Re: LL79: For the LLamas

I started with jumped, then went through the whole alphabet and realized, hey there's no s in there and changed it to jumps. Didn't matter as my dream season rolled on with a 3(3)- 0(0) win to maintain first place in DMag1.

Re: LL79: For the LLamas

I think my name will be high on the "luckiest llama" list this year. I ended up tying yesterday 2(2)-2(2) getting only Denver and Too Big to Fail despite being sure I was getting at least 4 right. I totally glossed over the year part of the Zaire question (which would've lead me to Zaire) and went w...

Re: LL79: For the LLamas

Maybe Thorsten is reading all these posts here and other places about how easy this season has been. Wow, I got crushed by the set of questions yesterday. I only got Shoot the Moon, as Hearts was and is a go-to card game for me and friends/family and was a game I had on my ipod in years past. I also...

Re: LL79: For the LLamas

I tied Sillymoose yesterday 3(3)-3(3). I got Nova Scotia (been there several times), UCLA, and Clubber Lang (Rocky III is my favorite of the series). I didn't realize the Grey Poupon connection and had already set my mind on sunflowers anyway. I answered Gandhi without much confidence, but figured i...

Re: LL79: For the LLamas

I've finally figured out how to win LL matches: Get q's in your good categories wrong and q's in the your bad categories correct. Case in point yesterday where I got sports and film wrong and lit/WH correct (as well as pneumatics) leading to a 6(3) - 3(3) win. For the fencing question I was thrown o...

Re: LL79: For the LLamas

I think I'm going to sit out next season. Actually, I really don't even want to finish the rest of this season. I didn't start out the season very well, and had a hard time with yesteday's questions. I thought that my guess of Obama was pretty good, and my other educated guess was Julius Caesar bas...

Re: LL79: For the LLamas

I feel like this season has been hard for defense as the question categories are somewhat vague to me. I mean, I'm terrible at Classical Music in general, but knew Juilliard cold and figured most people would be able to figure it out. I also wasn't sure how to classify the normal school Q, and I cer...

Re: LL79: For the LLamas

Opened the season 1-0-1 with a predictable 3(3)-3(3) tie on Day 1 (got St Elmo, Bills, and Singapore, and missed out on the age question with Stone, Copper, Bronze) and a 5(3) -1(2) win yesterday. I initially had Mein Kampf for Q5, but then thought, that's a book not a document, and switched to Comm...

Re: LearnedLeague 78 - Official Thread

I'm playing all three MLs and the only one I have a chance to be a finalist in is JA2. I'm in 6th place, but second is only 2 points ahead of me and I play the people in 2nd, 3rd, and 4th to finish it off. I'm last in the ES one despite getting my fair share of correct answers and the Style ML has p...

Re: LearnedLeague 78 - Official Thread

On MD3, I ended up getting 11 of the 18 questions correct. Not bad I thought... Looked at the results today and went 0-2-1 with 14 CAA. And...the tie was 9(6)-9(6) in JA2. I have over 0.750 DE in all 3 groups, but I'm also leading 2 of the 3 groups in CAA (ES and Style3, and neither is really close)...

Re: LearnedLeague 78 - Official Thread

Environmental Science Group 22 Just Audio 2 Group 8 Style 3 Group 22 As a middle of the road D rundle player, these MLs are an interesting mix. I ended up playing A rundlers in all 3 matches yesterday. I just missed out a beer on JA2 as I couldn't remember Phil from the Amazing Race's last name, but...

Re: LearnedLeague 78 - Official Thread

Although I lost yesterday, I managed to meet my goal of not being relegated from D Magnolia 2, finishing 13th at 9-10-6 thanks to being 5th in TCA to offset having the 3rd highest CAA and a horrible defense of .643. I gave up two 8(4)'s and a 7(3) and generally had a terrible time figuring out defen...

Re: LearnedLeague 78 - Official Thread

I wonder how many spellings of pyrrhus were accepted yesterday. I wasn't sure if it ended in us or os, but ended up guessing right.

Won 5(3)-0(0), missing death, the cheese one, and Ariana Grande. I've never heard the song but both my wife and my 2 daughters knew it...

Re: LearnedLeague 78 - Official Thread

So who pissed in Thorsten's cornflakes last week? Yeesh. Is this in response to SmitheeA or the 13 made inactive? Nope, just the level of difficulty I've encountered of late. Maybe it's just me, but overall league get rates have been down the last few days as well. Ah I see and I would agree. Thurs...
