And knocked out the final game on kingskip's DVDs, 1995-B Seniors Tournament semifinal game 2, Darryl Adams vs. Nola Wegman vs. David Cuneo. http://www.j-archive.com/showgame.php?game_id=5435
. December 26, 1995.
I always enjoy when consecutively entered games in the archive contain duplicate clues or categories, even though they were played months or years apart. Both this game and the one I posted about a few hours ago had FIRST LADIES as categories in the DJ round. One name was duplicated between the 2 games, and in both cases it was match the year to the President to his wife: 1809 inauguration in the first case, War of 1812 in the second.
Also duplicated between the two games, sort of, I'll just leave this here:
ZOOLOGY for $400 (J!): This single-humped camel is also known as the Arabian camel
There's a commercial during this game for the now discontinued OTC painkiller Orudis KT. I was working retail when they stopped selling it. I'm still not sure why it was discontinued. I'm the only person who cares. (A bit of googling indicates that ketoprofen went back to prescription only, maybe. Good a guess as any. I imagine it irritates the stomach pretty badly, as NSAIDs are wont to do.)
Game show clue alert:
ODDS & ENDS for $1000: This almanac was first published in 1947 as an extension of a radio quiz show
What is the The Information Please Almanac
New to the archive is the novel "The Hand of Ethelberta", although the author is gettable thanks to another, less "Obscure" title in the clue.
What did Thomas Hardy write?
Since we were talking about foreign airlines a few pages back, let's have this one as clue of the game:
ODDS & ENDS for $600: 1 of only 2 airlines that offer flights aboard the Concorde
What is Air France or British Airways?
Clue is now out of date, of course.
An unfortunately timed incorrect guess by Nola at the end of DJ! put her $100 back going into FJ! Had she not, Jeopardy history would be quite different since the triple-get on an easy clue sent David to the Finals, the win, and the ToC the next year. For want of some "Oates", the battle was lost.
Thanks again so much to kingskip for providing these games for us. Quite a valuable resource. Now to back through this thread and pick up some more of those DailyMotion games.
