Re: Thursday, April 15, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Can any boardies divulge their secret to getting this? I can't keep Onyx, Agate, and Opal straight, but the Onyx I've seen is amazingly beautiful. If anybody has a trick I'll second the request for secrets. I made a memory palace for birthstones and zodiac signs. Doesn't work perfectly but I can li...

Re: Thursday, April 15, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

46R. 4/4 on big clues. F=d(mv)/dt. Missed the clue about the serial killer on film and a robot builder in Westworld . Guessed Ed Harris. Writers had it penned to Anthony Hopkins with Welshman. I like that clue. I got the Foot-candle clue with no problem. Whenever I see that unit I laugh at it. It's ...

Looks Like they took the next one Down to replace Brayden. I was wondering if they were gonna Take Zach or Not Honestly. W...

Re: Wednesday, April 14, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

...Othello was not the longest play but had the character with the most lines. According to that FJ, Othello has the non-title character (Iago) with the most lines; Hamlet is still the longest play, and he has the most lines. According to this, Richard in Richard III has more lines than Hamlet: htt...

44R. 3/4 on big clues. Missed FJ with Othello. I was reminded of the FJ from this game: https://www.j-archive.com/showgame.php?game_id=6527 The longest Shakespeare play was discussed in some extra footage commentary. That FJ was about the non-title Shakespeare character with the most lines and James...

46R. 3/4 on big clues. Couldn't decide between Sagittarius and Orion and picked the wrong one. The Horsehead Nebula was the only nebula I could think of and I failed to remember what constellation it was in. It's not the one in the sword they were referring to but it's in Orion. Did poorly in TITLE ...

37R. 3/4 on big clues. Didn't get Vicksburg. Thought about Zion first and then I re-read the clue and couldn't pull anything. Lots of stuff for me to learn this game. I wrote a nearly identical FJ clue in the FJ clue thread here about a week or two ago. Except I messed up and forgot about Germany an...

43R. 3/4 on big clues. I immediately wrote Watership Down . The version I own has a farm and a rabbit on the cover. At least I think it's a farm. Real hard to get that out of my head. https://i.imgur.com/piZ5u0U.png Missed Horus and said Set. I need to review Egyptian mythology. I did very poorly on...

Re: Reretaken Down

Sporcle probably has 100 different world capitals quizzes with different formats and layouts. You might be able to find one better suited for what you’re trying to do. I usually use Google to search for Sporcle quizzes and not their website if I’m trying to find something specific. I switched from S...

I think the clue about The Big Nickel might have been an homage to Alex Trebek.

Sudbury, Ontario (Greater Sudbury) has come up a couple times on the show or on J6! now.

Edit: The Big Nickel is 2-3 miles away from where Alex Trebek went to high school. If I read Wikipedia right.

46R. 2/4 on big clues. Couldn't pull Porthos. Had Buenos Aires and Brasilia. I started second guessing Brasilia because it was inland but didn't try to change it. I've been pronouncing marque (as in letters of marque) with two syllables. Glad to know better now. Some clues that I missed that I want ...

Would have missed Piper by saying Lear on the rebound. The name is Learjet (OK, fine, it's Bombardier Learjet), not Lear. Lear doesn't do airplanes. Ah, thanks. I think I was mixing something up. It's worth knowing there are two completely separate companies Lear and Learjet (subsidiary of Bombardi...

40R. 2/4 on big clues. I didn't actually get Kabul in time but I'm sure I would have and I'm counting it. Missed The Producers and said Cabaret . The use of the song Where Did We Go Right? made sense right afterwards. Wrote down Ma Barker for FJ. If I had thought of Lizzie Borden I would have put th...

44R. 3/4 on big clues. I wonder if anyone on the boards matched my wrong FJ to match Erin's. It's famous history near here. In 1901, Teddy was in the Adirondacks when McKinley was shot. He was staying there, and eventually began a frantic midnight trip to Buffalo. I never considered that "cabin" ref...
