Dreams About Jeopardy!

Post by gameshowfandanny » Thu Feb 13, 2020 6:42 pm

I saw a thread that jeopardyfan939 posted about him dreaming that he saw the Tournament of Champions, so I might as well make a thread for all dreams about Jeopardy! My dream happened the night before Jason Zuffranieri's 12th game and he lost during his 32nd game on October 14. He would've tied James with second-longest streak. Jason ended up losing in his 20th game, which was two and a half weeks earlier than the date in my dream. In my dream, the reason he lost was because he found a Daily Double, bet all of his money, got it wrong, and then the end of round beeps sounded, so he became the first 10+ time Jeopardy! champion to not make it to Final Jeopardy!

I had a dream that Josh Hill lost the day before he actually did.

Several times I have a dream that I'm playing along from home and just doing absolutely horrible. Like negative four figure Coryat horrible. Just getting more frustrated at myself and digging myself deeper. Fears over how I'm afraid I'll do on the show if I get picked? A channel of my natural tendency to argue and/or panic whenever someone tries to educate me?

That's the thread I was talking about. The reason I started my own was because the other one hasn't been replied to in nearly five months.

If you had posted there, that would have changed.

I see. I didn't know if it would be right to bump a thread. That thread was about jeopardyfan939's dream about the ToC, but this thread is about any dreams.

Incorrect. He would have been one game shy of tying with James. James lost on his 33rd game.

No I meant had he won, he would’ve tied with James. I did say “tied”.

Over the years I have had several dreams about being on J!. Don't recall details of any now, but even at the time it seemed odd that that would invade my unconscious mind as much as it invades my conscious mind.

Last year I also had a dream I was a four-time champion, and it happened a few days before James Holzhauer's first game. On my third episode, I broke Roger Craig's single-day winnings record with $93,000 as I wagered big on FJ! and responded correctly. But on my fifth game, I finished in second place, even though I got the correct response in FJ! A week after my dream, James broke the one-day record with $110,914.

I remember you posting that on Buy a Vowel and the thread you created here about you seeing the ToC.

My Jeopardy! dreams usually look like this:

I never noticed this before, but there's no exclamation point in the name of the show in this video.

I had a J! nightmare last night. Well, it started as a dream - I was leading going in to FJ!, but just barely ahead of second place, so I had to risk a lot to cover by $1. I couldn't tell you what the clue was, but it had to do with size tags on the back of shirts - S, M, L, XL, etc. I wrote down "What is 'M'?", but the clue actually began "This -five letter- *blah blah blah blah*". The correct response was actually "What is medium?" - apparently my subconscious can't count letters. I was ruled wrong, of course, as Alex kindly explained that my response did not have the requisite five letters.

This would actually be my nightmare J! scenario. I'd be 100% fine with losing fair and square. Blanking on "This is the country east of Algeria" is absolutely cool by me - I don't know it, and I'll own it as I stand-and-stare, even if it is something that I should know. But knowing all of the material leading up to the correct response, but coming up with an incorrect response on a (justified) technicality? Like the famous "The Invisible Man" for "Invisible Man" when spotted "Harlem Renaissance"? Nope - that would haunt me to my grave.

I know where this came from, too - I was annoyed at missing last night's (2/20) FJ!. I misread/misheard the part of the clue confusing a program that may be defunct with a program that would be current, and ignored another part of the clue that was the key to the correct response - a key I 100% knew because I just learned it within the past month or two.

My Jeopardy dreams usually involve clues that read like the "procedurally generated" clues at http://twitter.com/EndlessJeopardy. Usually I am utterly confused at first, then come upon some ridiculous leap of insight for a response, then try to reread the clue to see if it works, only to be unable to find the part that led me to that insight (text is unstable in dreams). The last Jeopardy dream I remember, this was a clue (perhaps for FJ) in its entirety: "His is Butts"
