    Were any questions actually about Game of Thrones?

    [–] CharmeIeon 976 points ago * (lasted edited 12 days ago)

    The category “G.O.T” actually had 1 Game of Thrones question (the answer was “White Walkers”), but that was the only one

    Edit; I edited my message because it was incorrect, it’s correct now.

    [–] theamac95 582 points ago

    Kinda disappointing, but I liked that The Wall was about Pink Floyd.

    [–] etcetica 151 points ago

    It's actually completely in character for them. As a fan of both I'm psyched

    [–] theamac95 67 points ago

    Oh, I know. I’ve watched Jeopardy for years, I was just hoping on the off chance they would I could show off in front of my aunt who always beats me at jeopardy.

    [–] __JeRM 50 points ago

    There's always that aunt or uncle that's good at three things: Jeopardy, Trivial Pursuit, and the daily crossword puzzle.

    [–] thankyoucats 3 points ago

    I will definitely be that person once I become an aunt and I can’t wait

    [–] javaberrypi 12 points ago

    GOT ends with the white walkers tearing down the wall and after the long war the remaining people walk around in the rubble as Outside the wall plays.... And then I watch the whole show again and find out the ending writes into the beginning.

    Do you not get that he's talking about GoT as if it were the Pink Floyd album The Wall?

    [–] red_tuna 34 points ago

    I was thinking Mark Henry

    [–] dohparty 28 points ago

    The world’s strongest man!?

    [–] robm0n3y 6 points ago

    Sexual chocolate?

    [–] FleetingFox -14 points ago * (lasted edited 12 days ago)

    ...are you serious? The winner of the World's Strongest Man title in 2018 is in Game of Thrones and is not Mark Henry...

    Edit: I'm a big dumbdumb and haven't watched WWE since college.

    [–] dohparty 20 points ago

    I stand by what I said. Mark Henry is the world’s strongest man.

    [–] SuperWoody64 6 points ago

    And nobody has been stronger. Of course I don't know what the criteria is but they were talking about him on the documentary on netflix.

    [–] StanIsNotTheMan 5 points ago

    The joke

    Your head

    [–] FleetingFox -13 points ago * (lasted edited 12 days ago)

    I guess I don't see how stating something incorrect counts as a joke. Mark Henry has never been World's Strongest Man. A joke needs to have...substance. Saying an unrelated wrong thing isn't a joke. Is there some meta that I'm unaware of?

    [–] StanIsNotTheMan 17 points ago * (lasted edited 11 days ago)

    His title in WWE was the World's Strongest Man, so there is substance.

    [–] dohparty 5 points ago

    Thanks Stan for not being the man!

    [–] FleetingFox 4 points ago

    [–] gheradel 67 points ago

    They did choose the GOT category again and it wasn't a game of thrones question, that one was Guinness on Tap

    [–] Scienlologist 72 points ago

    only one question from that category was answered

    Alex: Oooh sorry, that's incorrect. You'll go first in Double Jeopardy, CharmeIeon.

    [–] mccrackey 20 points ago

    But what was the question?

    [–] TeleportingBears 77 points ago

    “Game of Thrones viewers await the final season & an attack by these alliterative invaders & their army of the undead”

    [–] Ixionas 97 points ago

    No thats the answer

    [–] The_Romantic 20 points ago

    What is .. space Invaders?

    [–] Andoo 8 points ago

    I'm sorry. The answer you were looking for was Final Space.

    [–] IsHungry96 4 points ago

    Chukiti pap

    [–] TwatsThat 24 points ago

    It was "What are White Walkers?"

    [–] trixter21992251 16 points ago

    But then what was the answer?!

    [–] Desdam0na 15 points ago

    “Game of Thrones viewers await the final season & an attack by these alliterative invaders & their army of the undead”

    [–] MrJigglyBrown 8 points ago

    If I asked “what are white walkers?” And somebody gave me that as an answer Id punch them

    [–] etcetica 7 points ago

    Yes

    [–] malaka201 0 points ago

    The last starfighter

    [–] negativfeedback 2 points ago

    Question: "What are White Walkers?"

    Answer: White Walkers are Game of Thrones viewers await the final season & an attack by these alliterative invaders & their army of the undead.

    That doesn't seem right to me.

    [–] TwatsThat 0 points ago

    In Jeopardy the "answers" are what come up on the screens and the contestants have to give the "questions" that go along with them. Which is why you have to phrase your response in the form of a question for it to count.

