I like this one because I was able to figure it out.

Pedantry alert: Procter, not Proctor.
I'll go ahead and blame autocorrect :roll:

Re: TD 448 - 42 [Final results]

Thank you for hosting clt013 and great game floridagator! I wish I could have had more free time to analyze this one, but it still would have taken a herculean effort and lots of luck to beat a 16. I'll assume I lost because I forgot to put "13" at the end of my name on the answer sheet :D Looking f...

Re: TD 448 - 42 [Q1-Q5 revealed]

Yeah... politics...

Considering Florida was the only one I knew, I actually considered taking what was essentially a 50/50 shot at a random state, since I saw California, Texas, and New York weren't part of the list.

I'll take my sheep and my slice of humble pie...

Re: Roger Craig's trivia triumph app

Sorry to dig up an old thread, but I was wondering if anyone has heard about this coming out yet? I'm assuming the unforseen circumstances that have happened since his announcement have affected progress, but I was wondering if Roger has shared any news on Twitter or any other social media platform ...

Re: TD 447 - Grab Bag (Final Standings)

Thank you very much theearruda, and great job hosting!

I certainly left the door open for Gamawire or Leander to pass me with a 7 on the last two questions, but fortune favored me there. Great game everyone.

:mrgreen: :( :( :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :| Had to play off archives on Tuesday, said Fillmore just to have something Fleming on Wednesday Talk shows and their hosts/networks are not my speciality Definitely played all 190, a few episodes didn't air because of storm warnings.

Re: Wednesday, June 10, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Shucks...
I thought I had a stone-cold lead pipe lock on FJ with Alexander Fleming. Upon reveal that I was wrong, I figured the years must not have made sense, and sure enough, Fleming was born the year of the Clue's publication.
I won't be forgetting that fact now.

Re: Monday, June 8, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Anyone else say "blacken" instead of "brown" in COLORS for $600?

I can't imagine it's acceptable since the clue gave the actual definition.

Re: TD 446 - Random Trivia Quiz - Final Scores

I was worried for a bit that Lech Walesa was going to sheep and I was gonna blow it at the end, but ya'll know so many more people of Polish heritage than I do, and it all evened out. Either way, I'll take a clean game with no sheep and 3 singletons. Thank you very much for hosting Peachbox, this wa...

Yep, that Final is one of those "If you're gonna be on the show, this is a nugget they like to use and should know"

If it wasn't for me overthinking Monday, I'd be sitting at 4/4 for the week.

Re: Wednesday, June 3, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

DD3 might have worked better as an FJ. I only got it by pausing playback and thinking through the parts. Louis XIV --> Sun King + "fittingly" + "mother of this Roman god" --> who was Apollo's mother? Wait, her name's already in the clue. Latona, right? They're giving me that. They just want who she...

I've looked it over and over for the last few minutes, and I see no problem with my answer, so I will come to you judges for a ruling:

Particle accelerator for Large Hadron Collider?

I see no hint that they were looking for the specific CERN collider, but just "this device" that it is...
