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

Ran the Spanish and Brand Name categories, along with Metaphors in DJ! Saw no way to figure out "Heaven" in Bestsellers for $200, or Nixon in Career for $400. NHO Biscayne Bay to my knowledge , which I thought was an obscure path to Miami for the top box. Country with the most tornados? Well, that ...

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

The chapter and the rest of the book repeatedly refer to him as "the fat man". I don't know about the A-bomb being named after him. I also don't know of any other Hammett ch...

that metal category was a joke...all easy and not even sure if def leppard, twisted sister and motley crue are even considered metal anymore I predicted this post as I was watching the show. I agree.

DD sniping can really change things, can't it? Surprisingly I bombed the Verbs category. The clues were just weren't breaking my way at all.

I guessed Dickens for lack of anything better (never mind that he had been dead for 30 years at that point :? ). Can someone walk me through the thinking that leads to Tolstoy?
