Re: Thursday, May 6, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Reading the thread, I'm sensing a more widespread familiarity with the history of Andorra than I possess or would have guessed...Bishop of Urgell meant nothing to me...I guessed Switzerland... Isn't it about time they threw off the yoke of the president of France...?? In my case not its history. Ju...

Re: Thursday, May 6, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I applied the 50-50-90 rule to go with Liechtenstein. Any reasonable way to know it was Andorra instead? --Bob I mean, when you think of Charlemagne, do you really think of Switzerland and Austria?

Re: Thursday, May 6, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Discarded Monaco*, Liechtenstein, Luxembourg*, and Belgium* to arrive at the correct response. The correct response just sounded more like a princess name, or at least it has the suffix letter that is more commonly feminine in Romance languages. But apparently, the etymology of the country name is ...

Apparently we Need to bring The Final Wager Back. i dont get all the Bad Wagering Lately.
Elliott's wager wasn't necessarily bad although it obviously didn't work out. He apparently didn't have confidence in the category and bet to keep Hanna locked out. --Bob

Since the clue mentioned the "British spelling", I wonder if "Rumors" would have been accepted?
I was wondering the same thing about "Roomers." --Bob

Re: Jeopardy! Tournament of Champions alternates - who were they

Michael Shutterly of 1988 seems to be confirmed as the alternate on the archive There is a note on his player page to this effect, and an archivist probably wouldn't have entered that information without convincing evidence, but OTOH, the ToC contestant from that year that I talked to didn't have a...

Re: Friday, April 16, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I generally disagree with folks who claim a clue is "negbait", but I would be open to arguments in this case. I knew it, thanks to this FJ from many many years ago, but with "Utah" right there in the clue, you'd be hard pressed to guess anything but what the 3 contestants did. Tacking "in Californi...

The FJ! clue had me immediately rule out the popular wrong response (it will be on the poll) as I knew it was 1940s.
It also doesn't fit the category, which is why I ruled it out and ended up getting to the correct answer (which I wasn't certain was novella-length). --Bob
