Re: Friday, November 25, 2011 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOILERS)

We can thank the lockout for ABC burning off Million DOllar Mind Game, on which Brad Rutter will compete on the season finale of tomorrow 11/27 at 4PM EST. Does it count as competing when one has no opponent? On the subject of the sports category, you know it's easy when I run it. (Assuming they gi...

Re: Friday, November 25, 2011 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOILERS)

Got FJ with about 2 seconds left to go. On the show, I wouldn't have had time to write it - but I may still give it to myself in the poll. Go ahead and count it. It's what I call a home hit. I had time to blaze it out with pen but with the show's writing device, no way. I always convince myself I w...

Forget Ann's water bottle. Francis, what did you have for lunch? I'll guess swiss cheese with all the holes you put in your scorecard with the misses. All you had to do was find either of the DDs in the DJ round. Instead Ann found both of them and after the timid $200 in the J! round she took Alex's...

Re: Wednesday, November 23, 2011 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOILERS)

Nice job all around by the players. FJ seemed kind of easy to me. To begin with, Sarah Tone-In was a bit irritating; I knew the answer for the first clue called, but had I been in the studio, I might have hesitated since it wasn't really clear what the category was supposed to be. Every once in awh...

I don't have it handy, but many nights you can find it here when the archive/JBoard doesn't have it yet: http://gskingdom.blogspot.com/

You have to scroll down a bit to get to it and other shows besides J! are listed.

Re: Wednesday, November 23, 2011 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOILERS)

The Cooper category was full of good material that future players should look over again if they didn't know any of the names. It was a good game as each player hit a correct DD and 3000 was the lowest wager. This is not the FJ clue used on tonight's show, but a version of it I wrote about a year ag...

Re: Boardies on the Show - Season 28

The Archivists had been putting in the "official" Sony-run Jeopardy!

Welcome Morgan: 5 Consonants for $1200 - nope, no DD. It was in the 800 box. You understood to hunt for the DD, but the placement got you. Heartstrings seemed simple enough to solve. My question is would you have wagered for the lead? You found no DDs in your games, so I'm curious how you would have...
