Re: Wednesday, July 17, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Oh no worries man, I totally understand why you did that, I just found it to be pretty funny. I'd much rather people bet $4,000 consistently on DD's then make wimpy bets like $1,000 or less on them anyway. After James's amazing run I've been spoiled by all the gutsy wagers, but I still understand w...

Re: Wednesday, July 17, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Great job, Roey! It was a no-doubter, and I'm glad that Sam's 'stache run didn't end on a mistake. Not to curse you retro-actively, but your buzzer skills and installed database look like long run potential. I wondered why Alex asked your age right off the bat - nice story. My late brothers called m...

Re: Tuesday, July 16, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

When Alex said "JJ's gonna be able to put a lot of pressure on Sam, and she's excited about that." Oh, the sweetness of that moment. Thank you for sharing that 8-) . It seems like Alex has been making more comments about the gameplay lately. You may not have won against a tough champ, but you showe...

6 more hours to wait before I can watch my game. :) I hope you had a great watch party. You were a joy to watch play. It's great when players join in to share their experiences. By now you've caught up on the 32 games of mayhem that preceded your taping but you ran into a very tough champion. Great...

Surprised This Machine Kills Fascists was a TS. FWIW, I was 80% sure that was the correct response, but if was wrong I would have dropped to 31200, giving Christina a chance to get it and rise to 15600, taking away the runaway chance. It just wasn't worth that risk. Wow! That is some clutch analysi...

Re: Monday, July 15, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

It was interesting to hear Alex mention the rarity of a DD in the top box. I don't know that we've ever heard it acknowledged on the show before that the DDs are not randomly distributed. I had the same reaction - almost like he was encouraging a big wager. NHO Shirley Jackson. Don't like fiction, ...

Re: 2019 TOC Updates

Another point of view - Emma cleared the machine gun nest that basically kept 66 people from even getting a whiff of a TOC invite. She is just getting to proxy for Lewis Black or one of the other players (I know there were a couple other good ones) that likely would have grabbed the next slot. If sh...

It was an interesting tussle. Sam and the liquor lawyer traded punches while Rachel was in a coma. Then she busts loose and has the lead after SJ. And then, pulls into a tie near the end and has the com. Two (or was it three?) stand and stares down the goofy "lieder" category and she KEEPS GOING TO ...

This is why band students put their woodwinds and horns under the bed the day they finish their last Redundancy. A woodwind is a type of horn. Not to distract from the talking point about all those wasted clarinets, trumpets, and saxes, but I don't find any redundancy and only a hint of ambiguity. ...

I remember seeing "Father Christmas Gets Diarrhea After Eating Biscuits" as a mnemonic for the order of sharps in a key signature. The "potassium" one didn't trigger for me since for some reason, "potassium" is one of those "two of one letter, one of the other letter" words that hasn't ever given m...

Great job, Sam! Ryan, you was good against some adverse game situations, but Sam executed perfectly. I didn't get the Margaret Hamilton reference at first, but suspected she was the WWOW. Nice of Alex not to Curious if ANYONE missed the "Every Good Boy" mnemonic? Not a poll request, just chime in if...

Re: Tuesday, July 9, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

What was wrong with Hannah’s wager? Her score was lower than Ryan’s MSBIW score, so she had to improve her score to win. Yes, she could have bet differently and accomplished the same goal, but I don’t think it was a horrible bet. Much better than zero. ...but she did bet zero. She had to improve he...

But IMO, bad move to admit a weakness in any category to your incoming opponents. It is almost impossible that this could be consequential. There is only one match left in the taping day - it is guaranteed they will not go there in FJ again the next day. By next week, all new contestants, clueless ...
