I submitted a correction suggestion.
Accepted. Sorry about that one. I started doing the category in lowercase and did not like it. In switching the clues to uppercase I messed up.
So you're saying you didn't C the typo in the clue?

Re: Wednesday, May 5, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I don't "LV" the apparent typo in the $800 clue. Oh, wait, was that Mark's typo or the show's? Because that changes everything. I was playing off the Archive and would have easily gotten "LV LCY". https://i.ibb.co/JyxVct6/ill.jpg Should there be a note or an erratum? Or the writers are doing a grad...

Since the clue mentioned the "British spelling", I wonder if "Rumors" would have been accepted?
I was wondering the same thing about "Roomers." --Bob
Ha! What if they misspelled it the British way, Roomours?

Re: 2021 Current Events Study GUIDE. Study GUIDE.

Penguin/Random House imprint Berkley will be republishing "Rules of Engagement,” “The Art of Desire” and “Power of Persuasion", 3 long out-of-print romance novels by Georgia politician Stacey Abrams. They were originally published under the pseudonym Selena Montgomery. Look for them in 2022.

Re: Wednesday, May 5, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

VWLLSS STCMS $800 and $1000 should have been swapped. Sometimes I think the writers purposely put the hardest clues in the second-lowest box on the board just to give the players a break/add some dynamics to the game: get an $800 clue wrong, make it up with $1000 on the next clue. I only got to "Lo...

No surprise that Emily got FJ right today. Her solve of yesterday's clue shows that she has some real depth of knowledge. I also missed it, going with Kon-Tiki. Went east from the Bering Strait instead of west, and then couldn't quite shake off "island chain", metaphorical as it may have been. Shame...

I'm curious Mark. Do you think adding the year 1905 would have helped you at all? 1900 being Oz is one of the big book-year Pavlovs.

Was this the record largest combined total for three contestants heading into FJ? 53,000 is nothing to sneeze at. Emily went from $9600 to $36,600 with just two responses! This one I knew for sure without even having to get into the Holzhauer games: https://www.j-archive.com/showgame.php?game_id=92...

Today's MASTERPIECE/THEATER category was long enough that it was irregularly widening that category in the J! Archive display of this game. In the past I've said "please don't hyphenate [or in this case, add a line break]" too-long words (or strings, as may be the case) because it affects search fu...

Re: Thursday, April 29, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Speaking of the dice rolls, it blows my mind that the player(s) answered with the sums of the numbers, instead of saying what's on the 2 dice, i.e. snake eyes is double ones, boxcars double sixes, et cetera. I suppose it's the case where 2 has to be 1-1, so it's always snake eyes, 12 has to be 6-6 s...

I really don't think "gypsy" is a slur in American English. Well that’s great for you, I guess? :roll: :roll: :roll: I don't think it's one thing or the other for me. It's just my understanding. It would appear to be the understanding of TPTB at Jeopardy at this point as well since they're willing ...

Googling the name of this game's winner and the word Jeopardy brings up some fun, interesting stuff, including the number of games they ultimately win.

I'm happy he wrote a more forceful repudiation of white supremacy, but I think it's also worth pointing out that the Three Percenters claim to not be a white supremacist organization, so his statement doesn't preclude involvement with that group. You sure know a lot about the 3 Percenters. Somethin...

I also chose to note Ron's unusual phrasing "What are crepe?", having listened 3 or 4 times to make sure he didn't say "crepes", which is not a 5-letter word.
Wouldn't you know, after the next clue, they ding him for adding the "s". I didn't hear it, but the people who judge such thing did.
