Re: Friday, September 21, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Surprised at the triple whiff on FJ. A Eurasian country = Turkey ---> gem/color that sounds like Turkey. QED.

(That's based on an understanding that a Eurasian country is one situated in/on both continents - which could be a completely faulty, but in this case serendipitous, premise).

Re: Summer Hiatus Challenge 2018--Round 4 Instant Replay (SPOILERS)

Just realized that from seeing The Prisoner of Zenda on TCM listings yesterday (it was Stewart Granger day) - I had "Zenda" instead of "Zelda" on my brain.

D'oh!

Re: Summer Hiatus Challenge 2018--Round 4 Instant Replay (SPOILERS)

Apparently I am one of a select group who have never read or even wanted to read a Harry Potter book or see one of the films. Do I give in to be literate in popular culture or hope to live long enough to be the only holdout? Hard to answer this one; if you don't like fantasy books, you're probably ...

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?
