Re: LL80: LearnedLeague

Losing to a 9(6) on day 1? That's more like it. I was tempted near the end to throw games to stay out of A, because sometimes it's just not fun. I lost to the same score, but down in C.... Somebody in D Magnolia 2 lost to my second ever beer yesterday...I got somewhat lucky with the questions being...

Re: LL80: LearnedLeague

Interesting first day. I won 9(5)-3(2) and was very surprised my opponent got so few correct. I found it to be a difficult day to defend. There didn't seem to be a clear zero-pointer, nor was there a clear three-pointer. All six questions seemed gettable, but not easy. My miss was going with "Help!...

Re: LL80: LearnedLeague

Koin was on fire yesterday and I did not know it was 3 sided at times...Measles/Mumps/Rubella, Help!/Hard Days Night, Athens/Sparta all contributing to a 1(2)-4(4) loss...I should've had Athens at least as I knew Sparta was somewhat inland, but other than knowing I'm not sure how I could know that o...

Re: LL79: For the LLamas

I've shot myself in the foot so many times in the Womens ML...Only put chromosome on day 1, cost me a win. The whole Sherlock Holmes thing on Day 2 ended up costing me a win (lost by 2, Opp gave me 0 and I gave her 3, both of us have lit as a worst category). Day 5 lost 0(1) - 1(1), and yesterday lo...

Re: LL79: For the LLamas

Defense is always fun in mini leagues. Yesterday I assigned zero to the Ted Nugent question and my opponent assigned it three. Conversely, I assigned three to De Stijl and he assigned it zero. We both got De Stijl, but he missed Nugent. It sure is. In the France ML, my opponent got Moulin Rouge (wh...

Re: LL79: For the LLamas

I knew from the sample questions that the France minileague was going to be tough... but ooh la la. Not so proud of my 0(1) - 1(1) loss, but I'm not alone. Check out some of the groups, like group 1: https://learnedleague.com/mini/france/index.php?mltabs=0 So the only one with more than 1 TCA is so...

Re: LL79: For the LLamas

Chrissie Hynde was one I could've gotten right also but I went with Stevie Nicks... You aren't the person who started that Kosman Koin thread that began with this, are you? Mine has Chrissy Hynde on one side and Stevie Nicks on the other. Not that I can tell the difference. My hunch is Chrissie Hyn...

Re: LL79: For the LLamas

I've been following the ML and have known a grand total of 4 answers in the first 3 days..... That's exactly my total (Runaways, Honeydrippers, Syd Barrett, Freed). Runaways, Chinese Democracy, Freed is my running list. It's been...sobering. I'm playing this ML since I thought I knew things about R...

Re: TD 407 - Mini-TD #6 - FINAL STANDINGS

Thanks Morbeedo, these quick ones are fun. Picked the wrong question to sheep but I can only name a few cities in Israel sadly, although I should've just gone with Jerusalem.

Re: LL79: For the LLamas

Might've bitten off more than I can chew with the Rock and Roll ML. Took a bagel on day 1, although if I'd been able to remember the name of the band from the recent J! champion I would've pulled out a miracle 3(1) -2 (2) win. I went the Public Enemy route with the hip hop/hall of fame question and ...

Also, can a grammar person (which I am not) tell me which word is the preposition from Q6 yesterday? I also thought articles were parts of speech and ruled out interjections as a basic part of speech.

Re: LL79: For the LLamas

I'm still clinging to 3rd place and promotion to C Magnolia but have gone 1-3-1 in my last 5 matches including a Buckner tie (does that exist?) 3(3) - 3(1) where my opponents worst category for the day was easily film and I underestimated the difficulty of both the black bottom and opera questions. ...

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...
