Re: Monday, November 4, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Since he hasn't weighed in yet, I guess I'll play the role of TPH for this game. I "knew" the famous run associated with the battle was a lot shorter, so a 150 mile run couldn't be pointing to THAT battle. So it must be something else. Ended up staring at FJ today. :oops: My thinking was similar. I...

Re: Thursday, September 26, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I'm surprised it took so long in the thread to get around to the wrong answer from New York. I went there almost immediately and couldn't shake it. Most frustrating to me is the fact that the whole "world something means not USA" was discussed earlier this week. And I let that slip away so quickly....

Re: Thursday, September 26, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Sydney Opera House never occurred to me. I focused on “eight wonder,” which took me to the Astrodome, and I never moved even though 1973 seemed kind of late for that building. (Turns out it opened in 1965.)

Re: Monday, September 23, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I had no idea for FJ! - I associate Chagall with stained glass. And my knowledge of Fiddler was that it was inspired by the writings of Sholem Aleichem, so I didn't have any avenue to come up with the answer. from page one of the "Pavlov Revival" thread (https://jboard.tv/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=343)(r...

Re: Monday, September 23, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

The Pavlov for Chagall for me is "Russian Jewish painter". What musical could be about Russian Jews? Fiddler is the most likely candidate. Same here. Too bad that nobody even guessed on the “sgt Pepper” clue. Given the precedent from a few years ago I wonder if they would have required the complete...

The Maltese Falcon hint was useless to me. Once you get past Humphrey Bogart, "Play it, Sam," and "Of all the gin joints ..." I've exhausted my knowledge of the film.
Your knowledge of the film is even less than you think it is... ;)

that metal category was a joke...all easy and not even sure if def leppard, twisted sister and motley crue are even considered metal anymore

It made no difference, and is petty considering how things turned out, but Tabitha said negligence was the opposite of attentive , when the clue called for an adjective, and I was disappointed that no reversal ever came...

Re: Monday, September 9, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I thought the 2 name category in DJ was poorly done. Alex, in his instructions and in providing the correct responses, gave two names, but the contestants kept doing portmanteaus. Obviously they would have accepted either, but this could have been explained better.

Loved the Goliathtown response.

I know these are reruns so this was probably discussed a while back, but on Friday’s episode, did I miss something or did the contestant actually choose to walk away without using all of her lifelines? No. She got to the $7000 question ("Besides Q, which letter is the only one NOT to appear in any ...

I have seen the movie and remember the basic concept of that scene, but I had no memory that the word glitch was in it. Even if I had, I would not have known that the astronauts themselves actually originated the word. I actually got this one on the grounds of "What else could it be?," but I never ...

nobody else wondering why they allowed the 1000 wager when he said all in and only had 200? Allowed it? I'd wager Dave doesn't know much about gambling, but I think his intentions (if not his "boss's") were carried out... I disagree. I think they need to take the contestant as literally as possible...

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...

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.
