Re: The 2012 online test for adults

Yes, I think $104 is what they quoted me when I booked the room. Close enough. I recall the breakfast buffet costing about $18 a piece when I got the bill, before giving them the tickets. Not the greatest breakfast actually, but if you're getting it for free, it's perfectly fine.

FJ gave me no problem.
Dave made it into the semis in the last ToC on a wild card with $4,999. I don't know why it's impossible for Kara to do the same, with slightly more.

Re: Thursday, November 3, 2011 TOC Game Recap & Disc(SPOILER

Never even came close on FJ. I thought that it was maybe a European country and one of its former colonies, but I was thinking of islands much further away from Europe. I honestly didn't know that Cyprus has a Mt. Olympus. Very tough clue, good on Kara for nailing it. Kara was epic. I really hope sh...

Re: The 2012 online test for adults

Yeah it's the same hotel, new name. You can use Hilton points to pay for the room, but I think you won't get the Jeopardy rate, and you don't get the free breakfast tickets. A couple people from my taping group used points.
Good luck to everyone who takes the test. :)

Re: Wednesday, November 2, 2011 TOC Game Recap & Disc(SPOILE

Um yes, I know they wanted the airport code, Xx. I was asking how the question was phrased. I thought they mentioned the largest city but wasn't sure- trying to think of why they would all clam on that one. I guess they just couldn't be sure that the code was that simple. Airport codes can be pretty...

Re: Wednesday, November 2, 2011 TOC Game Recap & Disc(SPOILE

In the Sydney clue, did they ask for the largest city or the largest airport? I can't recall and the archive's not updated yet. Pretty straightforward FJ as long as you didn't get led astray by Oslo. I felt pretty sure it was Riga and stayed with that. Would be interesting to see at the end of the w...

Most instant of instagets. Swiss + mountain = Heidi, every time. Swiss Family Robinson is just...Swiss. No mountains. More water. :)
Seemed like really easy boards Tuesday but I'm not complaining. An easy one is like a breather right before watching the ToC.

Re: Monday, October 31, 2011 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOILE

Well played by Evan. Maximizing his DDs, and with a good personality too.

I'm a little surprised that people still use the Venusian/Martian thing openly. It's a bit sexist.

The weekly Howdies etc are usually updated on Mondays, so maybe the minisite won't go up until Monday as well. The News item on the site can of course be found here: http://www.jeopardy.com/news/tournamentofchamps28.php

Congrats again, Bigbor! That was a great game for you and Ryan both.

FJ was pretty straightforward, I thought. Enjoyed the boards overall. To my nonexistent shame, the whole Dreamboats category was cake.

unless i'm misremembering, maggie told us that the tue aug 30 tape date (when this week's shows were all filmed) was the end of the ToC cycle, so this episode closes the book on the 2011 ToC field. lloyd can't qualify for it, although if he keeps winning he can make it into the next ToC (whenever t...

Re: Wednesday, October 12, 2011 Game Recap & Disc (SPOILERS)

I think if you're into art, the category wasn't an easy precall. I can think of several state capitals with notable art connections. Boston was the first place that came to mind when I saw the category.
