If you missed any of the games, click on the date for the recap with the Daily Doubles and a triple stumper or two. More clues from this week’s games are on Fikkle Fame’s archive.

Monday’s clue produced the most correct responses but we didn’t see any triple solves this week. Tuesday’s clue was the toughest for me, but not for one of the players. It was just not on my “radar,” one of the wrong responses. Thursday and Friday were both triple stumpers. We wondered if Nilanka saw the 12/15/2016 match. It had the most recent clue on the topic: “‘Therese Raquin’ is a tale of murder by this man who some believe was later murdered over his Dreyfus Affair letter.” However, Jeopardy! has had many clues with the letter’s title right in the clue and as a response.
