Re: J! in the Media

For anyone who watches Young Sheldon, a brief clip of this episode (the first round's category reveals) was shown in tonight's episode: http://www.j-archive.com/showgame.php?game_id=315 Line added and pretty funny that Missy busted dad that the only reason George was watching was because the remote...

Re: Are there any Tournaments in store for Season 38?

Bamaman wrote: Thu Dec 02, 2021 3:07 pm It said 36 players with nine hour-long episodes.

So nine teams of four?
Perhaps it's 36 students from 12 colleges in teams of three players more like Peyton's College Bowl.

An hour show can have two games for the preliminary rounds?

Whew! J1 is still alive. That Krewe of Thoth that Sinnott mentioned was fun to see on a Google search. Ken ended that chat segment with his on point brand of humor. Jessica mentioned her writing and fashion reporting work. Too bad the chat did not work out to allow her to say Go Fug Yourself on TV. ...

Re: SQL errors on the site

It's one of those things and I'm used to it although I hate when I've got the game freshly archived and have to wait to get in just to post the link. On Saturday around poll time I never have a problem, so it could be too many people on weekdays checking in about long-running champs?

New Delhi here. Timing-wise, it's not far off. 1911 vs. the clue's 1913. For Mark to feel confident eliminating it, he must know something I don't! India didn't get independence until 1947. Don't always count on me knowing something you don't, RKS, as it can be the other way like doihavettoreally p...

Ken announced the Professors Tournament starting on Monday. Nice work by Amy and David on the hoops category to play it early and well. Amy is a great player though she might want to immediately switch categories after finding DD2 in one instead of staying there. Ken demonstrated more hosting skill ...

Thanks for the kind words, all! It was the ride of a lifetime. And twitter thinks I'm a serial killer on adderall so there's always that! I do wish I had the chance to show some more personality, but the fact is I knew I was up against a superchampion, and there was no room for kicking back. No reg...

Thank you for the clarification and insight about chicken skin, Pam.

How much do the writers love DJ! 23? 7th clue in calendar year 2021 with time for another clue. Or two.

SOUNDS SERIOUS $400: Cutis anserina is nothing to worry about; it's just this "fowl" reaction to cold or fear Amy was negged for chicken skin. Google turns it up. Bad judging? Nothing in the category or clue seems to limit it to what was rebounded (my response) correctly. Didn't matter in ...

Pam won the J! round with 7800-1600-1600 after the 1st segment and up to 11200 when the round ended. Great playing, Pam, to put Amy on notice that she was in for a match. Amy won the more important DJ! and FJ! rounds to hit double digits as Ken noted. Out after 9 wins were Buzzy, Jason Keller and Da...

Re: Monday, November 29, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Amy lost 4000 on DD3 to drop to 15200 and still had 30000 for the FJ! round. Quite impressive. If I can get 28/30 in the J! round then that means there will be a bunch of perfectos today for the first 30 clues. Credit to Nishanth for being in the red and managing to get 2nd place money by the end. T...
