Re: Tuesday, April 17, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

I missed Final because of the break-in of NBC News to announce the death of former First Lady Barbara Bush. Is there any way to watch Jeopardy! on the web later in such scenarios (e.g. break-ins for severe weather or pre-emptions for local special programming)? The Reddit guy is helpful in such sit...

Re: Wednesday, April 18, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

I came up with truth and life quickly, but just couldn't cross the bridge from "via" to "way." It seems so obvious in retrospect. Looking through the comments so far I see that I'm not alone. My precall was "Agnus Dei." My precall was it cannot be as basic as naming St. Jerome. It was probably best...

Re: Reretaken Down

Congratulations to Todd Gross for another NYT crossword puzzle. The 4/19 puzzle is on the easy side of how things go on a Thursday for most of the fills and a fun solve.

So how did you know to go to him? Lucky guess? As others have said, it just made sense to piece together from what I already knew about him. There aren't that many immortal warriors (as opposed to gods) that are well known so it was the only answer that made sense. Whereas I just saw nothing to pie...

Re: POLL: A Hypothesis about Auditions

Not to convince everyone that I am a conspiracy theorist, but . . . I thought that they brought on some fairly tough opponents for Ken Jennings, to prevent complete run-aways in the games. (Not that it did that much good.) Was this your impression, or not? One of the contestants I knew ran a local ...

So what were the keywords on this FJ! anyway? There's lots of immortality and there are lots of warriors in Greek mythology.
Make it a Venn diagram keeping in mind it's the FJ! round of the College Championship.

It's one name in my opinion.

I didn’t know anything about his family, but the bit about his mother wanting to make him immortal made it obvious. Rebecca’s slip-up on heart/kidney gave away the lead. Then her all-in bet on FJ gave Jordan a chance to win. One post Rebecca made on Reddit: This Classics major was sure hoping for a...

I want to say the first movie was Easy A. The second was, as you say, The Princess Bride, and the third was the first Iron Man.
On the table before the movies play there is Moulin Rouge! and Scott Pilgrim vs. the World. It's at 14 seconds when the graphic has, "AND GAMES".
