Re: Summer Hiatus Challenge 2018--Round 3 Instant Replay (SPOILERS)

It's only points, so I don't want to make too big a deal about it, but it looks like something might have gone wrong with the scoring on Round 3 Day 6. I've been credited with 69 points, but I think that should be 73 points. The only question I missed was the 4 pointer in "A Capital Idea". That sho...

Re: This just in! New season of Millionaire (2018) seeks contestants

Anyone in the know as to when new episodes start airing? Sounds like there will be lots of familiar faces to root for this season! 8-) September 10 is my expectation and if the pattern holds it's new episodes for three weeks in the double run markets to make 30 episodes aired over 15 weekdays. Last...

************ I added what I had of 7/12/89: http://www.j-archive.com/showgame.php?game_id=6090 Note the top-row Daily Double in Double Jeopardy at KISSES for $200 (which would likely be a bottom-row clue today). And the contestant response at KISSES for $1000 is almost certainly Marguerite, who sho...

Re: LearnedLeague 78 - Official Thread

Hoping I didn't renew my registration too late....got it in this morning, but it says my status is "provisional (rookie)." Anybody else ever have their stuff expire the day before registration is due? Were you able to get in that season, or no? Worried for nothing. Back in C Prairie 2 with at least...

Re: New old games in the J! Archive

For MOVIES $300 I did not add any kind of note. Is that quote correct? Does Scheider say it several times? The same way each time or different ways? I took a quick look on YT and found the line said differently. If a fan of the movie has a strong need for some kind of ERRATUM then let me know and I...

Re: Summer Hiatus Challenge 2018--Round 3 Instant Replay (SPOILERS)

Singer is major negbait for the 6-pointer in "Tributes". He didn't die until 1875. Howe died in 1867. But since the correct answer hinges on people knowing those dates, this is much too hard for a 6-point question. I think you ought to consider a replacement question. (Although, since I got it righ...

Re: Summer Hiatus Challenge 2018--Round 3 Instant Replay (SPOILERS)

In a small sample of responses it looks like the American Artists went through the SHC valuator with the assigned points not quite matching the player results of difficulty order.

Ah, I butchered the Retronym category, some times giving the old word instead of the new word, and some times giving the new thing that triggered the retronym. Should've taken my time and thought it through better.
