Re: Tuesday, May 22, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

FJ pure YEKIOYD IMO, otherwise it's "pick a random 19th c Russian author". Went with Tolstoy, and Pushkin would've been my third guess behind Chekov.

Re: Wednesday, May 23, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

I got Phobos and Deimos from knowing they are the moons of Mars. But now am bemused by the fact that the planet is Roman, but the moons are Greek. That seems odd. Not really. Most of the moons are named for Greek mythological characters. When Uranus' moons were discovered, they decided to throw in ...

ran homophonic pairs and Bible study, picking up trash in those categories. Also got oysters.
Guessed West Point for FJ just to have something. I wasn't getting Harper's Ferry out of that. :(

NHO plumbago before the FJ, total WAG.

Easy Peasy FJ.
New Caledonia faked me out. Was sure it was UK.

Total WAG on FJ. Never heard of plumbago, but locked in to back pain = lumbago, add a p in front, hm...plumbago sounds kinda like plumbum, latin name for lead. Got nothing else so go with it. Really, plumbago is a thing? :o

Re: Wednesday, May 16, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

Most overvalued clue ever--spotting the initials "BK" in a fast food category on a fourth-row clue.
Glad to see the return of Those Darn Etruscans.
Sussed out FJ, not an instaget tho.

Re: Tuesday, May 15, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

I'd have passed out if they knew Biohazard -> Resident Evil. I'm mildly surprised they even got bandicoot. Also wasn't expecting much from World Capitals after that French Guiana TS in the first round, but they did well enough. Instaget FJ. that was my only miss in Video Games. Also surprised they ...

I went after major southern cities at that time. Atlanta--no, Savannah--no, Charlotte--no, Charleston--yes. Ran dips, got lederhosen, chuckled when Wicked was guessed after being spotted 1975.

Ranjani, 12K would've got you a spot in the semis easily. No need for the big bet. :(
There's no way for him to know that.
This was from tonight's game. And she shouldn't have made that big bet.

Re: Friday, May 11, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

Now THIS is the kind of FJ I expect in a Teachers' Tournament. Too bad about Ranjani, I was hoping she'd pull out the win after running Shakespeare and coming up with "syzygy".

Glad I wasn't the only one surprised that Appelation for the Teacher was a train wreck of a category.
You could've spotted me Nora and given me all day for FJ and I wouldn't have got it. This is a TEACHERS' tournament, can we have some academic FJs please?

What happened with Eighth Wonder of the World? That seemed an inexplicable error.

Glad I wasn't the only one who thought it was a tough FJ. I was stumbling around the west coast trying to find a matching city, no way to get to Fargo in time. Hai and Skydome were surprising TS.

Instaget FJ with Passepartout, didn't need anything else. Far and away the easiest FJ of the week.
