When was DD3 played? 29th to complete the pattern of late discovery this week.

THRILLERS & MYSTERIES 200: In “The Woman in Cabin 10”, a travel writer on assignment on one of these hears a possible murder

If Tal had been in first with his negged then reversed response then Melissa would have got her money back. Since she was the first to ring in with the incorrect response the subtraction stands.

Such a Mark thing to do. My response for the FJ! clue was Flavian. :oops:

When my husband immediately responded to FJ with Augustus, I was, like, "Aw, c'mon, honey. They're not asking who deserved a colossal statue. They're asking who's the egomaniac who would've had one erected to himself at that time." Go Chicago!

Rome burned in 64 AD so I knew Nero was around that time period.
Never been on J!, but once won a knockoff version that aired on local access TV.

That was my in, too.

I also think I remember a story about the cause of the fire being so that Nero could clear out some space to build a giant house near his giant statue.

Coryat: $28,000
39 R/5 W
DD: 2/3
FJ: :mrgreen:
LT: (none)

Tal looked very impressive. Is his the best Coryat this season by a non-winner? (I'd look it up myself, but I don't want to risk spoiling myself on the three-and-a-half weeks of shows I still haven't gotten to.)

Nero was a quasi-WAG for me, but points is points.

Knee-jerked "FLavian Ampitxxxxx..." O wait read it again.... DOH it wants the DUDE, Homer! :lol: Um, Nero suicide > 68 AD, Colossal EGO, ergo Nero-dude. 8-) 40R. LT: Thomas Aquinas, Elba > Italy get on MDD.

TBVH Boardies, after close following this game for going on nine years, I can see a shift in the clue culture and feel myself slipping out of touch.
The show shifts emphasis to culture and lifestyle of the 21st century and I'm just a worn-out relic. Thanks for the good times, it's been real! :(

The only boardie who regularly posts with emojis, "lol" and other text-speak feels that 21st century pop culture is making him feel old? If *you're* old, I'm downright ancient!

Rome’s Colosseum may have gotten its name because of a colossal circa 65 A.D. statue of this emperor erected nearby

What?????

When Alex said "it helps to know your Roman Emperors", I was hosed. The clunky syntax of the clue made me consider the Colussus at Rhodes as an option, not really knowing the end of the timeline for the 7 Ancient Wonders. No excuse, I know Rhodes is a place name, but the idea of naming a giant amphitheater the "bigly theater" just because there was a bigly statue didn't seem sensible. Why not the "pigeon poop" theater?

If I'd parsed the sentence and taken the 65% confidence interpretation, at least I'd have taken a shot at a Roman Emperor in the year "about" 65 AD. I might have whiffed on Nero since he hasn't been in my space lately, but at least I could have been a contenda'.

I give this clue only 1 star for the clunky syntax, same as yesterdays
SpoilerShow
ambiguous "prized" building material (1 item or 2?) clue.
. Both clues are FJ worthy, but need better presentation.

I'm glad Melissa was able to represent thanks to a couple of good gets on high value clues.

I had locked in Tal as the new champ but Lisa wouldn't go away! He couldn't stop her freight train even if he'd gone big on the DD's, she is in it to win it! If she can be more dominant with the buzzer she may go deep. Who knows, maybe I'll see her at the 12/12 taping (from the audience). Looking forward to coming back to several missed episodes and TPH on WOF as long as the DVD holds up!

Re "Thrillers & Mysteries ($200.00): The Woman in Cabin 10", the correct response should have been: What is a yacht?

Neither ocean liner nor cruise ship should have been acceptable responses.

I would have wagered differently than Tal at that last daily double. The scores were 22,000/15,200/3,800 or something close to it and he opted to wager 2,000 only. I'd recommend wagering about 9,000 or 10,000. He bet 2,000 to maintain his lead no matter what but that doesn't maximize his chance to win. If he bets 10,000 and gets the clue right then he wins no matter what. If he bets 10,000 and gets the clue wrong then he is in a close second place and should win if Lisa misses FJ.

With a bet of 2,000 he has a crush game if he gets it right and he only loses if FJ is a miss by Tal and a hit by Lisa, if he gets the DD wrong then he is in a 2/3 scenario and he should win if he gets it right and should lose otherwise.

If all the contestants have the success rates of average Jeopardy! contestants then they get daily doubles right 60% of the time and FJ right 50% of the time. If Tal bets 10,000 his odds of winning the game is 80%. If he bets only 2,000 his odds of winning the game is only 65%. (0.6*1.0+0.4*0.5 = 0.8, 0.6*0.75+0.4*0.5 = 0.65)

I missed FJ by guessing Augustus. Nowadays they mostly build statues of people after they die and so I was thinking of Roman emperors that had died in the first century. I "knew" Nero was emperor at that time but didn't pick him. I thought Nero was the third emperor but after looking it up he was the fifth after Augustus, Tiberius, Caligula, and Claudius.

I think I went 30/30 on scored J6 clues this week. Multiple choice and lucky guesses helps.

Tal was very impressive. It looked to me as if he had superior buzzer soeed as well as a good knowledge base. Lisa found her stride late in DJ, though, and then benefitted from the sole FJ solve. I managed to pull FJ out by focusing on the egotism involved which led inexorably to Nero. I was still pleasantly surprised at the reveal, however. Fun game to watch. Lisa is a good champ.
