Re: Tuesday, February 20, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

Somehow I managed to go thru childhood without ever reading A Wrinkle in Time, took an 0fer in the category. Plenty of trash available: cross, Aaron Burr DD, Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr., Mahatma Gandhi, Urdu, road rage (thanks to RobW's explanation), Timothy Dalton. Forgot the category, or I could've ...

Re: Monday, February 19, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

Does anyone have the wording of the Scandinavia clue? Something about "Simi's Sense of Snow" led me to take the alliterative route and guess Sweden. Trash: Crazy Glue, Chinatown (Yeah, I got a movie TS :geek: ), Fata Morgana. The last clue involving Patton made no sense to me. Couldn't figure out wh...

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

Was there any reason we should know that Janus is the god of doorways? I got it, but it was the WAGgiest of WAGs. I consider this a good reason: http://www.j-archive.com/search.php?search=god+janus+door&submit=Search Take away "door" from the search term and there are more hits. J! uses lots of the...

Apparently I completely messed this up. I thought it was going for Lola from "Damn Yankees."

Some trash today: Westinghouse, Rabbit Run, Janus DD, Milwaukee, probability, Gamaliel,
Bit on the Olympic Torch negbait. :x
FJ had me hoping it was early '90s, it was! :mrgreen:

I heard "roots" In the Costco clue and thought it was Dollar Tree. :? Got the skipjack trash, but took some strange highways in FJ! and end up over at the Waltons. :roll:

Re: Monday, February 12, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

these were some good contestants, the only trash I could pick up was the shell shock DD. Bets may be questionable, but FJ as noted above was a WECIB. Surprised at hearing that Katrina & the Waves did Eurovision. Instructional for TPH, better to come up with a joke answer like Don than wave the white...

Re: FJs for the 2/5/18 week

:( :roll: :mrgreen: :( :mrgreen: HBO for Weather Channel, pluralized Apology, and guessed Furman for Emory--at least I knew it wasn't U of GA.
:mrgreen: :( :mrgreen: Shoulda got Riverwood, not understanding the difficulty of large/smallmouth bass.

the only problem is the tracks are out of order chronologically, having to fit them on a vinyl album.

Knew it wasn't U of GA, couldn't think of a medical university in Atlanta. Guessed Furman, which turns out to be in South Carolina. :?

If I realized who Richard Rodgers was, I might have gotten Oklahoma, but no way in this universe I was going to pull Stephen Daedalus.

Re: Thursday, February 1, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

what happened? Just caught the last two questions--easy trash pickup Betty Boop & Thirtysomething and I didn't even know the category.
Wasn't sure of Kerouac in FJ!, but couldn't think of anyone else, so it paid off.

Re: Wednesday, January 31, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

I am shocked that FJ was not a triget. :o trash: Pirates of Penzance DD, Rubik, Dark Horse (James K Polk), Murder Inc. and THIS is why you do not run the categories from the top. Ryan hunted and found the DDs to take back the game. and in tribute to Ryan, this scene https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J...
