Re: Friday, September 21, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

How about blue gems? Sapphire! Hmm that doesn't sound like any country does it? </tympani> [/quote] I spent maybe 3.4 seconds with "Sapphire? Sappho? Wait, that's a person, and the island she was from wasn't a country anyway." Then I whiffed with topaz, wondering if Topkapi and topaz might come from...

Re: TD 394 - MINI-TD #2 - Q5 RESULTS

“Azkaban” being a singleton is a crowning achievement in double-bluffing. Yup, and that player was eliminated, so no advantage there Hey! I can hear you, you know. Haha, a well earned singleton. Sorry you misunderstood the Internet question "Misunderstood." Um.... sure. We'll go with that. Far kind...

"Unbelievable" was the first song played on the season finale of Beat Shazam a few moments ago. :lol: ETA: Now "Slide" by the Goo Goo Dolls came up in the final round. These writers must be psychics. Kyle is an alarmingly consistent player and his run has been enjoyable to watch, congrats on magic ...

Re: Tuesday, September 11, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Nobody else has mentioned Tom Lehrer yet -- as soon as I saw the FJ clue I got an earworm from "Alma, Tell Us" that lasted about half an hour. "While married to Gus she met Gropius, And soon she was swinging with Walter. Gus died and her teardrops were copious. She cried all the way to the altar. Bu...

Re: Monday, September 10, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Thought of Indonesia first, wasn't sure where it was relative to the equator, figured there was nothing preventing a coastal trip and came up with.... Chile. Oof. Same incorrect conclusion here. Figured if someone kayaked along the coast within territorial waters, they were still traveling "through...

On the other hand, apparently I'm the only one so far to muck up the Revolutionary War battle question. :( That was then, this is now -- you're no longer the only one.

From topic 3: Nearly 600 people died in a 1977 collision of jumbo jets at Tenerife - one of these islands I don't think this will contain any hints, but I've spoilerized it anyway just in case. You may want to avoid this if you haven't answered that topic. I think I answered a different clue for the...

The 76-km border question was a toughie - glad I went with my instincts. :D On the other hand, apparently I'm the only one so far to muck up the Revolutionary War battle question. :(

Re: Summer Hiatus Challenge 2018--Round 6 Instant Replay (SPOILERS)

Oof -- I spent several minutes fruitlessly studying the adventure game consonants before admitting defeat. After seeing several answers, I'm glad I didn't spend more time -- I could have studied them for DAYS and still not come up with a reasonable guess -- it was a pretty bleak dance on my part.

Re: Summer Hiatus Challenge 2018--Round 5 Instant Replay (SPOILERS)

I don't know yet what the answer for the R5D6 10-pointer is, but.. I feel like there's room for a few answers. None of them felt "right" to me, merely acceptable if I wished to argue them. But I didn't want to insist "guy cry" was worth 10 points, or even "reborn forlorn." "Glistening christening" ...