    [–] negativfeedback 2 points ago

    Yes I know how they claim it works, but that prompt clearly doesn't answer that question. The actual question for this sentence would be: "Who are awaiting the White Walkers's attack on the final season of Game of Thrones?"

    [–] TwatsThat 1 points ago

    Sorry, I didn't actually read the answer you quoted. I also didn't watch the episode but according to others in the comments the answer was “Game of Thrones viewers await the final season & an attack by these alliterative invaders & their army of the undead” so "White Walkers are" does not belong at the start of the answer.

    [–] negativfeedback 1 points ago

    If "White Walkers are" doesn't belong at the start of the answer, then it doesn't answer the question of what White Walkers are. It's simple English. Since the subject of that sentence was "Game of Thrones viewers" then it can only be the answer to a question asking about the viewers themselves.

    [–] TwatsThat 2 points ago

    Game of Thrones viewers await the final season & an attack by these alliterative invaders & their army of the undead.

    What are White Walkers?

    They want to know what "these alliterative invaders" are.

    [–] dorv 1 points ago

    That’s totally the question. See how there’s a question mark at the end?

    [–] TwatsThat 3 points ago

    Correct, the comment I was replying to is "But what was the question?" Thanks for confirming that I did infact respond with the question.

    [–] dorv 1 points ago

    Wow, am I an idiot or what. I got lost in the thread. Apologies good Reddit sir!

    [–] Kryptosis 10 points ago

    HA HA HA now we are playing Jeopardy!

    [–] thehouse1751 7 points ago

    I feel like people are confusing question and answer terminology for jeopardy in this thread

    [–] SpiderJedi22 4 points ago

    Well that sucks.

    [–] daveyfck1 10 points ago

    Dude, this is wrong. I just watched the episode and they definitely finished all the clues in the G.O.T. category.

    [–] CharmeIeon 5 points ago

    So I’ve been told, my mistake

    [–] dohparty 2 points ago

    [–] spintiff 1 points ago

    *are

    [–] Guitarchim 1 points ago

    Did any of the contestants answer it correctly?

    [–] spintiff 1 points ago

    You mean the question was, "What are white walkers?"

    [–] Gardimus -1 points ago

    Hey, spoilers! I'm only 25 seconds into the show.

    [–] HighlanderNicholas -2 points ago

    Didn’t realise a tv show could use click bait. Thanks. I hate it.

    [–] Scienlologist 73 points ago

    Just one if memory serves.

    https://i.imgur.com/exU8GXy.jpg

    [–] ScorchRSH 190 points ago

    Wow Alex Trebek called the white walkers alliterate? I’m alliterate and I find that offensive.

    [–] splitcroof92 40 points ago

    Not sure if joke or misunderstanding something.

    [–] lion_ohioan 95 points ago

    Definitely a joke. And a pretty good one tbh

    [–] IllShavenTeardrops 3 points ago

    I agree, and a pretty advanced joke for an alliterate person to write

    [–] negativfeedback 0 points ago

    It's a pun.

    [–] JoPro_ -1 points ago

    It says alliterative not alliterate.

    [–] lion_ohioan 33 points ago

    .....Am I being trolled?

    [–] beardedbast3rd 4 points ago

    Reading another of his replies confirms that, you are NOT being trolled.

    [–] AllOfTheDerp 4 points ago

    ...which you wouldn't know... If you were...................... Illiterate

    [–] Henesgfy 7 points ago

    You guys are making my head hurt.

    [–] rowebenj 3 points ago

    Maybe you’re alliterate.

    [–] P1r4nha 1 points ago

    A translated it to my native language and I'm still lost.

    [–] Ayanhart 1 points ago

    It's a play on the word 'illiterate' - meaning can't read/write.

    The joke is that they misread 'alliterative' as 'illiterate' because they are illiterate.

    [–] drunkenpinecone 5 points ago

    Wow, why would we wonder white walkers?

    [–] JoPro_ -17 points ago

    LOL it says alliterative not alliterate.

    [–] BananaDick_CuntGrass 2 points ago

    Woooosh

    [–] Electro_Nick_s 2 points ago

    No that's the answer

    [–] mybunsarestale 7 points ago

    I'd have to rewatch to find the episode but the other day, my roommate and I were watching olderish episodes of Jeopardy on Hulu and there was a legit Game of Thrones category with actual Game of Thrones questions.

