Re: Thursday, April 19, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

Overzealous fast forwarding spoiled the results of FJ as I could see it was a TS. But I did not see the responses, so I could still play along. I was prepared for a toughie, but I got it pretty quickly. I guess it helps if you know it was established during the Civil War. It is on land once owned by...

Re: Wednesday, April 18, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

I thought Alex's comment was in reaction to this thread. https://jboard.tv/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=4639 It was funny when the Georgia Tech guy got the clue about the lyrics to Alabama's fight song. Bama and Tech were in the same conference for many years and were bitter rivals. Tech left the SEC in 1964...

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

As I said in the game thread, I thought it was set in England. But the date left me with only one choice.

For some reason I always thought it was British, but I had no other guess so I got it right.

Re: Fun with GSN's "Winsanity"

I am right there with you in having at least three right without taking a breath. Playing along here, I went 5/5, but I wouldn't have needed more than two turns to get it right no matter what.

Instead of thinking about immortal warriors, think about a kid who survived some crazy high-failure experiment his mom tried.
I didn't know that part of the Achilles story though, that there were failed attempts before him.
Neither did I. But I still got FJ right.

Re: POLL: A Hypothesis about Auditions

I was suggesting something slightly different--not picking the players based on a game's questions, but picking the questions based on the players, or a player. I am certain that they know by now how they could get rid of me as a contestant if I was not going over well with the TV audience. (Perhap...

Re: POLL: A Hypothesis about Auditions

They do not want to go to jail and have their cash machine shut down. The games are honest.

I once knew a guy who was certain Wheel was rigged because the wheel would suddenly slow down. I guess the concept of editing out things never occurred to him.

I didn’t know anything about his family, but the bit about his mother wanting to make him immortal made it obvious.

Rebecca’s slip-up on heart/kidney gave away the lead. Then her all-in bet on FJ gave Jordan a chance to win.

I misunderstood the clue to mean only one State was named for a woman and Virginia was the first to come to mind so I didn’t spend any time trying to think of another state. Oh, well.

Never heard of Harry’s museum. I wonder if Carsen got hung up on the palace in going with Versailles.

I went with the obvious and was home free.

Don’t you speak Spanish? The Spanish word for rice is arroz, which is fairly close to oryza.

Do I have a historical blindspot, or was that Lucy Hayes clue quite difficult? The only way most know her name is from the "Lemonade Lucy" sobriquet. I'd say it's one notch easier than the most obscure First Ladies. That’s how I got it. I didn’t even pay attention to the rest of the clue beyond “Ha...

Re: LearnedLeague 76 - Official Thread

We were only docked in Victoria for the afternoon. So our touring was limited to walking around the city. We thought it was very pretty. I do recall seeing the capitol building (or some sort of government building) while on our stroll.

For years I watched every Braves game on TV and watched the playoffs and followed the game in general. But I haven’t watched any in several years. I couldn’t tell you who any of the top players are. Part of that is due to lifestyle changes. But the game has changed for me. Interleague play has ruine...

I bet Thatcher wishes he could have been on yesterday with the baseball category. But I think he is in good shape for a wild card.

Instaget FJ here. Keep up the US History FJs and I just might go 10/10.
