Alas, missing the "wandered" TOM on DD1 put her in too deep a hole to climb out of. I should recognize Clyde Tombaugh's name by now, particularly given that I learned earlier this ...

Re: Wednesday, October 10, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

For the wristwatch/smartwatch controversy, I'd say that "wristwatch" would need a BMS since the clue said the watch name had the word "connected" in it.
