Re: Monday, February 22, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

You could just see David deflate after the DD miss. How heartbreaking that had to be. I felt sorry for him...but that was a HUGE wager in a category that wasn't just knowledge-based. it should be an easy grab as it was picking out an animal in the text. 10k too much. 5k was a reasonable one, IMO .....

Fourth podium win is possible.
Haha, totally agree. I think i got around 50 this game. One of my best.

Would have lost in FJ though. very weak in late-1800's.

Re: Thursday, February 18, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Prosecco was my favorite WAG of the night, followed by the stab at a lucky Johnson. Go Leah!! Sorry, but A Stillness at the OK Corral wins for me. I was about to say... anything but that there. I'm fairly good at geography but not much on spirits. Was Asti a reasonable grab? William Jennings Bryan ...

What's hilarious is watching all the Twittiots saying he made the wrong FJ wager and that's why he, uh, finished where he did.
I saw that too. Laughed all so many who forget there's a third player. HAHA

still trying to figure out bow wow and pitbull came to the minds of the challengers before snoop dog I'll be honest, I didn't know the answer but Pitbull was the first to pop in my head. I thought we were going to see something special after the J! round with James setting a record and the other 2 ...

Re: Friday, May 24, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Scores at the end of the Jeopardy! Round James: 24600 Sam: 2200 Susan: minus 600 New record. This is the kind of game in which I really wanted him to find all the DDs to see what kind of bets he would make. Only thing is I wonder if he would have been able to come up with "pruning hooks." I can nev...

Re: Friday, May 24, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

The Geography ones have been so easy during James' run. I think I've only missed one since he started. East Neighbor or Mountains. Clingman's Dome/Chisholm Trail are the ones that may take a moment but Sun Valley is such a common ski resort nowadays. It's like Jackson Hole #2 in that part of the cou...

Re: Thursday, May 23, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Absolutely, have to do it. A normal game wager to hold lead was 6k but all the chips is the way to go. Too late now. the 7k would have been enough to take a higher total going into the final, correct? Correct. Nate wagered $6000 of his available $13400 on DD2. The extra $7400 would have put him $20...

Re: Thursday, May 23, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

So. To beat James, you have to do everything right. Nate played a great game and did ALMOST everything right. But almost is not enough. The 6000 wager is very reasonable in a "normal" game. You're doing well in every aspect of the game - against most people, being 13k+ ahead is a very good place to...

Re: Tuesday, April 16, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

The FJ wasn't that difficult. How many regions can you name that speak Russian or is a former Soviet Satellite? Pretty much one or two. No bonus points for knowing more like knowing Cities past Moscow, St. Petersburg, Volgograd(similar to river's name), Kaliningrad(exclave), Kazan(Tatar), Sochi(Wint...

During the break I wondered if he'd bet the ~31k he could afford to safely. Like there was ever any doubt :lol: what an easy week of FJs! How many episodes do you think he can go for? Until he misses a big DD and his opponents take advantage (so that the board being drained of high-value clues work...

one more thing: hate the happy birthday shtick (yeah, hate). when's scarlet's birthday? today? tape day? who cares? In the FJ! round he might want to spend more time on the clue and less on the shout out even in a runaway. Things can pop into your head 25 seconds into the clue at full concentration...

Had Stephanie slept through the first three games of the taping day and didn't know what she was up against when uncovering a DD in the 2nd row?

James didn't have the same buzzer mojo today.

I said (expletive deleted) Hanoi Jane for FJ? Judges?
They are not sequestered prior to the game(s)?
