Re: Monday, September 18, 2017 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

Before I watched the show last night, I was at a group event and we were talking about Old Testament names. We noticed that there were a lot of "-iah" names, so I wanted to look up the significance really quickly.

The name I chose? Obadiah. Imagine my joy when I saw the FJ question.

Re: Monday, September 12, 2016 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

The FJ! category had me brainstorming islands of Japan, Indonesia and the Philippines with Hong Kong thrown in for good measure. Hong Kong is a combination of an archipelago and a peninsula, though. Instaget FJ for me, ensuring that I won't start off season 33 with an 0-5 FJ week. :) Am I the only ...

Re: LL70: For the LLamas

I am hesitant as a rule to call shenanigans, but unless Kalevala is a staple of the quizbowl circuit or something, some of those get rates look suspiciously high to me. I've been to Finland and several Finnish friends and have NHOI. And what gives with Midlands C1? A bunch of Suomi there? I actuall...

Re: Monday, September 12, 2016 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

44R, 5W (1/3 on DDs); Coryat: 33k

Picked up some trash on: Dept of Labor, Auburn, Panama, October, Budweiser, Dylan Thomas, and Finnegan's Wake Forest

Final was an instaget. I remember the tsunami and the name "Phuket" wasn't leaving my mind.

Good game to start the season off.

Re: LL70: For the LLamas

Oof! My failure to take heed of the hint on Q1 cost me a tie. I did the literal translation and put little dog waltz, which rang no bells, but whatevs. On balance, however, it made up for a 50/50 on Q6. (with Sondheim) and a lucky get with Who's the Boss, TV not being a particular strength of mine....

Re: LL69: for the LLama Drama

In what has to be one of the greatest upsets in LL history, I defeated my previously-undefeated A-rundle opponent 2(2)-1(2) on MD5 in Mystery Themes; going into the match, he was 4-0 and had answered 23 questions correctly through the first four match days, while I only had 2 correct answers. On MD...
