Re: TD 421 - Short and Sweet

Is a wrong answer elimination or a penalty? If you did a penalty of +100 it would lead to a secondary contest between "eliminated" players.

3. One wrong answer eliminates you from the game.
What about the bonus question?

I got 40 right. Maybe a few less for spelling. I'll take the test officially on Thursday since I won't have to rush home from work.

Re: Monday, March 25, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Is there any reason "ciao" wouldn't be accepted instead of "adieu?" "How Frere Jacques would customarily say" probably suffices to pin it to a French-origin response. I suppose a contestant could argue that they personally know a French friar named Jacques who is in the habit [edit: no pun intended...

I couldn't come up with Alan Shepard but that's embarrassing and so I'm sure I won't miss it again. I learned the difference between pictograms, lexigrams, and hieroglyphics. For some reason I thought hieroglyphics were any sort writing using pictures but it's only the ancient Egyptian system. Is th...

I missed with Sam Shepard. How do people here prefer to acquire their knowledge about plays and playwrights? Do you watch plays in a theater, watch a recording, read the play, or something else? I tried to watch some recordings but the quality wasn't great. Any suggestions for enjoyable ways to stud...

I didn't know that Freud was an inspiration for surrealism. That seems kind of weird to me but it's a good opportunity to learn. I picked Einstein based on the 1938 date. I have Freud associated with late-1800s and didn't realize he was a viable option for a 1930s clue. I did really poorly on tonigh...

I'm usually excited to learn new things but tonight I learned the correct pronunciation of "Quixotic" and continued ignorance would be preferred. Most things called out as "neg-bait" are mislabeled but the clue with Amy and Jonah was definitely neg-bait for Superstore. Superstore is a popular prime ...

Re: The crisis in TDs

I’ve been skipping a lot of TDs recently because I’ve been very busy with things and haven’t had any time. I think the quality of TDs has been great and I wouldn’t change anything. The TDs you host are especially good. I wasn’t a huge fan of Morbeedo’s mini-TDs because I would miss one question and ...

I guessed Picard and missed that clue. The Wayside Inn made me hesitate because it was after the "Way" category but I got it. I missed San Diego and guessed San Juan Capistrano for the California city where Juan sailed.

Thanks for making this TD. There were a lot of good questions with a lot of variety and it was fun to play.
