Re: Thursday, June 13, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I don't understand that "flimflam game" clue at all. I can't think of any terms for revered people that have "con" in them, nor do I see how "con" has to do with games. A revered person is known as a CONI. Con is related to games because Con Conrad, before he became a songwriter, was a partner of M...

Re: TD 423 - Mini-TD #7

It is VERY GOOD! I'm gonna make it a threepeat! And everyone will remember how my streak overlapped with that of James.

(Well, probably no one will remember.)

Sorry to see the forklift driver go. It was a pitched battle at the end. I felt bad for E.J. but come on - the veto clue was a gift. He must have been thrown by not knowing there actually is a physical document - I didn't know either. Yeah, I always pictured more of a giant rubber stamp. I said vet...

Re: Wednesday, June 12, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I bought my nephew a Viewmaster for Christmas a few years ago, so I am puzzled that Alex thinks all the contestants were too young to have received one. Viewmaster was once owned by GAF (because chemical companies selling toys was part of what was called diversification) and its spokesman was Henry ...

Re: Tuesday, June 11, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Recognizing any nouns associated with India never goes well. It's long-standing tradition. Moving on, how about Terri's hometown? I know Natick as a crossword puzzle term for an intersection of two unknown fills. Tell us about the Natick Mall. They built a new wing to the north that looks a lot lik...

Re: Monday, June 10, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I precalled Salt Lake City for three word cities. They put it in a complete giveaway clue in the $200 box. I would have made it a daily double with this clue: "the only state capital that fits this category."

Was Brendan doomed when he contradicted Alex about crime in DC?

I knew the clue eliminated Victoria and Winnipeg city hall is on main street. Not too many people know that almost every street in Edmonton is numbered. That left me with Regina and I felt blessed by the Toms in the clue.

Re: Thursday, June 6, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I thought of Arlo but only in the context of wondering what they'd do with "Who is Guthrie?" I was hoping one of the three would try it so I could find out. I'm definitely on the side that says there's no way they should accept it, and I doubt they would. I also agree that a pre-FJ instruction woul...

Would Red River have prompted a BMS
I doubt it, because that's what it's called. Red River of the North is what you call a "sign name." Also, Red River is the correct name on the Canadian side.

Another retail miss for me, as I've never been to Williams Sonoma and don't know what they sell. That's because there aren't any Williams-Sonoma stores in dead malls. A high-end cookware place is going to be one of the first to close when a mall starts going downhill. When my Williams-Sonoma gets r...

Re: Season 36 Changes & Predictions

I like how the TOC ups the game when it comes to Bloom's taxonomy. Instead of seeking Pavlovian associations of Shakespeare characters with plays, they reward people who've actually read the plays.

Re: Season 36 Changes & Predictions

1. The new host will be Jennifer Morrow. Every day viewers will be wondering what's in her scabbard. 2. Whenever a contestant says "carrots," ping pong balls will drop from the ceiling and flood the set with their bouncing. 3. Instead of solid blue, the cyclotron will regress down the spectrum until...

I got x-ray right away. I'm a licensed radio operator but I use the LAPD phonetic alphabet, not NATO, because I refuse to say whiskey. Kilo is also problematic because of its association with drugs, and sierra is problematic because it can start with either s or c. The FCC rules say hams have to use...

Re: Tuesday, June 4, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Perhaps this isn't the appropriate place for this question, but when I was at the contestant interview, the woman in charge (Maggie?) made a point of saying that Ken Jennings's record will never be broken. How could she know that? Why would she say it so boldly? What does she know that we don't know?

No guess on FJ! Could be anything.
No, it couldn't. The answer has to be a European country that would otherwise be on GMT. basically only Spain and Ireland and Norway. Italy is eliminated because it's naturally on the same time zone as Germany. Spain is the only one aligned with the krauts.

Re: James wouldn't have lost pre-James

Austin, since you know so much, can you tell me how the 2000-01 "Fugitive" revival was supposed to end? Last thing we saw, Lt. Girard was unconscious in his car, and an unsub pulled the trigger on either Dr. Kimble or the one-armed man. Then the screen went to black and the series was cancelled.

And reading through today's posts it seems like the game was at least partially spoiled here. Who did that and when do the beatings begin? Luckily I was able to avoid being spoiled.

Someone wanna break down that "tax on cigarettes" clue for $400? Given that a top box was literally the only TS in the entire game, I think the writers had a misfire there. I had no idea how to attack it. I didn't take a chance on it either. There was nothing pinning it to cigarette tax unless you ...
