    I wish they would explain contestant’s occupation when they have a unique one. Like yesterday, what the heck is an “Intensive English” teacher.

    • Bennett says:

      Meaning those teachers typically work with English learners. And/or fluent individuals who truly struggle with reading and writing.

    I think “Kiting” would be an acceptable answer for check Forgery.

      Hi Anne, that really wasn’t a great clue. According to, there are 4 types of check fraud (forgery, paperhanging, kiting, counterfeiting & alteration). Check fraud was the response Kylie gave and I think that should have been accepted. I don’t think they gave enough info to pinpoint the actual charge. Here’s the clue with a link to a bit about the incident on the NYT.

      CRIMINAL CHOICES ($1000) Want it in 20s? In 2008 a Texas man was charged with this fraudulent act after trying to cash a check for $360 billion

    well this was a bad game but still justin will be in the tournament of champions since he won 4 games. still though despite a few bad rounds, justin was wise not to bet everything dont you agree vj? When fred played his 4 game run back in january of this year he won 65000 what was the difference in the total win between fred and justin

    Gunpowder, eh? Well, that blew up my prediction. lol. (as a play on words, that’s almost, but not quite. as bad as those Almost Before & After clues!)

    LINK I put that category up plus 8 more clues

      What an atrocious category that was, I don’t know why Asim kept choosing it.

      • jacob ska says:

        Glad I’m not the only one who thought that category was horrible.

        Well the story behind the porcelain was interesting to me. After 5 years of supervising and working with this alchemist, von Tschirnhaus “suddenly” drops dead right after the goal is achieved. Hmmm. And only 57 years old. Böttger only made it to age 37 himself.

    Justin should’ve won this game because it looked like he was going to win.
