I’ve got two very special guest hosts tonight.The Final Wager – December 26, 2014

Brian Hamilton was looking to break our Curse of the 3xers, but he’s locked out heading into Final.

Tonight’s Final Jeopardy! category is:

AFRICAN FLAGS

Brian’s loss tonight makes it 24 straight games without a three-time winner – now second-most in the post-KJ era.

3xer streaks Brian Hamilton

As for our game, these numbers are straightforward; it’s a double-lock. Amy should hold on to second place with a wager of at most 2,000.

Lo and behold, everyone did well!

We’ll see you on Monday.

    See my 12/23 comment for details. In the last 10 games (counting tonight) we have the following result: In 2 cases all three got it right = easy. 6 cases of 1 right + 1 case of 2 right = 7 ok and 1 case of 0 right = hard. So that’s a “final jeopardy degree of difficulty = just right” score of 70%.

    After a 1 day excursion outside at 80% we’re back into the “butter zone” of 40%-70%.

What do you think?
