I don't think they sell Dove chocolate bars in Canada. If they do, I've never seen them before.
They are chocolate-covered ice cream bars.
They make chocolate candy and candy bars as well.

Re: The Official TPH Education Thread (POTENTIAL GAME DAY SPOILERS)

What was the TOM for Trojan War in Plays for $400? I was trying to find a war that occurred in the 1600s, and I don't see anything pointing to Trojan whatsoever. The clue said "ancient war". You could guess Peloponnesian, or Punic, or probably several other things, but to me Trojan is the most obvi...

Re: Friday, March 27, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Oof! Yes, these last couple of days have not been game play at its finest, but this did seem to be a nadir, redeemed mostly by Khalila as a player. FJ was tougher then yesterday’s gimme, but still easily reasoned out. I knew the Emmy Awards began in 1949, but I recently learned that the National Ac...

That was the thing. I had literally zero point of reference as to how far away the "500 years" was from the event.

Re: Learned League 84

Thorsten now has unlimited advanced access for the rest of the season if you need it. I also noticed you can now block people from tracking you if you want. Is there somewhere to see if you are being tracked? And are you saying you can select who tracks you, or just make it so no one can track you?...

Re: Reretaken Down

Does seem like an absurd number of guests but I never look at this, maybe it's just normal? Refreshing repeatedly I saw wild swings of up to 50 or so within seconds so who/what ever they are, lots of them coming and going at a rapid pace.

Is The Rock any part Tahitian?
American/Canadian/Samoan, from what I can find.
My assumption was the Tahitian part of the clue was supposed to point you toward a film set in Polynesia and the South Pacific, not specficially to Tahiti.

Re: Thursday, February 27, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I think the premise is you should always know the first and last name of the person you wish to answer correctly This would be a false assumption. If you are certain of the last name you should almost always ring in. To lose money two things must happen. 1, you are prompted for a BMS. 2, you then g...

Re: Thursday, February 27, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Since the word "she" was in the clue, I figured "Curie" would have been enough. Do we refer to Irene as "Curie" or as "Joliot-Curie"? I didn't even realize she went by the hyphenated "Joliot-Curie" until today. As did her husband! Actually, in some brief internet research (of dubious reliability, o...

Re wagering Great that she goes big on DD3 but holding back the 1,000 should have cost her today. And yes it’s her money and she can bet it anyway she likes. We can objectively review her FJ wager as to optimal strategy. IMO choosing 19% of ~31K (6k) vs 47% of 15+k (7.5k) is the obvious way to look...

Re: The Jeopardy! Anytime Test

Do you really think they want you using their test as a toy, playing 49 questions or whatever and then bailing on the last one? I know their FAQ says if you don't complete the test you can start from scratch but it feels like that was probably put in place to account for stuff like disconnections, n...

It's the whole "more than once" that I find irksome. Contestants should get one freebie in the J! round then penalized for any further omissions. Someone who's been on more recently would probably know better than me, but I thought that was the rule -- you get one mulligan in SJ and then get negged...
