Re: Wednesday, January 20, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I'm shocked that the wagering police have not put in an appearance on the board after today's FJ. Did I miss a memo declaring a moratorium on wager-related finger-wagging? Was my comment too tepid? I knew I should have scolded more! It's a good thing for poor Hannah that Brian got it right. Nothing...

Re: Monday, January 18, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

The problem is that Jennifer's incentivized wager is *too* small, since Donesh's bet is too big to save him on the double stumper if she's betting in the $1,601-$4,800 range that makes the most sense for her here. If Donesh wants to be clever here, his wager needs to be WAY smaller. I guess that I'...

Re: Monday, January 18, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I enjoyed Jennifer's savvy wagering over the past two games. Helen got away with a bad one. Congrats to Donesh on a game well played, although he also got away with a FJ wager. Maybe Donesh had a hunch that Jennifer would wager wisely. She actually could have bumped her wager by 1299, but it still ...

Re: Thursday, January 14, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Brett's game just came right off the rails after he got the rebound on the Declaration of Independence. Peeved that they didn't finish the AUTOMOBILES category. Lucy took a silly guess at the 2000 clue, then managed to snipe the Ford clue to bail out of that category with time running out. :x I'll b...

I was thinking earlier in the week how there was going to be a bit of irony with a guy named Gilligan on the very last episode of Alex Trebek Jeopardy.
I’m sure I’m missing something obvious, but what is ironic about this?
Gilligan was not known to be very bright.

Another bit of Irony: One of the TS responses was Prestidigitation . I think the only time I ever heard that word before was in an episode of Gilligan's Island .

If Millionaire sticks around for another season what money level would it be: Who was the last champion of the Alex Trebek era of Jeopardy! ? A: Jim Grant B: Jim Gilligan C: Jim Howell D: Jim Summers To me it would not work at all unless a "Bob Denver" hint was added. I was thinking earlier in the ...

Re: Wednesday, December 9, 2009 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Benjamin Franklin for me.

I really love the roman numeral math category. I imagine it would be tough to deal with some of those under the lights. I was only able to get two of them in the same reaction time as the contestants. It felt like I needed an extra 5 seconds on the others.

Re: Tuesday, April 4, 2006 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Michael caught a break when Lizard could not solve the quite gettable FJ! clue and it led to riches and more appearances. Well, it is not as if Lizard showed much confidence in himself by wagering to guarantee second if he missed rather than a win if he was right. Lizard would have won by $12,599 i...

Appreciated the re-airing of this game, since I missed all of Ken's original run due to living in a black hole for TV reception back then.

I guessed Sydney Opera House at about the 25 second mark. The year just seemed about right.

Opus, thanks so much for the tip. Kate was one of my favorite contestants of this season, and I was furious about the preemption.

Re: Movie title questions

I question the writers' assertion that the film title How Green Was My Valley is a question. Not only is there no question mark in the title (as there were in the category's other correct responses), but also the phrase is not expressed as a query in the film. It's an expression of fond remembrance...

Re: Friday, December 11, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Kristen was a delightful contestant so it was tough to see her blow what should have been a default win on a TS Final. On the other hand, I warmed to Kate when it was revealed that she was a hockey fan/player. And she has such a calm demeanor and confidence when she responds to clues. I'm looking fo...

Re: Friday, December 4, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

So evidently, Fred's wagering theory is to presume his nearest opponent will wager what he himself should wager, in order to cover said opponent. :?

For the nth time this week, 2nd or 3rd place screwed the pooch for any chance to win on a TS.

Re: Wednesday, November 25, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

"Academy Award in 1988" was all I needed for FJ. Yeah, isn't it a thing for all J! hopeful boardies to have the Best Film/Actor/Actress, etc. mostly memorized? At least up to the turn of the century. I had to re-read the clue to make sure they were going for best actress. It was worded kind of awkw...

Re: Monday, November 23, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

For MA I took a guess with no real knowledge. Different place, but I was linking physics, so science, "like MIT?" to risk it as I had a 16.67% chance. On that clue, I conflated Robert Goddard with Mark Goddard of Lost In Space . I happened to know that after his TV career, Mark G had been a teacher...

Re: Wednesday, November 18, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Andy can wipe his brow after getting past that game with Deanna playing well. It's hard to fault her for not betting huge on DD3 as so few players would go as high as she ended up needing for a lock. Given Andy's wager, all she had to do was bet $0 on FJ. But how can you know a thing like that? And...

Re: Wednesday, November 11, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

A ton of LT up for grabs, but shy of the 17600 needed to win from the 4th podium. Actually, the 4th podium would only need 10001 after DJ to win with a correct FJ response. Doug didn't even bet the max he could have (6699) to keep Daniella locked out, but he still would have shot down Greg on a R-W...

Noticed slightly different theme music for the closing credits. Might that have been from Season 1?
