Re: This just in! New season of Millionaire (2018) seeks contestants

They are taping a 2nd chance week on 8/21...but didn't ask me :( That's definitely a sore spot for me. After the first season of prime time shows they held a ToC, immediately after my second season appearance was told by the producer I would be called for the 2nd season ToC. To my knowledge they ne...

Re: New old games in the J! Archive

For MOVIES $300 I did not add any kind of note. Is that quote correct? Does Scheider say it several times? The same way each time or different ways? I took a quick look on YT and found the line said differently. If a fan of the movie has a strong need for some kind of ERRATUM then let me know and I...

Re: LearnedLeague 78 - Official Thread

Hoping I didn't renew my registration too late....got it in this morning, but it says my status is "provisional (rookie)." Anybody else ever have their stuff expire the day before registration is due? Were you able to get in that season, or no? It took 24 hours for my renewal to process, so I'd say...

Charlotte Rae, who played Mrs. Garrett on Diff'rent Strokes and The Facts of Life has passed away at age 92. In related news, this might be the saddest Tweet I've ever seen.

Retsina . Darn my lack of knowledge when it comes to potent potables! Maybe this SHC will finally drive me to drink. http://j-archive.com/showgame.php?game_id=5875 I entered this game into the J-Archive in January, and I'm pretty sure Retsina ended up on a flashcard, which I probably never looked a...

Re: Tuesday, July 24, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

One time they asked for the person for whom the capital of Nevada was named. In the $200 box. Just "Carson" got a BMS. The contestant fell silent and the other two failed to ring in. One of the most ridiculous BMSes up there IMO. Totally disagree. When they ask who Carson City was named after, it's...

Second place was the spot to be in the game with the TS FJ! clue. I missed as well while getting closer than the players with a 50/50/90. In my mind it was clearly one or the other and I did not know which way to go. Ugh! I’m sure there is some kind of simple distinguisher that I’ll learn about tod...

Re: Thursday, July 26, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I would describe Dave and Rick as "known quantities" in trivia/quiz bowl circles, and I'd bet the Green Room wasn't the first time they'd met. I wonder if Rick was held aside until Dave lost/the end of the week?

One of these days I'm going to get dinged for Koningsberg, then I will finally remember how to spell it.
(I know I did the same for https://learnedleague.com/question.php?74&17&3 and it worked then too...)
You got credit for that spelling? That's a bridge too far! ;)
