The groups are posted for the indie music ML. I'm in 113.
I'm in a really obscure group. You wouldn't have heard of it.
I'll probably only play the first couple match days. I really don't like their later stuff...

Re: Friday, July 19, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Here's one for the judges...In Apollo Missions for $800, would V have been required or should Saturn be acceptable? Saturn alone would get BMSed. Definitely as there were three variants of the Saturn rocket: the Saturn I, Saturn IB, and Saturn V. Only the Saturn V meets the qualifications of the cl...

I looked at the list of female governors about a week ago and still didn't get this FJ right. Here's the list in case anyone is interested.

Re: Monday, July 15, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I'll be interested to see how this FJ polls because I, too, thought it was a gimme until seeing several people here who whiffed on it. Even if you don't know Shirley Jackson has an award named after her (I certainly didn't), the rest of the clue seemed very much in the WECIB category. And I could s...

Re: 2019 TOC Updates

However, as anyone who reads this thread can grasp, any such criticism is simply not applicable in the present instance, because at most Emma could have bumped one person, and that person will get a ToC berth. How can you be sure? Just because they're eligible for the next ToC doesn't guarantee the...

I was pretty excited to see a clue about Bauhaus the band rather than Bauhaus the architecture!

And I don’t think she hesitated for one second to accept that invite knowing it full well, same as any of us wouldn’t hesitate.
I agree. No one is going to reject a ToC spot that is offered. Emma has no culpability here.

Re: Friday, July 12, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Seems like I've heard that etymology for "gumshoe" a million times, so it was an instant for me.

What was the wording of the clue that TPH thought was kangaroo? I totally remember it as asking about the Gobi Desert, not Australia.

Re: Thursday, July 11, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I guessed Murphy Brown but no way I would have gone that route had I thought of Roseanne. Roseanne would certainly be pretty strong negbait especially if you're too young to really remember the original runs of either Roseanne or Murphy Brown. There wasn't anything overtly political that I can reca...

Look at it this way. Emma won more money in her three wins than most of the 4Xers who aren't competing in the Tournament of Champions.
Which is great and shows Emma is a great player, but the standard has always been that number of wins are the #1 criterion for ToC selection.

Re: 2019 TOC Updates

I don't like this. It feels contrary to the spirit of the tournament. Me either. I'd be absolutely pissed if I was a four-time champ but got passed over because they decided to choose giant killer Emma. It's an indefensible* move as far as I'm concerned. The bunch of other four-time champs were not...

Three of us watching at my house and we all knew FJ immediately, so was a bit surprised when the first two missed it. In my world "jerry-rigged" wouldn't be accepted. :D

Re: Monday, July 1, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

My first instinct was Amazonia and I had to count the number of letters a couple times before realizing it's one short. Came up with Polynesia with just a few seconds left with little confidence. I have to agree this clue was a stinker.
