Re: Errors and Corrections in The Cultural Literacy Trivia Guide-4th Edition

OMG! I'm working with a 1987 version! :o Off to the bookstore I go..... You might be thinking of the Dictionary of Cultural Literacy, which is a different book, although equally useful for Jeopardy purposes. Fun fact, both books listed the capital of Florida wrong in the first edition, giving diffe...

Happy Canada Day. Will Alex make a mention of it today? Canada Day will be on a Saturday in 2017 in the wake of the 150th anniversary of Canadian independence. THis morning a Dailymotion post was made stating it was "first tiebreaker in J! history". I thought it was going to be a preview of tonight'...

Re: How to Study For Jeopardy!

Ok thanks for your quick response Guess I'll either call bill Murray ( lol ) Or just watch it on the air and see how stupid I am ! Also, summer rerun season will be here soon. Do with this information what you will. Since there appears to be no Teen or College tournament, even to wrap up the season...

Re: The Future of the SHC: Announcement

I don't know that my wheelhouses are really anyone else's, but I'd nonetheless be willing to try my hand at writing a category. Anything to keep this going (and avenge last year's placement)! I don't know how well everyone here would do in English Alternative Rock Groups, though. . How many people ...

WLT Marilyn Monroe on Working Dead for $200? I had it from her death year of 1962. I said Toni Basil as time ran out, though I was pretty sure she hadn't won a Grammy. I knew she was still around, but I remembered a few seconds too late that she's a choreographer. Although she had her musical hit i...

INoptimal wagering by Matt in second 8200-12200 to Kat's 6200 for third place. He wagered it all where wagering $200 or less would have won on a TS but this FJ! was not.

Re: Thursday, June 25, 2015 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

I wonder if there was some kind of significance to the "Celebrities Making Money after Death" category coming up on this particular date. This game was underwhelming, but I thought that it was a pretty tough board. Count me as another who threw out Madonna as a desperation guess for FJ. 6/25 was th...

Re: Tuesday, June 23, 2015 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

How did neither get the FJ? The only thing was I wasn't COMPLETELY sure there were 64, but after that it was easy. EDIT: BTW, did they bet AFTER Donna's score got changed? They always correct scores and announce the correction before any wagering takes place--Daily Doubles or Final Jeopardy. They r...

Re: Question for LA-area contestants (former and pending)

I'm a local and when I went on the show (back in 2004) I was never an alternate; I got called in as an emergency replacement (or whatever it's called) where they wanted me in a week after the call. I had less time to do a bunch of studying beforehand, but the effect of any last-minute studying is m...

Re: New old games in the J! Archive

Gay seems to be the biggest woman winner in between the 1996 TOC and the International Tournament who was not already on her way to the 1998 TOC. J! wanted to present some diversity with both a woman and non-white? I suspect that may have been the case. Probably how Claudia Perry and Kate Waits got...

Family Feud #1 in syndication

It's worth noting here that Steve Harvey Family Feud has now taken the #1 spot in syndication for the first time, as per Buzzerblog. It's the first game show not named Wheel of Fortune or Jeopardy to be #1 among syndicated game shows since Dawson Feud in late 1983/early 1984. Wheel became the #1 syn...

Re: Tuesday, June 23, 2015 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

I thought the Im-Pasta category was impossible. All three at $200 sounded equally Italian to me, and thus equally likely to be or not be pasta. Repeat for the next four down. Funny the Im-Pasta category comes at a time when ABC and Fremantle, according to Buzzerblog, are going to have another go at...

Re: Consider helping a boardie live the dream!

The biggest problem David K. and Andy will have might well be that they know more about the show than the average auditioner. Maggie and Co. will probably respect that, but we'll see what happens.
