Re: Thursday, July 28, 2011 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOILER

Judges on "note card" for index card? I went Note card because that was the first name for the item that came to mind. As for me, a rather average day, 24 / 30 & 22 / 30. Swept Rivers and Ceasar, that was by far the easiest one all day. Books and Movies, besides being difficult to explain, was rathe...

Re: Tuesday, July 26, 2011 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOILERS

Is the "feeding" phrase necessary for a correct response? I went with "What is fishes and loaves?"... Judges? Also, is a "TOSSED SALAD" category equivalent to POTPOURRI, etc? I had not seen that category namebefore and was trying to find a common thread for its clues but couldn't. Yeah Tossed Salad...

Re: Tuesday, July 26, 2011 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOILERS

Remind me tomorrow if Linda wins to eat my foot. I predicted Season 27 was done with the 4-time champs. Overall easy Jeopardy round, 26 / 30. Double Jeopardy = forget it, mustered 21 / 30. The writers are in a good mood recently. Also, if things go the way they do and Linda wins tomorrow, we're goin...

Re: Monday, July 25, 2011 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOILERS)

I got FJ immediately. (I don't think we have to spoiler tag - the whole thread is marked spoiler). I really don't think there was anything else it could be. Oh, there's plenty it could be (not even counting whatever out-of-left-field guess TPH had), like the Encyclopedia Britannica (my answer) for ...

Re: 2010-11 Tournament of Champions Standings (spoilers)

When it's all sorted out like that, the toughness of this field becomes more visceral; Tom Kunzen and Jay Rhee (just to pick two) in the same game? That's gonna be brutal I don't know...Jay was good, but to me it looked like his strengths played to what I would call the "regular show bread and butt...

Yep. No one can be eliminated until the champ loses.
Yeah, even though those chances are about 1 in never. :) - Of course alternate still means "You have a shot, just hope someone don't go."

Re: Wednesday, July 20, 2011 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOILE

Well, $153,800 is now good for the Top 10 all-time, demoting Brian Weikle to 10th in winnings. Even another $30,000 win will bring him to 7th, just behind Tom Walsh. Also, Anthony Fox is now officially the Tournament alternate, as this win has bumped him out of it. Congrats to Mark for that, and Ant...

Re: Tuesday, July 19, 2011 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOILERS

Mark needs to win tomorrow, honestly, no matter the numbers, that will be the determining factor. If Anthony Fox is around yet, he should be watching tomorrow. If Mark wins tomorrow, Anthony is out of the tournament. If Mark loses tomorrow, I think Anthony Will be fine until Season 28. I missed the ...

Um, wow is all I can say. $103,000 in 2 days? This man has balls of steel (sorry, can't say nerves now). He is the real deal. KenJenningsFan74: Same on wanting Anthony Fox in the ToC, but if this keeps up, its not going to happen, since he's the bubble contestant. That was a scary start too. Double ...

Re: Friday, July 15, 2011 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOILERS)

Ok, straight out: Mark is a hell of a player. $48,000 in one day (especially for your first day) is damn good. I also could be wrong, but did he get nothing wrong? Very confident player every time a DD came up. Let's hope he can keep this up for the next week. As for me, Jeopardy round was an easy b...

Monogram Madness = Missed a sweep because I missed the $1000 clue (I only remembered Mary Higgins Clark at the last second because my mom has a ton of her books.). Got 3 of 5 in SO WHAT, swept John Marshall (learning about him in college really helped me, plus some were already easy.) Lizards, I mis...

You mean "What Ever Happened to Baby Jane?"?

(And Paul didn't find any DD's. Damian got all 3.)

As to FJ ... nope, no chance.
Yeah typo on my part.

Am I the only one that noticed one of Paul's DJ responses was not in the form of question? (One of the movie ones - the 1963 one). Damian again had another strong run, but it was not to be for a 3rd win. I however had a problem in FJ getting the name of the poet. I've heard this before and had a lin...

Re: Wednesday, July 6, 2011 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOILER

In addition to FJ, I also thought the Lunchable question was very poorly worded. I figured it out since it had Oscar Mayer in the clue, but the way the clue was written made it a little more difficult than I think they intended. I got Lunchables primarily because a) I watched an episode of Family G...
