Re: Thursday, May 6, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I don't know what a Bernese Mountain Dog is, but it cost Kalee from playing in final for overthinking a clue. Sad to see the nerves get to the players - I'm sure they have better trivia chops than me. It seemed like Jamie was still nervous for her second game. I'm OK with Steve's surrender bet on DD...

Re: Wednesday, May 5, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Bill double "ou" words with the standard "notice the quotation marks" comment. I'm already giving up on waiting for an explanation of what the category "some letters/syllable" is in quotation marks means, at least at the category reveal. It is rarely explained, and usually after a non-compliant gues...

Re: Tuesday, May 4, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I don't know who Emily reminds me of, but her ability to smile while talking is just uplifting. I'm sorry we won't get to see her again in a TOC, but the new champ is silky smooth and may be able to get over the hump. Bill is a smooth talker. There was one slight delay in confirming a correct clue, ...

LOL, just LOL at Robert Frost making that Overland journey in 1859. He was still alive at John F Kennedy's inauguration. I'm assuming he was thinking of "The Road Not Taken," but yeah. I think the rule of "Always write down SOMETHING" gives broad immunity to criticism of game contestants under the ...

Re: LL89 Jboardlite rundle is going Rogue for one season

You've got a space at the end of the password section. "alextrebek" vs "alextrebek ". Thanks for the help desk support ;) . They usually ask me if my television is plugged in:lol:.

Re: Learned League 88 - Feb/Mar '21

Will the "normal" private rundles be back? (Apologies if there actually is someone that can give an informed answer. I am not aware of any such titled position or gatekeeper.) Was there ever a "normal" private rundle? I don't think there is a critical mass of players at each level to have five, or ...

I tried to register with that rundle name and password but it said it was invalid. It should work. Got 5 and counting so this is good timing. I did mean to add 89 to it, but this is less typing :).

Re: Friday, April 30, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I'm curious Mark. Do you think adding the year 1905 would have helped you at all? 1900 being Oz is one of the big book-year Pavlovs. It would have gotten me away from C.S. Lewis. The year might have helped me, but I can't be sure because none of the "alphabet-y" verbage takes me to Oz. I went with ...

Does anyone know offhand it Emily's 9K DD is the largest DD bet of the season? Or at least the guest hosts? I can't remember ANY other bets this large since James H ended his run.

Was this the record largest combined total for three contestants heading into FJ? 53,000 is nothing to sneeze at. Emily went from $9600 to $36,600 with just two responses! This one I knew for sure without even having to get into the Holzhauer games: https://www.j-archive.com/showgame.php?game_id=92...

I'm OK with Leah's wager but if she chose not to go all in, she should have strongly considered 6202. We've seen suicide wagers from Dana's position more than once. Why not $6201? Either way, I agree she should have considered something in that range, and maybe she did. But if she goes that way, sh...

I generally like to wait for "breaking" news to dissipate so I can relax the filter .
