Re: Monday, February 23, 2015 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

Coincidentally, I read an article written by Gemma on mlb.com earlier today.

Did anyone else think "world cup" wasn't specific enough? Off the top of my head, FIBA's basketball world cup also took place in 2014.

Re: Monday, November 17, 2014 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

That's called taking the negbait, hook line and sinker. If the clue had just been "this capital is farthest from Madrid," I would have had it. (I've seen several trivia questions about New Zealand being close to antipodal to various points in Europe) Instead, the clue led me (probably intentionally...

I went straight to Turks and Caicos, but overthought it because I didn't think a British territory could have a "National ____"

Re: ToC Stats

Interesting that the 4 highest scoring years were back to back to back to back (90-93). Maybe the writers went took it easy for a few years?

I got the clue right anyway, but I could have sworn that a mole was a measure of quantity, not atomic weight.

Re: TD 195: The Beautiful Game

"Beautiful Game" my ass. Twenty guys run up and down the field for ninety minutes like ants on amphetamines, and no one can score. Then they concede that no one can score, give up playing soccer altogether, and go to a different game to "settle the game." As if a baseball game or a football game we...

Re: Wednesday, July 2, 2014 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

I feel like I might be the first poster to get FJ right. I knew Guam was west of American Samoa, then my mind went right to Puerto Rico, but I didn't think it would have an English place name. Got USVI with ~10 seconds left. For what it's worth, I thought the clue was pretty straight forward. I don'...

Re: Wednesday, June 11, 2014 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

Less than insta-get for me; I thought the wording was very confusing.

Vermonter can correct me, but I thought it was poor wagering from 1st and 2nd. Shouldn't 1st wager to tie, and 2nd go either 0 or all-in?

Can't believe they had that NFL question. What would have happened if she'd reponded "The Washington Racial Slurs", or something like that?

I hear Kim Jong-un is undefeated in the North Korean version. He's never missed a single clue, and always rings in first.
