First 6: 3
7-12: 1
13-18: 3
19-24: 5
25-30: 6
31-36: 5
Last 6: 6
So there were only 13 players who did not use their drop. Thanks, Paucle!

Re: TD 202: Lea-TDer of the Flock

I'm curious to know how many players did not drop a question, making them eligible for the early bird bonuses. My guess is that fewer than 20 players (out of the total of 42) did not drop a question. I did drop one.

Re: Think Different 201: In Honor of the Geography Bee

Continuing with our fabulous adventure is Question 9 Guangzhou International Finance Center (1): Binky PYL: -10 pts Princess Tower (1): Christy PYL: -10 pts I've only looked at the last 30 TDs or so, but I'm curious: Has anyone ever before gotten a reduction of 10 points or more on a single answer?...

It was Othello and Cyprus in case anyone's interested.
I also said Cyprus, so it's not going to be a singleton!
Nor will it be a doubleton . . . :)
Nor will it be a tripleton. :P

Bonus for Question #6. You wrote: "I will deduct one point off of your score for each of the three songs that hit #1 in the Billboard Hot 100 charts that you can identify." Do you want the titles of the three songs, or just the letters?

I knew that Jack Warden was in the film, but I didn't know his juror number. So I just picked a number between 1 and 12. I chose 7 and got lucky! :D

It's because some people have entered the contest in past seasons, but not in the current season.

Re: Think Different 182 -- 2 Out of 5

Phenomenal performance, Aardvark! What was your strategy? I'm with Joy in wondering about Aardvark's strategy. I hope Aardvark chimes in and tells us. My strategy was pretty much what every TD strategy should be: to give answers that other players are not likely to give. I was pretty certain I knew...

Re: Your Screenname: What inspired it?

I chose the first word that appears in many dictionaries, so that it will be alphabetically first in responses to polls here on Jboard. This makes it easier to find my own username if I want to review my responses to polls at a later date. Actually, there are about ten Jboard users who are alphabeti...

Thanks econgator for the great game! I really enjoyed it. This was my first-ever TD entry, and I'm surprised I finished in second place. Now on to TD 177!

I've just become a boardie here. This TD looks very interesting! I hope I get to play it. (I will need to get three posts approved to be able to submit private messages.)

EDIT: I've just gotten my three posts approved, so I'll be able to play! Hooray!
