    There is a chance I would have also got the $2000 clue in the "S" Words category if my wife hadn't blurted out the correct response immediately - but probably not, as I was drawing a blank initially.

    Same as House P.

    9/26
    Friends $600
    Mountain World $1600
    Writing Implements DD $2000

    Keep in mind that Final Jeopardy (Magazines, Caroline Astor, 400 guests) was also a triple stumper. I didn't get it either.

    A note on Elliott Gould: I suspect that the contestants don't get as good a look at these images as we do at home. Remember the contestant last week who misidentified Peyton Manning as Tom Brady? She later wrote:

    My eyes were on the clue board for part of the category, not the video monitor to the side. I got the $1000 clue right without a visual aid but my guess for $600 was absurd now that I know that a photo of Peyton Manning was shown. I only guessed Tom Brady because his old teammate Wes Welker was in the written clue.

    I am still one day behind. On the 9/27 episode there were three opportunities in the first round and a whopping eight in the second.
    I blame my bivalent Covid booster that I just got yesterday for the fact that I wasn't able to capitalize on very many of them. I knew everybody in the jazz category stone cold, but the brain fog caused me to not come up with the answers on time.
    I ended up with $4000 total. I could very easily have had $3600 more in the jazz category alone had I been on my toes.

    What is 82-50?

    I haven't watched Jeopardy in a long while, but I did get the Final category once when Ken Jennings + the other 2 missed it.

    Not a great day for me. I can't believe I missed the chess question. It took me took long to figure out the 8th letter in the alphabet. I am pretty sure that near every pre-schooler in the country could have beat me to it!

    The chess question I didn't even have to think about. My eldest son was a chess afficionado and played on the high school team and in regional tournaments for a few years.

    Yeah, the wording of the clue had me focusing on the home itself, and led me to types of magazines (e.g. Better Homes & Gardens, Southern Living, etc.) that focus on properties. I didn't think to focus on the wealth of the person herself as the key information.

    I also thought the clue was poorly worded, but for a different reason.

    A now annual issue of this magazine was inspired by the high-society parties of Caroline Astor, whose ballroom fit about 400 people
    Iím looking for a magazine that existed back then, and based on their responses, so were the contestants.

    I tried this for the first time tonight but wasnít fully paying attention. I got the $2,000 counties clue and thatís it. I briefly considered the final jeopardy answer but guessed something else. Not my best work.

    Thanks for suggesting this!

    I would have just doubled my score from $5400 to $10800, but sure, I'll take the fictional $7700 instead for a total of $13100.

    Nice work, brevity.

    The contestants put a lot of money on the table on 9/28, with 7 triple stumpers in round one and 8 in round two, plus final.

    Sadly, I came away with a paltry $3600.

    Still, I enjoyed playing.

    I ended up right behind Brevity with $4800 in the first two rounds (Rock Stars $400 & $800, Cliff Notes $1600, and Naturalist $2000).

    Based on the rules we are playing by, I also got the Final Jeopardy clue correct for a total of $12500.

    However, I didnít come up with the correct FJ response until the last second, so I wouldnít have had time to scribble the complete answer if I had actually been on the show.

    The rule giveth, and the rule taketh away. The most anyone bid in this Final was $1, so my total is $2401 instead of $4800.

    9/29 - $4801
    US Counties $2000
    Dawn to Dusk $1600*
    Price on My Head $1200
    Final - $1 (figures that the only triple stumper final Iíve gotten right had a $1 max bet)

    *I also got the $1200 in this category, which was originally a triple stumper, and no one got the answer the show was looking for, but after the fact the judges ruled that the alternative answer one of the contestants gave was acceptable, so I think that no longer counts for me.

    9/30 - $6200
    Sandwiches $600
    IMDb Page $800, $1200, $1600
    First & Last Consonant $2000

    Weekly Total: $29,001

    I had a brutal go on 9/29, scoring only one $600 question.

    That was it. If not for entertainment knowledge, I'd have no knowledge at all.

    Just watched Friday's episode. Didn't know any of the IMDB questions, but got one of only two chances in the first round, and luckily recognized the $2000 vegetable in the second round.
    Final take was thus $2600.

    Slim pickings tonight, with only four available in the first round and three in the second. No daily doubles available and no way to score on final.
    Got two in the first round, $600 and $800, and missed one of the easiest triple stumpers of all time, and it was a thousand dollar question, because of a brain fart. I suspect anybody who is still playing will get it.
