*cue ''Jeopardy'' theme*   That's right all, I'm going to be starting an online version of Jeopardy, to be played right here at Nightly dot net.   And this is the signup thread.   If you'd be interest

Not sure if Prim, Wicket, and all the other SJ regulars still drop in here at Nightly at all. I was watching Jeopardy with Alex tonight, and there was a commercial for a new Sports Jeopardy program t

Oh we are gonna sue their candy asses for this one!

Here is a new version of the stats program. In it, I have added three new records ...

Most Final Jeopardy Wagers of 1 or 0 Points

Most Times Leading Into Final Jeopardy Without a Win

Most Runaway Leads Heading Into Final Jeopardy

 

Here is what those records look like for SJ...

That tells me the Finals need to be more difficult. Then again, we should really be curtailing its time limit - on the real show, plenty of contestant run out of time, and obviously can't research.

What I found interesting was that the only times a player had a lead going into FJ and did not win (not only for SJ, but for all Js) was when the leading player had a runaway lead, wagered enough so someone else could win, and did not come up with the correct response.

Here is a new version of the stats program with an updated history file. The new program must be run with the new version of the history file (it won't work with the older history files). This new version also prints box scores for each game. For example, the box score from SJ 30 looks like ...

Clues Correct Streaks Of At Least 10

Nomaa Jedi Piarra : 13

 

I also learned some interesting things by going through the box scores. For instance, in all the 38 Jeopardy games, only 6 games have had 100% of all clues answered by contestants. Those were SJ 04 - SJ 06, SJ 17, SJ 19, and SJ 20.

 

EDIT : Here is a new version which adds a new feature to the printing of box scores...career running averages. Each time a box score is printed, it will show the points average, clues correct average, clues correct percentage, and power points average at the point in time when the game was finished (much like a pitcher's ERA or hitter's batting average is shown in a box score). Above is a sample from SJ 30.

Here is version 1.5.6 of the stats program. It has everything from the previous version plus some new game records that get printed out in the same file as the box scores. I also moved some records from the normal records file to the game records file (such as most guest appearances in a game, longest game by days, shortest game by days, etc).

 

For a sample of what it looks like check out this entry in my blog...

SJ Game Stats

 

EDIT : I have added Lowest Clues Correct Percentage in a Game, and average number of guest appearances, posts, and days per game.

 

Here is the updated version 1.5.7...

As it states in my signature, the 40th edition of Sports Jeopardy is scheduled to kick off @ 5 PM ET today! Although others can attend, the game itself, in the interest of fairness, is only open to those people who have never won one before. Good luck - see you there!

Now taking names to be co-host for games 42 and 43.

Darth Wicket has been co-hosting well (see his blog for all-time stats), and he's welcome too, but if someone else wants to also, state here.

Also, if anyone wants to host a game (not with me), they'll likely have to wait until # 44, but are welcome to do so.
