Re: Wild result after FJ (old game)

I tried to search for this game before starting a thread about it, but was unsuccessful. Sorry for any duplication. I'm on another board, and we are discussing improbable game wins. I said I would ask you knowledgable folks about it. (My upload point is offline. I will come back and edit the pictur...

Re: Friday, July 12, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

WORD ORIGINS again? This month. Booo! Not going to happen for me in 30 seconds as like anagrams I'm plain not very good at it. The closest I got was seeing "boots" in the clue and trying to think of something with "foot" for a word. Right idea though I needed to get closer to a synonym for "boots" ...

And the reason why Ryan Bilger was not put in this Tournament of Champions is probably because there already is a Ryan competing and they thought it was easier to not have a complication.
This is nonsense.

Alex at chat time to Margaret Hamilton: I will not do the obvious and dwell on your name. It's another for the J! contestant name matching a famous name list. Don't forget about John Ferraro!

pretty sure that's not Rand's picture on his contestant page . Pretty sure or totally sure? Not as sure as I was half an hour ago.

How did Walter Mayes miss the TOC & UTOC? I have input this S8 game with Walter Mayes, Joseph D'Hippolito & Rhea Levine: http://www.j-archive.com/showgame.php?game_id=5660 India Cooper's tape that I'm currently doing is January 1992, but it's the start of the month, not the end.

http://www.j-archive.com/showgame.php?game_id=6314 Another game from a Reddit user, a nice 80s game, November 4, 1988, Andrew Martin vs. Diane St. John vs. Steve Brown. The archive had the game before this one and the game after it, so it's nice to fill in a gap like that. You all know how much I lo...

Re: 2019 Current Events Study Guide

A little late, but I just found out about it:

In March of this year, composer Alan Menken personally accepted his 1992 Worst Song Razzie award for “High Times, Hard Times”, from which film?
SpoilerShow
Newsies. (The song does not appear in the Broadway musical, fyi.)

I probably don't get this one before this morning when I read a blog post about the Washington Nationals' 50th-anniversary uniforms from this past weekend.
I read a story about that yesterday, and I still missed it.

Re: Reretaken Down

https://i.imgur.com/k1IURDX.png I got some mustard on this one. I wonder if the different snacks are programmed to hit differently? Just had a 2336 ft off a red pitch but couldn't cap it in time. It seems to be based on the (debunked) idea that the faster the pitch the farther the hit, no diff betw...

The current champion is the same Miguel who was on The Chase a few years back. He had the exact same story about that Quiz Bowl girl in college. According to JayK33, he thinks it's www.j-archive.com/showplayer.php?player_id=7294 but no confirmation. This looks like confirmation enough. http://sande...

My first attempt with Microsoft Paint didn't turn out too bad actually. By pure accident I happened to pick the perfect place to control-c. That's the extent of my skills, though.

Re: New old games in the J! Archive

I’ll get another game in on Monday the 8th. If someone has a request for tournament games, this week is a good time to ask, otherwise I’ll continue with 1989 CC. Don't feel like you need to do any research to find this, but I'm hoping for the tournament ep, probably College, probably first half of ...
