I'm new to this site and am unsure how to post a new topic, but I wanted to ask a question: I played in Season 6, Game # 1310. Why is this game not archived?

It's not possible to post new topics until you have a few posts under you belt.

The answer to your question is simple, though: we don't have a copy of the show from which to archive it.

I have a copy on VHS tape. I can convert it to a DVD if you wish for me to send it to you.

I wouldn't be the one to send it to, but there are others here who would be in a better position to assist you. bpmod or Robert K S, for example.

Did you guys notice that every clue in Potpourri was a triple-stumper? Anyone know if this has happened before?

I know I was a big 0-fer the category, so I can't say I blame them.

Maybe that time they had the Barry Maniloe category?

Today's first round was actually part of a new program developed by Arne Duncan - "Race to the Bottom."

Especially astute wager by Leslie there, I think it wins if both opponents die before the championship matches are played.

I must've had my head up my ass because I stood there staring at the screen right along with them.

I'd feel better about getting FJ (and yesterday's, for that matter) if they weren't so easy.

It didn't matter in the end, but I don't know why Brooks didn't go TDD there. 5000 was a bold charge into the lead, but I half-expected Leslie to overtake him on the next clue, or for him to end up trailing by less than 2k going into FJ.

Speaking of Leslie...y'know what? Nevermind. Not worth it.

Instaget Final time. Brooks got on a rout right at the right time, but that was an ugly J Round by far.

Brooks vs. Justin vs. ______

This should be an interesting Finals, of course I am expecting that Justin will run away with the Finals, but we'll find out.

I won't bother asking what was in the studio during FJ wager considering that caused the unusual wager in FJ by Leslie.

Ghastly J, better FJ, nice job Brooks.

What happens if the game ended in a tie? 4-person finals?

Anybody else notice Leslie said "Cat in the Hats" in the rhyming movies category? I rewound it and it sure sounded like that to me. Nothing to add on her FJ wager.

Nice win, but it helps when you get a DD that easy.

This should be another high get rate FJ in the poll.

There's a one question play-off. First person to get the clue correct advances.

Tie-breaker Round

...but the senator, while insisting he was not intoxicated, could not explain his nudity.

If I had 50 cents for every math question I got right, I'd have $6.30 by now.

They do a tiebreaker question, first person to ring in with a correct response wins. No winning by default, and usually the ones they don't get are edited out anyway.

i.e. Celeste DiNucci / Christian Haines in the TOC semifinal.

ETA: Damn it, of course Bpmod (and econgator) would beat me. (Close times too.)

Yeah, and I woulda beat Chuck too if I hadn't spent the time getting the url exactly right.

The only time I recall was with Oscar Hosts in the UTOC, so at least there was an excuse for this. Since I (and it appears I'm not alone) went 0fer with them, whoever wrote up that category should be fired.
