Re: Thursday, May 23, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I think you all need to give Nate a break. We here have the advantage of hindsight, both knowing James's history and knowing the outcome of the game. Nate, OTOH, wouldn't have realized what he was up against until he was already atop the podium (unless, of course, he'd seen an earlier game, in whic...

Re: Friday, May 24, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

So we were that close to the first 4-figure total from James I beg to differ. I don't think for a second he's going to seriously answer Las Vegas when the clue specifies Idaho. If you ask me, he's circumventing the new shout out rule. I could be wrong, but that's what immediately came to mind. Noth...

Re: Friday, May 24, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

A couple of prior betting things came up for James with the Chargers being his first betting loss and Susan mentioning the Phillies World Series win when James bet on the Rays that year. James got a good reaction from Alex at chat time when James said about possibly working for a baseball club, “bef...

Re: Thursday, May 23, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

At some point Ken must have written his name vertically since it’s only three letters. James doing it with 5 letters looked unusual and harder to read. It’s only a couple of minutes to let chat time play. The payoff was there with Nate’s story about getting the call and his wife happy that she would...

Pardon if this is discussed elsewhere, if/when will James’ run catch up to real time- when will contestants know about him from TV vs watching him only in studio. The first game with James was Thursday, April 4th. The Teachers Tournament taped a few days prior to his airing debut. Jackie Fuchs had ...

Re: Wednesday, May 22, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Leading up to James’s appearances there was a promo that mentioned records will be broken and the audio included, “$110,000” and “Two million dollars.” It now seems very likely that the promo spot was not kidding around. Would you mind spoilering that for others who, like me, didn't want to know fu...

Re: Wednesday, May 22, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

James had a new way for declaring his wager with, “Two dimes.” James tried to clarifying he meant 2000 and Alex indicated he understood. Liz found DD2 with her opening selection of the DJ! round, not that it did her any good. That kind of Greek mythology word origin stuff is often no gimme, so I won...

Re: Tuesday, May 21, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

As good as James outplayed his opponents a route to defeat could be as simple as a miss on DD2 and an opponent in five figures finding and converting DD3 to have the lead for the FJ! round. It was all reasonably possible today. Since all of these shows were taped in February (or whenever) how aware...

Re: Tuesday, May 21, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

The players did not hit a speedbump until clue 39 for the Ionesco play stumper. Jason was in the game a lot more than the scoreboard might indicate. Jason’s clueless stubbornness for going back to 1990s SONGS was not the best place to uncover a DD. Jason still had a chance if James had missed DD2 in...

Re: Monday, May 20, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Alex opened the DJ! round by commenting that the players did not miss any clues in the J! round. Naturally, clue 1 then had each of the challengers dropping $2000 on misses. My scoresheet does not like scoring changes before the reveal of the FJ! clue as I had to adjust the numbers for both James an...
