Re: Monday, September 16, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

FJ came quick. My thought process was: "Hmm, dude that wrote War and Peace" -> "That would be Victor Hugo" -> done.

D'oh!

If only I had taken the remaining 27 seconds to review my work instead of sitting there smugly...

Re: Thursday, September 12, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

This is mighty small nit I'm picking here, but the way I parsed FJ they were asking for the name of the museum that had two words added to it. To me, that would be The National Air Museum. The accepted response of National Air and Space Museum doesn't make sense to add two words to because then it w...

Re: TPH's FJ! analysis

In FJ (assuming a non-zero wager) the penalty for getting it wrong and not answering at all are the same. There's been many times that you've indicated you couldn't come up with something and an equal number of times that we've told you to just take a guess anyways. My suggestion is that when the ne...

Between the title track and "Life in the Fast Lane", HC seemed like a no-brainer to me. But then, the album was released during my formative years.

Can someone research the get rate for tie-breaker clues? I've only seen a handful but my recollection is that they have all been fairly easy and they reduce to a buzzer speed competition.

Re: Monday, July 8, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Ironically got FJ because I precalled the correct city, despite totally mis-parsing the clue. My brain thought the 50th anniversary pinned a date to 1592. Derp!

Re: Tuesday, July 2, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Jerry, but aware of jury and wondered which was the "correct" response. Anagrams: I am great at wordplay but consistently get my butt kicked by contestants ringing in before I formulate a response. Today I finally figured out a technique that works for me: ignore all the verbiage in the clue and imm...

I was completely unaware of this thread or how the board is funded, and I assume there are other people similarly unaware. Can we make it a sticky?

Re: TD 425: O-H-I-O (Questions 1-8 Revealed)

I'm curious if you would've accepted "Spider-Man: Into the Spiderverse" as an acceptable response for Q5. I was tempted but realized I did not have a strong argument to back me up. Is there an "official" list of MCU films?

Re: Monday, July 1, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I, too, got hung up on Micronesia. I spent way too many of the 30 seconds wondering if I was misspelling it somehow. Then I flailed around with some of the other guesses mentioned: Greenland, Oceania, Antartica etc. none of which satisfied. I could've done without the Africa comparison but don't thi...

Edit to standings coming this afternoon - just discovered a form that was submitted before I began the reveal, so will adjust previous posts accordingly.
Thanks! I was going to say something but after I saw Q2 revealed and realized my mistake I thought I was probably better off on the sidelines.

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 ...

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...
