Re: Millionaire 2018-19 Season Discussion [SPOILERS]

This August is Millionaire's 20th anniversary in the US. It will be disappointing if the syndicated version has seen its end, but perhaps ABC is planning something for the end of Summer? They've certainly filled their Summer schedule with all manner of game shows, and they've been doing well enough ...

James would have won the car on the syndicated weekly version of the Fleming Jeopardy!

I don't know if this episode has come up in this thread, but a fun fact about the deciding game of the 1990 college championship, the double jeopardy round board for that game is featured on the cover of "The Jeopardy! Book"
That is a fun fact, and I don't think it's come up.

Alas, the indicators that this is the end for the show are becoming more evident.
I fear you are correct and I hope that you are not.

Did I really just miss this FJ! ? I thought "seeking" and went with The Flash. Maybe hearing Alex say it would have helped.

I kinda like that idea, but let's have five lecterns just to outdo Super Jeopardy! and add more work for me recoding the Archive again.
Maybe after you've programmed in the Battle of the Bay Area Brains game.

Re: A question about Coryat scoring...

That makes sense, but how are these scores "normally" determined? If you're watching and somebody rings in and knows it, you may have known it given an extra few seconds, but it becomes irrelevant once the answer is known. I know most questions are either you know it or you don't, but things like w...

Re: 2019 Current Events Study Guide

Tiger Woods wins the 2019 Masters. It's his 5th green jacket, 15th major title, and first major win since the 2008 US Open. I honestly didn't think he'd win another major. Neither did I, but at 16 to 1 he was worth a flyer and I would have rooted for him anyway. Tiger Woods is now both the youngest...

Jeopardy! article from Games Magazine (1987)

Hey all. Gonna pimp my blog for just a minute. I scanned a pair of old (more than 30 years) Games Magazine articles about Jeopardy! and Wheel of Fortune that people might be interested in. Have a look, won't you? (And if anyone can confirm a link to Roger Dionne's Wheel games, I'd be ever so gratefu...

Got my highest ranking in a while in the Sleep 1DS. I took a chance and moneyed a couple of guesses that turned out to be right; that (almost) never happens.

Missed 7, not too bad. I always forget acronyms and initialisms, so pdf and NOAA weren't coming. Also missed barley, halfpipe, Audi, Citadel (Colleges and Universities, another duff category for me), and Aidy Bryant. (Audy, Aidy, Aidy, Audi.)

Just wondering, but does Myron have the record for highest single day winnings for someone who didn't make a ToC? Only counting regular games, of course. I think Ken has that record, depending on how you consider the UToC. But other than him, I'd like to know, too. ETA: Vermonter has been keeping t...

Wait, that's a 1-day score???

Holy crap.

I mean, that beats Frank Spangenberg's total in one day.
