Re: Wednesday, October 21, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Archive playthrough: Coryat $47,000 (53R, 1W) DD 3/3 FJ :mrgreen: My best game since I've been keeping score. I didn't give myself credit for Hugh Jackman because I wasn't sure I would have recognized him. Felt a little off-kilter for some of the clues in the first round, but 28/30 in DJ forgives a ...

Re: Tuesday, October 20, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Atomic mass and weight are not synonymous, I see that now. But where did chlorine come from? But would the judges have accepted "atomic mass"? That was my answer, since "weight" is variable depending upon gravity, whereas "mass" is constant. Mass and weight are different things, but atomic mass and...

People, would YOU have accepted just "William Tell"? I don't see why not.
That would be like accepting "the Black Album" for "Enter Sandman."

Doing Archive playthroughs for the time being because I am out of town and can't watch episodes. Coryat $43,200 (51R, 0W) DD 2/3 FJ :mrgreen: LT $11,600 if I did my math right plus FJ = 4th podium win Possibly the best I've ever done relative to the combined Coryat.

Coryat $34,600 (45R, 3W) DD 3/3 FJ :mrgreen: My Coryat slide continues. First $2000 neg of the year; matched Kristin with Northrop Grumman. Then tried to rebound with McDonnell-Douglas.

I figured Billboard 2020 was a sure 0-fer for me, but guessed Eminem correctly simply based on the fact he's a famous Detroit rapper. Even though I got lucky once there, I'd rather not see any recent pop-culture silliness, EVER. I got that one and Roxanne, as neither really required knowledge of th...

Alex opened on commenting about both challengers being "AA" names. Let's see cheezguyty find another set of "AA" players.
I bet this is the first time in Aaron's life he has been in a group of three people and not been first alphabetically.

Fred Dean, Hall of Fame DE for 49ers and Chargers, has died after battling COVID-19.
Wow. Happen to know his age? He couldn't have been terribly old. Young and strong and dead from the virus. Just wow.
68. Not exactly a spring chicken, but not very elderly either.

Coryat $31800 (43R, 3W) DD 2/3 FJ :( Had no idea gin came from the Netherlands. FJ not my favorite ever. Too much stabbing in the dark required. The best ones are the ones that force you to think, but then when you've got it, you know you've got it. My brain felt a little off kilter all game. Of cou...

Re: Tuesday, October 13, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I am not fond of the answer for the question about the 1937 disaster in Lakewood, New Jersey. The contestant replied, "what is Hindenburg?" Hindenburg is not a disaster. Hindenburg is the name of an airship. The correct response would be, what is the Hindenburg crash, or the Hindenburg explosion. I...

Kind of interesting that you can critique a wager even if you're the sole contestant. His small bet guaranteed that he'd be the first one (so far) cut from the ToC of the 4-game champs. To me, it'd be worth it to bet big and lock up the current 10th spot on the leaderboard - a likely invite if he w...

Coryat $35,800 (45R, 2W) DD 2/3 DJ :mrgreen: LT $11,200 - not quite good enough for the 4th podium victory On DD3, my mind went: Cubist = artist + female American in France -> Mary Cassatt. That's the price you pay for training on Pavlovs, I guess. Ran the NASCAR category, so I guess I absorbed a th...

Cockroach. Wasn't puzzled or thrown off by 2010. I just assumed it was a pinning year and of no help beyond that. I can totally see how someone might key in on the year and get off track. I was familiar with the Mexican monarch migrations but that didn't occur to me here. Michoacan just didn't ring...
