Re: Thursday, June 4, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I believe there’s a grand total of two notable people who have perished in a motorcycle crash. I’d guess that if you asked 50 boardies to name one, about 35 would say Lawrence, about 8 would say Allman, and the rest kicking themselves for blanking on something they knew. Pete Conrad, third man to w...

Re: Wednesday, June 3, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Alex gives us a Belgian accent for Poirot and whatever that was for McCarthy (he was from Wisconsin, not Mississippi) but he couldn’t help us out with a German accent on Kissinger? Yeah, the McCarthy thing was funny. I wonder if Alex was doing Johnny Iselin from The Manchurian Candidate. Sounded li...

Re: Monday, May 18, 2020 Final Wager

Since this has come up multiples times, there is statistically no difference in wagering either $0 or $1 from Megan’s position. Any other wager greatly reduces winning chances partially because 2nd place doesn’t always wager everything. Except in this case, Ben telegraphed that he knew exactly what...

Re: Monday, April 27, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Although Grant seemed too obvious, I was thinking of his boozing reputation, which might make him lethargic enough to hold still.

When Lauren responded "Code Red" I was expecting Alex to make some coincidental comment about her red blouse. Wrong? Oh chit, that's right... it's Code Blue :oops:

Re: Monday, April 27, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Sarah got to give an oral thesis in the FJ! round where usually not a peep is heard aloud from contestants during that round. Let's hope they don't start making a habit of allowing that. Awkward explanations = bad box office Otherwise, she is a very pleasant contestant. I didn't know "hot mess" mea...

Re: Thursday, April 23, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Especially Sgt Pepper. That album alone gets you three of the five clues. They should've just gone for all five, rounding things out with Lovely Rita and Mr. Kite. Or, if you prefer, Albert Hall. This is pretty much what I was going to post. However, I would like to have seen Dr Robert come up in p...

Gary looks like a pretty good player. Looking for him to go on a run.... On the other hand, he thought John Lennon wrote Something . That tells me he has some holes in his knowledge base. I don't think he had any clue who wrote it, but after Andrew ruled out McCartney, it was worth taking a flier o...

I bet you not a single soul could name any of the artists who have done any of said covers. Or anyone who's ever had success with a Beatles cover ever The Mammas and the Pappas: I Call Your Name Carpenters: Ticket To Ride Joe Cocker: With A Little Help From My Friends , She Came in Through the Bath...

Re: Monday, April 6, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I'm astonished Marshall finished the game above 15K, considering how far behind the eightball he was at DD3. The gimme FInal certainly helped him. Had Emma answered correctly, Marsall would still be in good shape for a wildcard. It sucks that after dominating the scoreboard for the first two/thirds ...

Poll request for Silver Dollars.
I'm kind of surprised it was even a bottom row clue.

Re: Tuesday, March 31, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

US State + named after an English county = only one choice as far as I know. Pretty straightforward once you ignore the coastline part of the clue. For me, the coastline part was the key. It might as well have just said, "This state has an 18-mile coastline." But that's what made it a good clue... ...

Re: Friday, March 27, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Sad to see Susan go, as she grew on me quickly in her second game. Her FJ wagering situation wasn't quite what I wanted it to be to shed light on her unorthadox bet for Thursday's Final. She did, however, make the absolute necessary all-in bet this time, which would have won her the game with a sing...

Re: Thursday, March 26, Final Wagers

J..... And Evan didn’t even try to win the game. Looks like Evan assumed Susan would make the normal cover wager, which would have dropped her to 5199, and Evan left himself with 5201. That part of it makes sense - he was just thwarted by a lower-than-expected wager from Susan. You have to factor A...

...Fawlty Towers in the '70s? Monty Python would've been a better guess. :shock: ... ?? Fawlty Towers was aired first-run from 1975-1979. It's true I suppose, MP would have been more likely to have an audience advisory... but I'm not sure what "concerns" either Cleese show ever addressed. The sale ...

How is Lobster Thermidor a TS?

So Michonne went into FJ with the lead, got FJ right, and lost. I could spend a week criticizing that wager, but why bother? The result speaks for itself. And yet, it happens so rarely that we're allowed to scream WTF!!! I was ready to scold Kimberly for underbetting on her Daily Doubles and going ...

Re: Wednesday, March 18, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Newfoundland was an evil clue since "canine" pushed me toward Labrador. Count me as answering Labrador. I was shocked when Kris was ruled incorrect. being aired so early over here (12:30 pm EDT) means 2 1/4 of the 3 games this week have been preempted. :( That's been the case for The Price Is Right...
