Re: Trivia Nationals social

I’m terrible with remembering names, be they user names or real ones, so apologies if anyone is misidentified, will correct: https://i1219.photobucket.com/albums/dd438/dhkendall/E3FC99E0-7A0C-4C41-8262-1F5BA0B8E9D9_zpsvbilxltm.jpeg Clockwise from bottom left: morbeedo, hbomb1947, Woof, Armandillo, d...

Re: Jeopardy 2019 North American Audition Tour

I think the passing score was well above 35 at TN to keep numbers down. But no complaints here- they came to TN to get better players. To get on the show, be good at trivia and be good tv. That would certainly explain why people I would have expected to pass the test didn't do so. I look at it this...

If it’s ok with everyone who was there, my wife took a few pictures of our get together I could post. (Some of us already have our real picture as our board avatar anyways)

Re: Summer reruns 2019

I wonder what percentage of people here watch any of the summer reruns. For me, it's a 6-week break and 30 extra minutes of free time every weekday. I’ll be watching every day (or most every day) mainly because I use J! for practice and my audition is in less than two weeks. (Yeah, it’s Kids Week b...

Re: JBoard Demographic Survey

When this poll was first posted, there were no respondents in the 70+ bracket. I am now over 70, and I would not be surprised if a few other boardies are, as well. I hope so, anyway. Being the oldest person in the room is not something I relish. It has been over five years so I would imagine you ar...

I *think* (though it's very likely I'm mistaken) that Ben looks familiar, and I *think* it may be because I auditioned with him in Kansas City in 2015. If so, great to see him get on!

Re: Jeopardy 2019 North American Audition Tour

I had to cancel my Savannah audition at the last minute because I lost my job and couldn't afford to go. It was one of the worst feelings of my life. Well that really sucks. Next time, don’t be afraid to ask for help in such a situation...we might have got you there Yep. In these circumstances, I w...

Geez, people. Everybody get down off your hind legs. Nobody needs to do lecturing on either side here. The winner is the first person to back off and speak respectfully without waiting for the other side to do it.
Do they also get to go first in DJ!? :lol:

Re: Messages will return to Final

I know that during James's run TPTB changed the rules to prevent people from using Final to send greetings or messages. The ruling is that any such message will now be considered part of the contestant's response (which likely will make the response incorrect). There's an easy workaround. Write you...

I think Joon Pahk mentioned one of his games had no wrong answers. If I have time later today I’ll look for it.

Re: Monday, June 3, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Something else occurred to me: Ken was defeated *just* shy of the all time record of number of consecutive wins on a game show (which I believe was 75 but I can’t remember what show) James was defeated *just* shy of the regular play money record. And there’s people who say both didn’t want those rec...

Ken lost on a corporate question. Parlayed that into paid advertisements for both FedEx and H&R block.

James lost on a Shakespeare question. He’s been dead for 400 years.

I see J! activated the dhkendall-signal.

Fun fact: the current (post 1947) anthem might have been composed by Johann Holzer

Re: Jeopardy 2019 North American Audition Tour

Chicago, 38. Hope that’s not too low! Well, hell. Was hoping you might have picked Milwaukee... Milwaukee’s not far (I’m honestly wondering why they chose two cities so close together) and if it was up to me that might’ve been my choice but I wound up making a short list (including those two) had m...
