Re: Monday, April 15, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

"Structure in Genesis" seemed like negbait for Noah's Ark. "6 1/2-foot tall painting" was sufficient to nip any ambiguity about that in the bud. Not necessarily. The Ark was huge too, and I could see someone making a really big painting of that. FWIW, I shouted out Ark as well, but the reference to...

Re: Online Test Recap & Discussion (Pacific), April 11, 2019

Asking us to solve and then type "Call of the Wild Blue Yonder" was a bit harsh. My typing stinks; I think I said "Call of HE Wild Blue Yonder" and ran out of time.

Re: Online Test Recap & Discussion (Central), April 10, 2019

People keep complaining about technical issues with the test. I hope they don't have to start over with new tests! "Technical issues" with the test happen with some people every year, though. User error then? It seems like @jeopardy has been pretty responsive, but these people only have 1 more chan...

It may be good, but does a 5 year old record really count as a “classic album”?

Re: Tuesday, December 18, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Aside from Jackie's current run (and celebrity games), has there ever been a better chance of a contestant herself being the response/subject of a clue in a game she was playing? The Runaways appear in the archive a few times (the clue on June 21, 2017 even named many of the band members, but not J...

Re: Thursday, December 20, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

The “In God We Trust” clue mentioned the “7th District Court.” There is no such thing, at least on the federal level. I think the writers meant the Eighth Circuit Court of Appeals, which is the court that issued the recent ruling.

Re: Thursday, December 6, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

That was one ugly J! round as the players were slow to get untracked. Given my previous post in this thread, perhaps I shouldn't make this comment. To me, "untracked" is a negative thing, as in "derailed". Perhaps you meant "on track". Or perhaps the language is changing again without my knowledge ...

FWIW, I pronounce the L in all of those words except for Calf. Also FWIW, at times I can be insufferably pedantic. Me too, on both counts. I also had a problem with saying that "Loki" and "low-key" are homonyms. I suppose one could emphasize the first syllable in "low-key" to make the clue work, bu...

"Black and Tan" cost me the run in "Black", swift (can't say I've heard of it) in Roost-ers, and "Woman Crush Wednesday" (dafuq) in Abbrev. Here's a helpful tip: never order a "Black and Tan" in an Irish pub. If the bartender is a true Irishman you will get a harsh glare at the very least. Order a ...

Tombaugh meant nothing to me. The clue initially left me blank; I was trying to connect something in the solar system to Norse mythology and kept coming up empty. First wrote down "moon" just to have something and then at the last possible moment said "aw, heck" and shifted gears correctly on the b...
