Re: Monday, February 17, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Interesting interview with the new champ:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=10A_cWOde_Y
A lot of it was basic stuff about the show we already know, but she was clearly influenced by a great recent champion. Also a sighting of a different contestant (a JZL) about 4 minutes in. Are they related?

Re: Learned League 84

LL84 Rundles are posted. Looks like BlishS has ronan'd his way over to A Horizon. Chalk up another 'L' for me... Yeah, I clicked on the standings and thought the same thing... then clicked on his flag and saw he's facing me on MD1! :shock: I faced the equally formidable DhuwaliaR in the SF&F minile...

Re: Online Test Recap & Discussion (Eastern), January 28, 2020

48! I'm still in the pool until March so I took it off sherder's video. Were you at the September 2018 audition in Philadelphia? Because March is when my dip in the pool ends too. Also took today's off of the video but only managed 45/50. Totally blanked on a couple I kicked myself for just afterwa...

Re: Tuesday, January 7, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I think we can all agree that Karen's the best player of the decade. I'd put her at Silver for the next TOC.
I thought Buzzy was a Bronze and look how that prediction turned out....

Re: GOAT Tournament Day 1 (1/7/20) Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

My Coryat in Game 2 was twice that of Game 1, plus 200. I was at 0 for a long time in the first round of Game 1. I'm sure many of you had similar experiences. Impressive performances by all three! I'm a fan of all of them but Ken's long overdue for a tournament win... and with the most appearances o...

Re: LL83: Learned League

Congrats to BigDaddyMatty on his third straight A Horizon title. I finished with career highs in TCA, TMP, and CAA. If you'd told me four years ago that I'd crack 100 correct answers in a season and finish on the Maso leaderboard, I'd have :lol: I will be returning to A for a sixth straight season, ...

Re: LL83: Learned League

Since the start of last season, I've had as many ties as wins. #ARundleLife
I'm having my best season ever- in terms of qpct- thanks to two 6-packs and six 5's, but everyone brings their A-game when they play me.

Re: Tuesday, December 10, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Is Jennifer the first contestant with the last initial Q to win 5 games? I hope she won't be the last. She's been doing really well in her Rookie Rundle and I wouldn't be surprised if she makes it to A within two or three seasons. If she continues to hold the other contestants by the nose and kick t...

I know it was innocent, but why wasn't that first DD wager changed in post-production? Even though only a couple numbers are prohibited, it's still possible to get those numbers during the show, and as a result of that wrong answer, we got two of them.

Re: LL83: Learned League

Achievement Unlocked: 50 Losses in A, B, and C I'm actually at 51 now. 12 more wins in A and I'll have an achievement to be proud of. I imagine fewer than 2% of LLamas have 50+ wins (or losses) at three different levels. I've had a few Buckner ties but those don't count. Personal Records shows 433 m...

Re: Thursday, November 21, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I gave myself credit for "obtuse triangle." It starts with O and has no right angles, and it's a real term. A rare episode where I went 0/4 on the big clues, but a $33,800 Coryat and 40 R sort of made up for it. Tomorrow, all three contestants will be LLamas (a rarity), but it gets stranger... two w...

Great finish! All three deserved to be in the finals. Is this the first time in a TOC finals that the qualifier who played the most games faced two qualifiers who played the fewest? I had my worst game in ages; "Before, During, and After" ate me alive. But I did go 7/10 on FJ's this tournament, comp...

Was this taped at the Jeopardy studio or the Bonneville Salt Flats? All I kept hearing was vroom vroom ! Not just from one contestant, but all three, although the Bugatti sustained it longer. Who else sang "ThunderBALLLL" in their living room and held that note until they fainted? A possibly unbreak...

How was that Final a TS?! I thought one person might miss with Seventh Day Adventist, but I could never have expected all three of them would give the same incorrect response.

Re: Reretaken Down

Well, there go the Nationals' chances of ever moving back to Montreal. If the Expos do return, they should pick up where they left off (and make the Nationals a distinct team that started in 2005). Kind of like how the Ravens, who had originally inherited the Browns' history, gave it up once the Bro...

Leadville is an amazing city... um, town. It even has an opera house where perennial Jeopardy favorite Oscar Wilde performed! I stayed there (in the former governor's mansion) 8 years ago and remembered visiting the mining museum. Been there, done that, have the T-shirt.

Oof. I'm 11/25 so far this season.
I always check the Contestant Zone and check the LL site to see if any of them are LLamas.

I managed a winning record for the first time in A, tied a personal high in correct answers, and set a new personal high in ties. Over 4+ years, I've had three straight seasons with 78,...

What a game! And what a comeback! Jason couldn't have appeared in the Contestant Zone last week. The writers must've been on a Gilbert and Sullivan kick, with answers of "gondoliers" and that infernal nonsense Pinafore, and a DD about a yeoman of the guard. I've been a G&S fan for years and I still ...
