Re: Wednesday, March 3, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I had the Chunnel. A chance at a tie-breaker is always fun no matter how it turns out. Glad Melis made the right wager. (Or rather, didn’t make the one really stupid wager). Impressed with her speaking, would not have guessed English is not her native language. Kazakhstan was in the top row above “t...

Re: New old games in the J! Archive

Good thing Regi missed that DD (and that the champ got FJ right anyway). She would have really regretted that wager if she had gotten the DD and had a sole FJ solve. An interesting coincidence given today's game (well, not that exact scenario, but three super timid DD wagers). She gave herself no c...

I liked Mike’s comment about his son. Gave us a little personal insight into the man.

I thought they should have given an example of what the category was about as it seemed to confuse the players. And uppity was a bit unfair as it isn’t a compound word.

OK, how does Philip II rule alongside Bloody Mary as she was long dead by the time of the Spanish Armada? :?: Alternative history. She didn’t die young. If she was still ruling England, there would've been no need to send the Spanish Armada. The Armada was sent to punish Elizabeth for sponsoring pr...

If Bibi crossed my mind, I never would have thought he was in office that long. I had no answer. He wasn't. He was there from 96-99 and then again from 09 to present. I couldn't come up with anyone who made any sense, so I just guessed John Howard of Australia. I tried to think of an Aussie but non...

Re: 2021 Current Events Discussion Thread

We bought a bunch of Suess books when our son (now 23) was young. He kept them in good shape so we saved them to save him money when he has kids. Unfortunately, we lost the whole collection in a tornado in 2018. Mulberry Street is the only one we owned. I may head to a bookstore tomorrow to look for...

Re: Tuesday, March 2, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I get anything is better than a blank screen but those were some bad guesses in FJ. I left my paper blank as nothing came to me. Mandela was my only thought but I knew he was president and not PM and pretty sure he was dead by 2015. (It was 2013). At least I didn’t think Cy Young won Rookie of the Y...

Re: Learned League 88 - Feb/Mar '21

How many got the quilt question here? I was nervous assigning defense. I knew it because I live in Alabama and have heard about the quilting ladies. I just didn’t know if it was widely known or if it could be puzzled out. It seemed to play hard, though not as hard as Joker’s Wild. I live in New Yor...

Re: Poll on Boardies Covid-19 Impact

Well, we are now COVID survivors. I went back to work yesterday (an overnight shift) and got through it. My wife also went back to her job. She drives a school bus so she was worried about being alert for that but she made it fine. Luckily, we never had breathing issues. Just no energy. Neither of u...

Re: Monday, March 1, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Seeing the oldest player win gives me hope of fulfilling my dream. It was a good day to be old with a 1984 TV category and another clue about a classic show from the 1970s and the Space Shuttle. I did miss the top clue in TV when I couldn’t pull Johnson fast enough. I joined the two non-winners with...

Re: New old games in the J! Archive

Glenn leaves off the "What is" here, right? I don't hear it. There is an 's' sound before Easter, though. I think this is similar to other cases: the contestant starts speaking before the broadcasted audio switches off of Alex to the contestant resulting in the "What is" inadvertently cut off. I al...

Re: The Official TPH Education Thread (POTENTIAL GAME DAY SPOILERS)

The fact that it is 2021 and we still have people proposing arguments on this thread to the subject of this thread is mind-boggling to me. It's as if time and history do not exist.
