Andy’s Thoughts:

  • Team Brad has an effective lead of $1,750 over Team Ken and $14,000 or Team Colby. Absolutely anything can happen on Day 2, though!
  • This was a good solid first game of a final, where neither Team Ken nor Team Brad was able to pull out any sort of major advantage. I can see this one coming down to a low-valued clue at the end of Double Jeopardy! tomorrow.

  1. It’s later than usual for the results not to be available; was your broadcast source pre-empted? At least we have the answer. I didn’t know the answer. I thought of Julius Caesar, from my second year Latin studies in high school, but there were no chapters with those titles. I wonder if anyone will get it right.

  2. George Richards | March 4, 2019 at 2:42 pm |

    Very famous book on war. I got it, and from the results just out everybody did.

    • When I read “tactical”, I thought war, and that’s the only book about war I’ve heard of. Not my wheelhouse. I’m kind of surprised this was a FJ! answer in a game for a million.

      • Often you’ll see an easier Final to see if anyone had the chutzpah to go with a big wager.

      • Only other book/treatise on “conducting war” that is well-known historically and good to know for Jeopardy (from a MUCH later era, of course) is Karl von Clausewitz’: “Vom Kriege” (On War)…Ok, I’m bragging a little that I know that…

  3. Michael Giblock | March 4, 2019 at 5:42 pm |

    I’m ready for normal Jeopardy to come back please!

  4. Whichever third team got into the finals knew that it would be up against it with Team Brad and Team Ken. I have been rooting for Team Colby all along (I love all three players), but Colby/Alan/Pam really have to step up their game tomorrow. I suspect that Team Buzzy and Team Austin would have been in exactly the same spot as Team Colby.


  5. Larissa continues to show that she was underrated and was a steal in the draft at number 6.

  6. I’m guessing Ken and Brad will go at it again tomorrow in Double Jeopardy. That’s going to be great. It will be interesting to see their tactics for DD’s if they get them. Team Colby is the one that really needs the DD’s, and will likely have to bet big on them.

    • I’m sure that they will go head to head as they can’t go in the same round tomorrow. They’ll want to save their best player for Double Jeopardy although Matt and Larissa are also top notch players. By discussing their strategy it appeared that they would go with the status quo that they used in their first match ups.

  7. So does it make you old if you knew about pica and elite typewriters, but struggled with the Computer Science clues. Maybe if the show is still around in 40 years, they can run one of the Computer Science clues from today, and get another triple stumper.

    • Lisa Brasch | March 4, 2019 at 9:33 pm |

      Yes, I think it makes us old. I shouted out “elite” and then felt immediately like Methuselah. Maybe next we can teach them how to set your typewriter to 2 1/2 spaces to make your term paper seem longer.

    • Feelin’ old for sure. And there are Gen Xers in their early 40s who are surprised to learn why keys on a computer keyboard are labeled “shift” and “tab,” not realizing that typewriters had physical tabs that could be set to stop the carriage at desired points or key banks that shifted into different positions. I feel old just knowing the difference between a 286 and a 386 CPU chip.
