Re: Jeopardy All-Star Games

I'm with the several like minds on here and Reddit that this is certainly a confusing format. 6 teams, 10 games? I've been trying to make sense of it ever since I first heard about the tournament and I just can't. I'm guessing the first 8 games will be to decide which 3 teams play in a 2-game final...

Does anyone else watch J! with closed captioning on? The 'Ecclesiastes' and 'Psalms' responses' captions were swapped on WABC.

Did not get FJ! Ended up writing down Langley.

Re: Friday, May 18, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

It's like Claire wasn't even playing to win the tournament. Larry's smart wager on his DD all but locked up the championship for him. I thought FJ! was too easy. (A boundary between 2 colonies? Surely it can't be the Mason-Dixon Line.) Spent the last 25 seconds trying to think of any other famous bo...

I quickly went through cities in Georgia, NC, VA, Florida, Louisiana, and Mississippi... never thought of SC. Add me to the list for Charlotte.

What did Carolyn say on the Lesotho clue?
She said Lethoso, then Letoosoo.

No idea on FJ! for me. 4/5 isn't too bad.

Sean gets questionable thumbs ups from the judges on "veterinarian" and "discography". I thought they were also going to allow "disability". :roll:

I think it's definitely a clue that would have a huge demographic split. Hard to imagine why anyone under about 40 would know about PCH.
I'm 33 and I remember the TV commercials growing up and my parents occasionally getting them in the mail.

Got American Gothic, but what nearly tripped me up was Grant Wood being the correct final response in Austin Rogers' fifth game just a couple months ago. I thought there was no way the writers would ask about essentially the same thing so close together, but sure enough... I was thinking the same t...

Is it not so outlandish to think that TPTB would have allowed What is Sgt. Pepper's? and What is Sgt. Pepper? but not a half written response like Wilbur had?

I'm curious as to whether most people here went with 'sect' or 'cult'.

I went with the former.

And I totally blanked on FJ! Couldn't get 'monopoly' out of my head.
