Today’s results will go up on this page late afternoon, with full stats early evening. They will be seen in the comments section at the bottom of this page.


A small note: While this isn’t the first time they’ve done this (Louisa May Alcott back in May as an example), it’s always nice to see Jeopardy asking about women authors in a category titled AUTHORS.

Meanwhile, the six novels referred to: Sense and Sensibility, Pride and Prejudice, Mansfield Park, Emma, Northanger Abbey, and Persuasion.

  2. Tim should’ve bet it all and Alison should have won!

    • I was not expecting that to happen!

    • Andy Saunders | December 6, 2016 at 5:18 pm |

      Betting it all, as was on display today, would not have been a good idea for Tim.

      He played it as he should have and was thus rewarded for doing so with his third victory.

  3. Anyway, Anuj should’ve been better than Asim.

  4. Frank Smith | December 6, 2016 at 6:58 pm |

    It still shows the 1-day total for Tim Aten. This is his 3rd game, not his 2nd.

  5. Hey, that Louisa May Alcott game looks familiar!

    Good wagering today. Austen might be a tough pull but it’s good knowledge to have that she wrote just six pretty long books
