Re: Thursday, May 28, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I was wondering if they'd ding Mary Kate for saying St. Jude's instead of St. Jude, especially with the recent Revelations/Revelation. Guess it was good enough :D.

Re: Friday, February 28, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

On one hand, it kinda' sucks when you're wrong in FJ! for not being specific enough, since you don't really get a chance to be more specific. On the other hand, it didn't matter today anyway.

I guess I feel a little better that all three contestants were as completely clueless as I was for FJ! :lol:

Poet laureate crossed my mind, but I dismissed it because "artistic" made me think they were going for, well, an artist title. Probably my fault for putting too much stock into that one word.

What was the wording of the interplanetary clue? I thought there might be a reversal with transplanetary.

Re: Wednesday, January 29, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

That was the hardest FJ! in a spell. Even if you memorized all the Oscar winners, that's still a lot to think through in 30 seconds, and if you don't have every Oscar winner memorized, it's nigh impossible.

"How the heck am I supposed to know which territory drives on the left?!" I just kinda' picked a territory at random... and somehow picked the right one! Oh well, I'll take it :lol:.

Re: Thursday, January 16, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

This was one of those where the FJ answer was so obvious that I was concerned there might be some quirk of geography that actually rendered it incorrect (like how Reno being further west than Los Angeles is non-intuitive to non-locals). I went with Panama City, but I too was wondering if that answe...

For FJ! I went with acrylic painting. I totally misunderstood what the clue was asking for.

Re: Tuesday, November 26, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

The most surprising thing to me wasn't that FJ! was a triple stumper (still surprising though), but that none of the contestants even came up with a phrase with two one-syllable words. I'm a bit confused by that.

Jeremiahd? I've never heard that word in my life. I suppose that's my fault for trying to solve it from that half of the clue instead of the "longest book" half. I tried to get something out of diatribe, and just settled on Deuteronomy for being sorta' like that.

Re: Monday, November 4, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Thought I heard Kyle say “tress” instead of “truss” for tying up the chicken. The CC had "trussed" and I went with that in figuring the show workers with 20/20 hearing would neg if necessary if it had been "tressed" or "tress." If Kyle wants to post that he "got away with one" then that would be an...

Wait, isn't a turnip jack-o-lantern still a jack-o-lantern? ...well, Google says yes. I actually thought jack-o-lantern was the trap in that clue, since a jack-o-lantern isn't necessarily a pumpkin, so pumpkin, which does have to be a pumpkin, had to be right... and it was wrong :P. On the other han...

Re: Monday, October 21, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

When the category was revealed, my brother jokingly answered our home town, knowing it was too obscure to possibly be the answer. We kinda' joked about that when the real answer was revealed. "What the heck is Leadville?" A quick Google search reveals... it's a random obscure town. My brother's rand...

I assume "dulcet" is a no-go on Speak Softly for $600? FWIW, I also said "dulcet" I also had "dulcet" A fourth for dulcet And baby makes five! I'm taking points away from everyone because dulcet does not sync with the category, SPEAK SOFTLY. Hushed, muted, murmur and what were the other two? I also...

Re: Friday, October 11, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Considering that "Paul Simon" was the correct response for a FJ clue earlier this week, it would've felt odd to have two FJ clues with that last name as the correct question in the same week. It seems like it'd be more strange if sharing a last name by itself would be consciously avoided, without a...
