My post this morning was deleted, so not sure if I broke a rule or what.
The show hadn't aired yet.
What do you consider the "air time"?

Re: Tuesday, April 16, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

My post this morning was deleted, so not sure if I broke a rule or what. Seemed pretty innocuous. ------ And just like that, James knocks down Roger's one-day record down another notch. Second highest single-day winnings: $106,181 Second highest Jeopardy round score: $19,400 Until the other contesta...

This game is legit. The buzzer feature is awesome. It installed on my Windows 10 OS just fine.

Re: Monday, April 15, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

The FJ! clue had me spend longer on working out my wording than the solve itself. After determining there was no good reason to use Mt. Suribachi in my response I went five words with FROIJ while Kevin had six with RTFAIJ and James was the most efficient with IJFR. I went through a similar mental e...

James likely would have had the second highest total after the Jeopardy Round had he not gone for the Dakar Rally (which started in 1977) instead of the Tour de France with probably $19,600 (had he gotten the DD and earned the additional $2,800 he actually ended the round with).

Re: Jeopardy! article from Games Magazine (1987)

For the fun of it I looked to see if I could find the page in Fred Worth's Super Trivia regarding Howdy Doody's freckles the article talks about.

The writers misspelled "minuscule" in the "Moolah" category. I have a feeling that "miniscule" is eventually going to be considered an alternate spelling because it appears so frequently. I don't think that's happened yet, though.

Amazing player, the best I've ever seen. Just a casual $89k. It seemed almost pedestrian.
Really? The best? I haven't analyzed the Coryats or anything, but just from watching my impression is his depth of knowledge isn't on the same tier as Ken's and Brad's.

Re: Jeopardy! article from Games Magazine (1987)

He selects a good mix of questions and answers in 12 individual categories, which are studied by Alex, discussed by three of four writers, and proofread before being programmed into Chyron, the computer system used to display the material on the board. Interesting piece of Jeopardy! trivia I have n...

Re: RIP Charles Van Doren

I wonder if we would have Jeopardy if not for the 21 scandal? 100% would not. For one, the scandals had a butterfly effect on game shows in the future, so it would be impossible to know how the history of game shows and quiz shows more specifically would have proceeded without them, especially in f...

one more thing: hate the happy birthday shtick (yeah, hate). when's scarlet's birthday? today? tape day? who cares?! :P I believe he attempts to wager an amount that can be interpreted as the date of the birthday. He messed up Scarlett's birthday today and tried it again in tomorrow's episode.

I believe I got 45. I need to check the questions and answers once a kind soul posts them.

Edit: Make that 43.

I went with Wilde.
That was my reflex when he was first reading the clue. But when I think of Wilde, I think of the famous photos of him. So I know he was around much later in the century.

Re: Friday, May 30, 2014 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

Only three pages of discussion? That does it. We need a new champ. :lol: EDIT: So, of course, my one-liner tipped us over to page four. It's actually a spoiler to come to the boards any time after like 12:00pm PST, because if the recap thread only has one page for a while you know she didn't lose.

Re: World Quizzing Championships - Results are in!

If you're wondering what the questions are like, I have the question sets from 2007-2009. I can easily scan them to PDF for whomever wants them.

Edit: Spelling.
