Re: Friday, April 17, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Yesterday Mark posted:
After getting the Tuesday FJ! clue correct I told myself I was guaranteed at least 70% for the tourney. That didn't mean I wanted to finish there. Grrr!
This is what happened to me. I got 6 right, then miss-hit-miss-miss to finish at 7/10.

Congrats to Nibir.

I guess the key here was knowing that Prospero was a deposed Duke. That's a deep cut, congrats to anyone who pulls it.

Fun fact: The words Caliban, Caribbean, and cannibal are all etymologically related, stemming from legends of a fierce tribe said to inhabit the area.

Lots of negbait available on today's Final.... Madison, Lincoln, Jefferson City....
That isn't negbait, because those cities are named for the presidents themselves. You guess those, you're just guessing wrong.

http://www.j-archive.com/showgame.php?game_id=6594 And Monday, September 11, 1995 is complete, Barbara Robson vs, Jack Honig vs. Lynn Hooker. Quite a bit of difficulty getting this one finished as the sound on the video was low, and the speakers at work were awful. But it's done now, and I've tidied...

Re: Fun with GSN's "Master Minds"

Agreed that this version is more fun to watch. (I watched the YouTube preview.) I tensed up a little watching Ken and Muffy shake hands at the end there. February seems so long ago, doesn't it? ETA: More prescription drug questions please. (Looks like today's broadcast ep had one too.) And Charles, ...

I have a little time here at work, so I've started this game, but any other archivist can take the following games if they want. I've still got a pretty healthy queue at home.

Good to see you back FJguy. I was a little worried yesterday.

Felicity is catching the academic clues in FJ that others are missing. That bodes well for her. I matched Jeff, but I could tell I was overlooking something.

Re: 2020 Current Events Study Guide

Outside of the Jeopardy canon, but worth knowing about, children's author Tomie dePaola has passed away at the age of 85. His most famous creation is probably Strega Nona, "a kindly 'grandma witch,'...who helps her fellow Calabrian townspeople with magic and an eternally full pasta pot." https://www...

Monya De is another of those who auditioned at Trivia Nationals in August. So far, I think none have won from this cohort (please correct me).
Aha. That's why the name was familiar. Thanks. She has quite a résumé.

I unfortunately reasoned the reverse way, thinking that Truman was probably the negbait since TV was pretty well established in households by the late forties. I knew the first broadcast station had been in operation since even before FDR's first election, and that sporting events and news programs...

The chain is actually called "General Nutrition Center" while Matt said "Nutritional." I was surprised they didn't change his score. The clue has "Centers" and Wikipedia agrees. I heard "Nutrition" by Matt and the CC agrees for how I archived it. We'll see if another post wants to break the tie. It...

Re: New old games in the J! Archive

Note to self: Don't go in and do correction suggestions while you still have the "Edit game" window open in another tab. Because one way or the other, you're gonna lose some work, dummy.

My thanks to whomever was hot on the ball with those typos in the current game, though.
