Re: LL81: LearnedLeague

Missing Sooner cost me the tie, and dropped me a couple places. My DE has been great this season, and I've broken my record for ties and consecutive ties already. I've been floating near the top of a crowded Rundle, but this match did me no favors, especially since I lost to the player now in 1st. S...

I said John Wayne. Him playing a Russian seemed unlikely, but he was in a lot of movies.
Well, if he can play a Mongolian, why not a Russian?

Re: New old games in the J! Archive

A article posted on Reddit brought up an unusual tidbit regarding Season 13/14 return player Pat Pauken. Per the Archive, "Pat appeared on Jeopardy! on 1997-01-21 and lost. Alex gave no explanation for his return to the show [in 1998]." https://www.sent-trib.com/news/answer-choir-supports-this-jeopa...

I started a thread too, but yours is better, so I deleted it.

The game is played in 3 rounds, each with a different category and a different expert....

Sam Mendes won for directing The Ferryman , becoming only the fifth director to have won both an Oscar and a Tony for directing. The others are Bob Fosse, Elia Kazan, Jerome Robbins, and Mike Nichols. Mendes won his Oscar for directing American Beauty . Looks like no one has won a Tony AND an Oscar...

There are no rules that anyone could read. Jesus Christ Wayne are you just willfully ignorant and trying to annoy everyone?

Re: Quick Rules Q

I would think it would be the same tie-breaker rule as used to determine who gets $1000 and who gets $2000 if they tie before and after the final. I don't know the exact wording of the rule, but I think it's something like whoever gave the most recent correct answer is considered to be ahead (or ma...

That is one heck of a memory you've got there. I'm quite certain though, 35 years along, they no longer do that.

Re: Quick Rules Q

I've watched the show for many years, and I have a quick rules Q, and sorry if it may sound dumb: If there is a three-way tie at the start of Double Jeopardy!, then who gets to go first? The player closest to Alex, or do they draw numbers (I know that historically, for a two-way tie at the start of...
