Re: 500 Questions (Season 2) [Possible Spoilers]

You are kind of arguing my point. If he said he tanked it on purpose, then his reputation for being a trivia genius would be hurt *less*, not more, for missing such an easy question. With all due respect, this statement couldn't be more wrong. If Ken, or any trivia competitor, was found to have tak...

Re: Millionaire Season 16 Discussion [SPOILERS]

I thought those were easy questions. But I did watch today's episode where the contestant lost on a question about which had the least calcium of a) tofu b) oatmeal c) carrots d) sardines. I had no idea & neither did the contestant. Ugh. Just watched this for no good reason The umpteenth contestant...

Ouch. Out of lifelines on question two. That might be a record even if you count the Shuffle format.

Shoot, you could basically eliminate half of the NFL through the clue.

Re: Millionaire Season 16 Discussion [SPOILERS]

Probably chalk it up to nerves, but that one should have been easier for her. The feet and the hands are the only ones that could feasibly be near the bottom of the painting, and since the damage was done in the 1600s, any version of Last Supper we've seen must be post-damage. The hands are still th...

So am I right that tonight's $19,000 is the largest unadjusted Daily Double wager in the shows history, second only to Bob Beers's $10,000 pre-doubled DD?

I said SDJ first, but then tried to think of another musician who died in 2015. B.B. King came to mind, even though he wasn't part of the Rat Pack. I'm surprised SDJ didn't get a street until 2015.

I made the Charles Ludwidge Dodgson connection, but got Lewis Carroll confused with C.S. Lewis. Shame on me.

This has been one of the more entertaining College Tournaments from start to finish. Sorry to see it end, but happy with the result for all involved.

I hope some of the players come over to the board to share their experiences.

Re: Friday, February 5, 2016 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

If I were to venture a guess, and that's all it is is a guess, I'd say that "number of clues correct" would be in the list of tiebreakers somewhere. Not necessarily disagreeing with you here, but why penalize the contestant who got the more difficult questions correct? Brian I guess I would propose...

Re: Friday, February 5, 2016 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

So for those of us like me who missed the show...what exactly ARE the tiebreakers in a situation like this? 1st -- score at the end of the DJ round 2nd -- score at the end of the J round I think if anything more is needed, they just go back clue-by-clue. I think the 3rd tiebreaker is the score at t...

I can probably look this up, but holy crap, Alex's Daily Double wager! Was it the largest ever? I'm not sure if you can search J-Archive for largest DD wagers, but I know both Joon Pahk and Roger Craig have wagered (and won) big before. Roger hit back to back DDs in his first game of the ToC, makin...

Re: Wednesday, November 18, 2015 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

Unfortunately I had the result of today's game spoiled for me when I went to the Jeopardy website. I clicked on Thursday's line-up, expecting to see Alex, Kerry, and a blank spot. Instead I saw Alex, Kerry, and Matt. Very surprised that they made such a glaring misstep.

Re: Monday, November 2, 2015 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

All I could think after that was cue the explosion on the Jboard. I am in no way a wagering expert, but it seems to me like you ought to at least try to win the game. Is there any logical reason for her to wager so little, other than very little confidence in her own ability? Perhaps it is all a pa...
