Re: Thursday, January 14, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Anyone see something wrong in this clue? "Monarchos in 2001 & this horse in 1973, still the record holder, are the only horses to run the Kentucky Derby in under 2 minutes." The response taken (Secretariat) is still correct even if the clue were given properly, but the clue should actually have rea...

Re: Thursday, September 27, 2007 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

What is the highest score a contestant has achieved before either other contestant has been heard from?

Re: Tuesday, April 4, 2006 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Alex mentioned the game from the day before had a bad J round and a bad FJ round. He was right about that. The total score going into FJ was -$200. Is that a record? Paging cheezyguy. That is one of only two games in the Archive where the contestants had a negative total going into DJ; in the other...

Brayden is 8/8 after two games on wagering clues. cheezguyty: Any big names on the list for doing that in their first two games? Jennifer Quail is the only other person I could find who has done that (keeping in mind that many early ToCers don't have their original runs Archived). Brayden has a cha...

Austin (Texas) & (Ginger) Rogers.
Show #7286 had a clue about Austin (Texas) immediately following a clue about (Buck) Rogers.

That game was the one where Buzzy Cohen (who beat Austin in the ToC) dethroned Andrew Pau (who lost to Austin in the ToC)! :o

Re: Form of a Question Question

I am certain I remember this exact phrasing -- "Is it X?" -- being accepted on a show within the last 15 years. It was a female contestant and I believe the clue was a DD. No doubt some Archive wizard can find it. Is it "Is it oak?" ? Possibly, or it might be the one Bob referred to; see if you can...

I should have pointed out that the Security Council and New England clues were both Daily Doubles and were from the early seasons of the show, as were most of those examples. The only five-part response that they've asked for during the last fifteen years has been the five Ws.

Re: Friday, December 11, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I question the writers' assertion that the film title How Green Was My Valley is a question. Not only is there no question mark in the title (as there were in the category's other correct responses), but also the phrase is not expressed as a query in the film. It's an expression of fond remembrance...

Re: Reretaken Down

Square brackets would be the natural way to do it in an academic paper. But that might seem too highfalutin for Jeopardy! "There wasn't any Democratic Party. There was just Willie [Stark]" Yeah, that'd be the Proper way, but it doesn't feel like J! I ruled that out right quick. I'm curious if any c...
