Re: Tuesday, March 17, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

This game was the most entertaining of all the seven games I saw in person on Jan. 14-15. Quite a dramatic comeback for Kris.

Re: Jeopardy 2019 North American Audition Tour

Episodes have aired, so I think it's safe to post that Zahkia from March 5 and Lynn from 3/6 both auditioned at Trivia Nationals.

I'm the resident Bible expert among my trivia friends and I missed the DD. I was trying to think of something more metaphorical.

Re: Online Test Recap & Discussion (Eastern), January 28, 2020

I took the test off YouTube for fun since I'm still in the pool. I got 44, which I'm pretty sure is better than either time I actually took it and got auditions. I missed the Muslim pilgrimage, the French President, the Jaffa fruit, the vodka thing, the constellation, and the baseball team. Figured ...

Re: What Would You Ask Alex?

Update: I got to ask Alex which of his home improvement projects he was the most proud of, which got him started reminiscing about building a ski chalet in Quebec in 1972. It was a lovely story.

Re: What Would You Ask Alex?

Since we saw him standing inside the floor in his house... Is there any home improvement project you decided was beyond your abilities and paid someone to do because you felt you couldn't? Yes that's a good one! I was trying to think of something home improvement related. That was one thing I actua...

Re: Thursday, December 12, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

If Jennifer wins today, I expect her to be rather well-dressed next week. Maybe that's just projection on my part, but I know if I had just won close to $200K and was going to be coming back to tape again, I would be walking into a high-end department store that has stylists on staff and handing the...

Re: Friday, December 6, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

'Retired Sports Team Numbers' was a category I could sink my teeth into. Naturally, the players avoided it until almost no other clues were left. Easy run of the category. I ran that category, and sports generally is a nightmare category for me. Those were either easy clues or I'm improving a lot.

Re: LL83: Learned League

I was a little surprised he didn't ask for both Frost and Nixon If you know one, you know the other. For most, probably. But I could see a player, especially a younger one, taking a stab at Nixon, given the date, but either not remembering Frost or never knowing about him. I don't know if being a t...

Re: It's happening!!! The GOAT Tourney, w/ Brad + Ken + James

Well this will be fun! Who do I want to win? Ken Who do I think will win? James Same here but I'd add a final line: Who do I know will somehow win despite or even because of poor wagers combined with bizarre luck and a few inexplicable decisions by James and Ken? Brad I'm not sure I can watch this....
