Re: Thursday, November 23, 2017 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

I must have a food coma, as I only got something like $12,000 for my Coryat today, at least half my average lately. stunning stumpers (Wat ____?) I was going to take TPH's place since he hasn't chimed in yet and say, with all sincerity, that I haven't heard of Wat Tyler before, and was surprised you...

Re: Wednesday, November 22, 2017 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

Got FJ by process of elimination - no religion besides Islam would logically have a calendar that starts later than the Gregorian Julian. Gregorian started in the 1500s, about 900 years after the Islamic one started. (Julian started in the first (last?) century BC with Julius Caesar. (I think you’r...

I’d like to be “swimming in the Jeopardy! pool” too, but I’d rather do it by way of a successful audition :lol: (Note to alietr in case it’s confusing, no I’m not requesting a rank change, my current one has really grown on me and I’m keeping it at ...

Temporary change. I'll change it after the 8th.
Hopefully to "Past Wheel Winner"!

Retro good luck, again.

See, that's what I love about jboard over some places *cough*Facebook*cough*, we talk about the ruling, why we agree or disagree, don't resort to name calling TPTB or anyone else, and eventually find out the behind the scenes reasoning behind it. All done calmly and reasonably. I'd wonder if we all ...

Unless you are really good at knowledge questions (think good enough to be competitive in an A rundle in Learned League), you may find yourself in over your head--as I was.

I really hope, though, that we're not entering an era where contestants feel encouraged to "be individuals." Personality comes through just fine without the shtick. But that could very well be their personality. After all Jennifer Morrow could be smiling and jovial, and you’d say “there’s someone s...

Re: Projecting When the Next ToC Competition Might Take Place

To MarkBarrett: You have answered my question, viz ., on occasion ToC play has taken place with one (or several) of the players having won fewer than five games in regular play. Jasper Matt’s TOC pages seem to clearly show that almost all the time there are people who won less than 5 games in, the ...

Willie answered with the next line in a pretty good Julio. Interestingly, ...

Buzzy was introduced with, “…who has no winnings.” I believe it was "who had no winnings yesterday" Alan: 10400-10400 (Read the Daily Double clue twice!) ??? Six previous times someone has had zero after F1 and none of them won. Lucky seven today changed that trend. You mean *sniff* Alex's pep talk...

Your post got me wondering, about last player in versus the college champ. Over the last week, I went through the Jarchive.

Re: TOC 2017 Semifinals and Finals: Predictions and Discussion [SPOILERS]

I keep underestimating Alan (because I don’t remember his games as well as many of the others), so I’ll withhold a Finals prediction because my brain is still telling me it’s either Buzzy or Austin because I keep forgetting or dismissing Alan where, from the QFs and SFs, I really shouldn’t.

And to paraphrase a statement from KJ's "Brainiac" -- Not counting TOCs and special invitations, every Jeopardy! player leaves with the same regular-game record -- each has exactly one loss in regular game play. Well, after they removed the five game cap... Most of those undefeated 5 days were brou...
