Re: Monday, September 10 1984 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Like Leander, I was struck by the gasping and by the crowd noise in general. I wonder if they were coached to be extra enthusiastic and make a big deal out of everything. Some of those reactions (pretty much everything that wasn't applause) sounded piped in to me. There's a woman's nervous titter a...

Re: Reruns to start May 4th

I must have submitted it in a correction suggestion, because I don't have a record of ever sending the word "Selevan" in an email. No correction suggestions. I think it was just discussion on the old board. I remember at one point we had "Seleban", or "Selevan or Seleban", something like that. Poss...

Re: New old games in the J! Archive

Quoting both of you so you're both notified, and since I don't know whom to blame for this: Ron's win is for $8,400, but the heading of his second game says he has won $4,800.

As expected there is a new Alex opening as he explains the S1 rules about ringing in after clue revealed.
When this episode was rerun in 2009, the inclusion of Alex's current-day remarks made it necessary to edit out the interview segment. How about this time?

Re: Reruns to start May 4th

I remember how hard we had to work to get "Selevan". I remember having my suspicions about him when watching the first episode on the J! DVD. Alex said his full name at the start of the interviews, and Frank told him he'd pronounced it right. Thinking no one would need validation on the pronunciati...

The chances of 500-500-500 after five clues have been zero for almost 19 years!

Joe gets the honest dumbass award. :lol: At least it made no difference for anything. The clue stumped me and I could only guess a baseball player I knew died that year in hoping he got appointed to something of note. This is the game! I've mentioned it on this board a couple of times, but I always...

Re: Wednesday, April 8, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

So we're letting contestants omit articles in the middle of titles now? Is this a new rule? I confidently expected a score reversal on Londyn's "What is The Lion, Witch and Wardrobe?" But we came back from the break and no mention was made. After that I knew better than to expect a reversal for Kyl...

I added 4/28/93: http://www.j-archive.com/showgame.php?game_id=6745 I would capitalize Widow Clicquot. I'd never heard of her before. Sounds fascinating.

US PRESIDENTS The only president to serve less than four full years in each of two separate terms Who was FDR? (First term was Mar 4, 1933 to Jan 20, 1937 due to passage of the 20th amendment, and died during his fourth term) My guess was McKinley, thinking that his first term was one day shorter t...

She distinctly remembers sitting there and watching with a jar of Jiffy peanut butter and a spoon. Not only does McGruff date no further back than 1980, but Jiffy peanut butter has never existed!

Re: Fourth Podium Poll for 2/4/2020

I was able to reconstruct my LT from a post in the discussion thread. I said I had $3,200 in the J! round, and since there was $3,800 available, no $200s missed, and only one $600 missed, Dodge City has to be the one I didn't get. (On my reread, I got Dodge City but blanked on Ralph Kramden's name, ...
