Re: Wednesday, January 16, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I got FJ because similar clues have come up before (notably a FJ in the UToC), but I thought that that was a tough FJ clue. But at least it makes 9 straight FJ gets for me!

Re: LL79: For the LLamas

Talk about a forehead slapper on the Franz Ferdinand question. It cost me a win or a tie, as I lost 2(2)-3(1).

Re: LL79: For the LLamas

I lost 5(4)-7(4) in the rock n roll ML yesterday. I was shocked that my opponent missed Radiohead, which I zeroed. I have a total of 10 TCA and am in 10th place, while the person who is currently in 9th in my group has 3 TCA. Maybe I should have played the France ML. I had 3 questions right yesterda...

Last week I was 1/5 on FJs, and only got Friday's. The previous week I also went 5/5. Weird.

Re: Monday, December 31, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Ronan was my guess on the FJ clue, though I really wasn't sure if she had ever been nominated at all. I also considered Wallis, but didn't think she was correct.

Re: Friday, December 28, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

It was a ridiculously easy board up until the Gulfs and Numerical Hits categories. I thought that they both were tough, so I can't really fault the contestants. I did know Finland, Oman, and Two Princes (and One Headlight, which was not a TS), though. The FJ clue was a reversion back to the trend of...

Re: Monday, December 24, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I hadn't watched the show in awhile but I tuned in tonight and found this to be a very easy board overall, though there were a few toughies there at the end (Roget, Fairey, Raleigh, Under Milkwood). I was 14/15 at the first commercial break and maybe could have had Von Steuben with a few more second...

Re: LL79: For the LLamas

I was in the promotion zone to C (top 3) from the end of MD 12 through the end of MD 24, tied on the last day, and fell to 5th. It is probably for the better, as I really do not belong in C. My 59 TCA this season was my third lowest total ever (I had three previous seasons with 57 and one with 58) a...

Re: LL79: For the LLamas

I picked New South Wales over Tasmania, got wreckless and said "jumped" without checking the letter counts, had a forehead slapper on Jersey Shore, and despite having seen Home Alone multiple times couldn't remember anything other than The Grinch having clips in it, and thus finished with a 0(0). So...

Re: LL79: For the LLamas

I felt good about yesterday's set before I submitted, as 4 correct is usually good for a win in D. But I gave my opponent a 3 for Cardi B when pop music was a middle of the road category for them but they still only had a .372 lifetime average in it. When I submitted and saw that Cardi B was correct...

Re: LL79: For the LLamas

My opponent had a lifetime .363 batting average in Literature and .419 in Art...and yet they could name a classic Chinese novel, but not the most famous Norwegian painting. I gave them a 3 on the former and a 0 on the latter, but still came away with an 8(5)-6(3) win. My only miss was the baseball c...

Re: LL79: For the LLamas

I tied once again yesterday to bring my record to 8-5-1. I am sitting in 1st place in my rundle with 32 TCA, and the person in 2nd has 51. I may buy a lottery ticket tonight.

Re: LL79: For the LLamas

Current events are my worst category, but I knew Sentinelese (and actually put "North Sentinelese") and was rewarded with a 3. It was such a big story, though I have been fascinated by North Sentinel island for awhile and might not have remembered the name of the tribe if not for the geography conne...

Re: LL79: For the LLamas

Count me as another one who thought Boeing but was thrown off by the Chicago bit. I had a dilemma on the question on A Star is Born. I knew the year and the plot were right but was not familiar with the names of the actors, and despite my ignorance of film I thought that I would have at least heard ...

Re: LL79: For the LLamas

My good luck continues. Yesterday I won 5(2)-1(1). Film is my second worst category, but I'm a big boxing fan so I have watched the Rocky movies. I was hoping for a 3 on Clubber Lang and a 2 on UCLA, and I got 'em. Grey was a forehead slapper, though. Then on Wednesday I lucked into a 1(1)-1(2) tie....

Re: Wednesday, November 28, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

The FJ! clue had my coin fall on the wrong side as the ghost of Kate Smith must have been influenced the toss. At least it is one of those misses when I know I will have company before the day is done. God Bless America? For me, the two that came to mind were Star Spangled Banner and America the Be...

Re: LL79: For the LLamas

I can't believe that Tippecanoe had a 71% get rate, but Booker Prize was only 58%. That's about what I would have pegged them at. I doubt most Americans have heard of the Booker Prize, but certainly have heard of Tippecanoe. Coming up with the President with that nickname is another story, but some...

Re: LL79: For the LLamas

I can't believe that Tippecanoe had a 71% get rate, but Booker Prize was only 58%. I got a tie and have yet to lose this season, though I have been extremely lucky with defense and my opponents' defense. Yesterday I caught a break that I didn't know the math question, which was from my best category...

Re: Friday, November 23, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I had Munich (and Moscow and Mexico City), but I would have never got Montreal.

This was a great game!
