Add a third for pugilistic. And another for idiom.


Did anyone think Andrew got away with "Shiners" instead of "Shriners"? Maybe it was just me.
Yes. I did.

Re: Tuesday, November 5, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

shouldn't the answer to the clue regarding methodious and cyril and fathers of this system have been cyrillic alphabet? they created that alphabet and it wasn't the first alphabet in the world My sentiments as well. My LT: Mull, Havisham, Iconoclast, Cyrillic alphabet, Arizona. FJ: Thought about Ne...

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

This was a good first game. The players were evenly matched up. Gilbert had trouble getting going in DJ after a rock solid Jeopardy round but did enough to win it. I now agree with those who say he should have maxed out his wager but his wager wasn’t terrible - if facing a potential WC, wagering to...

I would much rather have lost a game of J by not knowing the final, than by not having bet enough and been correct. Just my opinion.

At the outset of the show Alex said something about today being the "Ides of December". Wouldn't that make it the 15th of the month? :?

There sure have been a lot of unanswered clues on J lately. I had 10 LT's Tuesday. Got the final after first saying Conference but changing to Congress in plenty of time.

Final: wrong, natch. NHO Petain. Besides, French politics of the 19th and 20th centuries is a complicated mess. How many governments did they run through from the early 1800s until post WWII? Legitimate and otherwise? Too darn many! ;) The heroes of the previous government quickly become the traito...

I got tons of LT: McCloud, Snowy River, Plus 4's, Jay Rockefeller, 3 PM, Tense, Ruth, Corinth. Also an instaget on FJ. I missed plenty of other stuff though. Another intensely exciting game.

Re: Monday, November 13, 2017 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

I wonder if the judges would have accepted "ascetic" for "mendicant" in that Franciscan clue. Mendicant is a technical term that describes an order that takes vows of poverty (not just the individuals, but the whole order). Thus, these orders (or the members of these orders) have to beg for their s...

Exciting game. LT: Magnet school, On top of the world, Labrador, Grey Friars, Van Allen Belts. I only got the final correct from having watched J over the years. Once again, what a great game.

Forgive my ignorance but what do the ribbons the contestants were wearing represent and what color are they?
The blue ribbons were in honor of Cindy Stowell.
She was inspiring. Thank you.

Re: The Buzz on Buzzy

From the 1st time my wife and I saw Buzzy we loved him. He seems to be a likeable guy but what really gets me is his "look". He reminds me of a young Benny Goodman. He doesn't totally dominate games (though there have been several lockouts), but he seems to go on short runs of 4 or 5 in a row and th...
