Re: Thursday, January 20, 2022 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I'm not thrilled with the sameness of Ken's opening statements these past few weeks. Almost every intro is about how remarkable Amy is. They're quick to mention when Amy has achieved a new personal best, like she did at the end of today's game, but they're so focused on the positive that they won't ...

Re: J! in the Media

Damn, it makes me mad that they wouldn't let her host. They had only four female guest hosts last year and three of them weren't regular viewers of the show. Two of them didn't want to be considered for the permanent host gig, and that's mostly how we ended up with Mayim. Maybe they should've auditi...

Re: Thursday, January 13, 2022 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Good work, Cory. You're so far the only challenger this week who scored a $10,000+ Coryat. Blegh! I am 0/4 on FJ! this week. If I don't solve tomorrow's clue, this will be my first 0/5 of the season. (My guess was "gun." Wrong killing device.) Whenever I watch Jeopardy!, I like to figure o...

Re: POLL: What do we think of having an annual ToC?

There are probably worthy 3 and 4-game winners in every ToC cycle. In the current cycle, I wish they would include Lucy Ricketts, Emily Sands, and Josh Saak, but I don't think that's happening. In James Holzhauer's cycle, there were a lot of excellent 4xers who failed to qualify. The only thing that...

Re: J! in the Media

Releasing buzzer stats does indeed seem like a small game-changer. I unequivocally love this decision. Looking at yesterday's box scores, even though Emma successfully buzzed only once in DJ!, she apparently tried to buzz in 12 times. That's really interesting. Here's a curious thing Michael wrote. ...

Re: Friday, January 7, 2022 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

The first time I'd ever heard of Thor Heyerdahl and the Kon-Tiki was from the All Star games. And I only hear about those two through Jeopardy!, never anywhere else.

My FJ! get-rate has been slip-sliding off a cliff lately. In the past two weeks, I've done only the bare minimum to avoid a 0/5.

Re: Wednesday, December 29, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Jeez. I admire Amy greatly, but she's been shaky in recent games. This game was her shakiest so far.

Good FJ! even though I missed it. I wrote down "Titanic" and "Carpathia," then crossed out "Carpathia" at the last second. I assume "700" was a key hint.

Re: Monday, December 27, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Amy has regained her level of total mastery. I got the Hockney and Constable clues (and MGK), but I think this is her back at peak performance. FJ: 1955 + difficult to understand play made me think of Waiting for Godot. I'm not sure if that play is actually difficult to understand as I've never seen...

Re: Friday, December 24, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Amy is starting to play sloppy. It started with yesterday's game. 2 Triple Stumpers from the Thursday game that took me aback: Amy not even taking a guess on the number of amendments passed, and then, even more shockingly, Amy not being able to name the President of the United States in 1806. Amy's ...

Re: Friday, December 17, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

If FJ goes the other way Sam regrets his small FJ bet and his spoons WAG. On the contrary. Sam's best wager would've been $1,801. That would've shut out Ed if they had both gotten it right and Ed had doubled. Ed's maximum if he had doubled would've been $35,400. Sam's $2,000 + a correct response pu...

I think I'm the only one who solved this by knowing one of North Dakota's nicknames is the "Roughrider State". That made it easy.

My bad. I thought you meant that you had the last name right, but the first name wrong. What you put is fine.

"Adlai Stevenson" even though it asked for the last name only. I'm guessing that would've been incorrect, but the Commissioner is sometimes unexpectedly lenient, so I'm not sure. … Judges? Wrong first name is always wrong. Was that the wrong first name? It's the correct first name for bot...

To Volante: Ack, you're absolutely right. I hate it when people say "Alex wouldn't do this," "Alex wouldn't do that," even though there are countless examples of him doing exactly that. And now I've committed the same mistake. :roll: Apologies to Mayim.

Got FJ after about five seconds of thought. The "former name of northwest Africa" part helped me more than "primate," but both were helpful. I wrote "Barbary Coast," which I agree would've been accepted. I really don't like the text info that's been added to the bottom ...

I felt like Mayim overexplained the "Post Doctoral" category. She said, "Responses start with 'D-O' and come after 'doctoral' alphabetically." We've seen a lot of "Post [blank]," "Pre [blank]," "Before [blank]," and "After [blank]" categori...
