Re: Friday, September 20, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

DD: 0/3 FJ: :mrgreen: My purpose for being at this week's tapings was to support my boy LanceJ. All day I was hoping he wouldn't have to face off against Jason. Alas, he had to face The Quiet Buzzsaw. If only he had hit that DD asking about his home state. What might have been. On FJ!, I never serio...

Re: Thursday, September 19, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

DD: 1/3 FJ: :mrgreen: I was surprised FJ! wasn't a triple-get. "Extremely popular 3-D toy invented in the mid-70s" screams Rubik's Cube to me. Overall, though, this game I think is a fine exemplar of how great Jason is. Even without uncovering all 3 DD's, he still had a runaway game, and that is an ...

Re: Wednesday, September 18, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

DD: 2/3
FJ: :mrgreen:

Like Jason, I whiffed on chromosphere. As for FJ!, I've never seen/read The Maltese Falcon, but I know Hammett wrote The Thin Man, so I figured he was likely to have had a character named "Fat Man." Certainly more likely than "Little Boy."

DD: 2/3 FJ: :mrgreen: Mixed up the Napoleon islands, but noticed St. Jean Baptiste Day Upon closer inspection, Jason's bet probably wasn't optimal either. Wagering 100 less would have prevented Helen from overtaking him on a triple stumper and guaranteed no less than a tiebreaker if he got it right....

Re: Monday, September 16, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

DD: 3/3
FJ: :(

I was at this week of tapings, so I won't bother with Coryats. I was between Tolstoy and Verne on FJ!, and the coin came up the wrong way.

Alex looked good and sounded strong. Johnny wasn't there at the beginning of the tape day, but he showed up for the afternoon games.

Re: Tuesday, January 15, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I know I'm extremely late to the party on this one, but I was catching up on last season and playing through this game today and I noticed that this game was played entirely top-to-bottom. In particular, DJ! was played top-to-bottom, left-to-right. Anybody (I guess I'm talking most to cheezguyty) kn...

Re: LL82: LearnedLeague

How are others finding this season difficulty-wise? Right now I'm up about 50 points on my historical QPct, so it's been easier than normal for me. Unfortunately my poor defense has left me mired in the bottom half of my rundle. I'm up about 50 points over my last two seasons. OTOH, LL as a whole i...

Is it just me or did Tabitha say "trawling" instead of "trolling" and should have been ruled incorrect? She did say "trawling," but the terms are interchangeable . I thought that trawling was with a net and trolling was with a line. I think the clue said line. Looks like you're right. Having listen...

Re: LL82: LearnedLeague

I'm curious about people who got Fill or Kill. Did you just guess? Did you know it? I consider myself very well versed in finance and I don't think I have ever heard that phrase before (but I don't deal with trading admittedly). No way I'd have gotten it if not for my investments course back in bus...

I'm so glad to see Jason keep winning.

Really surprised this wasn't a triple get. 1900 + Midwestern state + gem is a lot of TOM.

Anybody say Toast of the Town for FJ? Alex read out that original title in giving the correct response, indicating that would have been accepted too, even though it became The Ed Sullivan Show in 1955. I considered it but figured that even if that were still the show's name at the time, TPTB would ...

Jason shows once again that J! is all about 1) buzzer timing, 2) finding and converting DDs, 3) wagering, and 4) solving FJ!

I think I would have had FJ! easily regardless of whether the clue included the day of the week.

Glad to see my boy Jason tearing it up. Not a great game for me, but a solve on a TS FJ! feels nice. Surprised more people haven't heard of "Goliath of Gath."

Re: A question about Coryat scoring...

That makes sense, but how are these scores "normally" determined? If you're watching and somebody rings in and knows it, you may have known it given an extra few seconds, but it becomes irrelevant once the answer is known. I know most questions are either you know it or you don't, but things like w...
