Re: HQ Trivia

I got two wrong on HQ today, missing the island (extra life spent) and the baseball team (knockout). My dad knew the baseball question right away. I missed last night's game - what was the baseball question? I don't have the exact wording on me, but it asked which franchise did NOT start out as the...

Re: Wednesday, May 16, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

First Communion, for 8 year olds, would not qualify. A rite of passage could be passing from any life stage into a subsequent one. Retirement, graduation, first job, first kid, first alcoholic drink, and First Communion might all be rites of passage, but one only comes of age one time. While it use...

Re: Friday, May 11, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

Now THIS is the kind of FJ I expect in a Teachers' Tournament. Too bad about Ranjani, I was hoping she'd pull out the win after running Shakespeare and coming up with "syzygy". But IIRC, she mispronounced "syzygy", did she not? Hard 'g' instead of a soft 'g', but still meets the show rules. OK. I w...

I couldn't get going on FJ. I ended up saying Pullman just on the off chance there was a movie about Pullman, WA I'd never heard of.
Same here. I'm certainly not a movie buff.

Fargo, though, what an interesting movie :)

No doubt. I hear ya. I wonder if the baseball question would have a different set of answers had it been this week, now that Ichiro has been released and apparently is retiring.

G. Dolly Parton - 4 Sims A surefire combination--don't mess with it! ;) I almost went with the Gene Autry song for this question.

I played yesterday for the first time in several weeks. The game was hosted by the Rock and was plugging his new movie.
Same with me. I made it to Q12 (out of 15). There were 83 winners sharing a $300,000 prize. Each winner left with $3,600 and change!

Re: TD 372 - CLASSIC AREA CODES 4xx (FINAL RESULTS)

4th place, I'd say that's more like it for me. But it really isn't. I am surprised that this TD is the first one where I have cracked the Top 10, let alone the Top 5. Are cumulative scores for the Area Code TDs being posted as we go along? If so, I've missed them. Thanks for all your work on these!

Re: TD 371 - CLASSIC AREA CODES 3xx (309 & 312 REVEALED)

How disgusted I am with myself. Apparently I wrote down Museum of Science & History although I clearly know that building's name and on my scoresheet that I keep, I wrote it down correctly. So instead of an actual low score on a question (2), I get an 18 for incorrect. :lol: So through 10 questions,...

Re: TD 370 - CLASSIC AREA CODES 2xx (FINAL RESULTS)

In addition to best overall score for these area cods TD's (thanks for putting these on!); can we also keep track of who had the most sheep? If so, I'm finally toward the top of a list, with seven (three of them being co-sheeps) :lol:

CLT, thanks for hosting these! It seems we share many of the same interests (born 1974 here, in Illinois, huge sports fan, I'm a Seahawks fan since the days of Steve Largent and Jim Zorn so I should have gotten the 12 seconds answer since it equates to the 12th Man, etc.).

I just played for the first time. Here are some observations. The blonde lady who hosted was annoying. Are all the hosts that bad?

Re: HQ Trivia

Out of curiosity, how long do these games take to play? Depending on technological glitches, anywhere from 15-30 min. I gave up on it pretty quickly for this reason. There are 12 questions and they give you a 10 second timer to respond to each question. The game takes 20 minutes. They certainly str...
