It's been one week since you looked at me, cocked your head to the side, and said you're sorry.

Re: Friday, January 19, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

I'm not really following the bets by Lee or Rachel. Lee probably assumed that Rachel would cover him, so why risk finishing in third? And if Rachel was going to go big, why not bet to cover Lee? That's because neither made any sense. Rachel apparently had no idea that even with a correct response t...

Re: Friday, January 19, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

what do I do with the other 27 seconds of Think Music after writing down "What is Ottawa?" That would be the perfect time to (carefully!) have a little fun: 1. write your “ Ottawa?” at the very bottom of the screen 2. write something short and fun, and strike it out as you go 3. repeat step 2, as t...

Re: College Tournament taping postponed

Strange indeed The website shows audience tickets available for tapings on Jan 18, 23 and 24, so I'm speculating this has nothing to do with Alex's well-being The 18th is new. Tapings had previously been scheduled for the 16th and 17th. I took this adjustment (vs. a cancellation as a hopeful sign f...

Re: Tuesday, January 2, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

The players also liked to switch categories and that uses time to show the board before the next clue is revealed. Really? Is the “forrest bounce as gameplay slowdown” a well-established fact that I’ve just never noticed? the cadence of category+amount —> clue —> buzzer —> answer —> result —> repea...

Re: Thursday, December 14, 2017 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

With no one getting the answer correct, the returning champ should have been the winner. How do you figure, given he finished behind someone who bet $0? Incidentally, how has no one mentioned the folly of Brennan's standing pat? Assuming Craig makes the predictable "internal shutout" bet of $5201, ...

Thank you, gentleman and penguin, but I wish to point out that I am a redhead with personality to spare, and trust me, I sassed Maggie at my last audition as much as she sassed me!
Nice! I will be thinking good thoughts for you on Tuesday - this is your time!! 8-)

Re: The Buzzer!

I just want to thank you all again for your suggestions and tips. Tonight, playing along at home, was my third night of using my index finger on my pen from my last audition and I'm getting really comfortable with it. By the time I get to the audition next Tuesday, I think I'll be fairly good with ...

This was the question that Rick Rosner sued ABC and WWTBAM over . I suspect I'm not the only person around here who remembers it that way. Remember reading about that incident from Brainiac , and specifically, the appearance of Quito. Was absolutely certain that was it .. turns out that was just on...

Congrats Sims. That high five at the end is great. Austin looked *so* happy for her too! (It might've been partly "finally, it's over (for now)", but I think a lot of it was genuine happiness for Scarlett. Part of the reason I like Austin. Agreed. Austin’s appearance on Fallon last night included h...

dice nicknames - what a letdown!

I thought the Dice category clues were poor. As a life-long craps player, I'm familiar with every dice nickname on earth. These clues mostly either avoided them, or (IMHO) completely missed them. For example, a 5 and a 4 are called "centerfield". When someone wants a 5-4 (AKA "9"), they call for so...
