Re: Wednesday, February 3, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I remembered this FJ (from reading, not watching), but said Helios, even with trepidation from "Greco-Roman."

Re: Tuesday, February 2, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I did give myself credit for "boxing ring" instead of "fight site" because I felt it fit the clue and category. I would not accept that, as the would-be rhyming syllables are stressed differently. J! once used "marmot" as a correct response in the category RHYME-BOT (as in, all correct responses wi...

Re: Monday, February 1, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Anthony Trifilio's run spanned just over 12 months: he won a game near the end of February 2002, lost the next, disputed his FJ, and was brought back in early March 2003, winning a second time. After choosing Oscar Madison over Felix Unger by dumb luck, I should have pressed that luck on the next c...

(Now the question becomes, Was there a question mark, or not? ;) )
As it happens, I never closed the tab with the video paused at Marvin's FJ reveal, so I happened to go back without any extra trouble and see that there was no question mark!

Re: Missing Final Jeopardy! for improper phrasing

Reading this thread made me remember that I had come across a game in which (per the archive) a contestant gave a FJ! response without the phrasing... not only was it accepted as correct, that acceptance made that contestant the winner. And the second-place contestant who would have won does not ap...

Eh, the French pronounce "saint" in a way that sounds like "san"; you could probably get away with it.

Re: Thursday, January 28, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I dunno, my assumption is that if there were a category PRESIDENTIAL MIDDLE NAMES and one clue said "Quincy," you would still get dinged for responding, "Who is John Adams?" I don't think the presence of "Wells" in the clue can make "Invisible Man" acceptable.

Re: Thursday, January 28, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Interestingly, the J! site's ToC Tracker now has a "Current Tournament of Champions List" with the 15 exclusively Alex-era champs, and an "Eligible for Next Tournament of Champions" list with Brian and Zach. And underneath that list it says, "All 4-time and over winning players starting from 01/05/...

Re: Thursday, January 28, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Does that mean Zach was in a Joshua Brakhage situation, where winning or losing this game determined not whether he'd be in a ToC, but which one he'd be in? No, I think if he lost he was out of both. He was below VVV, so would have been frozen out of the Alex-era one, and because his prior wins WER...

Re: Wednesday, January 27, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I got Custer, my dad got Hickok. He thought Custer was a ridiculous guess because of the buckskin hint, but long hair and a violent end in Montana couldn't have been anyone else in my mind. Unfortunately, buckskin and long hair made me assume the other guy had to be native.

Name a world capital that starts with Amste.
Again, because world capitals always share part of a name with the river they're by, right?
Hey, you're the one who came in here first saying what "Amstel" sounds like.

I didn't say make up a world capital name by that template, I said name a capital. The clue didn't give a template though. It just said "Amstel blah blah blah blah". If you've NHO Amstel, it very well could be anywhere. It didn't say "Amstel blah blah blah" even figuratively. It's a $200 clue; if y...
