Re: Sporcle Quizzes Highly Beneficial For Jeopardy

I actually don't find Sporcle quizzes to be all that useful for study because I learn from the bottom up, for whatever reason. I don't make much progress memorizing facts in a vacuum when I don't have a background to contextualize them. Needless to say, I like playing geography, auto racing and Beat...

Re: Signaling Devices

Fritz Holznagel was just touting this on Facebook: http://getthebuzzer.com/products/quiz-buzzer-1 (the price should amuse anyone familiar with his Jeopardy appearances) Is this a lockout buzzer? In other words, does it lock you out for a 1/4 second if you buzz before the lights like on the regular ...

Re: Intermediate Geography Study

Several useful things: Google Maps, Google Earth, Eyewitness and NatGeo travel guides, Wikivoyage, Wikipedia, the Geography Monstrosity packets linked on pg. 1, Quinterest.org (search under geography), study place names and colonial history is especially useful (like, if the question is asking for a...

Re: LL68: For the LLamas

Is there a rundle level that corresponds with "...probably is ready to do well on Jeopardy?" or is it too different to compare? Probably already been answered, but absolutely too difficult to compare. A recent ToC finalist is a D Rundler and several perennial A Rundlers (BlishS, FoderaB, and Ismail...

Re: LL68 Referrals

I'd be interested in an LL invite. I'm a high schooler (#teentournament), but I'm the captain of our quiz bowl team and I'm always looking for ways to improve. I'd play every day and play with honor. Fellow teen and high school quizzer here. PM me with your first and last name and email and I'll re...

Re: Who thinks that Jeopardy selection model is unfair?

There are several reasons for this, I would assume. Although I've never been on (and never auditioned), the gender disparity would be very large (we see about 50/50 on J! now, but just look at LearnedLeague demographics), as well as many other demographic disparities. Also, a lot of the very best tr...

Re: "Originally from..." - how does that work?

This is actually fascinating.

Kind of on the subject: can people who hold dual citizenship (let's just say American and Chinese) try out for Jeopardy!? If so, are they allowed to be introduced as "a _______ from Guangzhou, China?" or something similar?

I feel very smug having been the first person on JBoard to recognize Matt Jackson as a potential superchamp of the future.

The guy's a beast in quiz bowl (he went to Yale).

Alex was on fire tonight. He'll certainly give Matt Jackson a run for his money if Matt does indeed make it to the finals, which I'm sure he will.

Re: Monday, November 16, 2015 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

Lach trash on Australopithecus and Oilers, the latter of which I was particularly shocked was a triple stumper. Quickly ran through cow names to settle with Guernsey cow as Guernsey is part of the Channel Islands. Not sure if that counts as "Lach trash" as well; I'm still not too familiar with J! te...
