Re: Tuesday, December 18, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I get the sense that most of Conor's local watch party (assuming he has one) will get this correct.

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

I bet Alex is taking some heat for his "the other one" quip regarding Flo Jo. I interpreted that as meaning the other female athlete connected to the Joyner family. Mayhap that doesn't help regarding Internet outrage. Right. I think that's what Alex meant, but that doesn't mean people won't take it...

I had no idea about "too big to fail" before this: http://www.j-archive.com/showgame.php?game_id=5424

I didn't miss it this time.

I can't believe that 37% of llamas made the same careless mistake as me and StevenH ... using the wrong tense of 'jump'.
I can't believe that anyone on my Facebook friends list missed this question.

Had Francesco figured out the signalling device, he definitely had the knowledge for a deep run. Alas, sub-25% in first is not going to get you many places.

Anyone want to set a line on "number of online complaints received about the Bill Clinton response"?

Re: Friday, December 7, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I doubt that's happening: https://www.jeopardy.com/jbuzz#events Why would they have two of the same tournament in the same season? Is there any precedent for that? I wonder if it could be a mistake? I’m just speculating, not demanding an answer of anyone. I suppose maybe they wanted to move the tee...

Re: J! All-Star Fantasy League

I keep wondering why TPTB at Jeopardy! (arguably the most venerable and beloved game show in history) feel the need to tinker with the basic idea of how the game is played. All this is to me is a chance for a bunch of people who have already made tons of money on the game to come back and make even...

I can't recall the board member who posted it, but I like the idea of a play-in game. Winner is in the TOC and the runners-up can both be alternates to get a taste of the experience.
I believe that this idea was first floated by Vermonter.

I found the Official Rules; this might be useful to those making predictions: The number of entries an Entrant can receive is dependent upon the number of correct answers each member of such Entrant’s Fantasy Team accumulates during game-play on the Show during those special ten (10) episodes.

Re: J! All-Star Fantasy League

It would help immensely to know the matchups. Or the format, for that matter. Otherwise, not much reason to pick anything other than heavy chalk. There's no way we're going to see the matchups beforehand. The format, though, in my opinion, is absolutely essential, and the show, in my opinion, is ac...

The rights issues for Audio/Video clips are a thing.
I think they're more of a thing than you think. I'm trying to think of the last time I saw a game with zero video clues. It's also a lot easier to clear a small number of episodes than is to clear nearly 8,000.

What the hell with that FJ category? No offense to Catholic viewers but that seems a little too specific for FJ.
I'll be checking off today's Final Jeopardy as correct and I've only set foot in churches for weddings and funerals.

I assume Euphonium is alluding to the perpetual separatist movement of the French-Canadians in Quebec. Sure, but Quebec already has a capital, so why would they change it? Perhaps Euphonium has a different angle to his off-the-cuff comment, but if it's the separatist movement, then it is to create ...

I know several people who would dispute the claim that Montreal is not a national capital.
Montreal is as much a capital of anything as Vancouver or Calgary are.
