Pope Pius IX to be exact. The longest serving pope.
No, they are asking for the position of Pope, not a specific person. Yes Pius was the one serving until 1870 but that’s not what the clue is asking.

Re: New old games in the J! Archive

60 correct answers in this game, followed by 60 and 59 in Jerome’s first two games. Damn fine work. And the one missing was a missed daily double so it appears to be three consecutive regular games with zero triple stumpers, I wonder if this is unique in the Archive.

Re: Thursday, April 23, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Yes, I agree completely with Jeff's analysis. And what I mean by the innominate situation is the failure of third place to do that. Nope, try reading it again. I outlined a very narrow, highly unlikely scenario where 3rd could conceivably benefit by letting 2nd beat them to the buzz. You mention th...

Re: Thursday, April 23, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I'll even do your work for you and point out a far-fetched situation where 3rd does indeed need to sit back and let 2nd have money to keep alive in the game. I think the most likely way this could come into play is if a daily double remains on the board and 3rd doesn't have enough money to take adva...

Re: Thursday, April 23, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Innominate means it doesn't have a name. If it had happened to (arguendo) Arthur Chu in his last game, we might call it the Chu situation. Whatever you call it, it is a real threat to a Jeopardy contestant if a third-place contestant who has no chance of being anywhere but third at the end of doubl...

I also thought they should have prompted on "Deepest part" and at least given her a chance to come up with Challenger Deep. The fact that her response included the required quoted portion of the category name to me puts it a cut above a generic Clavinesque response, even if only slightly. I'd at lea...

Re: Final Jeopardy! Clues

The writers could have endless paths to do this to us next season.

Re: WWTBAM returns to primetime

Celeb games have different rules. Wolf Blitzer got to stick around for Final, Nikki Glazer can stick around past $32k. There is already the different rule of the $32,000 minimum, so no need to have her stick around. In the end, this is for charity, so this charity may get more than that minimum - t...

Re: WWTBAM returns to primetime

While watching ABC today I saw a promo that included Anderson Cooper as another celebrity playing. When checking on that I saw a source that had Andy Cohen as another playing. That 12 names so far for 8 episodes and seems about right. Another thing I read was that the expert can help on the first 1...

They are chocolate-covered ice cream bars.
They make chocolate candy and candy bars as well.

What was the TOM for Trojan War in Plays for $400? I was trying to find a war that occurred in the 1600s, and I don't see anything pointing to Trojan whatsoever. The clue said "ancient war". You could guess Peloponnesian, or Punic, or probably several other things, but to me Trojan is the most obvi...

Oof! Yes, these last couple of days have not been game play at its finest, but this did seem to be a nadir, redeemed mostly by Khalila as a player.
