FJ an instaget for me, even playing off the clue of the day without the picture. “Ball” was enough to get me to Dyson.

I thought the Art category harder than normal.

Re: Wednesday, October 24, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Instaget FJ. I'm almost certain the Bloemfontein/flowers connection has come up in an FJ before, but I don't know when, or if I got it right then. January 2017. I didn't know it then, and am actually kind of surprised I came up with the name this time. I don’t think I knew it then either, but my su...

Re: Wednesday, October 17, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

While I think I would have gotten this FJ anyway, I was helped by coincidentally having watched Dr. Zhivago last weekend, in which there are a couple of references to Petrograd. A pedant (and son of a baker) would note that the picture of a cruller would, at least in the Northeast, be called a Frenc...

29,000 Coryat. Whiffed on grappa (I called it "groppo"); I'm obviously not a drinker. But missing it like that means it'll stick next time. OTOH I was happy to see the zither music of The Third Man get a mention; too bad it wasn't an audio clue. FJ I considered and dismissed the correct answer (Sol...

Re: Friday, October 5, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Supreme Allied Commander -> WWII (and probably WWI, but WWII is the first thing that comes to mind). First instinct: D-Day. Second instinct: 'COSSAC' sounds like Cossack -> USSR. WWII + USSR + plan = ...??!?! Ehhhh, stick with D-Day. Every other idea that came to mind sounded too vague. I'll take i...

Re: Monday, October 1, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Can’t believe “Mooch” was accepted without clarification.

I would have taken “World Literature” as a clue that the answer is probably not a British or American novel.

Know all about Grafton, but didn’t think they would be looking for a “popular” author and her name never occurred to me.

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

I got this FJ as an instaget off the NY Times clue of the day-one of my top 5 favorite movies- so no benefit to me from Alex’s impression, but add me to the list of those who think he shouldn’t be doing them.

Indonesia. Added the e to Guillotin. No idea on the Reagan movie, but do know where Notre Dame is located.

Had puppet for Coppelia.

Have seen the proper spelling for restaurateur, but probably would have added the n out of habit.

Considered Brazil, but talked myself into Indonesia, figuring she ocean kayaked around the islands.

Thought a picture of Federer extremely easy for $1000. On the other hand false Dimitri’s and The Disaster Artist I thought pretty obscure in DJ.
