Darn Stone of Scone -- blew up my shot at a first ever three-good-FJ-weeks in a row.
I'm not the defending Jeopardy! champion. But I have played one on TV.

With all of the reported misses in the game thread, Scone vs Blarney will be interesting to keep an eye on.

Oriole on Thursday. I was playing trivia on my phone at the same time, and between that and the mental effort of getting sidetracked on the Spanish dorado and making my way back to aurum -> oriole, I lost sight of the "two-word" stipulation.

I thought of "zymurgy," but didn't have the presence of mind to take the root and add the -ase suffix to make it an enzyme. Was that during Thursday's game too?

Wednesday. I was being a wise guy and picked one stumper from each of Erik's games this week.

Knew it was Trump's retreat, couldn't pull the name. "Instagot" oriole and scrubbed past the rest of the think music on the Reddit guy's upload, to make sure I wasn't late for class. Oops!

Assuming the layout's still the same it's just a matter of commenting out the old blocks and putting in the new ones.

Don't count on the names ever coming back tho. That kicked my rear too much last time.

I’ve never heard of zymase & I must admit I don’t recall the clue on the show. I did go 60/60 in J6 this week.

From what I can see, the problem isn't with the pct calculation but the vote count. The vote count now equals the total number of yes votes.
