*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!

Actually, this bit [of detail] came by sheer luck. I place the scores and players in order from least to greatest. However, I'm sure there are times I fail to do so, forgetting, or just not bothering to, partially because the game was over at that point. So, here I just didn't update the scores the way I as host sees it. An look how it worked out for this milestone rendering. Looks like I pulled a Homer.

I tracked down who got the 1,000th SJ clue correct and the 2,000 SJ clue correct...

 

In SJ 017, Darth Irish recorded the 1,000th SJ clue correct with this post...

Later in SJ 034, I recorded the 2,000th SJ clue correct with this post..

http://forums.nightly.net/index.php?s=&amp...t&p=1449605

 

Who will record number 3,000?? Currently, there have been 2529 clues correct in the first 43 SJs, so number 3000 is projected to occur in SJ 052.

Just for the heck of it, I also decided to track down where the 100th, 200th, and 300th SJ clue incorrects were.

 

The 100th SJ clue incorrect was posted by UK Legend Killa in SJ 014.

Currently, there have been 389 clues incorrect in the first 43 SJs, so that 400th one is right around the corner! :D

Here are some other DD facts...

 

In SJ 002 Round 1, Pharoah JZA got the first True Daily Double correct. Later, in SJ 006 Round 2, Otanku got the first True Daily Double correct in the 2nd round.

 

Out of 125 DD attempts, 54 of them have been True DD attempts (43.20%)

 

Overall contestants are 103 for 125 on DDs (82.40%) ... being 43 for 54 on True DD attempts (79.63%) and being 60 for 71 (84.51%) on non True DD attempts. Could it be the extra pressure? :D

 

Here are the overall DD standings including SJ 43...BTW, congrats to NJP. With his DD correct in SJ 43, he moved past DI for 1st on the all time list.

 

Nomaa Jedi Piarra       21/26

Darth Irish 20/22

Darth Wicket 19/24

Primbud 8/8

Pharoah JZA 7/8

Austin 7/10

Lucas1138 6/10

bonnie13 5/6

Ms. Spam 2/2

Otanku 2/2

Pat Bowen 2/3

Darth Lohr 1/1

Rock 1/1

TravlerSolo 1/1

UK Legend Killa 1/1

Pretty good percentages there - must make them harder. Actually, some feel the Final is and should be the most difficult clue; however, there's a school of thought (not literally, I don't think) that says a DD should be AS difficult as the Final - b/c it's only for that one person who locates in.

I agree the DDs should be made more difficult.

 

Building on the percentage of games won stat...here is (if my calculations are correct)...

 

Percentage of Games Placing At Least 3rd (minimum 3 games played):

bonnie13 93.33

Darth Wicket 90.91

Primbud 83.33

Darth Lohr 75.00

Nomaa Jedi Piarra 73.91

Darth Irish 62.07

Pat Bowen 50.00

UK Legend Killa 44.44

Pharoah JZA 39.13

Lucas1138 38.46

Ms. Spam 25.00

Otanku 25.00

Austin 16.67

Following up on the true DD stats, here are how contestants did when wagering the maximum amount for FJ (note: to qualify one must have a score greater than zero before FJ and wager that amount)...

 

Maximum Wager Final Jeopardy:

Darth Irish : 16/24

Austin : 7/15

Darth Wicket : 4/4

Pharoah JZA : 4/15

Darth Lohr : 2/2

Nomaa Jedi Piarra : 2/5

Pat Bowen : 1/1

Decoy Octopus : 1/1

Primbud : 1/1

Axmel Foley : 1/1

Otanku : 1/2

Lucas1138 : 1/4

Ms. Spam : 1/5

insomniac : 0/1

Stallion : 0/1

CF : 0/1

TravlerSolo : 0/1

Rock : 0/1

 

For the percentages:

All FJ            : 90/206 (43.69%)

Max Wager FJ : 42/85 (49.41%)

Non Max Wager FJ : 48/121 (39.67%)

 

It seems people have done better when wagering the maximum...could it be the extra adrenaline? :p The non max wager also takes into account those with scores of 0 or less...or people who just disappeared FJ time, so that could explain it.

 

There have only been 4 SJs where nobody has wagered the max (SJ 003, SJ 009, SJ 034, SJ 041).

 

The most contestants wagering the max in one SJ is 4, which happened in 6 SJs (SJ 004, SJ 007, SJ 014, SJ 015, SJ 026, SJ 033).
