Season 36 Final Jeopardy Contest

Recommended Posts


Everyone has reported in; thank you all very much. This week's winners -- yes, there are two again -- are @GrannySmith and @j5cochran, both of whom dared to be different this week. I like those who do not follow the crowd. Vive la différence! And congratulations you two. Thanks for playing. See you next week. Good luck everyone.

I'm so honored to be here today, and eternally grateful to be one of this week's recipients of this award. To even be considered for a Final Jeopardy Contest Weekly Award is an honor and a privilege, so my greatest thanks to Saber5055 for this award.  And to share this award with GrannySmith makes it even more specialler. 

So enjoy the rest of this banquet, and don't forget to tip the wait staff!

I won't be able to report my scores until March 30. I'm fine; I just won't be able to access my computer. So don't worry when you don't hear from me and be careful out there, everyone!

I know you are a Monday poster Your Majesty, so figured you posted from work. A couple other players are the same, so I hope everyone is doing okay. I'll keep your score line open until you can fill it in. Not a problem!

Week 28: three of five with the asterisk. I really need to work on my Asian geography - I guessed Hong Kong for the "one country, two systems" and had no clue at all on the country formerly in the House of Representatives!

Tah DAH! Announcing the Dual Winners of Week 28 ... @lb60 and @M. Darcy. This co-award celebrates forward and backward continuums. Okay, so maybe continuum isn't the correct word but I like it so I'm using it. That, plus I appreciated their consecutive three-week scores of 4-3-2 and 2-3-4. Mirror continuums worthy of The Weekly FJ Contest Co-Award.

Congratulations to both of you! Maybe you continue your continuums in Week 29.
