David Madden and Jennifer Giles were the featured players today leaving 5 x 2 next week for a perfect lead-up to the draft.
Apparently David Madden's wins happened two years earlier than they actually did.

Re: Wednesday, September 12, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I got Guillotin without the E. :geek: I didn’t (I said Robespierre) but I dislike the “executive decision” to accept a response that is 100% wrong. Well, I guarantee that there would have been an uproar if they didn't take all 3 answers as being correct. I'd say that without the executive decision,...

Re: Jeopardy All-Star Games

Also, I'm curious: does anybody know why Madden got the opportunity to play this time around after he turned down (or was barred from?) the BotD tournament on legal grounds related to his job? Having no further knowledge of the situation, my guess is that he probably decided to cut ties with whomev...

ETA: The intro shows the date September 21, 2001. Points to whomever can pinpoint that date's significance in Jeopardy! history.
There's a pretty big clue right near the date in the intro.

And as I've been expecting for awhile now, I am further resigned to many (12?) more months of preparation time,

time spent in fervent prayer that another Jennings-caliber outlier doesn't arrive and qualify for the TOC :?
The most number of regular-play games won by a ToC champion is 9.

Re: Jeopardy All-Star Games

Jeopardy usually has 3 tournaments or special events a year to coincide with sweeps months - November, February and May. February = All Star tournament Does anyone know the plans for November and May? I would presume that one of them is a College championship but I do not know which one. The Teen T...

Re: Jeopardy All-Star Games

At first glance, I'd think the weakest player would play FJ. It's only one question and therefore subject to the highest variance. The strongest player naturally plays DJ. There are some "weak" players in this field that I wouldn't want touching Final Jeopardy! with a 10-foot pole if I were a capta...

Re: Jeopardy All-Star Games

I'll watch, but I think TPTB are trying way to hard with this. And in the end, it just means that there are now 20 less spots for contestants up for grabs this year. I feel as though the few hundred people who look at JBoard aren't really the target audience here. That being said, I'm legit excited...

the Reddit thread got deleted, so I've got to post here.
I think you might have confused "thread got deleted" with "all of Reddit went down temporarily"

Re: Football pre-emptions

Week 1 for the NFL has two Monday Night Games. The first one is Jets @ Lions at 7:10 ET and the second one is Raiders @ Rams at 10:20 PT. These are ESPN games except locally they have to be covered as well. In the Bay Area it's KGO that will show the Raiders game. The season premieres of both J! & ...

Discord chat devoted to sharing answers during the game, which I find to be next-level cheating.
The Terms of Service disagrees with your assessment.

It specifically states that you're allowed the help of up to 25 others during a game (through any means not provided by HQ)
