Re: Thursday, February 15, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

On the other hand, mentioning that Togo West was a former Army lieutenant was a perfect TOM for a DD. Meanwhile, I was trying to figure out if there was a cabinet department involved in "going west"... For FJ, I precalled 47 Ronin, then remembered that was quite a bit after the medieval era (I thin...

Re: Learned League 75 - Official Thread

Playing along with the Barbershop 1DS, I'm a little surprised at how hard Q10 played (I knew it without the audio, having never played the game, but I think another recent-ish clue made me notice how few LLamas seem to be aware of blockbuster video games), and I'm shocked at the get rate on Q11. I m...

Nice pull on Dixon Hill! I couldn't have come up with that. I gave the correct holodeck response even though I was momentarily distracted by Trebek's failure to pronounce the final d in "Picard". I don't know French at all, so I'm not sure if that pronunciation makes sense. I just know it's NOT the...

Re: Monday, February 12, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

I had a similar "let's make it too complicated" moment with one of the fedora clues. All they wanted was "holodeck" but I went past that and spent my time trying to dredge up "Dixon Hill," the character Picard liked to role-play with the fedora on the holodeck. Wasn't able to recall the name until ...

Can anyone tell me the J!6 clue for the Eurovision category? I was really hoping they'd get through all those clues, and I got all the ones we saw. I thought maybe there would be a clue about Lordi or Conchita Wurst. I clammed on the home improvement store because although the "home" in the clue mad...

Johns Hopkins on Thursday. Even if I'd remembered that the CDC HQ is in Atlanta (from various board games and works of fiction), I never knew that Emory has a famous medical school... or what state it's in.

Luckily, in an FK where you only have to write down two letters to get it right, you can have more than one response written down and cross off the wrong one and get it right.
Good point. What are the odds of someone misspelling two letters? ;)

So the contestants don't watch football. Big deal. How much time should they have devoted to preparing for this category? If they didn't know this stuff already, how many months of study would it take to get them up to speed? I would advise any prospective contestant not to bother. You will get far...

I'm gonna miss getting to say "The airport?" during the contestant intros every day. I tried attacking this FJ from the Guthrie angle first, but couldn't think of a Rodgers work relating to California or New York (not saying there aren't any). Once I switched, it came to me quickly.

Yes, it's not hard to find references to Wells' "open marriage." On the other hand, it's not hard to find explanations of the difference between the Italian greyhound and the whippet. I guess the judges decided they are so close it's not fair to ask someone to tell them apart with a picture... Or w...

I got stuck trying to think of writers from that time. Maybe if I'd tried thinking of artists, Van Gogh might have occurred to me.

Then right after this episode, I watched last night's The Amazing Race...
