Cool story that Liz's mom won big on Tic Tac Dough in 1959.

The reversal clue was STATE GOVERNMENT $800: A state treasurer manages revenue & this official reviews how state money has been spent

Hannah was negged for the comptroller when Alex wanted auditor and he gave her the money back at story time.

Liz missed DD3 and it's a haunter since it cost her the match while Lane survived losing 3K on his miss on DD2.

The FJ! clue had 3/3 written all over it and the players came through. Being able to turn BESTSELLING NOVELS into a movie clue worked fine for me to be done before the music began.

So close to a 61-clue game.

FJ: :mrgreen:

I was half expecting "all other powers" to be reversed in Lane's favor.
Never been on J!, but once won a knockoff version that aired on local access TV.

The P-40? Really? I'd bet that gets missed 99 times out of 100.

I have no idea why they negged comptroller in the first place. Also thought that 10th amendment clue might have warranted a BMS, but I'm not a constitutional expert.

I can NEVER keep those P-model WW2 planes straight in my head. Tonight was no exception. Poll request? I'm curious if it's just me.

Super-instaget FJ.

How was 14 Points a stand and stare? I'm exhausted from work and suck at history, and I still got that one.

Can't say I've heard of a "pullover" or "La Boheme", thus ensuring my streak of being completely unable to run a Stupid Answers.

Saw no way to figure out any of those Olympics clues. I didn't see a single TOM for China in the top box. That entire category seemed YEKIOYD.

Also couldn't think of anything to put together to form a bowl. That whole category was miles over my head.

Ran the Music category.

Lach Trash: 14 points, train, diminished

I had no idea what to even guess on FJ! I couldn't manage to process "Amber" as anything other than a name. Alex's tipoff after the music ended finally put the pieces together.

There are a lot of us who spent many teenage hours building models of WWII planes.

30 right.

1918 (5), State Government (3), Stupid Answers (4), Nonfiction (3), Olympic (5), In "Business" (0)
Auntie (0), Music (1), Quick (3), Weird Words (1), Chinese Emperors (2), Lawyer (3)

Lach Trash: auditor, Fourteen Points

I settled on Jurassic Park near the end of the music, even though I didn't feel totally confident about it.

Not a problem for an old warbird buff like me, but I still think it's too obscure for Jeopardy, even in the $2000 row. Especially with the age generation of most J! players. P-51 is the only WWII fighter (alpha-neumeric) that is 'universally' known by appearance anymore.

Poll request; I don't think it would go over 20%.

Never read the book or saw the movie, but got FJ on a complete guess.

Didn’t know the plane. I thought of “all other powers”, but clammed because I couldn’t think of a more eloquent way to put it.

Bestselling Novels is a category that would’ve had me nervous, but this one was an instaget for me. I’ve read the book and watched the movie a few times.

I don't think it'll break 10%...but will be more than 1%. P-51's the only one I could name, too.

Instafinal.
