Re: Wednesday, March 15, 2017 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

First - Great job Champ! I showed my wife your profile pic, and then realized- you had to be careful to use your first day shirt in the profile pic or you would have messed up! Not that I'd have first-hand knowledge of this, but my second-hand knowledge tells me that unless you do something histori...

Re: Tuesday, March 14, 2017 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

So how did everyone but me know to go to Jakarta? This clue just seemed insanely wide open with nothing to narrow it down. As a trivia non-expert, I went directly to Indonesia because I knew from a fellow softball player that it was the fourth largest nation that nobody has ever heard of (and it st...

Re: Monday, March 13, 2017 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

Jessica is a war horse. It does seem like she coasted a little early, but that could be just losing the buzzer. She knows some stuff! Terrible game for me, 4 digit Coryat. I think they were on the hard side (agree with Morbeedo on the 'taikun' clue, maybe a million and one years for me). But I also ...

Re: Friday, March 10, 2017 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

I advise you not to expect an on-air retraction and commendation. I'm still bitter over my letter to DC comics as a 9 year old when they didn't acknowledge they made a mistake in a Superman comic book. 55 years of suffering, alas! You are 64 and you pole vault? Bravo!!!! Yeah, but it's like the old...

Re: Friday, March 10, 2017 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

Thank you, Mark. OK, so, I did not imagine it. Now, my next question, is anybody here familiar with the word 'recticle', or did somebody on the show simply make a typing error? I can't find any evidence that 'recticle' is a word, but my resources are not infallible. My aim here is not to hold the J...

Re: FJs for the 3/6/17 week

:( :mrgreen: :( :( :mrgreen: Woo-hoo - after 36 votes I'm the only neg on Vatican City. Thank you J! writers for the "citizen" negbait (not really blaming them, I just hate Wahhabism). It didn't occur to me it could be a real statistic so I looked for the angle from the get-go. I gave up on Antarcti...

Anyone else find the Jay Cutler clue...timely?
YES!

We should see a Tony Romo clue soon. Brock Ostweiler, not so much.

Annie's wager...I guess she just wanted more money. I guess she just didn't know much about FJ wagering strategy from the get go. I wonder if/when she found out she threw away close to $4,000 in her first game. I kind of disagree she threw away money. She had a lock and wasn't playing with house mo...

Re: The Official TPH Education Thread (POTENTIAL GAME DAY SPOILERS)

Happy Birthday TPH! May all your dreams come true. Especially if you dream of us JBoarders becoming Jeopardy! champions. +1 Brian make it +2. I always chuckle when I click this thread and see Alietr's first post "I doubt if it will catch on..." You got your OWN TPH thread, man! That and a nickel wi...

Re: Thursday, March 9, 2017 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

Hot take: Saudi Arabia wasn't that bad a guess if you focused on "citizenry." It's not unreasonable to think Saudi women might not be full citizens. Rachel's answer doesn't look that bad now. Too bad. We had tornado weather and I missed most of DJ due to signal loss. I also hemmed and hawed about S...

Re: Wednesday, March 8, 2017 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

I Tom'd the clue to be a well known serious author whose grandkids found an old manuscript and pimped it for what they could get, sort of like Harper Lee or Margaret Mitchell. At least one other poster has as well (I'd quote it but still can't use this forum well). I settled on a bad guess of Pearl...

Re: Tuesday, March 7, 2017 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

I'm kinda' disappointed in Alex not expanding on why they reconvened in 1789. Seems like he usually does with that kind of clue. Dates without any context aren't all that interesting. Could've at least mentioned the French Revolution. Good observation. I've been appreciative of the FJ clues recentl...

I've been a Jeopardy! fan for many years, but just recently found this forum. As everyone knows, Alex is fastidious about correct pronunciation, whether in English or a foreign language. Hence my surprise last night when he incorrectly used the Spanish rather than the Portuguese pronunciation of 'J...
