Re: Monday, February 10, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Games like this make me feel like I've really got a chance. Every now and then I think I could actually win a few games, while some days I'd just get steamrolled. Luck of the draw. I was confident in the FJ category and said I'd probably bet it all regardless of the score. My wife thought it would b...

Re: 2020 Jeopardy North American Audition Tour

45. Pittsburgh, I think, though I may have picked Baltimore. I'd have to sign in to check.

Re: Online Test Recap & Discussion (Pacific), January 30, 2020

45 on Tuesday (real), 35 on Wednesday (fun), 43 on Thursday (fun).

On the chance I do get the call I'm really hoping 35 was an outlier. Though the 35 did make me study a bit, and that's how I got Wagner and Marlowe.

Re: Online Test Recap & Discussion (Central), January 29, 2020

I took the test last night and got a 45. By far my best score (last year was a 41, which was also my best score at the time). Tonight I got either a 34 (or 35, if perestroika were to be accepted, though that seems a bit unlikely). Fortunately it was just for fun, and last night's was real, though th...

And for some reason I was between apples vs oranges for Jaffa and guessed wrong.
Well, you can't compare the two. :lol:
Was I the only one wondering between oranges and lemons?

Re: Online Test Recap & Discussion (Eastern), January 28, 2020

Did anybody else get the e-mail saying you've taken it? I didn't get a confirmation and I don't see a check next to the 2020 test. I really don't want to have a record performance and then have something not register. I noticed this as well. The J! website also doesn't say "test taken" with a check...

Re: Online Test Recap & Discussion (Eastern), January 28, 2020

Feeling much better than last year, that’s for sure! There were literally at least 3 that I got just from reviewing stuff today. I'm in this boat. I got several questions just from reviewing past tests and games this week. Those were Sagittarius, Macbeth, Missouri, and Dali. Of the ones I already k...

Re: Online Test Recap & Discussion (Eastern), January 28, 2020

I think I got 44 or 45 this time, assuming all of the listed answers are correct. That would be a record for me.

ETA: Nevermind, it showed up. I was starting to worry.

Re: GOAT Tournament Day 3 (1/9/20) Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

And DAYUM, Ken! Nicely done! Not looking good for James...sigh. I don't think he's going to win the tournament; I see his legacy getting tarnished. He may not win, but James has had a run of bad luck. The only one whose legacy might be getting tarnished is Brad, and that could be due to playing aga...

Re: James wouldn't have lost pre-James

Emma came in cold. She made that bet without having seen James play once. Sure. But she certainly is capable of dividing $2 million+/30+games Still, though. Emma has literally studied the game more than maybe three or four people here on JBoard. She knew what she was doing, James or no James. This....

James wouldn't have lost pre-James

It's a testament to James that the fundamental transformation of the game he brought about ultimately helped do him in. James had a relatively low Coryat, but only because the others were relatively high. Even so, he still led Emma by almost 5000. It was her true DD that made the difference, and I h...

Re: Monday, June 3, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Assuming the things I've been reading are true... ...it's pretty interesting that a few random people on Facebook had been saying things like "mid-March" and, more specifically, March 12. Some research showed that episodes taped March 12 would be airing the week of June 3. It would be interesting i...

Re: Alex Trebek Announces Diagnosis of Pancreatic Cancer

On a related topic, does anyone else believe that Holzhauer’s run is a gift for Alex? He is obviously enjoying the run though I think he enjoyed Jennings’ run more. Really? I get the sense that he can't wait for it to be over. I get this too. I think Ken was (is) much more amiable, while James seem...

Re: Monday, April 29, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I had no clue initially on FJ, but I did realize that the French "de" meant "of" and from the rest of the clue it was a fairly easy guess.

Adam can certainly hold his head high. Well-played game against one of the all-time greats.

Re: Final Jeopardy! Clues

There have been five different Bonds in that time span, but I don't think there's a common denominator in the title.
