Re: Thursday, June 13, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Refreshing chemistry among the contestants. They were loose and seemed to be having fun. "It's the Mexican name for the Rio Grande." Wait, isn't "Rio Grande" already a Spanish term? Why would they call it something else when it already HAS a Spanish name?! Same here - thought they were trying to be ...

Re: Wednesday, June 12, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Wow is it frustrating knowing and picturing the correct answer in your brain, only to draw a blank on the object’s actual name. Got that right! The wheels just could not turn fast enough to give me the name.. really mad at myself for botching this one. Yep, same here. I thought the clue was a littl...

Re: Season 36 Changes & Predictions

Any time a player hits a DD and says "I've always wanted to say this Alex..." a trap door opens under their feet.

Re: Friday, May 31, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I too wandered through the Barrymore clan for a short while before rejecting it. It seemed obvious that the noms had to be for some sort of supporting activity, which led me to composers which led me to Newman. But I kept hemming and hawing and exploring other possibilities and never actually commit...

Re: Thursday, May 23, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I don't think Nate had enough information to elevate James to the "one of the best ever" category. There is no question whatsoever that it's time to break out the nuclear "what if I end up playing against the next Ken Jennings?" strategy that every player should have spent a few minutes thinking ab...

Re: Thursday, May 23, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I'll go on record as saying Nate's DD bet was just about right. He was dominating on the buzzer and a nice built up lead from SJ. A potentially hard (it was very hard IMHO) 2K question. If he misses it, he still has a pathway to reach FJ with a lead. 50/50 odds that someone else finds the DD3, and ...

nobody else wondering why they allowed the 1000 wager when he said all in and only had 200? Allowed it? I'd wager Dave doesn't know much about gambling, but I think his intentions (if not his "boss's") were carried out... I disagree. I think they need to take the contestant as literally as possible...

Yes, another Good Grief here. While we, the reader/viewer, may refer to Linus' blanket as a security blanket, I do not recall his fellow characters calling it such - at least not very often. Whereas Good Grief occurs regularly. I'm not saying the clue is flawed but perhaps it could have been reworde...

Count me as another who precalled AS and Socrates, then immediately discarded Socrates based on the earlier Plato clue.

Every single peson who has responded about this has told you exactly the opposite. It's not super obscure, it's not remotely obscure. I disagree. For a trivia devotee it is not obscure but for a "normal" person I think it is quite obscure. But as someone making the trek from the latter to the forme...

Started trying to figure how to phrase GoFundMe as a practice, made a jump to crowdsourcing with about 15 seconds to go and then another jump to crowdfunding close to time expiring.

37 off the video (vs 32 for real on the Tuesday test). Physics, science, biology, chemistry? Yes please! Man, that Florida test was easy. 100% agree.

Since at this point we are just making stuff up, I'll throw this out there: I would not be surprised if the site was created by someone in the professional betting community.
