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.

We’d vote Monday and Tuesday as the easiest clues in this week. But who’s to say? Some may have solved other clues just as fast or faster than those two. There were still no triple solves so we’ll have to transfer all our hopes of seeing that to next week.

The results of the first week of the 2017 Teachers Tournament are in. All the semi-finalists and Wild Card winners are shown in this Quarter-Final highlights video so I’m not gonna repeat them here. There’s also a list of their winning scores on Friday’s recap. Come Monday, there will be no distinction between semi-finalists and Wild Card winners. They all start again at zero. Those who didn’t make it past this week went home with $5,000.

One more week until the Return of Ragavan, our 3x champ
