Re: Thursday, February 21, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Coryat: 33,000
44 R/1 W
DD: 2/3
FJ: :mrgreen:
LT: Greek peak week

Several people have mentioned what a value pick Larissa was at #6, but David at #7 is also insane. Having that kind of balance is going to make Team Brad awfully hard to beat.

How in the world was there no reversal on "perfect squares"? That was every bit as legitimate a response as "square roots." I think Rob has a rock-solid case for being invited back, particularly since the next clue chosen was DD3. It sounded to me like there was a tape stoppage at that point. My gu...

Re: Tuesday, February 12, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

For what it's worth, Google shows that the given pattern is referenced as both "Perfect Square Day" and "Square Root Day" by various sources, and the first I found for "Perfect Square Day" was referring to the upcoming 4/4/16, so it definitely predates taping of this episode. Since Perfect Square/S...

If someone mentions apple brown Betty and you don't have a Pavlovian response of "bam-ba-lam," I don't think we can be friends.
Yeah, but the song was "Black Betty." Let get our Bettys (Betties?) straight here. :D
Yeah, but if you make an apple black Betty, you left it in the oven too long.
