Another game from a Reddit user, a nice 80s game, November 4, 1988, Andrew Martin vs. Diane St. John vs. Steve Brown. The archive had the game before this one and the game after it, so it's nice to fill in a gap like that. You all know how much I love the early 90s games as being packed with useful general knowledge clues. Well, these late 80s games are good in their own way, packed with idiosyncratic stuff. So much to talk about.
I have a note here that says "Virginia for 4, pronoun trouble" which took me a while to figure out, since I've been chipping away at this game for a couple of weeks. Usually "pronoun trouble" is my notation for a clue that is about a woman, but has to be phrased without saying "she", since that would give it away. Not the case here, though.
When it became Virginia's capital, Middle Plantation was renamed Williamsburg in this king's honor
I think what I meant was, Andrew heard "IT became Virginia's capital" and then stopped listening, responding "Richmond" when the clue wanted "Williamsburg in THIS king's honor".
The Audio Daily Double" in THE BEATLES category is the perfect example of what us crabby-appletons are talking about when we say that music rights tie up the distribution of reruns. It isn't worth what it would cost to license "Give Peace a Chance" for Jeopardy to make these old games available. A shame to be sure, but it is what it is.
The COUPLES IN THE NEWS category is the kind of thing you probably don't need to put in your flashcards, but if you want to remember "the Vice King and the Ice Queen" or "Gitte and Gastineau", good for you.
Every part of GEOGRAPHY for $200 (DJ!) is a Thing Worth Knowing, as is the Daily Double in the bottom row.
My challenge to Mark Barrett: Correctly guess the top row response in JOANNES, JOANNAS, ETC. without looking at the clue.
Speaking of that category, we welcome "Lt. Dish from the movie M*A*S*H" and "actress from Red River & All the King's Men" to the J-Canon as responses.
Joann Pfflug and Joanne Dru, respectively. Alex mentioned that Dru was Peter Marshall's sister.
Clue of the game will be BEST SELLERS for $600. Steve misunderstood the clue and gave the names of both
the earlier books in the trilogy. Can you do the same? (I didn't know book 2. Props to you if you got it.)
"Heaven & Hell" is the final book of this John Jakes Civil War trilogy
What are North & South and Love & War?
LETTER PERFECT in Final Jeopardy! turns out to be one of those nightmare clues that are easy enough at home, but a triple stumper for the players for the 30 seconds they have to think. I got it after considering both responses given by the players. It was a pain to transcribe all that talk, though.
I think my next step is going to be a spreadsheet catalog of all the games I have video of that need entering. I'm balancing 4 or 5 sources at the moment, so I'd like to straighten them out. That'll take some brainpower for a while. Have a great rest of your week.
