Re: Friday, May 28, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Pulled out Poland pretty fast. I went to Yugoslavia first and realized that there were no countries that made it up that could surround an existing country. Greece and Albania touch each other. Based on the country having to have to be surrounded. I went as far west in Europe as I could and got West...

Re: Thursday, May 27, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Unpopular opinion that's gonna make everyone in this thread flip out: Jennifer isn't as great as she's made out to be. First, what was she made out to be and what did she do to prove that she isn't that. She missed a daily double that I would have never got. I can tell you that if I've ever heard o...

Re: Thursday, May 20, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I'm impressed by anyone who got that FJ and hasn't lived in the Mid-Atlantic region or at least spent a lot of time there. Well, I'm unipressed with the guy who does live there that didn't come up with it. Years ago I heard this song, and I remember reading a little bit into it at the time, but it ...

Re: Thursday, May 20, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I said Calvert and then wrote Baltimore really fast to have a second name. What makes it kinda dumb is that I live in Pennsylvania, and didn't even think of Penn. What makes it a lot dumber is that they are the same person. When you only have thirty second and you have to come up with two names. You...

Re: 2021 TOC wild card standings (Game 3 entered)

This is kinda hard because we may not do so well separating the fact the the contestants have no idea where they stand for a wild card. I know I'd be targeting right around 15,000 in the survive and advance mode, and would want to be at 12,500 minimum. I liked Jason's all in at 9,400. I didn't think...

Re: Tuesday, May 11, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Then her bet actually looks, pretty smart. I find it interesting that Juliets wager, wins on a triple stumper, if Jeff makes the bet to cover for second place (the text book 5,201) Also, if second and third bets they way you think they should then she would have won on a triple get. The fact that s...

No matter how often the dead wagering horse is beaten, contestants never seem to comprehend the concept. Am about to give up, throw up my hands, and exclaim “I informed you thusly, I so informed you thusly!” Unless you are complaining the Jeff's over wager (because he did, based purely on game theo...

Re: Rename the "lock-tie"?

Lock-tiebreaker This is accurate and simple yet indicates the difference from when ties were allowed. Nah, Chu Dilemma just sounds better. Anything with dilemma sounds better, or something similar. You have to make it sound like the leader is up against something. I also like: The Chu Quandary The ...

In Southern California, Ding Dong Ditch was perpetrated by small groups, targeting the object of crushes. With more time, equipment, and a slumber party setting, we'd've toilet papered the entire yard. Grew up in the northeast. I never heard of ding dong anything. We called it, "ring bell and run"

Re: Tuesday, May 4, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Emily is the first champ that I've notice there you can really see the Holzhauer effect in a single player. All in on 6 out of 8 daily doubles. It takes guts, but it works. Based on Coryat score she only had one really strong game versus her competitors. That was Friday and that game included the tw...

Re: Friday, April 23, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Seriously, someone explain to me the logic of both Kelly and Dan's wagers. Dan's especially. IMO, Dan miscalculated and didn't know that he had exactly half the value of first place. He thought that Kelly had already won the game, so he bet enough to lock at Kimberly in third place. Kelly's bet, he...

Re: Friday, April 23, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Also, I understand game theory, which is saying bet a buck. It does give you the absolute best chance of winning especially if the 2nd place player doesn't bet properly. That happened today. In my book, I'll reduce my chances of winning by a couple of percent in efforts to win the extra money. In t...

Re: Friday, April 23, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

If the category is “Baseball” in Final Jeopardy, I’d play for the win and not the potential for a buzzer race tiebreaker. If the category is “The History of Opera,” I am betting $0 and praying that the person in second either misses or wagers poorly. For me, we have a winner. It depends on the comf...

Re: How Did Aaron Rodgers Do as Host?

No way Rodgers is hosting anything full time until his NFL days are done. Green Bay is paying him way too much to let him do a second full time job. I'm sure they would object and they have every right to. I will say he has set himself up very well to be doing what Peyton Manning and Micheal Strahan...

Don't care for FJ in that filmed the most is debatable, but I don't think they were going to get in the standard of what the definition of being filmed is. Major studio, animation...whatever within the clue. They do define the number of lines and longest play. So there is only one answer that meets ...

I started at Sagittarius then thought, "wait, what about Orion?" Only settled on Orion based on the flimsy assumption that in the absence of other TOM, it would be more obvious to the average viewer. I kinda had both at the same time, but got it right based on the same logic. I've also come to the ...

When in doubt, the most frequent correct response on Jeopardy! is Australia.
I thought it was Germany when in doubt, but it works either way.

I also thought the DJ board was one of the easiest boards I've seen in a while.

I have no idea how many hours (or days) it would have taken me to figure out the correct title. To avoid a blank page I wrote Song of the South .

For FJ, I knew Buenos Aires and Lima for sure (Thanks, Sporcle!) and spent the majority of Think Time considering what would be the third. Choosing between Bogota, Caracas and Quito, I went for Caracas. So close... Impressive debut by Pasquale. It’ll be interesting to see if he can replicate that p...
