Re: Wednesday, April 20, 2016 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

My Coryat tonight was 14600. Not a good night. Loved the Alabama History category, though.

Andrew is almost certainly a lock for the next ToC, no matter when it may be.

Re: 2016 Current Events Study Guide

This is his second term. Now that I think about it, I didn't vote for him in 2010. I wrote in some novelty joke candidate's name since I wasn't overly impressed with him or whoever he was running against. But I think I did vote for him in the primary and runoff, not really sure. Just curious -- con...

Re: Superchamps in ToC stats (2015 Spoilers)

While this is an interesting list, I think the amount of money and the consistency in regular game play are also factors in determining ToC odds as well as the amount of games won. If every game won by a ToCer was REALLY narrow win and/or loss, then the odds are lower of winning unless you can someh...

Re: Adult online tests coming in Jan 2016

As Gilmore said; "Just do it!" Which Gilmore, Jim? Anyways, my question is, will Kids Week applicants still have to sign up for one if they're under 13, what with COPPA and all? Thankfully, my 13th birthday was in January of this year, so I'm on the safe side of things, but what about the less fort...

Re: "Originally from..." - how does that work?

When you're going over your information and your stories in the green room, they'll go over the pronunciation of your name and where you're from. That's the point where I said, "Actually, can I be 'originally from Ann Arbor' rather 'from than Iowa City'?" They had no problem with it. "from than" is...

Re: Friday, November 20, 2015 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

(I guess I'm the only one who gets Jeopardy! at 4pm, so I'll just keep talking to myself.) This also means that of the top five players ever, by regular-game win streak, none has won a tournament of champions. I would move to Minnesota just for that. I can see why you left the Bay Area, it's not th...

As a Coldplay fan, good song choice with the video.

I'd guess tiebreaker

Re: Wednesday, November 11, 2015 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

Four presidents ago I would call recent, especially for those of adult J! age. People of your age would consider "recent" differently. ;) Perhaps. Especially when you look at the fact that only about 200 out of something like 1400 (for a middle school! outrageous, right?) know who the current presi...

Re: Wednesday, November 11, 2015 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

That $600 clue in VETERANS was way overvalued. Not only does it ask us to name the president in 1982, but it *pictures* him? A popular recent president? The $1000 clue was "Got your 6", obvious on retrospect of course given the charitable organization, but would "Got your 6 o'clock" work? I didn't ...

Re: Things you miss about Jeopardy!

I'm actually mostly comfortable with J! as it's been in the past few years. I watch 80s or 90s episodes online, and I'm often struck with how cold and stern AT feels at times. I think Johnny's "This! Is! Sparta! Jeopardy!" generally has more emphasis now than it did in the old days. The boop-boop-b...

It's not kid-friendly if it contains nudity, does it?

Re: Things you miss about Jeopardy!

Shows taped on the road, especially for tournaments. Having participated in the first game Jeopardy! ever taped "on the road" ( Battle of the Bay Area Brains , taped at UC Berkeley's Zellerbach Auditorium prior to the 1998 College Tournament), I kind of miss these too. Were those ever aired? Don't ...
