Re: Jeopardy All-Star Games

Thanks. Do the all-star players get introduced with occupations and hometowns, or some other blurb like in the celebrity matches ("He's won over four million dollars and has never been beaten by a human...") or...? It's more like the latter although it's the six captains only. It's not at the start...

Re: Jeopardy All-Star Games

Do we know/can anyone reveal the exact player placements (left/center/right)? I'll do it in spoilers just in case someone really wants to know nothing ahead of time before watching later: Alex in the champ's spot Colby in the middle Brad at spot 3 In expecting no changes tomorrow then: Buzzy at the...

Hammer would not be amused at the misdirection in PANCREAS... $800
Joke's on you. I ran the category. $800 didn't throw me at all, because "It contains notes, charts, tables & lists" obviously isn't going to be a pancreas or spleen.

Also ran the "Y" Me category.

Re: Jeopardy All-Star Games

Alex Jacob and his FJ! clue percentage at 18% is to be taken with a grain of salt as game circumstances too often dictated no need for him to play it legit.

Re: Wednesday, February 20, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

The game should come with a warning for the board member who does not like things such as ad libs and a movie character impression. Others will find it refreshing that the players are relaxed enough to have fun even in an event with big stakes in play.

Re: Wednesday, February 20, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Very strange episode with just 30 clues. The captains were introduced and Alex had envelopes naming the three teams. The team members were introduced and a table huddle was shown for each team deciding round assignments. It was not set ahead of time and the teams knew their opponents. 15 clues were ...

Re: Tuesday, February 19, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Matt let that game get away and it will not be fun for him to watch it as the lead disappears. When playing on stage a lot of the game details are hard to recall along with scoreboard nuances. The reality will hit when watching on TV without the studio aspects. Dana's break is two weeks for TV viewe...

All's Well That Ends Well Shrew was part of my precalls off the category. I do not remember all of my precalls and I'm sure I did not think of all of the comedies in the list. Whichever ones I brainstormed were at least in the comedy column. When I saw the clue it played to me as a pick a comedy an...

You might have better luck trying for The Joker's Wild, hosted by Snoop Dogg.
I didn't know that this one had been revived. They should've changed the show's name to The Smoker's Wild.
The revival got an earlier mention on this board: viewtopic.php?f=1&t=4478&p=281574

Re: Monday, February 18, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Alex would have won this game no matter how bad he would be at the buzzer. Trash like the 1898 ship and the ancient war coupled with a sole solve on the FJ! clue would be victory. Doug played DD2 and DD3 in boxes worth $3200 and bet $2800 total. I think I hear an Ariana Grande song title. That FJ! c...
