    Just ignore my other posts. I really had trouble trying to link here from the usual place/places.

  2. VJ says:

    Oh, I almost forgot to post the link to the extra clues. It’s been quite a busy day!

    LINK 9 more clues from the match

    I loved that video game category huge fan of halo games and uncharted. VJ, are any of your family members huge fans of football games for the Xbox or PlayStation? Or perhaps they like racing games?

    • VJ says:

      @Lou, yeah, there are a few video games fans in my family. My son and son-in-law are two of them. idk what games they play these days though. Years and years ago, I used to play Tetris and Q-Bert myself.

      • Lou says:

        Interesting, I love tetris a a little kid myself and also do you remember if this final Jeopardy category was used in a similar game in final where one or two contestants got it right? Also I remember that the answer of Helen Mirren was in a final jeopardy category in celebrities and Laurie Macdougal got it back in 2016.

        • VJ says:

          @Lou, no I don’t remember if this category was ever used for FJ before. But here’s something interesting. 4 years ago on July 11th, I wrote a post about Princess Sikhanyiso, the oldest daughter of the King of Swaziland,, about the song she wrote and sang for her father. What an odd coincidence.

    VJ, could you please tell me what the answer was to the Nicolas Cage question was? I didn’t hear the whole clue or the response. Thanks!

    • VJ says:

      Here it is Rhonda — BY DEGREES ($1000) To Francis Ford Copolla, nephew Nicholas Cage is in the third degree of this 13-letter word from the Latin for “blood”

      What is consanguinity? (Scott got it)

    Did you guys catch what the video game category was? Be curious to know what games they featured. The all-star game coverage overlapped jeopardy for me in my neck of the woods.

    • VJ says:

      Here were the first 4 clues. Kelly got the $200 one and Scott got the rest:

      ($200) Glitches in this “NFL 17” had a kick returner catching the ball at his own 2, stepping back into his own end zone & scoring a TD

      ($400) The Wasteland is the result of nuclear war; exit one of these title shelters & rebuild in the 4th edition

      ($600) This techno thriller novelist died in 2013 but with the SHD agents in “The Division”, he lives on

      ($800) Master Chief & Spartan Locke are your to commance in this “5: Guardians”

      No one got the $1000 clue — it’s at the bottom of the recap between the image and the 2-years ago clue

      • Name says:

        Cool thanks guys. Had to ask about that don’t normally have categories involving video games that’s pretty cool hopefully I can check out a rerun sometime down the line.

    • TR says:

      Halo, Fallout, Uncharted, Madden, and Tom Clancy’s The Division (they wanted Clancy’s name)

    If Scott’s response had been accepted in the $1200 Shaka clue immediately, Kelly would not have won the game as Scott would have had a lock going into FJ! I don’t suppose Scott would be invited back for another show if he tried to make a case that he was blown out of $20K because of that call.

  7. Cyril Morong says:

    “Shaka, When the Walls Fell” is a phrase from a Star Trek episode LINK

    • Richard says:

      I’m glad I’m not the only one who noticed. Makes me wonder who came up with the category names.

      • Cyril Morong says:

        Right. Alex never said why they did that. Were they just looking to see if anyone Star Trek fans were watching? Must be at least one Trek fan working for them
