Re: Future events for the rest of Season 36

College Championship testing did take place in early October (source: I took that test). Auditions were in November or early December I believe (did not advance that far). We will not hear a definitive reason about why this is airing in April unless one of the players says so, if they even know at ...

Re: Wednesday, February 5, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Any reason I should know William the Conqueror, especially when just spotted the years? Where are you from? Around here, that's very basic history every high-schooler is taught. Is your "around here" England? I'm not sure I ever learned much about English kings (except as connected to other aspects...

Fridge actually came to mind, but I knew that sounded silly I then came up with bridge, but you can’t be in a bridge, so I clammed. I agree the rhyme was a bit of a stretch. It's really not that far a stretch if you've heard it sung in the musical. The word orphanage is sung stretched out almost in...

Re: TD 439 - Buffalo (Questions 1-6 revealed)

Can you re-check the answers for Q5? You have"Jimmy Stassen" listed as an answer, and not Jimmy McMillan -or- Harold Stassen. You also don't have an answer recorded for me at all - I answered Harold Stassen. Thanks.

Having been to Salem in the recent past, Hot7G was an insta-get. Take the tour. Squeeze through the secret passage and stairway.

DMZ was Insta-get as well, albeit not from being there :-D. I honestly thought it was a WECIB?

Re: 2020 Jeopardy North American Audition Tour

I’m confused. It says on the website they don’t release scores. These are self-reported scores, based off answers posted here. These aren't the scores J! uses to score, but there is no big reason to exaggerate or lie here. Thank you. I’m not sure I’d remember for sure what I answered on everything....

Kansas City Chiefs def. San Francisco 49ers 31-20 to win Super Bowl LIV. It's their first championship since Super Bowl IV in 1970, and the first title for KC head coach Andy Reid. KC quarterback Patrick Mahomes was named Super Bowl MVP. And just to clarify, the Chiefs represent Kansas City, Missou...

That's how they used to do it for Brain Bus events.
And during the the pre-online test days. You'd take the test, they'd grade it, come back in the rooms and call out about 10-15 names. Everyone else was thanked and told to go home.
Yep. Been there, done that in Atlantic City.

I'm still trying to figure out how Hawaii has Interstates.
At least it's a STATE. Puerto Rico also has interstate highways and it's not even a state.

Not sure if anyone will see this since the episode has already aired a few days ago, but just wanted to respond with my own reflections! It was an incredibly bad game. We had watched all 4 games earlier that day, and I felt like our game was significantly harder. The first round was just complete g...

After my personal best 45 on Tuesday, tanked with a 31 on Wednesday...got my usual squeaked by passing score of 35 today. All for fun as I'm swimming, and hopefully will soon be told to grab a towel and put on a suit! Do they tell you if you pass the in-person test and are thus "in the pool"? With ...

Re: Quick Rules Q

Good Lord, I feel like I accidentally stumbled onto Facebook with all the snarky bickering.

We all know that a two way tie going into DJ is always the leftmost player (from the viewer's standpoint). Why would a three-way tie be any different?

Well that's why I specifically said a scenario where I can ONLY win with a correct answer coupled by a leader's miss. Basically, the scenario between a lock-row and the 2/3 breakpoint. Case in point: leader has $20k, I have $13k, third place has $5k. Assuming the leader wagers the standard $6001, I ...
