Re: Tuesday, March 24, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Nice work Nick. I think we were at the same audition last November in MKE (but I can't be sure since I was pretty much just focused on trying not to suck).

I knew who they were talking about in FJ, but I got as far as "Emma somebody". I just didn't remember the last name.

Re: Monday, March 23, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

How often does the leader A) fail to make a cover wager, and B) get FJ right and still lose because of said wager? I guess the follow up question is how often does 2nd place actually go for the double? Can't be that often, right? No more than a few times a season would be my guess. Off the top of m...

Re: Learned League 84

Last day, and it's been a roller coaster of a ride for me. Not winning in the first 7 match days, then went on a streak to peak at 12th in my rundle, to losing 3 in a row, two of which by defense, I'm now in the relegation zone. A win doesn't guarantee me getting out of it. I might be going from E -...

Re: Friday, March 13, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I didn't know what Latin for "white" was so I went the other way, starting with sea birds first. Swan, penguin, pelican, oooh pelican, that sounds maybe Latinish? Let me keep going. Albatross... wait, albinos are white, is that the same root? Well, let's go with it.

Woohoo!

What was the TOM for House of Representatives in Court for $400? That whole category was absolute gibberish to me. 420-1. What other body do you know of which has that many members? Sadly, I couldn't pull the trigger in time, thinking it might have been House of Commons or something like that, but ...

Not a good day for me. Basically clammed up during the entire "Last Novels" category. Negged with "Walking Stick Insect" over stickbug... What makes you think that's a neg?

Not a good day for me. Basically clammed up during the entire "Last Novels" category. Negged with "Walking Stick Insect" over stickbug, Triton instead of saying Neptune for some reason. Only got 400/2000 in Foe Pas. Did get FJ though and the Methodist DJ. I probably jump the gun and say "Evanston" i...

Egypt and Saudi Arabia here. Now that I look at the list, I can see how far off I was. I figured India was more Hindu than Muslim, but even so, the population difference is enough to make India way more than either of the two.

Today I Learned: the game "Cootie" isn't anywhere near as universally known as I thought. To be fair, I knew exactly which game the question was about, but couldn't remember the title. Literally me. I can see the game in my head, I can see the game on the shelves at Target, but I couldn't remember ...

Judges, if I said "cuff" instead of "collar" do you think that's acceptable?

Re: Thursday, March 5, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Island of Dr. Moreau definitely crossed my mind, but didn't think it was British, unfortunately I know nothing about the book/movie at all. Like Zahkia, I went with Frankenstein.

Edit: Oh crap, the clue said "the title setting" of this novel. Yeah, I should have gone with it then.

Ova = Eggs. Kids' book with "egg" in the title? Uh... "virent" sounds like verde/veridian/green, so let's do Green Eggs and Ham. For as much crap as we give you, I'm glad you made the connection and got this. I was a slow pony today. Missing nearly all of the "List" category, even though I have hea...

Never heard of the Niagara term, but if faced with the DD, that's what I'm guessing. I also neg with Clare de Lune for Debussy, and I'm not actually sure if I come up with Harvest Moon in time. Maybe I should pause when faced with a DD to see if I can get it. How much time do they get? 5 seconds? I ...

Re: Learned League 84

I won thanks to getting three for the Oklahoma drill, despite my high get rate on sports. I got a chuckle that Alabama was the MCWA. Can't say I ever recall hearing of the Oklahoma drill. That and "Oklahoma" is not a geographic name. Answered "Oklahomas" and got credit for it. The Oklahoma drill li...

Re: Thursday, February 27, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I remember this one getting a lot of discussion in the daily thread, and IIRC the consensus was that either just "Curie" or "Madame Curie" should have been enough. Huh, I would definitely think this is a case where you'd need to specify Marie. I'm surprised most people thought just "Curie" should b...

Re: TPH on TPH, or How I Should Learn to Stop Worrying and Love the Show

I did pass an online test and apparently held my own in a live audition, and I've already proven myself on another game show, so I can't be that out of my league. This right here is exactly why I have to wonder how anyone can believe any of what you post is anything but trolling. The vast amount of...

Getting crushed right now, 0-4-2 after getting relegated back to D rundle. I'll have to hope for some lucky matchups here on out.
