Re: Thursday, October 22, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

For viewers that do not like rapid fire clue selection this game may raise some blood pressures. For viewers that love fast play and all 61 clues this was a good one.

The fun clue of the day was 5-LETTER WORDS $600: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1YwQbrJb9LdQU_bsityTVZlk6BuQyPLT-/view?usp=sharing Cole found all the DDs: DD1 he led 7000 to 1400 to minus 200 and added 2500.

All done: http://www.j-archive.com/showgame.php?game_id=6848 12 TS clues for enough to get 10200 from the 4th podium. $7800 for me left me shy although I would have done enough on the buzzer (if not the DDs) to be in the necessary five figures to beat Carlos.

Re: Monday, October 19, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Has something like "First Lady Truman" always been acceptable? Yes, I know there's only one, but somehow I had the idea that a first name or moniker (such as Lady Bird) has always been required for first ladies. They didn’t mention her husband by name so just Truman should be acceptable. J7 is one ...

CBS All Access (becoming Paramount Plus in 2021) miniseries: The Stand The book came out in 1978 and expect it to hit the bestseller charts again later this year. J! likes that kind of stuff. :) The previous miniseries version was in 1994. The book is a door stopper with the uncut version over 1100 ...

All five days affected in Denver & Cincinnati. Wow.

Thanks for the post.

That would be funny/not funny if J! had Zach back on Nov. 3rd and he lost that day.

Nancy can look to any of her incorrect responses where she lost the game although her lack of pluralization in POE "M" would be a good one to rue. I guess being a software engineer does not mean automatic victory on J! Joe's place of regret is of course DD3 as $2000 box or not, he should have got it...
