I will be in Rundle D Highland Div 2. I recognize no other players in my rundle.

Re: Friday, February 16, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

I really, really, really enjoyed this board, and I don't think that I ever remember feeling like there were this many YKIOYD style clues in one game...Springfield, House of Burgesses, Aquitaine, etc. I didn't think that it was an overly hard board, either, so it made for a great game. I also really ...

Re: Wednesday, February 14, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

These findings were quite surprising to me, since I always thought Santana was more of a 70s and 80s act, and even among people who actually were listening to pop music in the 90s, I've found that both "Maria Maria" and "Smooth" seem pretty obscure now. “Smooth” was pretty inescapable circa 1999-20...

hearing test: Did not catch RobW's "Rabbit Runs" but did catch the Galamiel neg.
Same here. I thought that I heard "Rabbit RUN," and was confused by the neg.

I would not have guessed that the author of Midnight's Children and the Pritzker Prize would be triple stumpers.

I got FJ off the category.

Re: Wednesday, February 7, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

I got FJ purely from the sports angle. I don't see how else you could have got this one. I can see the orange and Dutch connection, but since you needed all 3 this strikes me as a strange clue.

That strikes me as a tough FJ clue, though I am not as strong on ancient philosophy as I am on more modern philosophical works. All I could think of was The Republic.

Re: Friday, February 2, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

I thought that Zagreb may have been the easiest clue in the alphabetical capitals. I also couldn't believe that Billy Graham was a $2000 clue when spotted "Billy" and "evangelical." I made the same mistake with the "Great Schism" response, but I was happy to get the bottom two clues in that category...

Re: Monday, January 15, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

At first I thought there had been a recent FJ with that correct response...then I remembered that it was a less obvious LL question that I missed. That made me more confident that the obvious answer was the correct one.

Re: Friday, January 12, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

I would have missed the FJ clue if not for the LL question this past season on Ethiopia. I had thought that Egypt was Africa's second most populous country, but in all the buzz around that question I learned that Ethiopia was actually #2. I still think that is kind of a vague and trivial FJ clue, th...

Netherlands was my first instinct on FJ, then I thought of Monaco, but luckily I stuck with my first instinct.

Re: Learned League 75 - Official Thread

Usually 5/6 is good for a win in D rundle, but I tied 7(5)-7(5) yesterday. My opponent's worst category was geography and their third worst was film, but I took a chance and gave them 3 for The English Patient and 2 for Frankfurt, thinking that Germany is a pretty popular tourist destination and the...

No hope for me on FJ. I had no chance from the language angle, and I never would have thought of Dunkirk without a TOM related to the famous evacuation.

Not that I thought that it was correct, but I guessed Sanford and Son for the Oldsmobile question.

I had never heard of the correct response to the Wednesday or Friday FJ clue.

Re: Learned League 75 - Official Thread

My opponent and I tied, as we both got a 0, 1, and a 3. My opponent was weak in World History and Pop Music was their worst category, but I took a chance and gave them 2 for Chaka Khan and 3 for Wenceslaus. I would have never guessed that the latter would play so easy, unless a lot of people just th...

It's a rare and special thing to live a dream; it's even rarer and more special to be able to do it with such mad skillz. Congrats, Bobby!

I hope to hear about Hawaii and anything else that you will do from here.
