Re: Tuesday, May 22, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

I would have been tempted to wager 8k on the Art DD in Josh's spot. But I never even thought of Dali. I went with Duchamp, with Picasso as my second guess. I had a major case of dejavue on that one because it seemed like they just asked for Dali in a mustache category last week. Then I realized it ...

Re: TD 379 - CLASSIC AREA CODES 7xx (701 & 702 REVEALED)

Ugghh, I start off with a big sheep on the first Q, then get a wrong answer compounded on the massive sheep for Olympia. How I'm not in last place is a surprise. I thought Grace Slick was going to sheep for sure on the first one. Also thought Joel Osteen would rack up a lot of points. Oh, and Ann Ma...

Re: Thursday, May 3, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

This FJ clue gave most of us a chance to feel like TenPoundHammer. Because we all remember what place name was liberated in early November; and what war is being refered to....oh wait, they're looking for the name of a film. It could be anything, ahh forget it, times up. I'm in my late 50s and I've ...

Re: Tuesday, May 1, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

I don't understand the bets by either 1st or 3rd place, either. After Osman made that wager in his first game to come up with a cutesy sum, the last thing I expected of him was an even thousand value that fell short of covering 2nd place. I might not have been surprised if he had wagered 8322, to b...

Re: Monday, April 30, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

Osman won me over with that FJ wager.
I'm hoping he can put a stop to the recent trend of one day champions who won their first game convincingly, only to get dusted off in their second game.

Nice wagering by Carolyn. She seemed to be rather obvious with her body language at times. I wonder if she gave off any hints she didn’t know sports that Robert failed to pick up on. Not that he was great at wagering math. But I'm trying to figure out what sport Candy Cane might have played. :shock...

Re: Wednesday, April 25, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

So how does Randy solve a geography clue on Tuesday that will poll under 50% and miss one that will poll at 85%? It seemed like a WECIB to me IMO, I think this should poll 95%, but I'm amazed to see so many boardies reporting they shanked it so far. If you recognize that Canada, like the U.S., expa...

I second this.
I think it is much more likely to be the reason than the FJ theory.

Great timing for a special bulletin, NBC. ABC broke in just as they went to break before FJ. I thought it would be a wash for sure, but thankfully they "returned to your regular programming" just in time for the reading of the clue. Wow. I can see Thatcher maybe not wanting to chance Hannah underwa...

I am sad though that the pop music category had unrevealed clues. When the category was revealed, I was expecting it to be a multiple choice; name one out of three songs. It turned out to be just an identify the group from the song. Not as fun. Then all the songs were gen X or newer so I wasn't goi...

I had the solution as soon as I saw "Tommy Lee Jones". Thought a tiebreaker was coming for sure until I saw Kristen's wager. :roll: I don’t understand why in a tie after DJ! contestants bet all but $1 to avoid the tiebreaker clue. Kristen was lucky that Jack got it wrong. Worse yet, she risked a tie...

Geez, I could hardly recognize that portrait of (perhaps) the most famous Attorney General in U.S. history.

Daniel had the only sub-par wager in FJ but ended up getting a singleton for the win. Not having the same hootspah on his DDs cost him about $7,000.

Could TPH have gotten his second FJ right before Easter? This has to be about the easiest FJ I've seen in years. And I'm not just saying that because I worked as a contractor for the agency in question for 2 1/2 years. I'd never heard of the lady mentioned in the clue. Same here. The name meant not...

Shannan played to try to win the game while securing second place. Mission accomplished. Not that I was looking forward to another tiebreaker, but come ON!!! I give up. I didn't look at it so much as securing second place, but rather keeping Alex out of the equation. After seeing how Emily wagered ...
