Re: 2013 Online Test Registration Is Open

I signed up and I will take it on the 10th.

From what I understand, the questions on the test are harder than on the actual show. Does anybody know why this is? You would think the opposite would be true.

Re: 2011-13 Tournament of Champions Standings (enter at your own risk)

Recently, I've seen a string of a few champions, specifically Alistair and Kris, who, I thought, had potential for the Tournament but yet both are out.

Re: Friday, December 28, 2012 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

FJ! was interrupted by Obama. Can someone catch me up? Basically, all Nichole had to do was bet $0 because it was a lock tie but she got FJ wrong and a result, there is a new champion. Never seen anything like that before and quite honestly I have no idea why she did such a thing. As a result, she ...

Re: Friday, December 28, 2012 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

Rough day. Only 13 right with just 2 right in DJ and I blanked on FJ, just throwing at Hawthorne at the last minute.

I cannot understand why Nichole didn't just bet $0. There's a 50/50 chance of getting FJ wrong so if there is a lock tie, go with the safe bet.

Re: Thursday, December 27, 2012 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

Had 18 right in the Jeopardy round, including a sweep of the high scorers category. I missed some in here and DJ I should have gotten. Only 5 right in DJ to give me 23 right today. I hope I can crack 30 one day. I was off to a good start after the first round. I knew "God is Great" is on the flag of...

Re: Friday, December 21, 2012 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

I got stumped on FJ. It took me a bit to process what the clue was. I guessed Ulan Bator and then it wasn't until the answer was revealed that I was able to understand what they were looking for.


I equaled my high score of 28 today. 15 correct in the first round with 13 in DJ.

Re: Tuesday, December 18, 2012 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

Had to take a phone call. So only 7 right in the first round but I reached 10 in DJ for the second straight day. I am kicking myself over the St. Paul's Cathedral question as I said George Wren instead of Christopher. I have read up on a few cathedrals, including St. Paul's and Notre Dame. For FJ, I...

Great job Alistair. You might be in the Tournament of Champions now.

I was not home for the first round but I got 10 right in DJ and missed FJ.

Re: Thursday, December 13, 2012 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

7 right in the first round with 10 right in DJ and an instaget FJ as I got it as Alex was still reading the clue.

What did he mean the first to win five gold medals? Mark Spitz won seven in 1972.

Re: [#6490] - Friday, November 30, 2012 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

A down game from yesterday. 8 right in the first round with 5 in DJ and no clue on FJ.

Based on the Tournament of Champions thread and what I have seen so far, I think this pushes Jason's entry into the tournament.

In that category I didn't get any of them from previous clue crew spots but instead from independent studying.

Re: 2011-13 Tournament of Champions Standings (enter at your own risk)

It is interesting to compare last year's tournament vs. this year's. Last year had Tom Nissley, Joon and Roger Craig, all of whom lasted a bit. I thought they were deeper in champions as Jay Rhee, Tom Kunzen and Mark Rumsvold were all very impressive during the year to name a few. Not to mention the...

Re: World Quizzing Championships - Results are in!

I have signed up for the 2013 World Quizzing Championship. I am trying my best to study everything I can. I wonder how well I will do. I am on funtrivia and I watch Jeopardy everyday when I am home and also watch youtube clips of other quiz shows in addition to surfing the web. I didn't join my bowl...

Re: [#6489] - Thursday, November 29, 2012 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

Had my best game yet in keeping score. 28 right today with 13 in the first round and 15 in DJ. I should have had 30. I didn't get The Price is Right or Wheel of Fortune in the game show category. I was hoping there would have been a clue on Mastermind. I love that show and wish it was in the U.S. I ...

Re: Friday, November 2, 2012 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOILERS)

12 right in the first round. I should have gotten Aldrin. Seven right in DJ to give me 19. I did not know FJ and guessed the Hawaii Warriors.

That was an amazing comeback Keith had and unfortunate to see that happen. I wonder how he will perform in the Tournament of Champions.

Re: Friday, September 21, 2012 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOILERS)

9 right in the first round, 5 right in DJ to give me 14. I missed

For FJ I went with the wrong answer. I considered Ben-Hur but I didn't know it so I went with On the Waterfront instead. When Alex said biblical epics I knew I had made a mistake.
