Count me in with those who said shogun on Thursday. I know what a pram is, but I didn't know it came from "perambulator."

The Beverly Hillbillies is waaaaay before my time, so I haven't ever seen an episode.

Re: Tuesday, January 30, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

The arctic tern made me think of Colin Mochrie. :lol: You're not the only one. :D I got FJ fairly quickly. I tried thinking of novels with mythology-themed titles and Ulysses managed to pop into my head pretty quickly. From there I made it to Daedalus. I'm liking Ryan so far, he seems to have a ver...

Just the other day, the $2000 clue in "Anagrammed Names" from the Rutter/Frates/Cooper M$M semifinal popped into my head, making tonight's FJ an instaget:

For some reason, that clue popped into my head as well.

I was spoiled on the FJ clue thanks to Jeopardy's Twitter page. I feel confident I would've gotten it, but I think I'll have to leave the appropriate box unchecked. :x

No, not Auckland. No, not Christchurch. Shawn! Come on now, dude. Splinter group was my response for the FJ! clue. +1 for splinter group and yelling at the TV when Shawn didn't get Wellington (which wasn't the only time I yelled at the TV tonight).

My second 3/5 week in a row, and oddly enough, this week's​ gets and misses are in the exact same pattern as last week.

6/10 in this year's ToC overall, which I'm very happy about since I only got three clues in the past two ToCs combined.

Re: Friday, November 17, 2017 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

Man, what a fantastic game to end the tournament. Quite the roller coaster with Buzzy hitting that DD, and Alan missing his (which I was devastated by since I was rooting for him, and since I think he would've gotten it had he taken more time). Austin also did well enough to stay in contention by FJ...

I'm glad to see Alan do well today and I'm excited to see him in the finals. Personally, I was rooting for him in today's game and I consider him to be one of the favorites in the tournament, but of course, Buzzy and Austin won't be easy to defeat. Regardless of what happens, I'm excited for the fin...

Re: Friday, November 10, 2017 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

It may be just me, but I feel like the games have gotten tougher as the week progressed. I lost the coin flip between Edward and George. I can never instantly recall the order of the Edwards and Georges after Victoria's reign, and the pressure of those 30 seconds didn't help. And so the quarterfinal...

Re: Tuesday, November 7, 2017 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

Surprisingly, I got this FJ, since FJ clues about geography have never been a particular strength of mine. The last two Tournaments of Champions (is that the correct plural?), I went a combined 3/20, so another get this week will equal my total from the last two years combined. I don't mean to toot ...

Ah, visualizing maps. The bane of my existence, one of the things I hope to never have to do should I somehow get on the show. I said Georgia just to have something and was nowhere close to getting Iran.

Congrats to Manny for his third win. Don't spend today's winnings in one place. :lol:

A bit late to the party, but way to go Scarlett! Congrats on the successful debut and I hope this is the start of a streak of your own.

And of course, congrats to Austin on a great run himself. Can't wait to see how he does in next month's tournament.

I had Mongolia, but couldn't think of Monaco for Friday.

4 weeks into the season, and this is my third 4/5 week. This is my best start to the season ever, FJ-wise.

Probably because this was taped the same time as the Season 32 Teachers Tournament semifinals and the Season 32 Celebrity Tournament. But the board filling sound of Season 33 was probably digitally added in postproduction (I wonder if the Season 32 sound was played when it was being filmed. Andy, I...

I think this may be the first summer hiatus challenge where I haven't had a perfect score day. The quiz is great and the scoring amazingly fair, but the difficulty of the harder questions has been creeping up. Same. I have been one away a couple of times I believe but no perfect scores. I guess thi...
