Re: Tuesday, April 21, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

"Remembrance of Things Past", my old enemy, how I loathe thee. I just watched this damn show 10 hrs ago and I already don't remember the author again. This one may be a lost cause enemy for me too. FJ was a total blank, and the name didn't even sound familiar when it was revealed as correct. 35,000...

Re: Boardie Poll About Taking The Test

Passed the test in late 2016 and March 2019 and got auditions both times, April of 2017 and May of last year. Not sure what covid will do to the chances of those still in the pool though.

This game will be very frustrating for those who have taken & passed the test many times without an audition or THE CALL in wishing this was their day to be on stage.
Amen :(

The veni vidi vici debacle was just painful. That was on an audition test I took a few years back too.

Re: Online Test Recap & Discussion (Pacific), January 30, 2020

My scores for the week were 45/41/43, with the last one counting as my official entry. I got these exact same scores. Missed all the things I would usually expect to miss on this one... Ferrante, Johnson, Farrow, Buzzfeed, The Crown. Basically all the pop culture/recent literature :roll: Then 2 idi...

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

I felt okay on this one, which is worrisome. The first few questions felt tough, but it seemed to get easier for me as it went along. I already have a few brain farts, though. I could NOT come up with Macron in time! About two questions later, I yelled it at my comptuer. I don't think TPTB will acc...

I assume "dulcet" is a no-go on Speak Softly for $600?
FWIW, I also said "dulcet"
I also had "dulcet"
A fourth for dulcet

so you are saying the woman who won today's episode has zero chance of going deep? That is not at all what I said, or think. Anyone has a chance. Just the early firepower from Lindsey had a different feel to it. No offense in the slightest to Susan, who clearly has the chops to have hung in there d...

Re: Friday, October 11, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Lindsay just looked really upset, and can't blame her with the early dominance it looked like she had. She just couldn't keep it rolling on the buzzer and then got tentative on the DD too. Sad, because I feel like we are way past due for another female superchampion.

I had to sort through my mental catalogue to see if there was anything else it could possibly be. I came up with the right answer instantly and spent the rest of the time trying to think of anything else to possibly consider, and came up with Tornado Alley but quickly dismissed it. Coryat: 33,400

This was an instaget for me, but the Eagles are my favorite band.

that is certainly possible, but isn't the male/female portion of the registration process only in the past (maybe) two years?
Hmmm good point. Possibly? Can’t quite remember now but I think it was for both tests I took, which would go back to 2016 at least.

My girlfriend took the online test 3 times since 2013 and has gotten auditions all 3 times Has this happened to anyone else? I am truly of the belief that the audition selection is not actually random, as they allege. I am also female, and have gotten auditions out of both tests I took and passed, ...

Curious if ANYONE missed the "Every Good Boy" mnemonic? Not a poll request, just chime in if you didn't get it. It would seem like a very oblique clue for anyone who's avoided traditional music training. It certainly is a YEKIOYD, even if it's easy for the 99% who know it. I'll avoid my soapbox abo...

I took too long to realize they were not looking for something in or around Africa too, and by the time I got to the general region all I could spit out in time with the right amount of letters was Indonesia, which I realized made no sense.

Re: Jeopardy 2019 North American Audition Tour

I'm really curious to know how much harder this second test is! I know you can't share the questions, but do you think the questions were fair game? Were they all $2,000 level clues? I believe the test was fair. I'm probably exaggerating that I didn't pass, though I think there's definitely a few q...

Re: Jeopardy 2019 North American Audition Tour

I’d be lucky to have passed the 2nd. Several questions in my extreme weak spots and the first half I had so many blank/guessed that I basically just laughed it off while being thankful I got probably around 45 on the first. My group today was 21 people, and there were also 21 in another room concurr...

Re: Jeopardy 2019 North American Audition Tour

I was at the final Boston session today, and we were given 2 written tests, and told that one was basically a guinea pig run for a future online test. They told us they would only count our highest score out of the 2. The second was considerably harder in my opinion and that of others I talked to.
