Re: Tuesday, March 2, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Zipped around the Eastern Hemisphere and somehow hit the right name at the 29 second mark. I think my scribble of "Netanyahu" is good enough. *Phew*

Congrats to Jon, would like to see how he handles a DD hunter.

Re: Thursday, February 25, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Knew FJ cold from both 1993 and the population factoid. Hopefully that breaks me out of my FJ slump over the past two weeks. Congrats to Michael on winning one for New England. I wondered why his FJ wagers ended with 27, but I guess we'll never know. Aaron disclosed this in one of the Reddit game th...

Re: OBIT: Brayden Smith

I enjoyed Brayden's run perhaps more than most as a fellow 20-something and baseball card/book collector (not to mention his skill as champion and being a person of the highest quality).. One of my favorites, no doubt. Absolutely heartbroken to hear this news. I'm glad he got to have the J! experien...

Took a second to process Weimar, but it was smooth sailing after that. 3/3 FJ this week. (*knocks on wood*) I do know the woah, did not know it fast enough to get credit. I think I have the episode somewhere on my DVR, but thanks to this uploader for having it ready: From Jason Z. game 18.. https://...

Re: Wednesday, February 3, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I like this FJ clue.. lots of different parts here. Went from Greco-Roman God to Nuit, then checked my work with Sun King. (Point B to C to A.)

The Cape Cod TS hurt for this New Englander, but I'll gladly scoop up that miss from home. Congrats to Nicole for the sole solve and lock win.

Re: What tournaments are in store for Season 37?

I wonder who hosts the ToC? At the very least, they have to make sure everyone from S36 doesn't have a Kennection. Since Ken is a S37 consulting producer (I may have the title wrong), I'd imagine he'd be on the list of "people you can't have a personal connection with" if you wanted to be a contest...

Re: Wednesday, January 27, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Got both halves of FJ right. Sitting Bull did not come to mind, but Buffalo Bill was on my radar. Obviously the timelines didn't quite line up there. Brian was less than stellar in BOOKS BY PRESIDENTS including losing it all on DD1. When the FJ! category was shown I thought to myself that perhaps Br...

Re: Tuesday, January 19, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Like Bamaman, for FJ, had to guess between Motel 6 and Super 8. Guessed correctly, but my logic was merely "which one have I heard mentioned on Jeopardy! more often?" Turns out the 8 was from $8.88, so the rate wasn't actually in the name. Good to know. Thanks for saving me the google search LOL, I...

Re: 2020 in review and whats in store for 2021

I hope we see the next ToC before the end of the season, if it's feasible. I'm becoming less and less convinced it will be possible based on the ever-growing swell of outrage against Ken. It's really turning into a witch hunt out there and Ken's being painted as a monster based almost exclusively on...

Re: Thursday, December 17, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

This FJ is another opportunity to wonder if certain facts known to “older” people might be more obscure to the younger generation. Doubt that Cyrano is as well known as it used to be. I think you're probably right on this. I think I'm a year or two younger than Brayden; got this FJ, but only knew i...

Immediately wrote Socrates, then spent ten seconds thinking about Galileo.. but Galileo is not exactly part of the ancient world LOL. Went back to Socrates so no harm, no foul.

Looks like Cody was on Millionaire a few years back. Fun game overall, congrats to Kristen on the W.

Another well-played game and another quality win for Ryan. He has outplayed a number of quality challengers during his run. FJ was not an instaget but I felt reasonably confident that it had to be Uganda. Agreed on all counts, Ryan seems to have a good feel for game strategy. End of the alphabet go...

Enjoyed this game, props to all three contestants. Dog breeds is not exactly a category I'd like to see in FJ, but "Alpen" --> St. Bernard I can handle. Dachshund did come to mind briefly, however. For the ToC possibilities: College Nibir Teacher Ben 8x: Jennifer, Karen and MacKenzie 5x: Sam, Paul a...
