As much as I'd love to bribe you, I think you made the right call there :(

Greek mythology pairs. That narrows it down. A pair that might fight? Phobos and Deimos, sons of the god of war. 3/3 for the week.

Now people who are listening late to the newest episode of Complete the List will be wondering why there wasn't a reference to Philip Roth's recent passing.
Probably not. Most people understand that episodes are taped in advance.

Russian author who died (and was probably killed by someone else) would have to be Pushkin. 2/2 for the week

Famous armory evokes Harpers Ferry. A quick check on the second part (yep, near Maryland and Virginia considering I visited Monocacy in MD and Harpers Ferry in WV in the same day and stayed in VA that night). Locked in.

I made the plumbum = lead + lumb = back connection, but I still couldn't finish the answer having never heard lumbago or plumbago.

Menelaus was the key for me here. I had some trouble parsing the second half of the clue, but I remembered Menelaus's connection with the Trojan War which gave me Trojan Horse, and the second half of the clue confirmed this.

Arabic, Chinese, English, French, Russian, Spanish The only confusion could be what one would consider cursive, but even that wasn't too hard. I've written in a non-cursive form in three of these, and Cyrillic and Chinese are certainly both disconnected, so by process of elimination we're left with ...

Re: Monday, May 14, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

Overthought the final. I've read GWTW, but when the clue said "monarch" instead of "king" I took that as code for a queen and matched Steve's Charlotte.

Better clue today: the final gave the very situation for a pocket veto. I'll take 3/5 in a tough week.

Is it just me or have the FJs this tournament been extra tough?
Given a get rate of 3/12 so far, that's true empirically. So far I've only missed Monday's.
I missed Monday and today, but they've also seemed to have much less of a TOM.

What would have been built with a thatched roof? Famously destroyed in a fire and rebuilt? Likely not used anymore for much besides being a novelty landmark? Got it.

Re: Monday, May 7, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

Really tough final. Almost no TOM to get to the right city other than a mention of a film and a weak connection to its namesake. A little more on either of those ends (such as a mention of the Wells-Fargo logo) could have gone a long way towards a solve. My bid for another 1.000 tournament is over b...
