Re: Tuesday, January 29, 2013 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

Assuming he loses in one of the first 3 games after the TOC, which were presumably all taped on the same day as this one, Joshua will have a long time to prepare himself for the next TOC. I'm assuming that would probably fall in May 2014, with taping in March or April, and tonight's game was probab...

Re: Monday, November 14, 2011 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOILERS)

Side note: I thought Buddy made a pretty good wager in this game, though I'm not sure everyone would agree. If I'm Buddy, I figure there's a decent chance Roger goes for a new record and bets big in FJ. I am pretty sure Tom is going to try to double up. So I can hope for a triple stumper and be rig...

Also, there's often the unknown of just what the category is really about—you can't always tell from the name of the category. Roger's all-in bet in the Languages category was incredibly risky. As it turned out, the clue was not especially difficult, but the one revealed immediately afterward prove...

Re: Monday, November 7, 2011 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOILERS)

My point is that dismissing a run-through of noble gases because only one begins with K (which I inferred you were doing, apologies if I was mistaken) is, as has been put at times on this board, assuming contestant knowledge not in evidence. Although noble gases are a small list and this may not ha...

Re: Thursday, November 10, 2011 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOILERS)

I also thought that the J board was the hardest of the TOC (including tonight's DJ board) with lots of neg bait. A fair amount of Lach Trash for me on the Order cat (Primates and Rodents TSs? Really?). I also felt that Jay may have hurt himself with the DD hunting. No hope on FJ beyond knowing whic...

Wow - what a game...I had forgotten exactly how ugly that game was. So let me address a few of the questions that have come along in the thread thus far: Yes - Eva and Zsa Zsa was a complete joke answer. I have always believed, if you can't be right, be funny. As to why I didn't get the last name do...

Re: Monday, November 7, 2011 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOILERS)

Erin is 100% correct - I was in a stress induced amnesia about this game as well. Glad I got my DD's correct - maybe I'll get up to 50% for my career by the end of this (for those keeping score at home). I played the second one conservatively, since I had a big lead, it was late in the game, Erin is...

Was on the old board too - wanted to keep a low profile until the ToC field was announced. I'll probably be posting more now that my qualification is out of the bag.
