Re: Summer Hiatus Challenge 2018--Round 3 Instant Replay (SPOILERS)

I can't say that I've ever heard of the word "midden" before; I'll file it under "learn something new every day." I don't even really know in what context it would come up - a form of archaeology?

Re: Summer Hiatus Challenge 2018--Round 3 Instant Replay (SPOILERS)

I don't know what the intended response was for the batteries clue, but I think "single-use batteries" should be accepted alongside "disposable batteries." Along similar lines, the 4-pointer seems ambiguous as to whether new Coke or Coke classic was the intended answer. So I put "new Coke (or Coca ...

Re: Summer Hiatus Challenge 2018--Round 3 Instant Replay (SPOILERS)

Zugspitze almost put me on the wrong track as the German made me think about whether this was some form of a train and I was trying to think how to get some form of "train" out of Bruges. But, synonyms for train led to funicular (among others) and funicular set off the geography bells. The wheels s...

Re: Summer Hiatus Challenge 2018--Round 2 Instant Replay (SPOILERS)

Now that I see the explanations, I get it; are there any other clues to watch out for, i.e., "frightened" and "messy"? It's a fun category when you know what you're looking for so maybe something to run again towards the end of the challenge?

Re: Summer Hiatus Challenge 2018--Round 2 Instant Replay (SPOILERS)

I think I missed a cultural moment with Black's Friday?? Can't say that I've ever heard of it and only kind of deduced that it must be a song from the clues. So, now I feel particularly old and out of it - thanks! :D

Thanks to just having started The Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie for getting Queen Victoria, and having read The Devil in the White City for getting Chicago (creepy book, that).

I’m very impressed with the high get rate on Palau... congrats to those that got that! Apparently all these Jeopardy! hopefuls are paying attention to the advice to learn those world capitals. I have to admit that I wouldn't have gotten Palau if I hadn't visited on a dive vacation many years ago, b...

Re: Summer Hiatus Challenge 2018--Round 1 Instant Replay (SPOILERS)

Totally misread the African capital question. I was thinking the capitals had to be named for same river, not the countries they are from. Clammed because I couldn't think of city names that would be named for same river, but if I thought countries, I would have gotten that easily. 12 points down t...
