Re: Non-Jeopardy Canon 2019 Current Events Trivia Study Guide

I’ve seen this in so many threads and haven’t been able to figure it out...what does TOM stand for? "Tease out metric". It's not really a metric or "measure of" something, though, so it's a bit of a misnomer. For example: Clue: The title of this musical that opened on Broadway in 1964 was inspired ...

I was unfamiliar with Montgomery Ward, and thought it sounded like an old English hospital. :oops:

I know it's a stretch, but, thoughts on "pommel" for "An 8-letter Olympic game of horse"? Um, "pommel" is six letters... Wow, good point! I was so focused on the double letters in the middle that I glossed right over that. "Ppommell," on the other hand..... Ah, yes, the Welsh spelling. I did say it...

I hate that I can no longer program my own computer, and haven't been able to for at least 25 years. Maybe one of you can help me. I want to write a simple program on my Windows 7 PC using tools that the PC already has or that I can download for free. The program would do the following: 1. Request ...

Re: It's happening!!! The GOAT Tourney, w/ Brad + Ken + James

I interpret the "Trebek" exclusion as just a simple way of saying you aren't eligible for regular J! if you have been on Teen Tournament, College Tournament, Teachers Tournament, etc.... just as a way of making it clear. Perhaps. But they could just say "on any version of Jeopardy! ," which they do...

I could be wrong, but I think this is the first time that both a Teachers Tournament winner and a College Champion have each won their QF games in the same ToC (with a footnote that Lilly Chin and Jason Sterlacci both advanced from the same QF game in 2017). Does one of the resident statisticians/fa...
