Re: Monday, May 20, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

This was a good FJ. I looked at first to Voltaire, then The French Revolution, and got to Emile Zola. Was wondering what was up w/ Pepin the Short getting negged.. I could challenge Iron horse for being the most non-movie person on the board, and I knew "Born on the Fourth of July". That movie was h...

RTFC! Missed the law school part, went off track.

. OTOH, if Francois had bet more than $0 to surpass Sara's potential $45,600, we'd find out whether "Geog." was sufficiently correct with two syllables missing.
How is this even an issue? National Geographic's own promos refer to themselves as Nat Geo, which can be found on YouTube.

I have done some calculating. According to my numbers, through 22 games, in locked games, if James had bet the maximum he could and still be guaranteed to win, instead of betting meaningful numbers, he would have acquired an additional $46,687. That is a lot to leave on the table.. Not when you've ...

The best I could come up with in the 30 seconds was "kickstarting."

OK, James neutralized the DD by picking it first, & was still running away with it at the end of SJ.

They just said "geographic" name, not specifically a continent, right? Needed both parts for the clue,. Element 63 put it in the Lanthanide series, & geographic name = Europium.

If you grew up in the '80s, it was impossible not to know Sixteen Candles. :geek:
