Poll Results:
Who would win the following matchup?

It’s been a few years, at least from what I can remember, when the Final Jeopardy category has been tied into the game boards like this!

Jeopardy! round categories: THESE AREN’T BIBLE BOOKS; DUDE-ERONOMY; JOB, NOT JOB; FIRST, QUEENS; ADAPTATIONS 5; SYNONYMS 1 & 2

Double Jeopardy! round categories: THESE ARE BIBLE BOOKS; I KINGS; EXODUS; SONG OF SOLOMON; REVELATION; and L”UKE”.

Meanwhile, with regards to Final Jeopardy: the 1796 case was Ware v. Hilton. It allowed British creditors to recover debts previously owing to them by American citizens, as per the 1783 Treaty of Paris (in spite of a Virginia law nullifying those debts). John Marshall’s arguments for states rights in this case greatly enhanced his reputation, and he became Chief Justice himself in 1801.

Finally: With Ellen at the 3-win mark, she’s now onto the ToC Tracker (of course, in this instance, she’s on Page 2 at the moment.)

    I’m looking for the answer to one of the unanswered questions in the category Job, Not Job. I was hoping to find a definition, but I cannot remember the word. If you could help with this – I would appreciate it. The episode I am referring to aired on 7-19-2016.

      $600: We certainly appreciate a good scrivener, one of these (What is a writer? — “what is a secretary” accepted)

      $800: Q&A is what quiz shows serve up; QA usually stands for this job of making sure the product is up to snuff (What is quality assurance?)

      $1000: It’s the job title of Chicago City Council’s 47th ward rep (What is alderman?)

      (The $200 and $400 clues were unseen. They’ll probably find themselves in a LEFTOVERS or POTPOURRI category at some point.)
