A missed DD, a TS clue, a few incorrect responses and a missed FJ! response. Not too far from a perfect game as the 50,400 Combined Coryat indicates.

Amy's "just" 2000 on DD3 with 2nd at 11000 set up the non-runaway.

The FJ! clue was not for me. From pyramids to Cleopatra's Needle I was close to going with a blank page until I wrote Leaning Tower of Pisa to have something. The logic to get to the right place was not going to happen for me even though it's a simple enough path.

7 figures for Amy tomorrow? It's not an Eve this Friday, so ratings should be good for the potential milestone.

coryats equal to scores? has that ever happened before?

I focused on the wrong part of the final to come up with the answer.

Has any player led Amy at any point during the FJ round?

I started with Bastille, briefly considered the Tower of London, but then locked in Bastille. Not my category, except that it really should be.

This is not my bailiwick either, but 1070 gave it away. The Battle of Hastings was 1066, a number you're required by law to know if you play Jeopardy. That led me to London. And I figured the only thing that old (sure as heck not Buckingham Palace :shock: ) is the Tower of London.

Westminster Abbey is older, but not a bad guess for a building intended to win the hearts and minds of a populace.

I said Pentateuch for Torah. Judges?

I bet Ken got a slight chuckle over the players getting his religion’s name wrong.

Don't see why not. It was my answer, too.

Not to be confused with this result from one of Ken's games:

Jeff Hoppes: 11400+11400=22800

It has happened about 30 times, including once during Ken's run.

Amy really needs to figure out how to do a MSB when it's warranted.

Not a bad guess as you matched a former champ who has spent many hours in the archive.
