More information about Final Jeopardy:

Hundred Acre Wood is the main setting of A. A. Milne’s “Winnie-the-Pooh” series of books. The area of Ashdown Forest, in real life, is actually known as “Five Hundred Acre Wood”; Milne’s son Christopher Robin would often play in the area.

For those playing along at home, with the caveat that I haven’t watched the episode yet when writing this description, I’m pretty sure that a response of “100 Acre Wood” also appears to be acceptable, at least to me.

  1. But what about a response of “Hundred Acre Woods” in FJ? I’m guessing that the plural could be ruled as incorrect.

  2. Gutsy bet by David. But if you are right you might as well make (almost) the most of it.
    Again a new champ, but David will not only have won today’s game. He will string a few together, that’s my general prediction for next week.

    Have a nice weekend everybody!

  3. The dreaded “midsummer’s night” switcheroo strikes again…Alex was ready!
