Re: Tuesday, October 16, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

32,600 coryat. Ran Sports Stars, 1800s/Today's Tech, and Final Film Role. Prairie's gutsy all in on DD1 had me rooting for her to rebound. Leaving the literature and film categories for last in DJ! had me mildly rooting against all three players. This final is an example of a type of trivia question...

With its lack of quotation marks/title case, do you think the judges would have accepted "Earth" for this clue? ;)

Re: FJs for the 10/8/18 week

:( :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :( An astounding misread of Monday's clue being about the Supreme Court Building and not the Capitol lead me to pick Solomon over Moses. Instagets Tuesday, Wednesday, and Friday. Came pretty quickly to Brigadoon off of the year and think...

Re: Thursday, October 11, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

27,200 coryat.

Not quite an instaget on final but I was pretty sure Brigadoon was from around then and thought "briga" sounds like bridge.

Re: Wednesday, October 10, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

35,000 coryat. Instaget final. TPH: The "word" in the Out! category for $2000 was "Outgrabe". From that incredibly stupid nonsense poem by Lewis Carroll, "Jabberwocky". I never heard that outgrabe thingy before, either. I doubt you're missing anything (except a few correct J! responses) by not knowi...

Re: Monday, October 8, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

27,800 coryat. My attention to detail/reading comprehension on final was severely impaired. First thought was Moses but switched to Solomon because he was a judge and would make more sense for the Supreme Court. Googled Supreme Court Building statues and found statues of both Moses and Solomon. When...

Re: Friday, October 5, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

33,800 coryat.

With the mention of "Supreme Allied Commander", I immediately went to D-Day. The whole way through think music I thought there had to be more to this clue but I couldn't come up with any other plausible answer. That was a supremely boring question. :|

27,600 coryat. Ugh. I couldn't stop thinking about the high value of cheese within the Italian economy for the whole of think music, but couldn't get that to jibe with " liquid gold." I paused it after the music ended and it took me another thirty seconds to recall reading about the adulterated oliv...

Calvin = Switzerland + lakeside city = Geneva.

Big ups to Doug for the TDD in the J! round. Every other contestant should do it too, but too few do.

28,200 coryat. Instaget final. I'm not surprised when there's a triple stumper on the show (sometimes three people will not know even a seemingly easy question) but I'm blown away by the board's general unfamiliarity with the term. I've never lived anywhere near Hollywood and I've come across the us...

Re: Monday, October 1, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

35,000 coryat. Couldn't get past Madame Bovary as an answer since my brother (who was correct on final) read it recently and we were talking about it over the weekend. It fit the category and is usually touted as one of the best, but I was sure it was written in the 1850s. I completely passed over "...

:mrgreen: :mrgreen: :roll:

Instagets M, W, Th, F.
Tuesday came quick after getting past Alex's accent.
Had Friday's question before Alex got to the quote.

Damn those bland Mancunian bastards and their saccharine, forgettable songs! :x

31,000 coryat. Instaget before Alex got to the quote for a 5/5 week on finals. Since it was restricted to only 10 possible answers, I was surprised they left "20th Century Decades" for last resulting in an unplayed clue. Boo hiss! I don't recognize the name Jane Rizzoli at all. Only 5 other archive ...

Re: Thursday, September 27, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

40,400 coryat, my top score so far this young season. Instaget final. I think part of my mental dead-end was that I didn't know the Alamo had any religious significance. I thought it was just a fort. So "Catholic" misled me into thinking maybe there was a famous church or religious-themed structure ...

25,600 coryat. Instaget final. Not surprised the video game category played hard (especially with that negbait Pixar/Disney question in the top box). Destiny and Elder Scrolls are huge series but haven't penetrated much outside gaming and into the wider consciousness. Somewhat surprised no one knew ...

35,800 coryat.

Alex's accent actually hindered my thinking through final but "20th Century Plays" + "preface" pointed me towards Shaw and with an English setting, Pygmalion seemed like a safe bet.

Re: Monday, September 24, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

"Words from the comics" was a good category for me as well. But, in an interesting aside, Kryptonite did not originate in the comic books, but on the radio version of The Adventures of Superman . Turned out that Bud Collyer, who voiced Supes, wanted a vacation, so they invented the substance that w...
