Another group hug.

Juveria came in at 50% on FJ! clues. The percentage getting worse ended things when a get would have been a win.

Nice work by Luigi to make his DD plays count for the max when getting outbuzzed handily.

A little bit more of a tougher FJ! clue than Luigi could handle then Kevin could have stolen the game since Luigi bet big.

No chance for me on the FJ! clue as I was thinking airlines and had nothing for "Star".

It took five games for a 5xer or above from regular play to win.

My FJ pattern for the ToC has been miss hit miss hit miss. Didn't know Eurostar at all.

The good, the DD wagers and Kevin's FJ wager.

The bad, Luigi's FJ wager for two reasons. 1, the obvious, why in the world do you make the suicide wager? That's why it's called the suicide wager! This is the ToC, players are supposed to know how to wager and have had tons of time to learn such. 2, if when making the suicide wager, why hold back a dollar in a tournament where nothing matters but winning?

Regardless, it is nice to have real games to watch again.

This game is a draw for the Strong Form of Shore's Conjecture. The second-place player bet "big." --Bob

As someone who was weaned on The Electric Company, I found it HILARIOUS that Spider-Man was guessed for the Blue Beetle.

I may be the only boardie that did.

I got stuck on the translation and didn't figure out Eurostar until about 5 seconds too late.

I don't think I would have gotten that FJ except I've been doing research lately for an upcoming trip to London.

and I said February 28 interviews were wacky. at least there was one podcast thing the one that was nice unlike today. now I am really wondering who is approving of these interviews because usually they were not allowed some of the stuff that only do not fit the spirit of jeopardy but some of these do not fit in the spirit of keeping a PG rating.

for some of these there is not a topic, One of is which is someone basically trying to talk about basketball references without actually knowing basketball references (and I mean she is literally saying that. i am not saying 'she attempted to do that and noticed a flaw' that was the summary of her interview.) The other two were bad in their own way but had some sort of topic. (and I mean that loosely , 'since one of the topics was I have trouble making friends because of my age') (The last one is drag and since I do not fit into either those groups I am not going to comment on that, but there was something about song mixing for those who did not see.)

I had a Buzzy joke about how he hates the segment and sabotaged it but that might be going to far. I just hope this is the most of this. now I see why they just talked about peoples phone numbers for two months. even if they were to do these interviews that are not appropriate can they get someone who can write a question in a coherent sentence. anyway about the show itself (as in the answers) this is another Father Brown so that should definitely be on the list and probably already is. The questions were very nicey done I loved the party category.

I was with Juveria. I didn’t know the Chunnel train had a name.

Same! I went with EuroRail. The Chunnel came to mind, but like you I wasn't aware the train had a specific name.

On another note, I was sad to see Juveria go, my wife and I were fans of hers. We are glad, however, that she was able to win some good $$$ when she returned to the show!

Photo by me at St. Pancras station in 2014 -- it's hard to read behind the plastic barrier, but it does say "Eurostar" on the side of that train.

(No, I didn't take Eurostar. Maybe someday.)
