestant seems to have left puberty behind a while ago, while the right contestant is barely HALF the height of Big Bir...

Re: New tie-breaker rule: Yea or nay

I think the best way they could handle tiebreaks, if they really feel they're necessary, is the same way they break ties between second and third: whoever had the higher pre-FJ! score wins. For simplicity's sake, I'd say they should still declare co-champs if they're tied both at the beginning and e...

LTaM warning sounds, 4 video clues left...and they finish the round? From now on, every time they end a round with clues unrevealed, I'm calling bull****. ISTR hearing several years ago, possibly on the old boards, that there's a rarely-if-ever mentioned (on-air, at least) rule that if they're down...

"Genesis 3" = Adam and Eve. Huh? That's wrong?! Who else could it freaking BE?!?! …………… okay, that's it, I am officially too stupid for this game anymore. Don't feel bad, I completely forgot about the serpent conversation and went with Cain & Abel. At least you gave it a guess; in Final it's not li...

Re: If you were in second place in a double-lock game...

Ah crap, I voted before reading the post and somehow misread "double-lock" as "lock-tie" for some reason. :oops: I'd just bet nothing, or at least not enough to risk losing the extra grand for second. I'm already aware that I'm not that great of a Jeopardy! player; if I did get on the show somehow I...

I got FJ with about 5 seconds left and finished writing down "blacklash" just as the think music was ending. And then pretend Alex told you, "Ooh, sorry, you added an L in there, and our judges say we can't accept that." :lol: I concur that the FJ wasn't well-worded. Spent 25 seconds going through ...

Re: Monday, March 24, 2014 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

So, my thought process through Final Jeopardy!: - Custer and Crazy Horse had nicknames? That's news to me. - May as well focus on 1930s comedy acts then. Laurel and Hardy? Abbott and Costello? Maybe it's "Who," like who's on first? Maybe that would work for Crazy Horse, but I don't get any logical w...

I don't care what others think, I'm impressed with Arthur's recent domination and hope he sticks around for awhile longer.

Re: Monday, October 14, 2013 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

Is "war bonds" acceptable for the clue where they took "savings bonds?" I forget the clue, but wasn't there a date in it? War bonds predate savings bonds by over a century. Thanks... Yeah, I thought that war bonds was just a subset of savings bonds, but apparently it's more complicated than that?
