    this was a very easy final since i watched the lord of the rings movies and the chronicles of narnia. Also Wonderland is by lewis carroll and not cs lewis. Third where did the land of nod come from? Was stephanie thinking of a command and conquer tiberian sun?

      @Lou, the players didn’t get any info about the author until right before their responses were revealed. Mike had Neverland (from Peter Pan – J.M. Barrie). As for the Land of Nod, idk — the only ones I know about are where Cain was sent in the Bible and there’s also a poem by Robert Louis Stevenson called The Land of Nod, about a place a little boy dreams about. Maybe she was thinking of that.

    Mike had the options of covering a double up by a two time champ, risking a toss-up, or blocking a third place winner but risking losing to a two-time champ. By covering the double-up by the two-time champ, he could only lose to Justin iff both he and Stephanie missed and Justin was right. This last scenario seems unlikely. Mike’s only mistake was not betting enough.

    Marilyn, sorry to steal your line but Mike’s wager makes no sense to me. He did not guard against Justin who was in 3rd place. If he had wagered $2799 he would have won the game. Instead it appears he was trying to beat the returning champ, Stephanie, by $200?

    • Marilyn Ahrenhoerster says:

      I think to protect against both Stephanie and Justin each doubling up, Mike should have bet 2800. If he and Stephanie are both right, they will be tied. If Justin is right and Mike is wrong (as it actually happened), they would be tied and we would see our first tiebreaker.

    Seems like a very easy fj to me…but then again I like the narnia series.
