Re: FJs for the 2/12/18 week

Macarena is only 88% right now? I don't remember anyone else in the thread saying they missed it...

Re: Friday, February 16, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

If you don't know what a perambulator is then this is literally impossible. I mean, you have "Fake place" and "England" so even if you don't have any other pieces of information you could narrow things down to some famous fictional lands created by Brits like: Wonderland, Neverland, Middle Earth, N...

If you don't know what a perambulator is then this is literally impossible. not really...from the clue it is obviously some british bullshit...think of british literature with fictional places and neverland would be one of the top 5 that come to mind [citation needed] Even if I did know what one wa...

Re: Friday, February 16, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

Ran the Letter category. Eponymous Brands, however, I got only Walgreen. Overthought the vacuum guy at $200 and guessed Oreck. Strangely, had no idea on $200 in Animals, and negged with Antarctica for Canada at $400, but had the next three with ease. WHY DO I ALWAYS PICK THE WRONG DAKOTA FOR EVERYTH...

Re: Thursday, February 15, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

Nothing at all was recognizable in that Phantom of the Opera category.

Why did the Janet Reno clue mention dancing?

Given the category, I knew I had no chance. I had no idea what to even put down, since the category was entirely unfamiliar to me.

Re: Wednesday, February 14, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

I had to laugh at the champ's answer of Menomonie Wisconsin because it's a small college town that they will never ever ask about on Jeopardy. Plus it's nowhere near the 414 area code. As it's been pointed out, there is a Menomonee (Falls) - which is near Milwaukee. Who knew why Meonomonee (or Meno...

Re: Wednesday, February 14, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

I have a funny Macarena story, actually. When I was in 5th grade, we had a DJ come to school and play some songs for us. He then said "This one's for you, Bobby" and played the only country song he had in his catalog: a country version of the Macarena, by the GrooveGrass Boyz. Yes, this was a thing .

Re: Wednesday, February 14, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

So this is how I managed to not get FJ!: I know when I was looking up what song was #1 on my birthday, a coworker asked me what song was #1 on hers, and it happened to be "Maria Maria" by Santana and some other group no one's heard of. In checking the list of #1 songs, I was surprised that Santana r...

Re: Wednesday, February 14, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

"Edison's light company"? Could've taken 10 guesses and not gotten GE. Blanking on Matchbox cost me the run in the Toys category. I couldn't decode the 414 = April 14 because I got stuck on thinking of a Wisconsin town beginning with E, not ending. That constantly trips me up on "letters in quotes" ...

Re: Tuesday, February 13, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

Perhaps it’s just me but I didn’t really see the Jay Leno category as being about cars. I use the j-scorer site to track my Coryat and part of the site lets you enter the topic of the category so you can track your performance in various topics like in LL. I didn’t code that as “cars” though as I f...

Then again, I live in a state where Costco is all but nonexistant... No you don't. I can shop at any of three within a 45 minute drive, and I don't think you live that far away from me. The nearest Costco to me is, according to Google Maps, in Auburn Hills. To get there, I have to drive past at lea...

Re: Tuesday, February 13, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

Nasdaq for $1,200 felt like another coinflip on Sam's Club vs. Costco, with absolutely nothing to narrow it If you did the TD just ended or even read its reveal you know that Walmart has the ticket symbol WMT which means it's listed on the New York Stock Exchange. All NASDAQ ticker symbols have fou...

Re: New old games in the J! Archive

Is there really a DVD Called Jeopardy the complete 1st season? Years ago GSN showed S1. If someone has those games recorded they are not in the right hands to be in the Archive. No, there is not a DVD with the complete 1st season. It would take multiple discs for all of those games. Requests like y...

Re: Tuesday, February 13, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

Too bad we didn't have a Natalie to go with Marty/Martie and Emily to set up a bunch of Dixie Chicks jokes. Those Jay Leno clues were painful and way too freaking long. Neither name in Imaginary Jobs for $200 rang any bells to me. Ran the Wood and Word Puzzle categories. Nasdaq for $1,200 felt like ...

DUMB CRIMINALS $800: When you “start with” robbing this home improvement store & end by trying to hide in a nudist resort, yep, you will get caught I clammed instead of guessing Home Depot because "home" was in the clue. That's caused me to clam way too many times to count. Also, I should've known ...

Re: Monday, February 12, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

Dumb Criminals for $800 was massive negbait for Home Depot. I'm not ready to call it negbait quite yet. Was there something else in the clue that would lead one to Lowes over Home Depot? Something pulled me in that direction but not strong enough to not go with HD. DUMB CRIMINALS $800: When you “st...

Didn't recognize any of those exercise abbreviations. That seemed incredibly niche. Unless maybe you live in a Planet Fitness. Dumb Criminals for $800 was massive negbait for Home Depot.
