Federalist Papers for me. I didn't even realize it was wrong until you made your post. Request for poll, please. Federalist Papers for me too. Saw that it was numbered and stopped looking for other options. Second the poll request. I started with Federalist Papers but kept thinking. Ended up switch...

This game welcomes Maty Monfort to the J! Archive (though I have a feeling TELEVISION for $300 will probably be the only time she'll ever get mentioned as a J! clue).
It's also Michael Buger's welcome to the J-Canon, as best as I can tell.

Re: Fun with GSN's "Master Minds"

A very familiar face is on the show today. ;) Also, Ryan Chaffee makes his debut. That familiar face certainly made an attempt. it will be fun to look back on this episode some day and fondly reminisce about the time when people on television game shows displayed their uncovered faces.

Re: New old games in the J! Archive

There appears to be a missing media file for the last Season 18 game. Rather than submit 10 correction suggestions about it, I thought I'd post here. Maybe I'm getting the file extension wrong. It should be 2002-01-07_J_04. something . It's got Sofia jumping off a rock wall, so I assumed it would be...

Rep. Guy Reschenthaler (R-PA) has introduced the TRAP Act (Time to Repeal an Archaic Policy Act of 2020), intended to repeal the Logan Act of 1789.