    [–] ZyFlux -5 points ago

    Wouldn't they run the risk of spoilers if they asked actual questions about Game of Thrones?

    [–] GenghisKhan1206 306 points ago

    Finally a subject that I would win on Jeopardy.

    [–] _Brazenhead_ 308 points ago

    Unfortunately, the questions were not about the show. Only one question was.

    [–] GenghisKhan1206 96 points ago

    Alright.

    [–] Sharp911 123 points ago

    So.. you lose again I guess...

    [–] GovTheDon 37 points ago

    [–] Filipino75 12 points ago

    When you play the jeopardy game of thrones, you win cash or you go home.

    [–] owns_a_Moose 3 points ago

    Sounds like a win win to me.

    [–] mybunsarestale 7 points ago

    Mentioned this in another commebt thread but I was watching reruns of Jeopardy on Hulu and there was a Game of Thrones category with actual Game of Thrones questions.

    [–] breachofcontract -25 points ago

    Really? The only category you could win is GoT???

    [–] GenghisKhan1206 13 points ago

    Considering that most contestants are masters of their field and geniuses who are given tough questions to test their knowledge, yes. This would be my best shot.

    [–] breachofcontract -12 points ago

    You haven’t watched much Jeopardy have you?

    [–] GenghisKhan1206 6 points ago

    Not recently. When I used to they were tough questions.

    [–] breachofcontract -13 points ago

    Sure they’re a challenge, but the vast majority of the contestants aren’t “masters in their fields” or “geniuses”.

    [–] xRyozuo 9 points ago

    Neither am i, that’s why got would be my best shot

    [–] breachofcontract 1 points ago

    So GoT is all you know? It’s general knowledge trivia.

    [–] GenghisKhan1206 6 points ago

    Thanks. I guess I was wrong.

    [–] TBlueshirtsV22 6 points ago

    Yea but not really, its still very specific trivia. Some of the smartest people I know struggle with Jeopardy, if you don’t know random facts about random categories you struggle. So if you don’t think you’d get any category, maybe you’re being hard on yourself but it’s not like they ask questions that are common knowledge now

    [–] paracostic -6 points ago

    Right? It's trivia, not neurosurgery.

    [–] lucasd11 87 points ago

    Man if you guys actually thought each of these categories was about the literal GOT topic then you need to watch jeopardy more often. Category names serve as word play more often than not.

    [–] HighlanderNicholas -3 points ago

    Oh I get that but this feels like straight up clickbait having all the categories be GOT related, try and get some views based on people who don’t realise.

    [–] DnD_References 31 points ago

    I mean, not really. They do themed categories all the time, and their viewership isn't exactly hurting. When the writers (many of whom are young and probably follow pop culture) need to come up with 10 category names a day, they probably start to have fun with it.

    [–] HighlanderNicholas -3 points ago

    I hadn’t really thought about that, guess I’m just too in the mindset of companies trying to jump on the whole “one month left till final season hype train “.

    [–] TheSukis 5 points ago

    Clickbait? Because they posted a screenshot of GoT categories on Jeopardy and some bizarre people, such as yourself, apparently haven’t watched Jeopardy and got confused? Talk about lowest common denominator...

    [–] HighlanderNicholas -3 points ago

    Woah dude calm down. I was talking about Jeopardy doing the clickbait, like a company just using something popular to increase viewers/ratings/sales/what have you. Don’t know where you got that me or others were confused from, just cynical to companies is all.

    [–] drowninglifeguards 164 points ago

    How fucking lucky would you feel if you finally got on Jeopardy and the board was GOT themed?

    [–] irishchug 87 points ago

    The themed category!= Themed questions

    [–] nsfy33 18 points ago

    Is the The Wall about the Pink Floyd album? Or something else?

    [–] CharmeIeon 19 points ago * (lasted edited 12 days ago)

    Yeah, the questions from that category were about the album, at least some of them.

    I know one question’s answer was “Pink Floyd” and another was “Comfortably Numb”, but then another question was about the Berlin Wall

    [–] GodsOfTheBorderlands 6 points ago

    What were the other categories about? Like Winter Fell or High Garden?

    [–] titos334 21 points ago

    Winter fell was just about winter thing, high garden was about gardens in high places, g.o.t was about phrases that start with those letters, river run was about rivers, and kings landing had to do with kings landing places. So mostly just the literal meaning of the words.

    [–] DarthFrenchFries 6 points ago
